Network-wide Robust Climate Optimal Aircraft Trajectory Planning
Manuel Fernando Soler Arnedo (UC3M)
Aviation is contributing to global warming through the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) and non-CO2 effects. The latter directly depends on the meteorological condition, thus can be mitigated using climate-aware aircraft trajectory planning. However, determining aircraft trajectories independently is not practical for real traffic scenarios due to the associated interactions and impact at the network scale.
During my Ph.D., the aim is to develop network-wide strategic deconfliction algorithms that consider probabilistic climatic hotspots to assess complexity and capacity reductions and find climatic-resilient solutions in computational times that are compatible with operations.
