We consider the Airspace Sectorization Problem (ASP) in which airspace has to be partitioned into a given number of sectors, each of which being assigned to a team of air traffic controllers. The objective is to minimize the coordination workload between adjacent sectors while balancing the total workload of controllers. Many specific constraints, including both geometrical and aircraft related constraints are taken into account. The problem is solved in a constraint programming framework. Experimental results show that our approach can be used on real life problems.
Key words: Airspace sectorization / constraint programming.
