I am trying to get informed about Autonomous Air Traffic Control. Communication is crucial in this field. I am aware that different possibilities exist to realize it, for example:
- an ad-hoc network for aircraft-to-aircraft communication
- an infrastructure-based communication system
of course infrastructure-based communication systems (meaning a geostationary satellite) include a high propagation delay.
Anyways, I am thinking about a good solution for this problem and am currently looking for research papers in this field. I figured, maybe someone here knows some good sources already?
