Networking the Sky for Aeronautical Communications
Within its strategic research agenda, ACARE (Advisory Council for Aeronautical Research in Europe) indicates that powerful communication is a key enabling factor for the future Air-Traffic Management (ATM) development in Europe required to support the expected sustainable growth of European air transport. However, already today bottlenecks in Air-Traffic Control (ATC) and ATM communication exist. Moreover, the expected ATM paradigm shift towards more strategic and tactical planning requires additional communication capabilities which are not yet available in current ATC/ATM communication systems.
Currently, several European research initiatives with the goal to develop improved communication technologies for aeronautical communication are conducted. These initiatives comprise ground-based, satellite-based, aircraft-to-aircraft and airport communication for all different application classes, like ATC/ATM communication, airline operational and administrative communication.
