a tool designed to assist controllers in CDO sequencing and separation.

The essence of the MergeStrip concept is that, in an extended environment, a dynamic system can be used to create relative spacing instead of a static map element with fixed lateral flight path.
•Common route, for example final
•Relative Spacing Tool (here: plots on an imaginary centre line)
•High level concept of operation
•delaying manoeuvre if necessary (speed control or vectoring)
•using FMS capabilities, optimised flying towards one of the merge points
•speed control for maintaining relative spacing
