Reduced separations and improved efficiency based on Vhf cOmmunICations over LEO satEllites

Project description

Low Earth orbit satellites for efficient air traffic management

Current air traffic management in oceanic and remote airspaces relies on point to point satellite communications with different performances than communication systems used for continental airspaces. To improve the efficiency, safety and capacity of aviation, solutions using reduced minima separations in remote airspace relying on very high frequency (VHF) communication over low Earth orbit satellite systems are necessary. The EU-funded VLD2 - VOICE project will demonstrate that traffic in remote airspace can be operated as in continental airspace with satellite-based VHF systems providing voice and datalink air traffic services and that existing separation can be reduced without imperilling safety. The project will also perform various cross-border operations between neighbouring countries’ flight information regions.
