I am interested in studying ICAO's Continuous Climb Operations design strategy, however I have some trouble understanding how the procedure designers take into consideration the traffic flow from neighboring arrival procedures, in order to avoid conflicts with their proposed departure procedure (optimized for continuous climb).
Doc 9993 (Draft version) states:
126.96.36.199 Traffic Avoidance. In the most optimum situation, a departure route should be designed in such a way that there is no restriction that prevents an aircraft continuing its optimum flight profile. Both, the arrival (STAR) and the departure (SID) should be de-conflicted laterally or vertically. This optimum situation may not be reachable and therefore a balance must be found between the arrival and the departure routes.
However, even if one makes the assumption that an IAP has a somewhat self-explanatory altitude profile, at least where the glide slope interception begins, this is clearly not the case for STARs. There are charts which do not provide a starting altitude for their depicted arrival procedures, something that makes the estimation of the aircraft's altitude during the route traversal even harder. On top of that, there are arrival procedures that do not have any altitude constraint at all, such as GATBY ONE.
Anything that could point me into the right direction would be more than welcome.
