Abstract
The ability to meet a controlled time of arrival during a continuous descent operation will enable environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient descent operations while simultaneously maintaining airport throughput. However, if the wind forecast used to compute the initial trajectory plan is not accurate enough, the guidance system will need to correct time deviations from the plan during the execution of the descent. Previous work proposed an onboard guidance strategy based on model predictive c...
