New trends in air traffic complexity


This paper describes a novel approach for defining an air traffic complexity indicator, aimed at improving over the current operational definition that is only the number of aircraft present in a sector at a given time. The key concept in this work is that a level of disorder or equivalently unpredictability is the right indicator. Our approach is relevant for many applications in the air traffic management area, like sector design ([2]), traffic assignment ([1, 3]) and will be very well suited for predicting complex situations in a future autonomous aircraft environment. Moreover, since this modelling takes explicitly into account the trajectories of the aircraft, either observed or planned, it fits perfectly with 4D based ATM like SESAR or NextGen.
