In this paper we focus on the use of Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) to alleviate the congestion that exists today in metroplex environments and to achieve higher levels of system capacity. This capacity increase is enabled by the use of Area Navigation (RNAV) and Required Navigation Precision (RNP) procedures, which provide more predictable flight paths. Use of these procedures, especially in marginal weather conditions, would enable an ideal scenario in which all metroplex flows are de…

Feasibility of Mixed Equipage Operations in the Same Airspace

Results showed that mixed operations might be feasible in the same airspace, if unequipped aircraft count is held to a workable level, and indicate that the conflict detection and resolution automation, equipage, and traffic density are important factors that will need to be considered for airspace configuration.

Analysis of Operational Incentives for NextGen Equipage in Traffic Flow Management

In this paper we analyze alternative near-term Traffic Flow Management Operational Incentives (OPI). These OPIs are part of a larger effort to help accelerate airlines’ equipage efforts with respect
