Ground-based prediction of aircraft climb : point-mass model vs regression methods

Abstract : Predicting aircraft trajectories with great accuracy is central to most operational concepts ([1], [2]) and automated tools that are expected to improve the air traffic management (ATM) in the near future. On-board flight management systems predict the aircraft trajectory using a point-mass model describing the forces applied to the center of gravity. This model is formulated as a set of differential algebraic equations that must be integrated over a time interval in order to predict the successive aircraft positions in this interval. The point-mass model requires knowledge of the aircraft state (mass, thrust, etc), atmospheric conditions (wind, temperature), and aircraft intent (target speed or climb rate, for example).
