Final Report - SOFIA (Safe Automatic Flight Back and Landing of Aircraft)

Project ID: 30911
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE

Abstract

This is the final report of the SOFIA project, which was a response to the challenge of developing concepts and techniques enabling the safe and automatic return to ground in the event of hostile actions. The document begins with explaining how the current aviation safety and security needs lead to the project's objectives and then refers to the project's structure. It later goes into detail about how each step was planned and executed, before analysing the results obtained and recommending future research topics. Finally, there is a table referring to knowledge dissemination actions and plans. SOFIA moves aviation security a step forward and opens the door towards the exploration of new application areas for a flight.
