Jeppesen is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company and is recognized as one of the world’s foremost providers of information and business support solutions to the transportation industry.
Airport and airspace simulation
Jeppesen’s TAAM (total airspace and airport modeller) is the premier fast-time gate-to-gate simulator of airport and airspace operations commercially available. This sophisticated software tool simulates 4D (3D plus time) models of airspace and airports to facilitate decision support, planning and analysis.
With TAAM, an analyst can develop models of airports and/or airspace, and then evaluate the impact of changes to infrastructure, operations or schedules. TAAM will enable the operator to identify the system benefits of changes, such as building a new taxiway or re-architecting sectors, changing runway configurations or determining when saturation will be reached.
Recognised as a standard in the aviation industry, TAAM is widely used by major air navigation service providers, air carriers, leading airports, as well as aviation research establishments, system integrators and universities around the globe.
Airport and airspace design consultancy
Jeppesen’s Airspace and Airport Services team is located in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Our team has been providing procedure design services since 2000 and we have completed over 600 conventional and RNP procedures in more than 25 countries around the world.
Our procedure design team designed the original Required Navigation Performance (RNP) parallel procedures into Seattle Tacoma (SEATAC), USA. We have also designed complex procedures for Eagle, Colorado and Bermuda airfields using criteria developed in-house and approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The FAA has since adopted the same basic criteria for use in FAA order 8260.54A. Jeppesen’s procedure design services are solution-minded and we have extensive experience working with the FAA Flight Standards Office, and air traffic management services worldwide.
Procedures in accordance with host nation requirements
Our procedure design capabilities encompass all facets associated with airspace development. We design procedures in accordance with ICAO (PANS OPS), FAA (TERPS), or host nation regulatory requirements. Our capabilities include the design of any procedure based on ground-based navigational aids and satellite navigation to include PBN concepts such as RNP and RNP AR (authorization required).
Jeppesen has a long history of successful RNAV (and RNP) implementations and we plan to apply the same proven track record and integrated approach to successfully implement RNP and GNSS with NAV CANADA. In this arrangement, we offer a turn-key solution to include program management and subject matter expertise in flight operations, aircraft performance, avionics and air traffic management.
Elrey B Jeppesen started drawing maps and charts to help airmail pilots find their destinations as safely and efficiently as possible. He began selling them in 1934 and Jeppesen & Co. was born. Throughout his career, Jeppesen was a leader in aviation navigation and safety.
In 1947, he collaborated with the Civil Aeronautics Authority (precursor to the FAA) to introduce Standard Instrument Flight Procedures and helped establish the National Flight Data Center. Today, the company started by Jeppesen continues that tradition of safe, reliable navigation for pilots worldwide.
With over 75 years of quality and dedicated service to the aviation industry as a foundation, we are in an outstanding position to provide a comprehensive solution to airports, ANSPs and CAAs around the world. Our products and services are mature, well established and validated by the industry.
