  • Vigeant-Langlois, Laurence N.; Hansman, R. John (International Center for Air Transportation, 2000-02)
    In order to support the development of remote sensing technologies, the requirements of cockpit information systems for flight operations in icing conditions were investigated. Pilot information needs were investigated ...
  • Pina, Patricia; Hansman, R. John (2007-09)
    The air traffic management system is currently experiencing a significant transformation to provide better quality service and to match the increasing air traffic demand. This transformation requires airlines to retrofit ...
  • Lohrenz, Maura (MIT International Center for Air Transportation, 2003-06)
    A critical issue in military aviation is the pilot’s ability to transition between primarily internal (head-down, instrument-driven) and external (head-up, out of the cockpit) guidance. Experimental cockpit displays were ...
  • Anagnostakis, Ioannis; Idris, Husni R.; Clarke, John-Paul; Feron, Eric; Hansman, R. John; Odoni, Amedeo R.; Hall, William D. (2000-06)
    Terminal area Air Traffic Management handles both arriving and departing traffic. To date, research work on terminal area operations has focused primarily on the arrival flow and typically departures are taken into account ...
  • Reynolds, Tom G.; Hansman, R. John (2002-10)
    Conformance monitoring is a core task in Air Traffic Control (ATC) operations to determine whether aircraft are adhering to assigned trajectories. This is important for many reasons, including to ensure that tactical ...
  • Mozdzanowska, Aleksandra; Hansman, R. John (2007-07)
    Historically, aircraft accidents have preceded the implementation of many changes in the US Air Transportation System. These accidents act as catalytic events which generate awareness of a problem and pressure for change ...
  • Shetty, Kamala (2012-08-28)
    General aviation (GA) is an important component of aviation in the United States. In 2011, general aviation and air taxi operations represented 63% of all towered opera- tions in the United States, while commercial ...
  • Hansman, R. John; Mykityshyn, Mark (2012-03-23)
    The 1985 FAA Human Factors Research Plan identified chart design as one of the cockpit-related human performance problem areas which should be addressed through human factors research. Instrument Approach Charts, also ...
  • Simaiakis, Ioannis; Balakrishnan, Hasmsa; Khadilkar, Harshad; Reynolds, Tom G.; Hansman, R. John; Reilly, B.; Urlass, S. (2011-02-02)
    Airport surface congestion results in significant increases in taxi times, fuel burn and emissions at major airports. This paper presents the field tests of a control strategy to airport congestion control at Boston Logan ...
  • Feron, Eric R.; Hansman, R. John; Odoni, Amadeo R.; Cots, R.B.; Delcaire, B.; Hall, W.D.; Idris, H.R.; Muharremoglu, A.; Pujet, N. (1997-12)
  • Simaiakis, Ioannis; Balakrishnan, Hasmsa (2011-02-02)
    We propose a new parametric representation of the departure capacity of airports. In particular, we show how the departure capacity can be represented by the variation of the average departure throughput as a function of ...
  • Tao, Tony S.; Hansman, R. John (2012-06-11)
    A micro-UAV system was developed to provide maximum endurance for a small atmospheric sensing payload. The system, composed of a micro-UAV and protective case, folds and fits into a MJU-10/B flare cartridge (7.1” x 2.4” ...
  • Doble, Nathan; Hansman, R. John (MIT International Center for Air Transportation, 2003-06)
    There has been growing interest in using electronic alternatives to the paper Flight Progress Strip (FPS) for air traffic control. However, most research has been centered on radar-based control environments, and has not ...
  • Clarke, John-Paul; Ho, Nhut; Ren, Lilling; Brown, John; Elmer, Kevin; Tong, Kwok-On; Wat, Joseph (2004-04)
    A design methodology based on the principles of system analysis was used to design a noise abatement approach procedure for Louisville International Airport. In a flight demonstration test, this procedure was shown to ...
  • Vakil, Sanjay S.; Midkiff, Alan H.; Hansman, R. John (International Center for Air Transportation, 1996-06)
    Current advanced commercial transport aircraft, such as the Boeing B777/B747-400, the Airbus A320/A340 and the McDonnell Douglas MD-11, rely on AutoFlight Systems (AFS) for flight management, navigation and inner loop ...
  • Kunzi, Fabrice; Hansman, R. John (2013-11-07)
    The introduction of Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) as the future source of aircraft surveillance worldwide provides an opportunity to introduce high-precision airborne conflict alerting systems for ...
  • Siegel, Diana; Hansman, R. John (2011-10-27)
    Accidents due to engine failure, pilot disorientation or pilot incapacitation occur far more frequently in general aviation than in commercial aviation, yet general aviation aircraft are equipped with less safety-enhancing ...
  • Prechtl, Eric Frederick (International Center for Air Transportation, 1994-04-24)
    An actuator using a piezoelectric bender to de ect a trailing edge servo- ap for use on a helicopter rotor blade was designed, built, and tested. This actuator is an improvement over one developed previously at MIT. ...
  • Mozdzanowska, Aleksandra; Weibel, Roland; Lester, Edward; Hansman, R. John (2007-07)
    Both U.S. and European Air Transportation Systems face substantial challenges in transforming to meet future demand. This paper uses a feedback model to identify and describe key issues in the dynamics of system ...
