  • Pogue, L. Welch (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1979, 1979)
    International air transport, like many 20th Century marvels which are taken so much for granted today, broke out from its cocoon, so to speak, shortly after the end of World War II (WW II), took wing, and soared. Theretofore, ...
  • Lee Alex Yen Hung ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1998], 1998)
    The Passenger Origin / Destination Simulator (PODS) was used to investigate the competitive impacts of Origin-Destination control airline Revenue Management (RM) methods. Experiments performed included revenue performance ...
  • Kolb, Mark A. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1990], 1990)
    The earliest computer programs used for engineering design focused on detailed geometric design. Subsequently, computer programs for algorithmically performing the preliminary design of specific well-defined classes of ...
  • Tan, Jin C. ([Cambridge, MA : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, c1994, c1994)
    Driving the development of increasingly sophisticated methods of seat inventory control are the complex fare and route structures evident in airline operations today. Most control methods are currently based on an individual ...
  • Mangoubi, Rami (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1980], 1980)
    This research solves the flight-to-gate assignment problem at airports in such a way as to minimize, or at least reduce, walking distances for passengers inside terminals. Two solution methods are suggested. The first is ...
  • Pearlman, Chaim Herman Shalom; Simpson, R. W. ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1966], 1966)
    This report describes two detailed studies of actual maintenance costs for present transport aircraft. The first part describes maintenance costs for jet transport aircraft broken down into subsystem costs according to an ...
  • Ausrotas, Raymond A.; Hsin, Chen-Chung.; Taneja, Nawal K. (Cambridge, MA : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1974, 1974)
    Introduction: The vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft market has had substantial growth in the period of the last ten years when one considers the overall number of aircraft in use. The military fleet has continued ...
  • Sandvig, John H. (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1994], 1994)
    This thesis investigates organization and management issues associated with the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) efforts to modernize the nation's Air Traffic Management (ATM) system. Focus is placed specifically ...
  • Pararas, John Demetrios; Simpson, R. W. (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Department of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1980], 1980)
    The ATC subsystem will be designed to realistically simulate the present and future air traffic control environments in which the cabs will fly their experiments.
  • Meredith, John D'A (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1980], 1980)
    Introduction: I am very honoured to have been invited to talk to you today at such a distinguished place of learning as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I understand that you have already had talks from several ...
  • Mathaisel, Dennis F. X. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1978], )
    This report is a first step toward updating the forecasts contained in the 1973 Massachusetts State System Plan. It begins with a presentation of the forecasting techniques currently available; it surveys and appraises the ...
  • Simpson, R. W.; Neuve Eglise, Michel J. (Cambridge, Mass. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1968], 1968)
    To compete successfully in short haul markets under 200 miles, an air transport system must offer a high daily frequency of service, N, as well as short air travel times. In a given market, N can be increased by using ...
  • Keller, Keith Richard (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1986], 1986)
    A computer program is developed to govern the evasive maneuvering of a spacecraft in response to an anti-spacecraft missile threat in regions of space where drag is not significant. With a view to circumventing the need ...
  • Eriksen, Steven Edward; Scalea, John; Taneja, Nawal K. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1976], 1976)
    Introduction: Within the last ten years significant advances in the state-of-the art in air travel demand analysis stimulated researchers in the domestic air transportation field. Among these advances, researchers in ...
  • Marzke, Lee Howard ([Cambridge : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Technology Laboratory, 1984], 1984)
    A complete graphics system for use in modular avionics is built around a liquid crystal flat panel display. Screen refresh is handled by display controller that provides a bit mapped representation of the display in RAM. ...
  • Handler, Gabriel Y. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1974], 1974)
    For a given network let P and N denote the set of all points and the set of all nodes respectively. Let G and T denote a cyclic network and a tree network respectively and let m denote the number of centers available. The ...
  • Taneja, Nawal K. (Cambridge, Mass. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1971], 1971)
    Introduction: One of the key problems in the analysis and planning of any transport properties and facilities is estimating the future volume of traffic that may be expected to use these properties and facilities. Estimates ...
  • Svrcek, Tom ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1991], 1991)
    Many airlines currently use a variety of analytic techniques for seat inventory control as part of a larger revenue or "yield" management system. However, much of the this effort has emphasized decisions based on the ...
  • Malherbe, Gerard Andre (Cambridge : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, [1976], 1976)
    Disturbances affecting time control precision in four-dimension navigation are modeled. Several models of wind and turbulence from the ground to ten thousand feet are developed. A distinction is made between wind mean and ...
