Talk / Overview
Publicly available aircraft airborne and ground movement data open perspectives to produce new advanced analyses of complex behaviours and collaborative decision making tools for the optimisation of airport operations. Such data-driven approaches will allow cost efficient implementations, which are a key enabler for the efficient integration of small/medium sized airports into the air transportation network. Since aircraft have to be equipped with a compliant transponder from 2020, airports only need cheap receivers to observe operations at the runway/taxiway system and at the apron (including parking positions). These observations will allow for a systematic monitoring (using operational milestones) and predictive analytics to provide estimated values for future system states.
