Research Project: Integrated Multimodal Airport Operations

IMHOTEP (Integrated Multimodal Airport Operations for Efficient Passenger Flow Management) is a research project funded under SESAR 2020 Exploratory Research

The goal of IMHOTEP is to develop a concept of operations and a set of data analysis methods, predictive models and decision support tools that allow information sharing, common situational awareness and real‑time collaborative decision-making between airports and ground transport stakeholders. IMHOTEP is conducted by consortium composed by Nommon (Project Coordinator), Cranfield University, ISDEFE, Aimsun, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, Technical University of Dresden, AENA, EMT Palma and London City Airport.

CAST has been selected to be the backbone of the test environment for the planned case studies. The case studies will cover two airports with heterogeneous characteristics and serving different markets, namely the Palma de Mallorca and the London City airports. Digital twin simulation models of these airports in CAST can then be used to test the newly developed methods and tools of this project.
