Advanced Airspace Modeling, Characterization, and Planning
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
"The ultimate goal of this effort is to develop a versatile software system for efficient management of special use airspace (SUA). As a policy, FAA wants the Department of Defense to promote as much as possible joint use of SUA by military and civilianaircraft and the use of inactivated SUA by civilian aircraft while meeting its airspace requirements.Incorporating the individual merits of the existing airspace management systems, we propose to develop a versatile software tool that consists of (i) a powerful decision support system (DSS), and (ii) intelligent graphic display of established schedulesand real-time information on SUA status and the current activities in SUA. (iii) realistic and reliable models for aircraft density estimation and flight path prediction and (iv) prediction methods for predicting future airspace requirements.The principal benefits from this project are:¿ Determination of optimal scheduling decisions in real time¿ Prediction of the durations in which SUA can be released to FAA for joint use¿ Intelligent graphic display of information¿ Effective interaction with the system for real-time decision-making¿ Efficient real-time solutions based on dynamic aircraft density and flight path predictions¿ Analysis of SUA utilization, and future SUA requirements prediction. The proposed airspace management system can be used by a majority of about 900 SUA located all over the country."
