Optimization of Arrival and Departure Routes in Terminal Maneuvering Area

Abstract : Airport is both the starting and ending point of air traffic. The sharp increase in air traffic flow causes directly traffic congestion in Terminal Maneuvering Area (TMA) which affects the normal operation of the flights. Optimizing departure and arrival procedures is therefore crucial to regulate air traffic flow. This research focuses on generating 3D Standard Instrument Departure routes and Standard Terminal Arrival Routes in TMA at a strategic level. We propose an optimization approach to generate 3D routes avoiding obstacles and assuring a minimum separation between routes. The method combines Fast Marching Method and Simulated Annealing.
