Stochastic models for optimal Air Traffic Flow Management

Reference number 2018-02998
Coordinator Linköpings universitet - Institutionen för Teknik och Naturvetenskap, Linköping
Funding from Vinnova SEK 500 000
Project duration September 2018 - December 2020
Status Ongoing

Purpose and goal

The purpose of the project is to develop and test new, innovative models for ATFM (Air Traffic Flow Management), i.e. high level flow planning of air traffic. In the long run, the goal is that these will contribute to an improved air traffic flow, resulting in reduced delays and reduced environmental effects. A short term goal is to develop and strengthen the research collaboration between the United Arab Emirates and Sweden.

Expected results and effects

The planned output is two scientific papers with case studies from Sweden and the Gulf area. The project is also expected build a foundation for a future continuous cooperation with increased possibilities for export of Swedish Know How and technical solutions.

Planned approach and implementation

The main work in the project will be performed by the University of Sharjah (UoS) and Université Paris-Saclay, supported by LiU and LFV. The cooperation between the involved partners is facilitated through three workshops, and by the exchange of data, models and expert knowledge. Two case studies, one for Sweden and one for the Gulf region, will be performed.
