Modeling of wind and radar for simulation in four-dimensional navigation environment
(Cambridge : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, , 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 ...
Estimates of capacity and delay for proposed runway systems : Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam, final report
(Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, , 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 ...
Ground controlled precision landing delivery in the presence of radar disturbances
(Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, , 1977)
Introduction: The purpose of Air Traffic Control is to ensure separation of aircraft in the most efficient manner possible. The need for efficiency is becoming more important as air traffic continues to increase at a high ...
