A Decision-Making Method for Landing Routes of Aircraft on the Carrier
School of Aeronautic Science and Engineering, Beihang University, Beijing 100191, China
The landing safety of aircraft is of great significance for the normal operation of an aircraft carrier. This paper presents an optimal method for landing routes of aircraft. Owing to the fuzziness of environmental information and human judgment, a decision-making method is introduced to reduce the workload of landing console operators (LCO). Specifically, a route option method for aircraft landing is proposed based on Fuzzy Multi-attribute Group Decision Making (FMAGDM). Firstly, the route option problem is described. Then the essential elements of route option are described. A group decision-making method is proposed, and the most reasonable landing route in current environment is obtained considering the knowledge composition and the weight of each decision maker. Finally, simulations under different environments are conducted. The results indicate that the decision-making method is able to adapt to the environment changes, and determine the most reasonable route for each validation case.
