AGIT 2014 – Geospatial Innovation for Society

Researchers of the University of Salzburg participated in the AGIT 2014 from July 2nd to July 4th 2014 in Salzburg, Austria. They presented their research in new publications:

  • F. Zobl, R. Marschallinger, T. Gräupl, E. Pschernig, and C.-H. Rokitansky, „Simulationsgestützte Missionsplanung für B-VLOS RPAS im überregionalen Katastrophenhilfeeinsatz,“ in Proc. Symp. Angewandte Geoinformatik, Salzburg, Austria, 2014.

VDL Mode 2 Capacity and Performance Analysis started

The Objective of the study is to provide SESAR and the entire ATM community with a reliable picture concerning the VDL2 capability to support the evolution and the exploitation of DL services over the next years, when its limitations will be reached and what would be the consequences of reaching them, on the basis of the assumptions made. The project partners expect such a study to represent a major enabler for clearing the future with the current uncertainties on which technological direction should be undertaken to secure the proper exploitation of the SESAR Future ATM Concept and by when, ultimately, significant R&D, standardisation, industrialisation and deployment activities should be displaced to overcome the risk of having, in the next future, the available air/ground communication infrastructure being a major impeding factor to the achievement of the expected improvements of the European ATM system toward the High Level Goals depicted by the European ATM Master Plan and, to a wider stack, by the ICAO Global Air Navigation Plan and the connected Aviation System Block Upgrades, by Horizon2020 and ultimately by the Flightpath 2050.
