Due to high demand and adverse weather conditions, aircraft often spend excessive time taxiing and waiting for takeoff during congested time periods at major airports. The excessive taxi time causes considerable costs in terms of fuel burn and surface emissions. The next generation air transportation system proposes to optimize airport surface operations in(More)
Airports and their terminal airspaces are key choke points in the air transportation system, where most delays are generated. Solutions to mitigate these choke points have consisted mostly of isolated concepts and capabilities that are applied to components of the system. Integrated solutions are needed in order to reap the benefits of the isolated(More)
Airports and their terminal airspaces are key choke points in the air transportation system causing major delays and adding to pollution. A solution aimed at mitigating these chokepoints integrates the scheduling of runway operations, flight release from the gates and ramp into the airport movement area, and merging with other traffic competing for(More)
