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.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Francetic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
