    After hurricane Katrina, over 500 helicopter crews worked tireless to rescue victims trapped by the storm and the massive flooding which occurred after breaches in several earthen dams protecting New Orleans from surrounding waters. These crews worked without the benefit of air traffic control (ATC) de-confliction, needed communications, command & control and no protocol for mission planning a... View full abstract»

    Modeling and testing Air Traffic Control (ATC) surveillance systems rely heavily on stimulus data. Currently, stimulus data sets are generated either from recoded sensor measurements or artificially generated scenarios. Both may contain hidden errors, contributing to the total error of the system. These hidden errors appear as jumpy, non-continuous positions, velocities, or accelerations. It is im... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present the results of a preliminary study which used SD to model the control of a single stream of aircraft. The initial model only considered longitudinal motion (no lateral or vertical flight path variations). Furthermore, the only controlled variable was aircraft speed. The goal of the study was to determine the effects on throughput and safety metrics through the variation o... View full abstract»

    Small and medium sized airports are normally occupied only a short time a day typically handling less than 10 flights per day. Remote tower allows to save costs by using air traffic controllers from a bigger airport tower or to have one remote tower for a couple of small and medium sized airports. Moving the tower operation of course means that all means of communication, sensor information but al... View full abstract»

    One of the main values of utilizing automatic dependent surveillance - broadcast (ADS-B) data for air traffic control is that it provides greatly improved coverage as well as improved accuracy. As with all technology advances and deployments, especially in the National Airspace System (NAS) domain, there is a long transition time when the old and new systems must work together. The goal of the vir... View full abstract»

    Despite the fact that geospatial data is available in existing aviation databases, it is a key factor not being used in retrieving information, causing inability to make time-critical decisions. Searching NOTAM data based on a geographic area is a missing component in today's widely used NOTAM Web services. Geospatially enabled NOTAM Web service was implemented providing a solution for location-ba... View full abstract»

    Low visibility is a major limiting factor on aircraft operations. Although there are several definitions of low visibility, in this paper it is defined as values less than a runway visual range (RVR) of 2400 feet. These conditions only occur a small percentage of the time, but they can have a major impact on the National Airspace System (NAS). The impact of reduced arrival rates as a result of low...

    The FAA and the other air domain security partners are employing multilayered security techniques to attempt to deter and prevent attacks such as a hijack from happening in the future. However, there exists the possibility that the security measures employed can be circumvented or defeated, and that terrorists can take unauthorized control of an aircraft while in flight. If such a situation occurs... View full abstract»
