HALA¡ Research Network (Towards higher levels of automation in the future ATM System) addresses the challenges that impose automation to the whole aviation system. HALA! Is looking into future scenarios of the ATM and air transport system. For that purpose it organised a workshop on “reduced-crew operations” within the WATM congress 2015. HALA’s aimed to examine and discuss the idea of operations with reduced crew taking into account its technical, social and legal aspects

HALA! research Network will assist the University of Lancaster and the University of Stirling (UK) in the development of the project “Mathematical Models and Algorithms for Allocating Scarce Airport Resources” which’s objective is to address UK’s airport congestions by building and testing new mathematical models and algorithms which take into account all parameters and stakeholders involved in the allocation of airport slots and scheduling of flights.
