Trajectory Calculation Based on Position and Speed for Effective Air Traffic Flow Management

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 240)


Trajectory modeling is basic work for 4D-Route modeling, conflict detection and air traffic flow management. This paper proposes a novel algorithm based on coordinate prediction for trajectory calculation. We demonstrated through simulations with flight position and ground speed, and experimental results show that our-trajectory calculation exhibits much better performance in accuracy.
