Development of an innovative LIDAR technology for new generation ATM paradigms

Objective

The SKY-Scanner project involves the development of demonstrator of an innovative LIDAR technology (SKY-Scanner System) based on a rotating laser range-finder array capable to detect and track of aircrafts up to at least 6 nautical miles from the ATZ barycentre, namely a facility of enabling techniques, protocols, numerical prediction tools and devices specifically designed for the analysis of the laser systems performances in ATC applications, with the final target of defining a new generation ATM paradigm based on radar and laser tracking data fusion, and ground to air laser communications.

The proposed methodology is considered at the frontier of technological research but it represents the only realistic way to put solid basis for the fabrication of effective radar and lidar integrated systems for incorporation in new generation ATM paradigms.
