IAI's Kinematic Trajectory Generator (KTG) is medium fidelity wheels off to wheel on 4D trajectory generator that is used for modeling and simulation based validation of trajectory based operational concepts. The software is available with a bridge that is used with NASA's Airspace Concept Evaluation System (ACES). The well documented API is available to ATM users to easily integrate with other simulation framework. KTG is used by NASA for developing and validating concepts applicable to transitional airspace.
KTG describes the motion of each aircraft in two modes: trimmed mode and transition mode. The trimmed mode is governed by the kinematic aircraft data, which is defined by Eurocontrol's Base of Aircraft Data (BADA)data file derived from nominal aircraft performance. The transition mode describes the motion from one trimmed mode to another. The acceleration/deceleration during transition mode is governed by the designed controller, with acceleration/deceleration constraints computed from the Total Energy Model using the climbing and descent profile in the BADA data.
KTG generated data is validated against ETMS data and high fidelity aircraft models. KTG includes support for 1) VNAV and LNAV trajectories, 2) RNP Trajectory Change Points, 3) MCP and MCDU/FMS based trajectory modification, 4) Nominal and User descent profile, 5) users specified wind and atmosphere models and 4) high computational performance.
