NEWSKY - NEtWorking the SKY for Aeronautical Communications

The main goal of NEWSKY is to integrate both, different communication technologies and different application classes, into a global heterogeneous airborne network with appropriate priority properties. The NEWSKY approach enables to achieve improved communication capabilities and assists the expected paradigm shift in future Air Traffic Management (ATM). Moreover, real air-ground integration is achieved and System Wide Information Management (SWIM) is made available to the aircraft, enabling Collaborative Decision Making (CDM). As a consequence, the NEWSKY approach supports the realization of the Single European Sky concept and helps to create a future European ATM system which is viable well beyond 2020.

TriaGnoSys contributes to the business case studies, to the specification of routing and seamless handover strategies and algorithms, and leads the IPv6-based lab demonstration for VoIP handover between terrestrial and satellite links, using real links, as well as a demonstration of advanced weather multicast applications.
