Oceanic Traffic Optimization

Daniel Delahaye
Mohammed Sbihi


Aircraft flying in continental airspace are controlled by the mean of radars with a range of about 300 Nautical Miles (1NM= 1852 m). When they enter oceanic airspace they cannot be monitored by radars anymore and typical procedures have been established in order to ensure safe navigation. Such procedures are based on an Organized Track System (OTS) which is set up on a diurnal basis to facilitate a high throughput of traffic by ensuring separation for the entire oceanic crossing. The track networks are built according to the position of the West-East jet stream. The USA-Europe network is located on the jet stream and the Europe-USA network avoid it.
