This month sees AT-One winning a major contract with Europes premier aviation research program SESAR JU. AT-One was selected as a new Associated Partner into this joint undertaking.
This move will enable AT-One and its members, Germanys DLR and Netherlands NLR, to exploit their capabilities on the development of Europes air transport system and its research efforts for clean, safe and efficient aviation. AT-Ones main contribution will cover the fields of information management, airborne communication, navigation and surveillance systems as well as the integration of unmanned aerial vehicle into SESAR.
The SESAR JU is a pan-European initiative for standardization and coordination of all air traffic management activities, launched by the European Commission and EUROCONTROL. For the first time ever SESAR JU brings together everybody involved in Europes aviation: research institutions, service providers, national and international public authorities, industry partners and costumers. The research program will shape Europes air traffic over the next decades with its ambitious goals, such as the tenfold increase in security or the improvement of the environmental impact by ten percent.
