The steady growth of air traffic volumes and the subsequent increase of congestion at major airports require airports to increase their operational efficiency. Inefficient or the absence of gate reassignment models increase the possibility and occurrence of gate blockage and at the same time reduce the comfort of passengers as they often receive...

Better predictability of future aircraft locations will result in more efficient air-traffic management operations and therefore an increase in airspace capacity. However, flight paths tend to have a stochastic character causing their predictability to decrease with the look-ahead time. In this research a quantitative analysis is made of the...

Demand for air traffic is growing worldwide. In order to accommodate this growth, existing infrastructure such as gates should be used more efficiently. One technique to increase gate utilization is by introducing gate pit-stops. Introducing gate pit-stops leads to additional towing movements which can potentially interfere with other traffic on...

Research on reinforcement learning algorithms to play complex video games have brought forth controllers surpassing human performance. This paper explores the possibilities of applying these techniques to the sequencing and spacing of aircraft. Two experiments are performed. First a single aircraft must learn to fly a 4D trajectory using only...

The purpose of this research is to investigate the effects of individually established buffer times, based on historical delay data, on the robustness of an operational stand and gate allocation schedule. Using flight schedules and the structural lay-out of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, a stand and gate allocation model is created using BEONTRA...

The master thesis is about testing the effectiveness of the Airport demand management strategies. Based on the problem of increasing pressure on airport capacity, due to the increase of the demand on flying. The goal is to find a system which supports planning of air traffic control by generating knowledge about the throughput of arrivals. A...

The most common operational measure in aviation to reduce the effect of environmental noise pollution is noise abatement procedures. Noise abatement procedures are recommended flying techniques based on noise optimal trajectories, which aim at reducing the noise impact on local communities as much as possible. Atmospheric...

With the increase in air traffic volume, aircraft are required to be equipped with a transponder by aviation authorities to increase the surveillance in air traffic control. These transponders transmit periodically Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) signals and by interrogation the Mode S signals. These signals can be received by...

The Air Traffic Management research community expects that the responsibility of maintaining a minimum safe separation distance between aircraft will move from the groundbased Air Traffic Control, a centralized system, towards the flight deck, a decentralized system. Previous research on the decentralized, also known as distributed Air Traffic...

Air traffic is growing every year and getting ever more complex. There is however no quick and robust way to analyze a traffic situation in an airspace and compare it to other, similar traffic situations. This research project proposes a new metric to compare air traffic situations in an airspace, based on geometric traffic data. The new metric...
