The dispersion of pollutants is calculated by the Emission Dispersion Module (EDM) of AEDT, which uses the ARMOND atmospheric dispersion model.
Emissions are calculated on two dimensional grids: one for the contribution of flight segments, and the second for the impact of the movements on the ground
SARA, the environmental monitoring system made in Softech includes the AEDT new model suite as follow:
- The environmental Monitoring Stations (EMS) collect acoustic and air quality data.
- SARA transfers to AEDT study the measured data and radar tracks to get a modelling of the real environmental conditions around the airport.
