4 November from 10.00 - 11.30 AM CET Free of charge
The word virtualisation is used in many relations and the reality is, that, as the vision in the Airspace Architecture, we are talking “Remote En-route ATC”. What are the drivers behind the concept, what are the implications and opportunities, and what are the initial barriers? This is not a SESAR R&D perspective, but COOPANS considerations of how to exploit if the expected benefits are realistic. The presentation is followed by an interactive Q&A session.
