The introduction of Trajectory Based Operations (TBO) is set to change the operation on all levels of Air Traffic Control (ATC), including aerodrome control. Here, adherence to a planned four-dimensional trajectory is important to achieve a stable operation. At the same time, this concept provides possibilities for support tools to be used in...

With its 500.000 flights per year, Schiphol Airport is one of the busiest airports in Europe. Efficient runway use is vital for a smooth day-to-day operation. This paper investigates the new runway scheduler at Schiphol Airport, also referred to as the Departure Manager (DMAN). The new DMAN is built for a better utilisation of the outbound...

The application of automatic speech recognition in the air traffic control domain has been researched extensively. However, its primary application remains in the training and simulation of air traffic controllers. This is due to the insufficient performance of automatic speech recognition in specific environments, such as air traffic control,...

As aviation recovers to pre-pandemic levels large amounts of Air Traffic Flow Management delay also return, as the traffic at airports and in airspaces reaches their old levels. These delays have a yearly cost of around 500 million euros in the European Civil Aviation Conference area and are detrimental to the experience of passengers. This...

Air Traffic Control (ATC) is tasked with ensuring safe separation between aircraft in a given Controlled Traffic Region (CTR). To achieve this an Air Traffic Controller (ATCo) verbally gives clearances using over the air communication. These clearances are kept track of by the ATCo using so-called ‘flight-strips’, which in modern systems are...

Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) allows aircraft to broadcast their own position, speed, altitude, and other information to ground stations and other nearby aircraft. This information is then used by air traffic control for situational awareness, and collision avoidance. ADS-B spoofing is possible due to the lack of...

The joint management of airspace by human controllers and automated agents is gaining prevalence in nextgeneration Air Traffic Control (ATC). In such settings, human controllers are challenged with maintaining situation awareness while dealing with intricate and often opaque automated technologies. This study probed the potential of a concept...

THE increasing demand in worldwide air travel is foreseen to push the limits of capacity of the current Air TrafficManagement (ATM) system within the coming decade. Therefore, twomajor international programs have been initiated to fundamentally restructure the way in which Air Traffic Control (ATC) is performed. A key pillar in both programs is...

The Dutch Air Traffic Control has implemented fixed approach trajectories within approach control during night operations when traffic density is low. During the day, when traffic density is higher, vector-based operations are used. The Dutch Air Traffic Control aims to implement fixed approach trajectories when traffic density is high. This...

Increasing delays and congestion reported in many aviation sectors indicate that the current centralised operational model is rapidly approaching saturation levels. Air Traffic Control (ATC) system is not expected to keep pace with the ever-increasing demand for air transportation. Its capacity is still limited by the available controllers, and...

The number of unmanned aircraft operating in the airspace is expected to grow exponentially during the next decades. This will likely lead to traffic densities that are higher than those currently observed in civil and general aviation, and might require both a different airspace structure compared to conventional aviation, as well as different...

To facilitate a smooth integration of drones into the current Air Traffic Management (ATM) system, Unmanned Air Traffic Management (UTM) systems, services and protocols are currently under development. Unlike current ATM, UTM will rely on high levels of automation. This is potentially problematic, because 100% safe and reliable automation under...

Future concepts for Air Traffic Management (ATM) foresee—and even mandate—an increase in the distance from the destination airport at which the ATM system should start planning the arrival sequence and arrival time of inbound flights. By increasing the horizon beyond one hour before arrival, it becomes possible to timely adjust the flight path...

Aalberse, Max (author)
During the COVID-19 pandemic people living close to the airport got accustomed to less flights, and therefore less noise disturbance. Now the amount of traffic is increasing again and so is the noise disturbance. For this research specifically the optimizing task of distributing of arriving aircraft over the IAF is addressed, as often the...

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...

The airspace in western Europe is one of the most complex airspaces globally. With the air space already operating near maximum capacity, innovations are needed to increase airspace efficiency. This research aims to design and test a debunching concept for inbound air traffic to increase the efficiency of the arrival traffic stream. A...

In the future, Air Traffic Controllers are expected to work together with more advanced computer-based automation that can automatically take action. The main challenge is then how to design computer-based tools such that they foster acceptance among air traffic controllers. One possible approach to foster acceptance is by matching the automated...

Current predictions on future drone operations estimate that traffic density orders of magnitude will be higher than any observed in manned aviation. Such densities redirect the focus towards elements that can decrease conflict rate and severity, with special emphasis on airspace structures, an element that has been overlooked within...

Current predictions for future operations with drones estimate traffic densities orders of magnitude higher than any observed in manned aviation. Such densities call for further research and innovation, in particular, into conflict detection and resolution without the need for human intervention. The layered airspace concept, where aircraft...

Air traffic demand has increased at an unprecedented rate in the last decade (albeit interrupted by the COVID pandemic), but capacity has not increased at the same rate. Higher levels of automation and the implementation of decision-support tools for air traffic controllers could help increase capacity and catch up with demand. The air traffic...
