Past Meetings

When: Tuesday April, 4th at 13:00-14:00
Where: Meeting room 1
Theme: Operational and Safety Challenges of UAVs

Speaker 1: ir. Christophe De Wagter (MAVLab)
Title: Mirco Air Vehicles; the Challenges and Opportunities of Miniaturization
Presentation can be downloaded here.

Speaker 2: PhD  Borrdephong Rattanagraikanakorn
Title: Safety and risk modelling and analysis of very low level RPAS operations
In this presentation an overview of the recently started XFRIS project will be provided, which is performed in collaboration among ATO, SIC and MAVLab.

Speaker 3: MSc Busso Gellert
Title: Agent-based modelling and simulation of risk of collision between a drone and a commercial aircraft
Drones are the flavour of the time. In the USA already more UAVs have been registered than manned aircraft in the past. Most of the drones are used as toys but there is also desire to fly for professional reasons in commercial airspace . From a collision avoidance perspective this poses a new risk as current TCAS II has not been designed to operate with non-TCAS equipped aircraft. Hence, a thorough safety analysis should be carried to identify whether UAVs with a new ACAS system can safely operate in airspace with TCAS II equipped aircraft.

When: Wednesday March, 8th at 13:00-14:00
Where: Meeting room 1
Theme: Agent-based Modelling of Collaborative Decision Making in Air Transport

Speaker 1: dr. Soufiane Bouarfa
Title: Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation of Coordination by Airline Operations Control
Presentation can be downloaded here.

Speaker 2: ir. Jelmer Borst
Title: A Multi-Agent Operational Planning Model for Airport Stakeholders
Better collaboration is required to increase efficiency at airports among the many stakeholders involved in airport operational processes: ATC, airlines, de-icers, snow removal, baggage handling, etc. But how to integrate the goals and plans of each stakeholder? Here I present a multi-agent model for collaborative planning among stakeholders using principled negotiation. More specifically we’re looking at winter scenarios, where many stakeholder dependencies are at place.

When: Thursday February, 23rd at 12.45-13.30
Where: Lecture room C
Theme: EUROCONTROL

Speaker: ir. Henk Hof, head of the European ATM Master Plan Maintenance Unit of EUROCONTROL
In the talk the main focus was on two new SESAR operational concepts: the Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS) and Trajectory Based Operations (TBO). Other new ATM concepts were briefly considered too. Furthermore, the MSc thesis opportunities at EUROCONTROL were presented.

When: Tuesday December, 20th at 13:00
Where: Meeting room 2
Theme: Agent-based Airport Surface Traffic Planning

Speaker 1: MSc Jeroen Siebers
Airport Surface Traffic Planning as a Markov Decision Process
During ground movement, a lot of uncertainties are present that may be of influence on the taxi time for an aircraft. Not only in start time of the operation, but also during. Therefore, it is hard to predict whether aircraft have conflicting plans. Within my presentation, I will present a method that sets up a vector field that presents the optimal routing choice to make at each piece of taxiway present within an airport infrastructure. Values for arrival (end) time, holding and taxiing can be manipulated to influence the vector field and influence behaviour of aircraft.
