- Lot 2: Study of the air-traffic management system market in support of standardization actions;
- Lot 3: Support for standardization actions in global navigation satellites;
- Lot 4: Application and demonstration experiments to explore and promote the use of telematics technologies to support advanced concepts in air transport;
- Lot 5: Study of the effect of wake vortices in air transport;
- Lot 6: The application of telematics to meteorological services;
