Jeppesen Airspace and Airport Modeling Aiding Graduate Student Learning

Madrid-based university using Jeppesen TAAM solution to enhance air traffic management graduate research

Englewood, Colo. | 26 Sep 2016 | By Jeppesen

Jeppesen, a Boeing Company, has agreed to issue the Universidad Carlos III in Madrid an educational license to use its Total Airspace and Airport Modeler (TAAM) software to enhance graduate-level research related to the study of air traffic management within its Department of Bioengineering and Aerospace Engineering.

Starting this fall, the university will incorporate instruction on general TAAM simulation concepts and practices into its regular aerospace engineering curriculum. It will provide 10 user licenses within its simulation lab environment to assist aerospace engineering students with related master’s thesis development. Universidad Carlos III is the latest in a growing number of universities that have integrated discounted academic Jeppesen TAAM licenses as an option for students within its educational resources and curriculum.

“The addition of TAAM software from Jeppesen provides our graduate-level students with state of the art simulation technology that is used in real world design applications,” said Manuel Soler, Aerospace Engineering assistant professor, Universidad Carlos III. “Being able to gain hands-on experience with this technology from the aviation sector offers our students the opportunity to gain practical knowledge in a dynamic airspace and airport simulation and modelling environment.”

Jeppesen TAAM technology provides a platform to create and analyze multiple factors in a simulated air traffic management environment to ultimately design more efficient airport and airspace operations. The technology is typically used in the aviation field by civil aviation agencies, air navigation service providers, airlines and airports to make more informed decisions.

“We welcome Universidad Carlos III Madrid into the TAAM user family and are glad to provide the technology to support and educate the next generation of fast-time simulation users, said Charles Steigerwald, director, Jeppesen Airspace Solutions. “Usage at the university level puts TAAM at the forefront of aviation research and serves to educate both students and Jeppesen on the simulation of new and innovative strategies within the air traffic management domain.”
