The objective of the proposed effort is to investigate issues associated with the design and implementation of decision aiding tools to assist in improving the departure process at congested airports. This effort follows a preliminary investigation of potential departure planning approaches and strategies which identified potential benefits in departure efficiency, and also in reducing environmental impact of aircraft in the departure queue. The objective of this follow-on effort is to address key implementation issues and to expand the observational base to include airports with different constraints and traffic demand.
