  Researchers set sights on overhauling air traffic communication across Europe

Photo of article Making skies safe for travellers is a key objective of Europeans. In order to do this, communication systems that are up to 50 years old must be replaced. The information which nowadays traffic controllers and pilots exchange, mainly verbally, will be upgraded with automated data available for more people in a new air traffic security internet. A European team of researchers is currently working on restructuring air traffic across the region to meet the challenges head on. The SECOMAS ('Spectrum efficient communication for future aeronautical services') is part of the European initiative's technological and operational dimension called SESAR ('Single European sky ATM research'), which is funded in part by the European Commission with a whopping EUR 700 million. Industry and Eurocontrol, the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation made up of 39 member states and the European Community, support SESAR with another EUR 2.1 billion.
