Volar

Based on the flight planning software Lido Flight 4D, the expansion of the new Lido Optimizer VOLAR Algorithm followed and enables the optimization of routes to avoid non-CO2 effects such as condensation trails through the usage of eco-efficient trajectories. 

In addition, VOLAR established an innovative algorithm which offers a synchronized route optimization for diverse criteria (kerosene, costs, time, climate effects).  

The CleanTech Hub is further developing VOLAR in cooperation with DLR under the Funding Framework of the Federal Republic of Germany. 

Route optimization: Hong Kong (HKG) - New York (JFK)
