About the book
Air Traffic Management (ATM) is underlying one of the daunting challenges for the aviation system. The development of European (SESAR), USA (NextGen) and Japanese (CARATS) macro programs is a crucial step for safe and efficient integration of the new incoming air traffic. Air Traffic is expected to double its current value in the following years. Moreover, new remotely-piloted users are pushing up the current ATM standards. However, this increase of different airspace users cannot be integrated without the development and implementation of a safe ATM system. Risk Assessment allows identifying hazards, quantifying severity and assessing whether the risk associated is acceptable or not. In ATM, Risk assessment is a crucial safety methodology to validate the operation of air traffic flows, airport processes or navigation accuracy.
