In this paper it have been shown that how ARTMAP (ART1) neural networks can be used to compute automatically a balanced sectoring of airspace to increase air traffic control capacity in high density airspace area. Crossing points between two airports may generate conflicts between two aircrafts when their trajectories converge on it at the same time and induce a risk of collision.
