Automatic Dependent Broadcast-Surveillance (ADS- B) was introduced to increase the safety of air travel. Since then it has proven to be a useful source of air traffic data for academic research because it is publicly available. Another source of information are the communications between air traffic control (ATC) and aircraft. Methods are (being...

Due to the continuous growth of air traffic up to the year 2020, the air transportation network has become more complex, and the airports and airspace busier. However, capacities have not grown at the same rate as air traffic, making Air Traffic Control one of the most encountered primary delays. A data driven approach is taken in order to...

Future ATM systems will rely on automation to make operations more efficient. Creating insight into the inner-workings of automation, also known as agent transparency, is expected to play an important role for effective human-machine collaboration. This research proposes an ecological approach to increase agent transparency in automated...

The current ATC system is seen as the most significant limitation to coping with an increased air traffic density. Transitioning towards an ATC system with a high degree of automation is essential to cope with future traffic demand of the airspace. In recent studies, reinforcement learning has shown promising results automating Conflict...

Bird strike prevention in civil aviation has traditionally focused on the airport perimeter. Since the risk of especially damaging bird strikes outside the airport boundaries is rising, this PhD thesis researches the safety potential of operational bird strike prevention involving pilots and controllers. In such a concept, controllers would be...

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. The use of drones for applications such as package delivery, would result in traffic densities that are orders of magnitude higher than those currently...

Allocation is a challenge for higher levels of automation in air traffic control, where flights can be dynamically assigned to either a human or an automated agent. Through an exploratory experiment with six professional air traffic controllers, insight was gained into the possibilities and challenges of human-automation teamwork in an en-route...

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...

Ottenhoff, Matthijs (author)
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...

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...
