An aircraft conflict probe is a strategic tool used by the air traffic controller to predict aircraft flight paths and to identify future conflicts. The FAA has designated the strategic conflict probe as a core function for the future ground based systems required for " Free Flight ". With these systems under development, there is a need for a generic set(More)
It is widely recommended by both academia and industry that today's technology and software engineering students be well prepared for industry before graduation, especially given global outsourcing and other trends. Various methods have been developed to ensure student readiness, including co-ops and capstone courses. These approaches increasingly use(More)

evaluate the accuracy of the conflict probes in Decision Support Tools. Since its inception, CPAT has measured the conflict prediction accuracy of the User Request Evaluation Tool (URET), 1 measured the trajectory modeling accuracy of both the URET and the Center TRACON Automation System (CTAS), 2 assisted in the accuracy testing of the URET Current(More)
The En Route Automation Modernization (ERAM) system is the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) automation platform used to manage air traffic at 20 en route centers in the US. This paper describes the trajectory model in the currently operational ERAM system and presents an approach to enhance ERAM's aircraft performance model with a high fidelity(More)
In today's aviation system, air traffic controllers manage the separation between aircraft primarily using radar displays to visualize the aircraft positions and their trajectories. They are aided by basic automated decision support tools that predict potential future conflicts. When controllers determine an aircraft must be maneuvered, they advise the(More)
Air traffic scenarios based on recorded live data are essential for the development, testing and evaluation of air traffic automation. It is often desirable to modify the live data to introduce additional encounters and conflicts because live data generally contains no conflicts. To this end a genetic algorithm (GA) has been developed that time shifts(More)
