Opportunities for Reducing Surface Emissions through Airport Surface Movement Optimization
Aircraft taxiing on the surface contribute significantly to the fuel burn and emissions at airports. This report is an overview of PARTNER’s Project 21, which tries to identify promising opportunities for surface ...
A Study of Tradeoffs in Scheduling Terminal-Area Operations
(Proceedings of the IEEE, 2008-12)
The terminal area surrounding an airport is an important component of the air transportation system, and efficient terminal-area schedules are essential for accommodating the projected increase in air traffic demand. ...
Assessment of Air Traffic Control for Urban Air Mobility and Unmanned Systems
This paper assesses how the introduction of urban air mobility services and unmanned aircraft systems may challenge Air Traffic Control (ATC) in the United States and what opportunities exist to support these forthcoming ...
Airport Characterization for the Adaptation of Surface Congestion Management Approaches
Surface congestion management has received increased attention worldwide, largely due to its potential to mitigate operational inefficiencies and environmental impact. Most prior efforts have focused on demonstrations ...
