GARDN II Projects (2014-2019)
Flight Management Performance Optimization II
Optimize the vertical and horizontal path of the aircraft within the Flight Management System while taking into account the Required Time of Arrival, the wind grids and the aircraft performance.
The research will focus on developing algorithms and strategies for a trajectory optimization having an additional constraint and on the influence of the wind structure and dynamics. New methods for reducing the fuel consumption based on dynamic winds and aircraft performance will be investigated.
The main motivation of the project is to reduce overall carbon emissions and flight costs.
