Objective

The expected performances of Space Based Technologies such as Satellite Communications (Satcom) and Satellite navigation (renewed GPS, GALILEO..) beyond 2010 offer the prospect of increased autonomous aircraft operation that will improve the operational capacity and safety of the air transport system with regard to the "Single European Sky" initiative. Anastasia aims to carry out research, evaluation and cost benefit analysis to define COM and NAV new technologies and new avionics architecture suitable for aircraft operation in the future satellite based European Air Traffic Management environment for the future corresponding CMS functionality. Outputs will be validated by theoretical analysis, by mock-up evaluations and selected flight-testing. For Navigation a number of performance evaluations of various architectures will be made from a core system built from a multi-constellation, multi-frequency satellite positioning reception principle. The investigated solutions will include antenna design, advanced signal processing, receiver integration and hybridisation techniques with low cost inertial sensors. On the communication side, work will concentrate on the design and implementation of a prototype, affordable aeronautical satcom system that will meet the evolving European ATM requirements. Research will also be made into higher bandwidth services, systems and airborne equipment to efficiently meet future aircraft communication requirements, including both future ATM and passengers needs.
