Trajectory Management Under Operational Constraints Caused by Significant Weather Conditions
To ensure cooperative trajectory management prior to the departure of aircraft, all stakeholders must make decisions under high-level common understandings of the aviation
weather, aircraft operation, and air traffic management.Therefore, research and development on the selection of a preferred flight route is expected and suitable flow control and capacity settings must be conducted with knowledge of an advanced weather forecast.
This study aims to enhance flight operations, air traffic flow management, and airspace capacity management by visualizing and quantifying the effects of significant weather conditions on these operations, ultimately enhancing the cooperative decision-making prior to the departure of aircraft. In particular, significant weather avoidance is modeled and airspace capacity reduction is derived under significant weather conditions. Furthermore, a system for visualizing and displaying significant weather conditions, aircraft trajectories, and airspace capacity is developed.
