LOW-COST, SECURE SURVEILLANCE FOR SMALLER AIRPORTS

This Solution was formerly part of PJ.14-04-03-W1

Advances in cooperative and non-cooperative surveillance systems open up opportunities to deliver a broader range of services and to operate within a wider range of environments. SESAR is looking at how to add new capabilities - such as security screening – to cooperative and non-cooperative surveillance systems including multi-sensor trackers, and ADS-B and wide area multilateration (WAM) systems.

SESAR research focuses on the security of single and composite cooperative surveillance systems and evolving threats from the RF-interface. The work includes analysis of security performance metrics in the absence of existing requirements. The candidate solution aims to identify dedicated security related key performance indicators for ADS-B, WAM, multilateration (MLAT) and the tracker function for single and composite surveillance. Composite surveillance in particular has the potential to lower the cost of implementation, and to deliver appropriate levels of performance; for example, to meet the needs of regional airports or remote tower environments. By combing sources of sensor data, at sensor level or on a display, surveillance data becomes more robust and secure. The security aspects will also help to remove barriers to entry for ADS-B.

The candidate solution will analyse the metrics for the minimum detection and integrity performances achievable for the ADS-B, WAM and composite systems in terms of the functions of security continuity, integrity, time to alarm, and accuracy.
