Here is a snapshot of what we’re doing. Take a look at our blogposts and the latest news from Deep Blue.

Yesterday, together with Brainsigns, we were at Eurocontrol Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre, supporting simulation session for the pre-operational validation of a new airspace design of the sectors over Brussels. We measured in real time the impact of this change on controllers' workload and stress in different conditions. We obtained detailed, objective data on the workload...

A wave of new systems based on automation is rapidly changing the Air Traffic Management. Consequently, the work of the air traffic controllers all over Europe is changing as well. Do these changes affect attribution of legal liabilities? How? Answering these questions is the purpose of the Automation and Liability in ATM course. In short, it...

The new EASA Basic Regulation on drones (2018/1139) is finally in force. Now, everyone in Europe (manufacturers, operators, pilots, and also CAAs) has the duty to stick to it. Are you a professional in the aviation industry? Are you unsure of what changes the new regulation introduced? Then, this course is the ideal starting point...

We are glad to take part today in the SESAR PAGAR (Performance Assessment and Gap Analysis Report) Preview Workshop, kindly hosted by ENAV in Rome. PAGAR is one of the flagships of SESAR PJ19 CI. It summarizes all Performance results that Solutions have obtained during Wave 1 of SESAR 2020. This workshop will give a preview...

Quali saranno le future conoscenze, abilità e competenze richieste ai professionisti dell'aeronautica del futuro? Scoprirlo è l’obiettivo del progetto Skill-UP, coordinato da Deep Blue, che partirà nel 2020 su finanziamento del programma europeo Erasmus+. Viola De Sando, copy editor del portale FASI.biz, ci ha intervistati per scoprire, tramite l'esperienza di Skill-UP, come ottenere i fondi UE...

Che ruolo hanno gli aspetti socio-culturali nella prevenzione e gestione delle emergenze? Gli eventi accaduti in Europa nel corso degli ultimi anni e le emergenze provocate dall’uomo hanno colpito il benessere dei cittadini eleggendo la sicurezza a tema centrale del dibattito pubblico. La comprensione del rischio, il coordinamento tra i vari attori coinvolti e la comunicazione...

Today we are in Eurocontrol headquarters in Brussels (Belgium) to kick-off SAFEMODE, a H2020 project on making Human Factors data and information usable for system and operations designers, safety managers, and regulators. The main challenge of SAFEMODE will be decoding the Human Factors iceberg. While the tip represents what is visible (the human involvement in accidents/incidents),...

We're honoured to have received the Italian Best Awards 2019 prize for our contribution in the field of safety and human factors, recognising the work we do to enhance safety levels in complex systems like aviation, maritime and Industry 4.0. It is rewarding to see our job recognised and to be considered a “Made in...

The International Airport Review just published an article by our collaborators Paola Tomasello, Stefano Bonelli and Vera Ferraiuolo about three ways neuroscience can support the development of Air Traffic Management (ATM) in the future. As the role of air traffic controllers shifts to a more observatory one, does neuroscience hold the key to ensuring this...
