  • Hammarskjl̲d, Knut (Cambridge. Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1980], 1980)
    "(Ladies &) Gentlemen, I am grateful for this opportunity to talk to you about the developing scene in the civil air transport industry. And to take a look at the evolving role of IATA - the International Air Transport ...
  • Belobaba, Peter (Cambridge, MA : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1987], 1987)
    Many airlines practice differential pricing of fare products that share a common inventory of available seats on an aircraft. Seat inventory management is the process of limiting the number of seats made available to each ...
  • Duchesne de Lamotte, Herve (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1985, 1985)
    A.I.S.E. (Advanced Interactive Scheduling Environment) is an interactive computer system designed to schedule efficiently a fleet of vehicles accordingly to a set of requests made in advance or at the last minute. The ...
  • Lee, Boon Chai (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1982], 1982)
    A review of methods of enumerating elementary cycles and circuits is presented. For the directed planar graph, a geometric view of circuit generation is introduced making use of the properties of dual graphs. Given the set ...
  • Alhanatis, Robert Elias (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, c1994, c1994)
    The purpose of this thesis is to examine the nature of aircraft surface motion on the airport surface during normal operations. Twelve hours of radar data, gathered by MIT Lincoln Laboratories from Logan airport in Boston, ...
  • Sturdy, James Luckett; Hansman, Robert John. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1988], 1988)
    The dynamic response of aircraft-autopilot systems to atmospheric disturbances was investigated by analyzing linearized models of aircraft dynamics and altitude hold autopilots. Four jet aircraft (Boeing 737-100, McDonald ...
  • Gallant, Robert A.; Scully, M.; Lange, William Richard. ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1966], 1966)
    Introduction: The potential of air transportation as a means of filling the growing need for a mass short haul transportation system was investigated in Ref. 1 where all aspects of short haul air transportation systems ...
  • Hsin, Chen-Chung (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1976], 1976)
    This dissertation gives a comprehensive study of the theory and practice of the advanced terminal area air traffic management and control. The entire terminal area ATM/C system has been formulated as a feedback control ...
  • Mathaisel, Dennis F. X.; Taneja, Nawal K. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1977], 1977)
    Introduction and objectives: For some time now regression models, often calibrated using the ordinary least-squares (OLS) estimation procedure, have become common tools for forecasting the demand for air transportation. ...
  • Gallant, Robert Alfred ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1966, 1966)
    The method of steepest descent of the calculus of variations is used to determine the optimal flight profile of a hypothetical tilt wing aircraft travelling a distance of 50 miles. Direct operating cost, (as derived from ...
  • Nasr, Asad (Cambridge Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1978], 1978)
    The demand for air transport is affected by the usual extraneous factors, demographic, social and economic, as well as those falling properly within the sphere of the industry itself such as the quality of service, safety, ...
  • Gray, Robert Reed (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1980], 1980)
    "Multiple entry is now the norm for U.S. international air transportation, except in cases in which the bilateral aviation relations between the United States and the foreign country concerned call for a different approach. ...
  • Gray, Robert Reed (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1981], 1981)
  • Vittek, Joseph F. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1974, 1974)
    Summary: This document is a draft report of the Workshops' output - The Working Group Reports. It is for your review and comment which should be returned to me by January 1, 1975. With those comments and criticisms in hand, ...
  • Clarke, Michael D. D. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1994], 1994)
    The high level of intercity passenger travel in the Northeast Corridor is supported by densely populated metropolitan city-centers, the suitable distance between the urban areas, and the extent to which economic and social ...
  • Elias, Antonio L.; Pararas, John Demetrios. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1986], 1986)
    Introduction: A large number of ideas and schemes have been proposed and are constantly being suggested to enhance the Air Traffic Control system's safety, reliability, and efficiency by means of automation. The capability ...
  • Trikas, Thanassis (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1987, 1987)
    Over the past few years, the technology and performance of Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) systems has been improving steadily. This has resulted in their successful use in a number of industrial applications. Motivated ...
  • Simpson, R. W.; Mathaisel, Dennis F. X. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1984], 1984)
    This report describes a conceptual design for automation of the scheduling of airlift activities as part of the current upgrade of the MAC C2 System. It defines the airlift scheduling problem in generic terms before reviewing ...
  • Ausrotas, Raymond A.; Hansman, Robert John. (Cambridge, Mass : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1984], 1984)
