Flight demonstration of integrated airport surface automation concepts
free download

ABSTRACT A flight demonstration was conducted to address airport surface movement area capacity issues by providing pilots with enhanced situational awareness information. The demonstration showed an integration of several technologies to government and industry 

Airport surface operation collaborative automation concept
free download

ABSTRACT Limitation in airport runway throughput naturally constrains traffic capacity. For this reason, the increasing demand on capacity ultimately will require airport expansion to increase the number of runways and associated taxiways. Often the airport expansion 

Surface operation automation research for airport tower and flight deck automation
free download

ABSTRACT Air traffic growth has resulted in serious peak-traffic flight delays in our National Airspace System, and congestion at key airports has been recognized as one of the key factors contributing to the problem. Airport expansion plans designed to increase the 

Benefits analysis of terminal-area air traffic automation at the Dallas/Fort Worth InternationalAirport
free download

Advanced air traffic management systems such as the Center/TRACON Automation System (CTAS) should yield a wide range of benefits, including reduced aircraft delays and controller workload. To estimate the traffic-flow benefits achievable from future terminal airspace 

Evaluation plan for an airport surface-operation automation concept

Runway incursions and airport surface traffic automation
free download

ABSTRACT Runway incursions occur when aircraft or vehicles get onto a runway and conflict with aircraft cleared to land or take off on that same runway. All are caused by human error. The Federal Aviation Administration has identified reducing these human errors as a 

Real-time control tower simulation for evaluation of airport surface traffic automation
free download

High fidelity, real-time aircraft simulation has been a valuable tool for the human factors evaluation of flight deck automation, but no equivalent simulation has been available for the Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) environment. The capacity, flexibility, and data collection 

The Past, Present, and Future of Small Airport Automation
