The dynamic scheduling of aircraft in the near terminal area
(Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, , 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 ...
A Dynamic Programming approach to the Aircraft Sequencing problem
(Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, , 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 ...
Concept development and evaluation of airborne traffic displays
(Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory , 1971)
A system concept for a cockpit traffic situation display (TSD) was developed and a preliminary evaluation was undertaken to investigate the effect of a TSD on safety, efficiency, and capacity in the 3rd generation NAS/ARTS ...
Review and evaluation of national airspace system models
(Cambridge, MA : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology ; 1979, 1979)
Abstract from Technical Report Documentation Page: This report is intended to serve as a guide to the availability and capability of state-of-the-art analytical and simulation models of the National Airspace System (NAS). ...
General aviation Omega navigation in the national airspace system
(Cambridge, Mass. : Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1976, 1976)
Introduction: Omega navigation has great potential as a navigation sensor for general aviation aircraft. Advantages of Omega navigation include signal availability at all altitudes, and no need for overflying of various ...
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 ...
