Abstract
The definition of a set of precursory safety metrics is critical to detect when an airspace is degrading in terms of safety and thus undesired effects are more likely. Furthermore, safety metrics are paramount to the measurement of the impact of new operational procedures or technical improvements on the Air Traffic Control system. The study presented in this paper introduces three safety metrics (Reaction Time Performance Indicator, Time to Closest Point of Approach Performance Indicator, and Time to Closest Point of Approach Critical Limit Ratio) derived from a given airspace and a sizable, assorted traffic sample extracted from traffic surveillance track data. The metrics are used to characterize the airspace as a function of the safety outcome, which can be continuously oversighted. The final goal of the safety metrics is to be used as an airspace safety warning system, where precursory metrics would signal the need to act to maintain the Air Traffic Control system safety target on the face of operational, organizational, technical and/or legal changes.
