The new ATM concepts proposed by both SESAR and Next Gen require a paradigm shift from an often uncoordinated system that relies on centralized, ground-based tactical separation assurance to an integrated and coordinated one centered on strategic, collaborative trajectory management. Thus, in the future European ATM system defined by SESAR, the aircraft(More)
In this paper the effect of different aircraft automated descent guidance strategies on fuel burn and the temporal predictability of the executed trajectory is investigated. The paper aims to provide an understanding of how airborne automation can be permitted by Air Traffic Control to remain in control of the descent in the presence of disturbances while(More)
Accurate trajectory prediction is the cornerstone for future Air Traffic Management (ATM) concepts worldwide. To this purpose, researchers from Airservices Australia, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and EUROCONTROL have collaborated on research into this important topic. Trajectory prediction is the process in which the future trajectory of an(More)
