This paper describes the functionality of the Departure Enhanced Planning And Runway/Taxiway-Assignment System (DEPARTS), and how this functionality could potentially help reduce taxi-out times at Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport (ATL). DEPARTS generates optimized recommendations on runway assignment, departure sequencing and departure fix loading for the air traffic control tower to reduce taxi-out times. DEPARTS has initially been developed as a concept exploration laboratory… CONTINUE READING
