    Context The U-space concept was the response of the Warsaw Declaration in 2016, which sought to harness the potential of drones for creating jobs and new business opportunities. The U-space Blueprint, published by the SESAR Joint Undertaking in 2017, defines U-space as “a set of new services and specific procedures designed to support safe, efficient […]



    The project In recent years, the question of how to assess the performance impact of new solutions at a system-wide level in terms of air traffic management (ATM) has arisen. The EU-funded NOSTROMO project aimed to develop new approaches to ATM performance modelling, combining model transparency, computational tractability, and ease of use. First, the project […]

    Context A complete understanding of the behaviour of passengers, as final users of the air transport system, is a key aspect for airport planning and management. Airports must be able to adapt to the constantly changing market demand in order to acquire a better understanding of passenger behaviour and adapt their strategies accordingly. The traditional […]



    The SIMBAD project The development of performance modelling methodologies able to translate new ATM concepts and technologies into their impact on high-level, system-wide KPIs has been a long-time objective of the ATM research community. Bottom-up, microsimulation models are often the only feasible approach to address this problem in a reliable manner. However, the practical application […]



    The project AICHAIN a is a research project funded under SESAR 2020 Exploratory Research. The project proposed an innovative Digital Information Management (DIM) concept — the AICHAIN solution — that aimed at enabling the cyber-secured exploitation of large private data sets belonging to different stakeholders and containing valuable information for ATM operations. To overcome the stakeholders’ […]

    The project BigData4ATM is a research project within SESAR 2020 Exploratory Research. Its aim was to investigate how new sources of passenger-centric data from smart personal devices can be analysed to extract relevant information about passengers’ behaviour. The goal was to understand how this information can be utilised to inform decision-making processes in air traffic […]



    The project BEACON is a research project, funded under SESAR 2020 Exploratory Research, seeking to design new procedures for Airspace Users (AUs) to better allocate their resources (aircraft, pilots, crew, and others) in case of disruptions, and evaluate the proposed procedures through new methods and tools able to take into account AUs’ complex behaviours, such […]



    ACCESS was a project within SESAR JU WPE Long Term and Innovative Research which addressed airport slot allocation from the perspective of complex adaptive systems. The project developed an agent-based model of the air transport network that was used to evaluate different designs of market-based mechanisms for airport slot allocation. Context The European regulation for […]



    Context Performance orientation in Air Traffic Management (ATM) is one of the cornerstones of the Single European Sky (SES) and of its technological pillar, SESAR. A performance-based approach is defined by ICAO as one based on defining policy in terms of qualitative performance objectives, making them measurable by defining appropriate indicators, developing the data and […]



    The project TRANSIT is a research project funded under SESAR 2020 Exploratory Research. TRANSIT’s vision is that of a multimodal European transport system where the different modes are seamlessly integrated, so that passengers travel from door to door in an efficient, sustainable and resilient manner. Realising this vision requires coordinated planning and collaborative decision-making across […]
