Abstract:

In earlier work we established a link between finite time viability and invariance for continuous systems and the viscosity solutions to partial differential equations which are variants of the standard Hamilton-Jacobi equation. In this paper we show how these results can be applied to address the problem of ensuring that an aircraft does not deviate from the flight level assigned to it by air traffic control. The application illustrates the advantages of the proposed viability characterisation: it makes the numerical solution of the problem easier!
