It is perhaps fitting that SESAR JU partners chose the Spanish word for lighthouse, FARO, as the name for their project. As Christian Verdonk Gallego, FARO Project Manager from CRIDA, explains, the project is hoping to shine a light on how changes in air traffic management systems can impact safety and resilience.
There is growing pressure on the ATM system to become more cost efficient and at the same time manage traffic that is set to become more complex and diversified. All the while maintaining the already high levels of safety! This sounds like a bit of conundrum, but it is one that can be solved with the help of artificial intelligence, explains Paula López-Catalá from Innaxis from the recently started SafeOPs project.
