This paper proposes a novel automated separation management concept in which onboard decision support is integrated within a centralised air traffic separation management system. The onboard decision support system involves a decentralised separation manager that can overrule air traffic management instructions under certain circumstances. This approach allows the advantages of both centralised and decentralised concepts to be combined (and disadvantages of each separation management approach to be mitigated). Simulation studies are used to illustrate the potential benefits of the combined separation management concept.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
