Knowledge of aircraft wake vortex circulation is very essential for promoting aviation safety and airport capacity. In foggy conditions, cloud water droplets suspended as fog (here called fog drops) inside the wake have almost identical velocity with the wake vortex due to the weak inertia of the droplets. By taking this property into account, we propose two methods to retrieve the circulation of wake vortex in fog with a side-looking scanning radar. In the methods, while the radar beam scans alternatively up and down, the vortex cores are identified from the Doppler spectra at different incident angles, and the circulation is finally boiled down to very simple expressions related to the Doppler velocities. Numerical simulation results verify the good performance of the methods. © 2016 IEEE.

The system effectiveness of an air traffic control (ATC) center and its variation directly affect the workload of a controller and the capacity of the airspace controlled by the ATC center. They are the key operational parameters of an ATC control system. Based on an effectiveness conceptual framework of system performance and the analytic method of a system contributory model, this article presents an effectiveness analysis procedure for the system of an ATC center. A 9×50 matrix is created which characterized the behavior of the whole system and the performance deviation caused by status changes of inner and outer elements. The value of each element contributing to the whole system is calculated upon an investigation of the opinions of system specialists and controllers. And the article performs an evaluation of the system effectiveness of an operational ATC center by this model, which reveals certain distinguishing features of system effectiveness and their variation. The evaluating results show good conformity with the judgment made by operation specialists, which verify the rationality of the effectiveness contributory model of an ATC system and the analytic approach used in this article.

Based on the conceptual framework and measurement method of system effectiveness developed via behavior analysis, this paper presents a layered model of objective tree and a contributory model characterized the behavior relationship between inner and outer elements of system. A set of computation formula is derived from the models which can be used to calculate the system effectiveness index and the system effectiveness factor. The contribution of inner and outer elements to the system effectiveness are discussed, which shows the reasonableness of the models and method. The methodology presented in this paper can be called contributory model method, or SEIF (System effectiveness index and factor) method, can be applied to the analysis and evaluation of system effectiveness.

To solve the problem that the flight delay is difficult to predict, the support vector machine regression method is used to establish the flight arrival delay prediction model. First, the phase space reconstruction theory is used to calculate the flight arrival delay's the delay time, embedded dimension and maximum Lyapunov exponent, and the chaotic characteristics of the flight arrival delay time sequence is found. The phase space of the flight arrival delay time sequence is reconstructed and combined with the departure delay of the upstream airport's flight using the same aircraft to build the input variable vector of the prediction model. Second, for selecting the optimal model parameters, the particle swarm algorithm, differential evolution algorithm and genetic algorithm are compared, the experiment shows that differential evolution algorithm can get the optimal prediction model with a higher probability. Last, the prediction performance of the model, the single factor prediction model and the relevance vector machine prediction model are compared. The results show that the prediction performance of the model is much better than the other two, the model can effectively predict flight delays. Copyright © 2015 by Science Press.

Multiple earth observing satellites need to communicate with each other to observe plenty of targets on the Earth together. The factors, such as external interference, result in satellite information interaction delays, which is unable to ensure the integrity and timeliness of the information on decision making for satellites. And the optimization of the planning result is affected. Therefore, the effect of communication delay is considered during the multi-satellite coordinating process. For this problem, firstly, a distributed cooperative optimization problem for multiple satellites in the delayed communication environment is formulized. Secondly, based on both the analysis of the temporal sequence of tasks in a single satellite and the dynamically decoupled characteristics of the multi-satellite system, the environment information of multi-satellite distributed cooperative optimization is constructed on the basis of the directed acyclic graph (DAG). Then, both a cooperative optimization decision making framework and a model are built according to the decentralized partial observable Markov decision process (DEC-POMDP). After that, a satellite coordinating strategy aimed at different conditions of communication delay is mainly analyzed, and a unified processing strategy on communication delay is designed. An approximate cooperative optimization algorithm based on simulated annealing is proposed. Finally, the effectiveness and robustness of the method presented in this paper are verified via the simulation. © 2016 Beijing Institute of Aerospace Information.
