To increase performance of air-to-air missile guidance, a novel guidance law is developed using reinforcement learning methods. This guidance law is based on behavior obtained from optimal control methods and subsequently aims to approximate its performance. The study compares the developed guidance law to a traditional guidance law and optimal...

Travelling by air has become commonplace, and more and more people can afford themselves to fly. In twelve years time, the amount of people that were carried by airlines doubled to four billion passengers in 2017. At Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, the main gateway into the Netherlands and also a large hub for connecting flights, saw a growth of 20...

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...

Tilt-rotor aircraft combine the helicopter’s benefit of VTOL capability and the flight performance that turboprops possess on range, speed and endurance. Tilt-rotor aircraft have the potential to decrease airport congestion and average flight delay in passenger transportation, while benefits are numerous in i.e. search and rescue, disaster...

A Hybrid Optimal Control (HOC) framework which can be used in conjunction with existing optimal control software is presented. By using hybrid optimal control theory, trajectory optimization problems for systems that are both discrete time and continuous time from a mathematical perspective can be solved. A case study on multi-aircraft formation...

Condensation trails, or contrails in short, are the white lines that can often be seen trailing high-altitude jet aircraft. Due to their interference with the local energy balance of the atmosphere they contribute to anthropogenic climate change. Research has shown strategies with great contrail mitigation potential at relatively small fuel and...
