Before an aircraft enters the Terminal Manoeuvring Area (TMA) a delay may need to be introduced due to capacity limits. An Air Traffic Controller (ATCo) has the opportunity to introduce a holding procedure. When multiple aircraft need to be delayed in this form a holding stack may be formed. This holding stack is formed above the Initial...

A hierarchical bi-level model predictive controller is proposed in this thesis to reduce the computational complexity of controlling a large scale air traffic control problem, using a model predictive control approach. The bi-level controller developed and tested in this research project is a combination of a global, long-term, slow-rate,...

Current investigations into urban aerial mobility, as well as the continuing growth of global air transportation, have renewed interest in Conflict Detection and Resolution (CD&R) methods. With the new applications of drones, and the implications of a profoundly different urban airspace, new demands are placed on such algorithms, further...

As a result of the current evolution in the ATM system, a fundamental shift in the ATC work domain is foreseen from ad-hoc tactical to more strategic, 4D (i.e., space and time) trajectory management. Both the SESAR programme in Europe<br/>and the NextGen programme in the US envision a central role for the human operator, to be aided by high...

In an effort to further evaluate the effects of Ecological Interface Design on acquiring expertise, this paper presents the results of an investigation into how Ecological Interface Design could possibly promote discovery learning processes in the Air Traffic Control domain through the application of an instructional design model, and how it...

In many work domains, the push toward higher levels of automation raises the concern of diminishing human expertise. Ecological interfaces could help operators in retaining and potentially even in acquiring expertise as they are hypothesized to lead to a deeper understanding of the work domain. This study explores the short-term impact of...

To meet the increasing demands of air traffic, automated systems have been introduced to help air traffic controllers cope with the increasing air traffic in the next two decades. A challenge is that the supervision and evaluation of automated conflict detection and resolution tools have to be performed by human air traffic controllers. These...

On final approach, an Approach (APP) Air Traffic Controller (ATCo) is responsible for keeping sufficient separation between aircraft lining up on the ILS. The current industry standard is to separate these aircraft with a minimum distance, called Distance-Based Separation or DBS. European regulation requires all European airports to implement...

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 current system of Air Traffic Control (ATC) relies on a centralized control architecture. At its core, this system is heavily dependent on manual intervention by human Air Traffic Controllers (ATCos) to ensure safe operations. The capacity of this system is, therefore, closely tied to the maximum workload that can be tolerated by ATCos....

A high drop-out rate is present during current-day air traffic controller (ATCo) training, because the required expertise level is not reached. The determination of the expertise level of ATCo students is currently performed using subjective assessments at a late stage in the training by means of high-fidelity simulator sessions. It is desired...

The availability of low-cost automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) receivers has given researchers the ability to make use of large amounts of aircraft state data. This data is being used to support air transportation research in performance study, trajectory prediction, procedure analysis, and airspace design. However, aircraft...

Air Traffic Control (ATC) workload is a limiting factor for air traffic growth, creating a need for objective ATC workload metrics. Previous research has shown that the solution space diagram can be a basis for a workload prediction metric. The current solution space metric however, does not incorporate altitude. In this paper, a 3D solution...

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....

Decentralised air traffic control shifts decision making to a local level, allowing decentralised controllers to focus on solving local conflicts. Since decentralised controllers have accurate local information at their disposal, they can adapt quicker and more efficiently to changing conditions. Consequently, it is suggested that the dynamics...

LIKE many complex and time-critical domains, air traffic control (ATC) is facing a fundamental modernization that builds on the use of more advanced automation (represented by SESAR in Europe and NextGen in the United States). The current function allocation-based relationship between controller and machine is envisioned to evolve to a more...

The solution space for conflicts between aircraft consists of velocity, heading and altitude changes. In the current design of the air traffic controller workspace the instantaneous values for velocity, heading and altitude can all be found in the aircraft labels on the radar, however the heading and velocity can also be derived from the...

Air traffic demand is expected to increase, while the system is already working at its limits. New decision support tools with higher levels of automation that allow for four- dimensional (4D, i.e., space and time) trajectory-based operations are proposed to cope with the increase in traffic demand. This research presents a conceptual interface...

As air traffic controller workload is a bottleneck on air traffic growth, automation solutions have been proposed. This study investigates the effect of transparency on the acceptance of resolution advisories generated by an adaptive automation tool and the frustration experienced by controllers when using this tool. Two different kinds of...
