A holistic approach towards CNS


Event description

The historical national ownership of communications, navigation and surveillance (CNS) infrastructure, as well as the need to support a variety of heterogeneously equipped airspace users (civil and military), has led to inefficiencies in the system. In addition, some technologies still in operation have overlapping capabilities and, in a context of steady growth, may not be able to provide the required performance to deliver the SESAR vision. Therefore, the main challenge is to optimise the infrastructure and rationalise it both on the ground and in the air.

The SESAR CNS roadmap contained in the European ATM Master Plan sets out how to do this by applying a holistic approach to the separate domains of CNS surveillance by looking for commonalities in their performance based approach and taking advantage of cross-domain synergies.

This webinar will highlight:

  • How safety and security assessments play a key role in building a bridge from operational safety and efficiency needs towards the CNS quality of service requirements that drive technological innovation.
  • How to tackle issues with the underlying spectrum, which is subject to radio interference, ionospheric disruptions, jamming and spoofing attacks.
  • How to develop more spectrum-efficient ATM and safeguard this critical aviation resource as it comes under pressure from new-entrants and non-aviation domains in need of it.
