Safety, complexity and responsibility based design and validation of highly automated air traffic management

Objective

Air transport throughout the world, and particularly in Europe, is characterised by major capacity, efficiency and environmental challenges. With the predicted growth in air traffic, these challenges must be overcome to improve the performance of the Air Traffic Management (ATM) system. The iFly project addresses these critical issues by developing a paradigm step change in advanced ATM concept development through a systematic exploitation of state-of-the-art mathematical techniques including stochastic modelling, analysis, optimisation and Monte Carlo simulation. In particular, iFly will develop a highly automated ATM design for en-route traffic, which takes advantage of autonomous aircraft operation capabilities and which is aimed to manage a three to six times increase in current en-route traffic levels.
