Title: Lateral and Longitudinal Collision Risk Assessment over the Bay of Bengal Airspace
Abstract of Talk
In this talk we will report about an on going investigation of the collision risk between two aircrafts flying over the Bay of Bengal. This safety assessment data analysis is undertaken jointly by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) and the Indian Statistical Institute, Delhi Centre under the MoA signed between the two organizations on January 13, 2011. The goal of this study is to confirm that the target level of safety (TLS) which is $5 \times 10^-9$ accidents per flight hour, is currently met. This project will eventually help the AAI to establish En-route Monitoring Agency (EMA) which is necessary for further lateral and longitudinal separation reductions. [This is a joint work with Deepayan Sarkar and BOBASMA team members from AAI.]
