Updating communications, navigation and surveillance to improve air traffic management
Research and development activities for digitalised operations in communications, navigation and surveillance (CNS) systems are part of the SESAR-ER4-24-2019 programme. The EU-funded FACT project aims to increase the safety, security, efficiency and solidity of future air traffic management (ATM) systems by updating CNS technology. It will support a common performance-based approach for CNS functions to meet the needs of a wide range of airspace users across diverse operations. Moreover, it will connect future fully digital and automated U-space services to conventional ATM systems, considering technological and user aspects. The project will focus on the innovative application of existing technology potentially adapted from related industrial areas such as the automotive and telecommunications sectors. The new methods will increase technical performance and reduce development costs.
