    1 Abstract In this paper an initial implementation of a real - time aircraft trajectory optimization algorithm is presented . The aircraft trajectory for descent and approach is computed for ...
  • Enhancement of a time and energy management algorithm for continuous descent operations 

    Prats Menéndez, Xavier; Pérez Batlle, Marcos; Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Vilardaga García-Gascon, Santi; Bas, Isidro; Birling, Florent; Verhoeven, Ronald; Marsman, Adri (2014)
    Conference report

    In an effort to improve the effciency of air traffic operations, whilst reducing the envi- ronmental impact on aviation and increase capacity, 4D trajectory optimisation has shown good potential. In previous research the ...
  • Real-time simulations to evaluate the RPAS integration in shared airspace 

    Pastor Llorens, Enric; Pérez Batlle, Marcos; Royo Chic, Pablo; Cuadrado Santolaria, Raúl; Barrado Muxí, Cristina (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents the work done during the first year in the WP-E project ERAINT (Evaluation of the RPAS-ATM Interaction in Non-Segregated Airspace) that intends to evaluate by means of human-in-the-loop real-time ...
  • Conflict free trajectory optimisation for complex departure procedures 

    Vilardaga García-Cascón, Santi; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
  • How much fuel and time can be saved in a perfect flight trajectory? Continuous cruise climbs vs. conventional operations 

    Dalmau Codina, Ramon; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Continuous climb, cruise and decent operations (referred as continuous operations) may contribute to significantly reduce fuel and emissions. Nevertheless, it is obvious that the introduction of such procedures at large ...
  • Agent-based simulation framework for airport collaborative decision making 

    García Vasco, Ivan; Valero García, Miguel; Prats Menéndez, Xavier; Delgado, Luis (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Airport C ollaborative Decision Making (A - CDM) is based on information sharing. A better use of resources can be attained w hen the different stakeholders at airport operations share their more accurate and ...
  • ISIS+: A realistic ATM-UAS simulation environment 

    Pastor Llorens, Enric; Royo Chic, Pablo; Cuadrado Santolaria, Raúl; Batlle, M.P; Barrado Muxí, Cristina (2013)
    Conference report

    Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are currently being used primarily for military applications, but with the evolution of avionics technology, a huge market in civil applications is emerging. However, most civil applications ...
  • Jellyfish monitoring on coastlines using remote pilotes aircraft 

    Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Fuentes, Javier A.; Salamí San Juan, Esther; Royo Chic, Pablo; Olariaga, Alejandro D.; López Rubio, Juan; Fuentes, Verónica L.; Gili, Jose Maria; Pastor Llorens, Enric (IOPScience, 2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the last 10 years the number of jellyfish shoals that reach the swimming area of the Mediterranean Sea are increasing constantly. The term “Jellyfish” refers to animals from different taxonomic groups but the Scyphomedusae ...
  • Effects in fuel consumption of assigning RTAs into 4D trajectory optimisation upon departures 

    Vilardaga García-Cascón, Santi; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    4D trajectory optimisation has showed good potential to reduce environmental impact in aviation. However, a recurrent problematic is the loss in air traffic capacity that these pose, usually overcome with speed and ...
