The 3rd ASDA Seminar objectives

The goal of the Air Traffic Management is to achieve a safe and orderly flow of traffic. The economical benefit of an orderly (or high) flow is immediately clear, but who should pay for the safety? And how much should we spend to achieve an advancement in safety? Or on the environment? Are the goals set in Flight Path 2050 economically feasible? On top of this, the Air Transport System is a distributed system with ground and airborne elements and many different stakeholders. This often means costs and benefits are also distributed. And not necessarily in the same way: very often the costs lie elsewhere in place and time compared to the benefits.

ASDA members and several other researchers work on advancing the efficiency, sustainability and safety of air transport. What is the economical side of these developments? Do we take that into account sufficiently? How can we make a trade-off between the different aspects and interests? Are we currently on the right track or do we need to change the way we run ATM research? How do you make a trustworthy cost-benefit analysis of ATM research &  development?
