Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE

Abstract

This is the final report of the IFATS project, which studied a revolutionary concept for a future air transportation system (ATS) by adding as much onboard automation and autonomy to the aircraft as necessary to fulfil the overall requirements of improved efficiency and safety of air transportation.

The report begins with some background on current air transport system and the description of the consortium involved in the project. It explains the project's objectives and the concepts it was based on and later evolved. Conclusions and recommendations for future research follow, along with the estimations for a future ATS roadmap.
