This paper describes a computational model of the air traffic management work system with current-day control techniques. The model simulates a dynamic planning process in which plans for issuing instructions to aircraft are adapted as improved information about the traffic situation becomes available. The paper presents a fast-time simulation evaluation with two air traffic controller agents controlling traffic in terminal-area arrival sectors. The results indicate that agents with dynamic planning capabilities exceed the performance of previously developed reactive agents.
