Air Navigation Systems are increasingly being challenged by significant increases in traffic volume, which are projected to double by 2025. These systems also demand seamless information sharing to enable new operational requirements, such as ubiquitous and real-time access to flight data information and improved gate-to-gate services. Several programs in Europe and USA, such as the CoFlight European Flight Data Processor (eFDP), ICOG, SWIM, SESAR, and NEXT-GEN, are investigating how these challenges can be addressed from a technological and operational perspective. The OMG Data Distribution Service (DDS)—already embraced by programs such as CoFlight and ICOG-2—is emerging as a key standard technology for enabling system-wide interoperability since it can ensure the performance, availability, and determinism required by Air Navigation Systems. The webcasts will (1) explain what is motivating the swift adoption of DDS in next-generation Air Navigation Systems and (2) provide concrete examples of using OpenSplice DDS to solve challenging Air Navigation Scenarios.
I am running this webcast tomorrow, hope to see you there!
