Abstract
A critical component of current and emerging airspace management problem complexity lies on airspace deconfliction (AD), which consists in predicting and resolving conflicts between multiple users sharing a common airspace. Yet, current military and civilian decision support solutions for AD which could benefit the Canadian Air Force have been largely ignored so far, not to mention the absence of any explicit doctrine, and recent international efforts and exploration on advanced capabilities and decision support systems to support a growing demand. This report presents the AD problem, identifies decision support requirements at planning and execution monitoring levels for a targeted military organization, highlights and discusses the main findings of a limited survey of existing civilian and military systems and solutions to tackle AD, outlines decision support deficiencies and limitations, and emphasizes benefits and strengths expected from suitable automated decision support capability. The study also describes current trends and future challenges, and presents some limited recommendations for near-future investigations of technological solutions and avenues.
