On 3rd July 2023, Daiki Iwata (D2), Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, recieved JTTRI Best Paper Award.




JTTRI Best Paper Award

This is the best paper award established at the ATRS2023 Kobe conference, sponsored by JTTRI.


About awarded research

title :  "Verification of fuel efficiency using the A320neo simulator by combining fixed-flight path angle descent and speed control to Kansai International Airport" ( authors:Daiki IWATA, Yuki NONAKA, Eri ITOH)


While the world aims toward carbon neutrality, the reduction of carbon footprint in the aviation industry has been addressed as well. Our research proposed Fixed-flight Path Angle (FPA) descent which realizes both fuel reduction and operational feasibility of pilot and air traffic controllers. A series of experiments using A320 aircraft flight simulator conducted in 2022 showed the fuel consumption reduction benefits and operational feasibility.


Your impression & future plan

I am very honored to receive this award at the international conference ATRS. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Professor Eri Itoh and all the members of my laboratory for their enthusiastic guidance and assistance. Encouraged by this award, I will continue to work hard in my research activities.
