SATCOM for Aviation webinars

25.01.2022 15:00-16:30

We are pleased to announce a series of webinars organised by the SESAR 3 JU, the European Space Agency (ESA), the SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) and EUROCONTROL , which will focus on satellite technologies that are largely used by aviation to support Communication, Navigation and Surveillance safety-related services.

Satellite technologies are evolving and new modern and secured communications are being developed that offer new opportunities to meet current and emerging aviation requirements.

These new satellite communication services are now reaching sufficient technical maturity to be considered as strong candidates to enhance the current and future mobile data link applications as part of the Future Communications Infrastructure (FCI).

In order to support any potential upcoming decisions on the FCI deployment, a short series of awareness webinars on satellite technologies and related services for Air Traffic Management, will be organised by the SESAR 3 JU, the European Space Agency (ESA), the SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) and EUROCONTROL, together with panels of experts from ICAO, IATA, industry, ANSPs, airspace users and others.

These 90-minute webinars will sequentially cover the following topics:

  • SATCOM for aviation the stakeholders' perspective.(25th January 2022, 15:00-16:30 CET) - A general introduction to aviation satellite services including R&D activities.

  • IRIS Satcom a system designed for aviation. (16th Feb 2022, 15:00-16:30 CET) - An overview of the Iris system, its motivations and benefits, with the point of view of the avionics manufacturers.

  • SATCOM maturity and deployment (14th March 2022 - TBC, 15:00-16:30 CET) – An overview of the technology maturity, pre-commercial flights, airlines perspective and certification aspects.
