This book presents the proceedings of the First International Air Transport and Operations Symposium, ATOS 2010, held at the Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands. The focus of ATOS 2010 and these proceedings is on how air transport can evolve in order to continue to add value in the 21st Century, given its incredible impact in the 20th Century. It covers topics ranging from:
- Airlines, Airports & ATM
- Service Support & Life Cycle Analysis
- Engineering Value Analysis, Cost Modeling & Business Innovation
- Air Transport Integration, Environmental Impact & Technology Innovation
Some of the key aerospace value challenges are typified by the SESAR goals for 2020 in being able to handle a threefold increase in capacity, improving safety by a factor of 10, reducing environmental impact by 10% and reducing expenses by a half. In this collection of articles the reader will find plenty of stimulating research and challenging ideas to help achieve these goals as we venture into the 2nd century of aviation.
