Delivering an integrated airspace for the future
With more and more crewed and uncrewed aircraft taking to the skies, the complexity of airspace use is quickly exceeding the traditional Communication, Navigation (CNS) and Surveillance capabilities typically operated by an ANSP. In particular, command, control, and surveillance systems must integrate new uncrewed operations at both lower and higher altitudes while incorporating new risks including communications network reliability, ground based activities and identification of aircraft in controlled and uncontrolled airspace, to name a few. A key component to the success of these systems is the reliable and predictable delivery of high-integrity data which is crucial for the real-time identification, monitoring and deconfliction of unmanned aerial systems (UAS). This session addresses the importance of datalink path and diversity for assured connectivity and how use of deterministic systems can improve data integrity for Detect and Avoid services and mitigate risk for BVLOS operations.
