Software defined networking architecture augmented with Artificial Intelligence to improve aeronautical communications performance, security and efficiency

Project description

Software for aeronautical protection against cyberattacks

Aeronautical data link communications networks suffer from operational issues that represent a serious threat to the safety of services. Software defined networking (SDN) is a dynamic technology that allows programmatically efficient network configuration to increase network rendering and control. The EU-funded SINAPSE project proposes an innovative, smart and safe aeronautical data link communications network design based on SDN architecture and improved with artificial intelligence (AI) that predicts and prevents safety services from power failure. As a result, the new design optimises existing network resources and performs cybersecurity operations securing protection of the network against cyberattacks.


The SINAPSE project aims at proposing an intelligent and secured aeronautical datalink communications network architecture design based on the Software Defined Networking (SDN) architecture model augmented with Artificial Intelligence (AI) to predict and prevent safety services outages, to optimize available network resources and to implement cybersecurity functions protecting the network against digital attacks
