An Agent-Based Approach for the Design of the Future European Air Traffic Management System

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8473)


This paper describes an agent-based approach for the simulation of air traffic management (ATM) in Europe that was designed to help analyze proposals for future ATM systems. This approach is able to represent new collaborative decision processes for flow traffic management, it uses an intermediate level of abstraction (useful for simulations at larger scales), and was designed to be a practical tool (open and reusable) for the development of different ATM studies. It was successfully applied in three studies related to the design of future ATM systems in Europe.
