Manuel Mateos Villar defends his doctoral thesis on the prediction of aircraft trajectories in the pre-tactical phase using machine learning techniques
Manuel Mateos Villar defended his doctoral thesis, with industrial doctorate mention, co-supervised by Xavier Prats (UPC) and Oliva Garcia (Nommon Solutions and Technologies), entitled "Machine Learning for Aircraft Trajectory Prediction: a Solution for Pre-tactical Air Traffic Flow Management". The thesis presents a solution for traffic prediction in the pre-tactical phase that improves the predictive exercise of the current tool (PREDICT) and is able to deal with the entire set of flights in the ECAC network in a way computationally efficient. To do this, different trajectory prediction approaches based on machine learning models trained on historical data have been explored.
