All participants are being invited to partake in the HALA research network forums on specifics issues in the white paper. The HALA white Paper is in its final stage of completion and the contributions of participants will be the final input to the document to make it official guide for the research network activities. This and other forums have been started on different issues concerning the white paper on the HALA website for this purpose.
Conventional methods for Air Traffic Management (ATM) that have worked until now cannot keep pace with the increasing necessities of the airspace. As shown in many recent works in this field, a new generation ATM is needed. More and more the concept of decision support systems (DSS) is being preferred by many players involved in the aviation sector.
A new approach to the DSS automation has to be developed. The goal of such automation is to help ATM manage greater levels of traffic safely, efficiently, autonomy, and with greater efficiency. Although each of these tools provides a valuable benefit to a unique region of airspace (e.g., terminal, en route) and type of operations (i.e., local control, local Traffic Flow Management, national Traffic Flow Management and collaborative decision making), they all share one aspect in common, trajectory modelling.
