ATM Management with Luciad

Severe weather can have a significant impact on the ATM system and on flight operations, causing delays, capacity issues and safety concerns.

This demonstrator is a cooperation between Lufthansa Systems, SAP, and Luciad. It shows how the impact of weather events can be easily analyzed and how impacted flights can be rerouted live, taking into account live & forecast weather data and cost-related parameters such as estimated fuel consumption and expected delays. Lufthansa System's intelligent and timely rerouting can save an airline hundreds of thousands euros. Featured use cases include an eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland and a hurricane approaching the East Coast of the United States. SAP HANA provides the high-performance big data access and analysis capabilities which are brought to the user by the GPU-accelerated LuciadLightspeed application, providing real-time situational awareness and decision-making.
