Pilot3 Optimisation Architecture

Author: Jovana Kuljanin (UPC) Pilot3 could be triggered at some point of the departure procedure or when the aircraft is already en-route. The system will optimise the aircraft trajectory from the current aircraft state (i.e., the moment Pilot3 is triggered) down to reaching FL100 at the proximity...

Estimating operational uncertainty in Pilot3

Author: Clara Argerich (Innaxis) Operational estimators that shed light on arrivals Pilot3 software is a tool that optimizes trajectories based on factors that affect flight performance—everything from possible network disruptions, to bad weather and so on. For the purposes of this post, we will...

Identification of data needs for Dispatcher3

Author: Damir Valput (Innaxis) The main objective of Dispatcher3 is to leverage historical data and machine learning techniques to support flight management activities prior to departure, as described in our first blog post. The airline dispatchers assist in flight planning of individual operations...

Definition of Scenarios in the light of Agile methodology

AUTHOR: Jovana Kuljanin (UPC) Pilot3 will be developed following some of the principles of the Agile paradigm. The methodology relies on the idea that different prototype versions are incrementally developed by adding new functionalities into each version, until we reach the fully functional prototype....

Dispatcher3: Data at the core of flight dispatching

Author: Luis Delgado (UoW) An experienced dispatcher will have a good understanding on the differences between planned and executed flight plans. These differences will be driven by uncertainty factors such as, which runway is the one that will be used at arrival, what is the actual weather that...

Optimisation objectives in Pilot3

AUTHOR: Luis Delgado Airlines’ objectives for the operations of their flights, as defined in their flight policies, are translated into operational Cost Indexes (CIs). The Cost Index represents the ratio between cost of time and cost of fuel, hence a CI of zero in the Flight Management System...
