ON THE CONFLICT FREQUENCY AT AIR ROUTE INTERSECTIONS

The paper extends previous results, and the number of crossing conflicts, at route intersections or route transitions, is shown to be expressable as a random sum of correlated random variables. This allows for a detailed derivation of the variance and approximate probability distribution for the number of crossing conflicts. Results indicate that the variance of the conflict frequency may be considerably larger than that obtained by the Poisson assumption. A numerical example is included with results compared to those of a numerical simulation of intersection conflicts.
