multilayer approach to the prevention of conflicts due to the loss of aircraft -to -aircraft separation which relies on procedures and on -board automation was implemented as part of the SATS HVO Concept of Operations. The multilayer system gives pilots support and guidance during the execution of normal operations and advance warning for procedure deviations or off -nominal operations. This paper describes the major concept elements of this multilayer approach to separation assurance and conflict prevention and provides the rationale for its design. All the algorithms and functionality described in this paper have been implemented in an aircraft simulation in the NASA Langley Research Center’s Air Traffic Operation Lab and on the NASA Cirrus SR22 research aircraft.
