Abstract : This paper deals with the strategic control concept, intended as a new management philosophy that can improve efficiency of ATC systems. After having introduced a classification of the different ATC functions, based on a multilevel scheme, strategic control is decomposed in a hierarchy of sub-functions. Subsequently, the 'on-line strategic control of flights' is considered and the mathematical aspects of this problem are illustrated. Then the structure of a real time solution algorithm, proposed in a previous work, and a possible scheme of route-time profile generation are reported. Finally, computational efficiency of the proposed approach is discussed.
