Safety, complexity and responsibility based design and validation of highly automated air traffic management (iFLY) — FP6 Aerospace

Participant : François Le Gland.

See  3.4 and  4.2 .

INRIA contract ALLOC 2399 — May 2007 to August 2010.

This FP6 project is coordinated by National Aerospace Laboratory (NLR) (The Netherlands). The academic partners are University of Cambridge and University of Leicester (United Kingdom), Politecnico di Milano and Universita dell'Aquila (Italy), University of Twente (The Netherlands), ETH Zürich (Switzerland), University of Tartu (Estonia), National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and Athens University of Economics and Business (Greece), Direction des Services de la Navigation Aérienne (DSNA), École Nationale de l'Aviation Civile (ENAC), Eurocontrol Experimental Center (EEC) and INRIA Rennes Bretagne Atlantique (France), and the industrial partners are Honeywell (Czech Republic), Isdefe (Spain), Dedale (France), NATS En Route Ltd. (United Kingdom).

The objective of iFLY is to develop both an advanced airborne self separation design and a highly automated air traffic management (ATM) design for en–route traffic, which takes advantage of autonomous aircraft operation capabilities and which is aimed to manage a three to six times increase in current en–route traffic levels. The proposed research combines expertise in air transport human factors, safety and economics with analytical and Monte Carlo simulation methodologies. The contribution of ASPI to this project concerns the work package on accident risk assessment methods and their implementation using conditional Monte Carlo methods, especially for large scale stochastic hybrid systems: designing and studying variants  [30] suited for hybrid state space (resampling per mode, marginalization) are currently investigated.
