  • Pararas, John Demetrios (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1982], 1982)
    This work studies the automation of the terminal area Air Traffic Management and Control (ATM/C) system. The ATM/C decision-making process is analyzed and broken down into a number of "automation functions". Each of these ...
  • Simpson, R. W. (Fort Monmouth, NJ : U.S. Army Avionics Research and Development Command ; [1980], 1980)
    This study reviews the requirements for a modern, high performance all weather Air Traffic Management and Control System designed for U.S. Army airfields. A strawman ATM/C system is created to illustrate problems, and to ...
  • Eriksen, Steven Edward; Eriksen, Steven Edward. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1978, 1978)
    The airline industry in recent years has suffered from the adverse effects of top level planning decisions based upon inaccurate demand forecasts. The air carriers have recognized the immediate need to develop their ...
  • Maurer, R. S. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1981], 1981)
  • Elias, Antonio L. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1979], 1979)
    Introduction: The use of computer simulations to analyze large complex systems is now a well-established technique. By combining detailed numerical models of each component of the system, the behavior of the entire system ...

  • Widnall, S. E.; Bauer Paul E. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1972], 1972)
    An open-jet wind tunnel operating within an anechoic chamber was developed for the purpose of the study of V/STOL noise mechanisms. An existing low-speed conventional hard-walled wind tunnel was modified to operate as an ...
  • Clarke, Michael D. D. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1998], 1998)
    Airlines are constantly faced with operational problems which develop from severe weather patterns and unexpected aircraft or personnel failures. However, very little research has been done on the problem of addressing the ...
  • Fedida, Fabien (Cambridge, MA : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1994], 1994)
    Both the airline industry and air travelers have been pummeled by increased delays experienced at major airports and, as a result, rising operating costs. In this thesis, we focus on the dynamic Arrival Flow Management ...
  • Psaraftis, Harilaos Nicholas; Psaraftis, Harilaos Nicholas. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1978], 1978)
    In this report, a number of Dynamic Programming algorithms for three versions of the Aircraft Sequencing problem are developed. In these, two alternative objectives are considered: How to land all of a prescribed set of ...
  • Akel, Ollie James ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1967, 1967)
    Introduction: Although air transportation has been characterized by rapid development in vehicle design and performance, methods of airline management in the area of vehicle scheduling and control have advanced at a much ...
  • Dear, Roger George (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1976], 1976)
    Aircraft arrive in a random fashion into a terminal area seeking to land at a given runway. The aircraft are differentiated by their landing velocities. All aircraft are required to maintain a prespecified minimum horizontal ...
  • Odier, Edouard Christian (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1976], 1976)
    This report examines the problem of determining runway fees at major commercial airports when the objective is the maximization of social benefits. Unlike most of the analytical work that has been performed to date, the ...
  • Lim, Liang Poh (Cambridge : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1980], 1980)
    Using actual data gathered from field surveys and an extensive literature survey, this work examines and evaluates the economic and financial performance of the U.S. airports. A detailed analysis of the economics of airport ...
  • Eriksen, Steven Edward; Liu, Elliott Wu-Hsun. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory ; [1979], 1979)
    Introduction: One of the axioms in the air transportation industry is that advances in technology have led to a greater amount of passenger travel by air. Improvements in airframe and engine design have increased range, ...
  • Higginbottom, Samuel L.; Burgess, E. H. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1980], 1980)
    Introduction: THE U.S. AIRLINE INDUSTRY HAS BEEN EXPOSED TO A PERIOD OF MAJOR SURGERY DURING THE PAST THREE YEARS AND HAS SURVIVED. VIEWED FROM THE STANDPOINT OF THE CAB, IT WAS NATURAL THAT THE GREAT IMPROVEMENT IN ...
  • Odoni, Amedeo R.; Simpson, R. W. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1976], 1976)
    1. The addition of the fifth runway at Schiphol increases the airport hourly capacity for landings by almost 100%, and the capacity for takeoffs by more than 40%. 2. The current runway system will provide good levels of ...
  • Fortune, Stephen James (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1981], 1981)
    In the past decade many major U.S. airports have encountered extensive opposition to plans for future growth and expansion from environmentalists and community groups who cite the noise and air pollution created and the ...
  • Wickham, Richard Robert ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1995], 1995)
    Forecasting is arguably the most critical component of airline management. Essentially, airlines forecast demand to plan the supply of services to respond to that demand. Forecasts of short-term demand facilitate tactical ...
  • Kirby, Mark Samuel; Hansman, Robert John (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1986], 1986)
    Real-time measurements of ice growth during artificial and natural icing conditions were conducted using an ultrasonic pulse-echo technique. This technique allows ice thickness to be measured with an accuracy of ł0.5 mm; ...
