Separation management approaches during periods of communication failure
Fan, Jiezhen S., Ford, Jason J., & Gonzalez, Luis F. (2010) Separation management approaches during periods of communication failure. In The International Council of the Aeronautical Sciences 2010, 19-24 September 2010, Nice.
New air traffic automated separation management concepts are constantly under investigation. Yet most of the automated separation management algorithms proposed over the last few decades have assumed either perfect communication or exact knowledge of all aircraft locations. In realistic environments, these idealized assumptions are not valid and any communication failure can potentially lead to disastrous outcomes. This paper examines the separation performance behavior of several popular algorithms during periods of information loss. This comparison is done through simulation studies. These simulation studies suggest that communication failure can cause the performance of these separation management algorithms to degrade significantly. This paper also describes some preliminary flight tests.
