The aviation industry's shift towards sustainable propulsion, notably hydrogen-electric propulsion (HEPS), underscores the need to grasp its effects on flight procedures and pilot duties. This research aims to develop a HEPS engine powertrain model for evaluating its influence on flight procedures, especially during critical phases like go...

Haptic shared controllers (HSCs) are a promising solution to prevent human over-reliance on automation during tasks such as car driving. However, research has shown that if the HSC is tuned incorrectly, then there is a risk of haptic conflicts between the human and HSC. To address this challenge, this paper presents the design and implementation...

This study presents a new approach for integrated tail assignment and maintenance task scheduling decision support. Wasted maintenance resources, restricted fleet availability for schedule flexibility, inconsistent planning, and no emphasis on schedule resilience are all inefficiencies that now arise from airlines' separate and manual tail...

Aircraft emissions can pose a health threat by degrading air quality. The actual pollution footprint of aircraft is however not well understood. This research therefore explores the potential of performing near-runway measurements with low-cost sensor nodes to analyse the plume composition and pollutant contribution of individual aircraft. The...

Increasing levels of automation in the ATM system are required to allow for higher traffic densities without exceeding the ATCo’s mental capacity. Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre envisions to first automate the control of, so called, ``basic’’ traffic. For this strategy to work, an allocation model is required to determine the complexity of...

Aircraft maintenance is critical to an airline's operations to ensure the reliability, availability, and safety of their assets. Recently, the approach of using component prognostics in aircraft maintenance has received increasing attention in academic- and industrial research. Predictive maintenance has demonstrated promising results in using...

Margins for cargo airlines that were already thin have been put further under pressure, which stresses the importance of operating a profitable schedule. Research on modelling passenger operations has proven that integrating different steps in the schedule planning process can yield a significant increase in profit. For cargo operations no...

Helicopter pilot performance in degraded visual conditions may be improved through sensor fusion and an augmented reality (AR) display. A simulator experiment with 12 participants was done to test the effect of synthetic terrain grid cell size and helicopter heave dynamics on task performance and control behaviour in a terrain-following hill...
