We explore the use of distributed online motion planning algorithms for multiple mobile agents, in air traffic management systems (ATMS). The work is motivated by current trends in ATMS to move towards decentralized air traffic management, in which the aircraft operate in “free flight” mode instead of following prespecified “sky freeways”. Conflict resolution strategies are an integral part of the free flight setting. The purpose of this paper is to obtain a set of manoeuvres to cover all possible conflict scenarios involving multiple agents. A distributed motion planning algorithm based on potential and vortex fields is used. While the algorithm is not always guaranteed to generate flyable trajectories, the obtained trajectories can serve as qualitative prototypes for coordination manoeuvres between multiple aircraft. The actual manoeuvres are generated by approximating these prototypes with trajectories made zip of straight lines and are further verified using hybrid verification techniques
