Description & Coverage
Description:

As the air transportation system's capacity increase has not met the rapid growth in demand, maximizing the utilization of the infrastructure is preferred over expanding it. To make the most efficient use of the existing resources, it is then necessary to develop and implement advanced technologies.

Computational Models, Software Engineering, and Advanced Technologies in Air Transportation: Next Generation Applications disseminates knowledge on modern information technology applications in air transportation useful to professionals, researchers, and academicians. This advanced publication contains multi-disciplinary contributions from the highest reputed authorities in areas of information technology involving air traffic control, airport design, airline management, and operations.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Airline revenue based on ticket booking and cancelation events
  • Algorithms based on ground traffic control at airports
  • Commercial aircraft operation software
  • Demand of air travel
  • Developments in aeronautical software
  • Future of European air traffic
  • Improvements in airport pavements
  • Information technology and air traffic control
  • Support systems to improve air traffic management
  • Understanding competitive nature of airports
Reviews & Statements

The air transportation system is a key element in the global economy. It makes people and goods move round the world and, for many geographical places for which the surface connections to the world are precarious, it may be the only economically feasible transportation.
