The current operational practice in scheduling air traffic arriving at an airport is to adjust flight schedules by delay, i.e. a postponement of an aircraft's arrival at a scheduled location, to manage safely the FAA-mandated separation constraints between aircraft. To meet the observed and forecast growth in traffic demand, however, the practice of time(More)
This study develops a new approach for the evaluation of greener airport systems. The proposed concepts demonstrate how to implement greener practices from the early stages of an airport infrastructure project in an economically rational and stakeholder-focused manner. Objectives of the proposed methodology are twofold: (1) to promote greener design(More)
The adoption of greener construction practices occurs mostly in the realm of building projects. Existing environmental evaluations are often generic, and hence, unable to manage the complexity of larger infrastructure systems such as airports. To respond to this need, the authors of this chapter developed the theoretical grounds for the evaluation of(More)
The purpose of this study is to design new departure and arrival procedures for the SF Bay area Terminal Radar Approach Control in a NextGen environment with five anticipated new vehicles (very light jets (VLJ), cruise-efficient short take-off and landing (CESTOL), unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), civil tiltrotor (CTR), and supersonic transport (SST)), and(More)
The current trend within air traffic management (ATM), as a part of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen), is to increase the airspace system capacity to operate in diminishing capacity conditions while improving standards of safety. An extensive body of research exists regarding introducing automation into air traffic control in order to(More)
