Adverse weather accounts for the bulk of the aviation delays at the major New York City airports. In this report, we quantify: 1. Aviation delay reduction with an Integrated Terminal Weather System (ITWS) that incorporates the 30-60 minute predictions of convective storms generated by the Terminal Convective Weather Forecast (TCWF) algorithm, 2. Principal(More)
This paper presents a detailed study of a convective weather event affecting the northeastern United States on 19 April 2002: its impacts on departure throughput, the response of traffic managers and an analysis of the potential effects of decision support on system performance. We compare actual departure throughput to what may have been achieved using the(More)
A primary objective of the FAA's ATM functions is to provide fair and equitable access to the National Airspace System. Traditionally, the FAA has interpreted fairness as prioritizing flights on a " first-come, first-served " basis. The allocation procedures introduced under Collaborative Decision Making (CDM), however, represent a departure from this(More)
P. vivax CSP gene of 18 isolates from infected blood of patients living in China, Philippines, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea in West Pacific region has been sequenced from both terminal end. The total readable sequence in most isolates was about 725 base pair (bp), including the first two repeat units (70-330 bp) to the N terminus, and the last two(More)
Advanced separation assurance concepts involving higher degrees of automation must meet the challenge of maintaining safety in the presence of inevitable subsystem faults, including the complete failure of the supporting automation infrastructure. This paper examines the types of design features and safeguards that might be used to preserve safety in a(More)
Reducing congested airspace delays due to thunderstorms has become a major objective of the FAA due to the recent growth in convective delays. In 2000 and 2001 the key new initiative for reducing these convective weather delays was " strategic " traffic flow management (TFM) at time scales between 2 and 6 hours in advance using collaborative weather(More)
