TRANSIT (Towards a Robust Airport Decision Support System for Intelligent Taxiing) is a four site project between Queen Mary University of London, the University of Sehffield, University of Stirling and Cranfield University, funded by the UK EPSRC (grant numbers EP/N029496/1, EP/N029356/1, EP/N029577/1). The lead at each site is, respectively, Dr Jun Chen, Prof Mahdi Mahfouf, Dr John Woodward and Dr Mudassir Lone, with Dr Chen as the overall project director. The project also has an extensive list of industrial partners, which currently includes Air France – KLM, BAE Systems, Manchester Airport Plc, Rolls-Royce Plc, Simio LLC and Zurich Airport.

The TRANSIT project aims to develop a unified routing and scheduling system which will be more Realistic, Robust, Cost-effective and Configurable,  producing better conformance of flight crew in response to 4 Dimensional Trajectories.
