Complex decision-making of the agents in Domino: 4DTA

AUTHOR: Damir Valput What do we talk about when we talk about 4DTA? The concept of the 4D trajectory considers time to be the fourth dimension of trajectory, integrated with the three spatial dimensions. Therefore, 4D trajectory adjustment (4DTA) allows for not only the adjustments of the aircraft...

New network metrics for complex interactions!

Author: Silvia Zaoli Air traffic can naturally be described as a networked system, where nodes are the different elements of the airspace, e.g. airports, airlines, or arrival and departure managers, and the links between those nodes describe the interaction between them. Network metrics...
