Improving air traffic control and air traffic management is currently one of the top priorities
of the global research and development agenda. Massive, multi-billion euro programs like
SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) in Europe and NextGen (Next Generation Air
Transportation System) in the United States are on their way to create an air transportation
system that meets the demands of the future.
(BQ) The author introduced an alternative traffic flow theory called three-phase traffic theory, which can predict and explain the empirical spatiotemporal features of traffic breakdown and the resulting traffic congestion.
Legal mandates for airspace modernization, certification requirements, and minimum aircraft capability and equipment standards aim to improve the efficiency and safety of air traffic, particularly within the world's busiest airspace. Mandates drive changes in technical and operational standards, but they can also deny
An overview of the NEWSKY project (“NEtWorking the SKY”) is given. This project is co-funded by the European Commission within the 6th Framework Programme and has started in February 2007. The main goal of the NEWSKY project is to show that the integration of different communications systems and different applications into a global, heterogeneous network for aeronautical communications is feasible and how this integration can be achieved.
The main focus of congestion control and quality of service is data traffic. In congestion control we try to avoid traffic congestion. In quality of service, we try to create an appropriate environment for the traffic. So, before talking about congestion control and quality of service, we discuss the data traffic itself.
