Rowntree, Timon (author)
For future operations of unmanned aviation, even higher traffic densities than previously seen in manned aviation are expected. Previous work has shown that a vertically layered airspace design performs best at improving safety metrics such as the total number of conflicts and Losses of Separation (LoSs). Furthermore, it has been shown that...

In order to enable the safe and efficient integration of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles into very low level airspace, modern day research focuses on the development of new traffic services and procedures. One of these is the geovectoring protocol, which aims to reduce traffic complexity by setting limits on the allowed ground speed, course, and...

Cuppen, Daan (author)
To facilitate an increase in air traffic volume and to allow for more flexibility in the flight paths of aircraft, an abundance of decentralized conflict resolution (CR) algorithms have been developed. The efficiency of such algorithms often deteriorates when employed in high traffic densities. Several methods have tried to prioritize certain...

In an effort to increase the operational efficiency in the North Atlantic region, the benefits of a decentralized, wind-optimal routing structure are researched. Such a routing structure allows for direct routing by optimizing trajectories on the individual level. Implementing a tactical conflict detection and resolution method eliminates the...

Aarts, Michiel (author)
The traffic density of small aerial vehicles operating within urban environments is expected to increase significantly in the near future. This urban environment is highly constrained due to being limited to the low-altitude airspace directly above the existing road network. To increase understanding of the factors influencing the capacity of...

Voorhoeve, Salomon (author)
The applicability of conflict rate models to controlled, structured, terminal airspace is investigated. A collision rate model is adapted to conflicts between flows of aircraft, and its validity is empirically confirmed. Conflicts are divided into between-flow conflicts and within-flow conflicts. Applicability to a terminal airspace without...

Kuperus, Thomas (author)
Increased air traffic activity has caused strain on current air traffic management systems. Through decentralization of air traffic control, this strain can be released and airspace capacity, safety and flight efficiency can be increased. The Modified Voltage Potential is a decentralized conflict detection and resolution method based on a force...

Jacobse, Ruben (author)
The maximum workload for air traffic control officers is a key constraint on the capacity of the airspace system. In the free flight concept air traffic control is removed and aircraft themselves take over its responsibilities. The Modified Voltage Potential (MVP) algorithm is an implementation of this concept. However, its use in the presence...

Data-driven trajectory prediction is one of the key pillars of the future ATM system. Recent research focuses on using novel data sources and machine learning algorithms to improve the performance of 4D trajectory prediction, enabling safer and more efficient routing of aircraft. In this paper a framework for data sourcing and preparation for...

Schaberg, Wouter (author)
In an effort to increase airspace capacity, new methods for the decentralization of air traffic control have been a topic for research since the early nineties. The Modified Voltage Potential is a method to provide decentralized conflict detection and resolution. Through this method, aircraft can fly direct routes while resolving conflicts in a...

Janowski, Jakub (author)
The resilience of the Air Traffic Management (ATM) system to disturbances is required to maintain high operation performance. Before it can be improved, the resilience of the ATM system must be quantified. The measurement of resilience requires knowledge of a system reference state. This thesis proposes a novel methodology to detect disruptions...

Sakyi-Gyinae, Master (author)
With the increasing trend in air traffic demand and evidence of large deviations from filed flight plans, airspace capacity is not being optimally utilized. In order to improve air traffic flow and capacity management systems, so that air traffic control operators can handle more aircraft safely, air traffic predictability needs to be improved....

Major delivery companies such as DHL, UPS or Amazon have been developing small drones to deliver packages. This alternative to truck delivery is expected to start operating in the near future. The advantages of it are its speed, price, safety and sustainability: parcels would not be subjected to traffic and they would be delivered within an hour...

Pappie, Gideon (author)
As the amount of air traffic increases every year, the capacity of the current Air Traffic Control (ATC) structure is reaching its limit. Shifting the responsibility of aircraft separation from the ground to aircraft (free flight) eliminates the ATC constraint for aviation growth. Furthermore, free flight allows for direct routing of aircraft....

Klapwijk, Jeffrey (author)
Continuous Climb Operations aim at improving the efficiency of a flight's climb phase by reducing the number of level-offs. The associated fuel-benefits help airlines and airports to comply with future emission demands, rising fuel prices and modernizing airspace requirements. Previously, most studies in this field only considered the effect of...

In an effort to accommodate the increasing air traffic demand, research is conducted to increase future airspace capacity. In addition to the growing demand, new forms of air transport are entering the market. Although a distributed control strategy seems unavoidable to cope with the introduction of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Personal Air...

Decentralized airspace concepts have been proposed to increase the capacity of airspace. Previous research has showed that decentralized airspace concepts show great improvements in capacity, such as the Layers concept, where height rules are implemented, and unstructured airspace, where there are no procedural constraints. One aspect that...

Currently, Air Traffic Control is responsible for the separation of air traffic in our limited airspace. To facilitate the continuing growth of air traffic, an ambitious plan is to give the responsibility of the separation task to the pilots of the aircraft. The behavior of existing conflict resolution methods within this decentralized approach...
