Using ADS-B Data to Develop New Metrics for Flight Efficiency

Each day, ADS-B signals from aircraft enable real-time tracking of hundreds of thousands of flights on the Flightradar24 network. Thanks to the reliability and volume of that data, it is now playing a valuable role in detailed analysis of air traffic management. Flightradar24 provided extensive flight data, enabling researchers at Centro de Referencia I+D+i ATM (CRIDA), Boeing Research & Technology Europe (BR&TE) and Centre for Applied Data Analytics (CeADAR) to conduct an ADS-B based air traffic performance assessment to measure air navigation service provider and airline flight efficiency in Europe.

NASA Completes ATD-1 Flight Testing

NASA, Honeywell, Boeing, and United Airlines spent the month of February testing a new technology that could enable more aircraft to safely land at an airport in a given time period. The tool, Flight Deck Interval Management (FIM), is being developed as part of NASA’s larger Air Traffic Management (ATM) Technology Demonstration – 1 (ATD-1). (more…)
