    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Based on the information available in databases from relevant national and international organizations from 1967 to 2010, an Aviation Weather Accidents Database (AWAD) was built. According to the AWAD, the weather is ...
  • Hardware design of a small UAS helicopter for remote sensing operations 

    Royo Chic, Pablo; Pastor Llorens, Enric; Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Cuadrado Santolaria, Raúl; Barrao, Félix; Garcia, Antonio (MDPI AG, 2017-09-10)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper presents the hardware design and integration process employed to develop an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) helicopter. The design process evolves from the bare airframe (without any electronics), to become a ...
  • Controlled time of arrival windows for already initiated energy-neutral continuous descent operations 

    Dalmau Codina, Ramon; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2017-12-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Continuous descent operations with controlled times of arrival at one or several metering fixes could enable environmentally friendly procedures without compromising terminal airspace capacity. This paper focuses on ...
  • Assessing the impact of relaxing cruise operations with a reduction of the minimum rate of climb and/or step climb heights 

    Dalmau Codina, Ramon; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2017-11-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    A compromise solution to increase flight efficiency in cruise, but without penalising capacity (or even safety), would be perhaps to remove (or relax) the minimum rate of climb (ROC) constraint and/or to reduce the height ...
  • Differential neuronal and glial behavior on flat and micro patterned chitosan films 

    Mattotti, Marta; Álvarez Pinto, Zaída; Delgado Muñoz, Luis; Mateos Timoneda, Miguel Ángel; Aparicio, Conrado; Planell Estany, Josep Anton; Alcántara Horrillo, Soledad; Engel López, Elisabeth (2017-10-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Chitosan is a biodegradable natural polysaccharide that has been widely studied for regenerative purposes in the central nervous system. In this study we assessed the in vitro glial and neuronal cells response to chitosan ...
  • Effects of linear holding for reducing additional flight delays without extra fuel consumption 

    Xu, Yan; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2017-06)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper presents an approach to implement linear holding (LH) for flights initially subject to ground holding, in the context of Trajectory Based Operations. The aim is to neutralize additional delays raised from the ...
  • Maximizing airborne delay at no extra fuel cost by means of linear holding 

    Xu, Yan; Dalmau Codina, Ramon; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2017-08-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper introduces a linear holding strategy based on prior works on cruise speed reduction, aimed at performing airborne delay at no extra fuel cost, as a complementary strategy to current ground and airborne holding ...
  • Remotely piloted aircraft systems and a wireless sensors network for radiological accidents 

    Reyes Muñoz, María Angélica; Guerrero Ibañez, Juan Antonio; Pastor Llorens, Enric; Gasull, Marti; Barrado Muxí, Cristina (HINDAWI, 2016)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In critical radiological situations, the real time information that we could get from the disaster area becomes of great importance. However, communication systems could be affected after a radiological accident. The ...
  • Communication technologies to design vehicle-to-vehicle and vehile-to-infrastructures applications 

    Reyes Muñoz, María Angélica; Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Guerrero Ibañez, Juan Antonio (2016-10)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Intelligent Transport Systems use communication technologies to offer real-time traffic information services to road users and government managers. Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks is an important component of ITS where ...

    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    To face the challenges of the increasing air traffic demand the ICAO proposed the Performance Based Approach (PBA) as the methodology to apply for the modernization of the Air Traffic Management (ATM). Improvements for ...
  • Design of a flight management system to support four-dimensional trajectories 

    Amaro Carmona, Manuel Angel; Rudinskas, Darius; Barrado Muxí, Cristina (2015-03-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper presents the design and simulation of the functions of a flight Management System (FMS) in order to follow four-dimensional trajectories automatically. This is achieved by controlling the aircraft’s airspeed, ...
