Modeling Air Traffic Systems - Industrial Engineering and Management Systems

The world is a random and chaotic place — yet for some reason, most of our air traffic simulations are deterministic. The goal of this project is to use big-data tools to build decision models of how controllers
manage aircraft (and/or how pilots fly aircraft). This project will help build NextGen systems that are safer and more efficient.
