Keywords: wake vortex, gbas, dynamic separation, approach
A concept for using wake vortex predictions to optimize approach separation is introduced. The goal is an improvement of airport capacity by dynamically changing the separation minima. This concept can even enhance wake vortex safety in closely spaced runway operations.
