Abstract
Aircraft trajectory planning under wind effect is a critical issue to save fuel consumption and to reduce flight time. However, wind as a kind of natural phenomenon has great uncertainties, which increases the difficulty of trajectory optimization. This paper proposes a aircraft trajectory optimization method which is base on interval analysis method under wind uncertainties. This method uses weather forecast information, based on Gray mathematical theory interval quantification to determinate the interval of the wind speed on every wind grid points. By combining interval analysis method and Bellman method, the minimal flight time consumption trajectory interval is found. Finally, this method is successfully applied on North Atlantic Ocean. Compared with tradition probability method, this method dramatically reduces the optimization time and improves the computational efficiency.
