High impact low probability event
The aim of this innovation project is to develop a decision-support tool by combining volcanic ash data and optimal flight-routing software, with respect to volcanic ash engine tolerance limits in terms of dosage (i.e. accumulated concentration over time). Such tool will help decision-makers assess the sensitivity of along-flight ash dosage estimations to the spatial and temporal resolution of the volcanic ash information. This will in turn enable new regulations to be developed, ultimately resulting in a more resilient UK airspace infrastructure.
