We have published the following paper: Robust Aircraft Trajectory Planning under Wind Uncertainty using Optimal Control. D. González-Arribas, Manuel Soler, and Manuel Sanjrujo. Journal of Guidance, Control, and Dynamics. Accepted for publication (Sept. 2017). The final (edited by AIAA) version will be made available very soon in articles in advance (with a DOI assigned) and thereafter assigned to a...
We are organizing a Workshop on “Uncertainty and Air Traffic Management”. The workshop is organized within the framework of Opt-Met project (funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness). TBO-Met project (funded by SESAR under H2020) activities will be also presented. You can find all the information @ Workshop on “Uncertainty...
Fundamentals of Aerospace Engineering, in its first edition published in 2014, has been a success (in my modest opinion): More than 1500 units sold via the various CreateSpace distribution channels; more than 2500 downloads at the website; more than 12000 reads in ResearchGate. Nevertheless, improvements are always needed. Along these (almost) four years, several errata have been spotted and...
