Towards 4D Trajectory Tracking for Transport Aircraft

Abstract : This paper presents a new approach to perform 4D trajectory tracking for transportation aircraft. As current systems are extensions of 3D guidance with overfly time constraints at some given points and no general control framework has been developed for 4D guidance of a transport aircraft; the main goal of the proposed approach is to introduce a new method based on the inversion of the flight dynamics while avoiding numerical issues. A six degree of freedom model for a wide body transportation aircraft was developed in Matlab to provide a numerical simulation of the proposed approach, showing satisfying results.
