The HALA! SESAR Research Network cordially invites you to the fifth HALA! Summer School on the theme “FUTURE AIR TRAFFIC SYSTEMS BASED ON 4D TRAJECTORY MANAGEMENT” at La Granja de San Ildefonso in Madrid (Spain) between the 13th and 16th July 2015.

The summer course aims, by combining theory sessions with practical ones, to understand what it is 4D trajectory planning and to analyse the reasons behind the paradigm shift on air traffic management: from a traditional management based on the division of airspace towards an airspace management based on trajectories. Moreover, the course wishes to determine the costs and benefits of 4D trajectory, to identify the challenges of 4D trajectory management, to define variables and agents involved in planning of trajectories and finally to frame the 4D trajectory management within the SESAR concept . The course will combine theoretical sessions with practical sessions of group work and simulation exercises.

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.

"Identifying open issues for reduced-crew operation in the cockpit of large civil aircrafts and implications for the future ATM system”

As part of the World ATM Congress (to be held from March 10th-12th 2015 at Madrid, Spain), HALA! will hold a workshop on " Identifying open issues for reduced-crew operation in the cockpit of large civil aircrafts and implications for the future ATM system ".
