As the number of aircraft is expected to triple in the coming decades, the manual process used to safely route aircraft while in flight will become insufficient. There already exist work to algorithmically detect safe and unsafe routes between aircraft. This thesis extends that system such that the computation is distributed across multiple machines. In addition it also supports the detection of an unsafe route as it is actively modified by a third party. Furthermore, the system supports providing safe or unsafe route notification to multiple interested clients.
