Nokia selected for EU aviation communication, navigation and surveillance research project - Seite 2
Nokia will be responsible for leading a feasibility study and test specification for the evolution of legacy CNS systems to a new integrated approach. Nokia laboratory trials are projected to take place in the summer of 2021, with field testing by June 2022.
Harris added: “With current mobile communications to the aircraft cockpit using limited bandwidth technology, there is a need to manage an effective transition to a more robust and scalable IP-based technology capable of handling high speeds with low latency. Project FACT has the potential to help transform CNS to meet this goal, with safety and legacy services migration support as high priorities.”
Making a transformational move away from legacy non-IP based systems, the project will enable digitalized operators to test 4G and 5G for use in aviation, supporting a common performance-based approach, and addressing the future fast-growing spectrum needs of airspace users across varied operational environments.
Program FACT participants include Honeywell International as consortium lead, AOPA-Germany, Eskisehir Teknik Üniversitesi, EUROCONTROL, İstanbul Teknik Üniversitesi, Nokia and Sarp Havacilik Lojistik Turizm Sanayi ve Tic A.S. The project is receiving funding from the SESAR Joint Undertaking under the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.
Nokia is active in the aviation industry as a key technology provider to the European Aviation Network project. In November 2019, it was announced that Nokia will upgrade the entire ground-to-ground networking infrastructure for ENAV, transitioning its network to the new ENET-2 architecture. Nokia has also announced successful deployment of the Irish Aviation Authority’s next-generation air traffic control network at its new West Ireland disaster recovery center.
As the technology pillar of Europe’s Single European Sky (SES) initiative, the SESAR Joint Undertaking coordinates and concentrates all EU research and development activities in ATM, pooling a wealth of expertise to develop the new generation of ATM. Today, the SESAR Joint undertaking currently involves around 1,500 experts in Europe and beyond.
This project has received funding from the SESAR Joint Undertaking under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 894616.
