Objectives

The SAFELAND project aims at supporting flight and landing of aircraft operated by a single pilot, in case of partial or total incapacitation of the pilot. SAFELAND focuses on the ground side and in particular on the role ATM could have in managing the transition from a single pilot operated flight to a status with reduced or absent contribution of the onboard pilot to landing. SAFELAND is investigating the interaction of the air traffic controller with onboard automation and/or a ground based pilot operating through a remote cockpit position to manage the flight. The concept is being evaluated at main phases of its development with different evaluation techniques including a real time simulation integrating a cockpit simulator, a control work position, a ground cockpit simulator and a simulated Airline Operation Control Centre. Evaluation investigates different aspects including human factor, safety, security and cybersecurity, legal, economic and regulatory. SAFELAND results will be communicated and disseminated ensuring scientific links and exchange of information, data and results with research initiatives in different framework programme and in particular with the single pilot studies of CleanSky. The project will last 24 months followed by other 6 months exclusively dedicated to Communication, Dissemination and Exploitation.
