Leading Europe in ATM research and innovation

We are building the future of the European aviation industry, helping it maintain its global competitive edge. We are the first organization in Europe for the number of projects awarded and implemented within SESAR’s Exploratory Research programme to investigate new ideas, concepts and technologies for the future of air traffic management and aviation. We coordinate research partnerships with the best Italian and European universities. We are leaders in Europe in the application of neurometric measurements (see the Nina, Stress, Moto e Mahalo projects) and in the definition of standards and regulations for drone operations (see AW-Drones project).


A reputation for excellence in the ATM sector

We work with outstanding Italian companies in the ATM and airport sectors providing support to our clients’ operational needs. We partner with ENAV and have contributed to design the operational centre and control station layout for the first remote digital tower in Brindisi. We work with Aeroporti di Roma (ADR) and SEA-Aeroporti Milano researching multimodal traffic management and consulting on work stress, safety and Crisis Management.
