Paper 64 -- Air Traffic Complexity: Input-output Airspace

This paper addresses the question of describing air traffic complexity for a given traffic situation. Air traffic complexity is defined as “how difficult” a given traffic situation is from the standpoint of the air traffic controller (human controllers or automated systems). The key idea of our work is that air traffic complexity can be measured by testing the degree of difficulty for a given airspace to accept an additional aircraft. For this, we propose the input-output framework, and present a “complexity map” that extracts and clearly provides the effective complexity for a given traffic situation. We also discuss how to extract a scalar measure of air traffic complexity from the complexity map. We illustrate our methodology with a few examples.
