Remote control towers have become a reality in air traffic management. The next step is already being examined: multiple remote towers, from which more airports can be controlled simultaneously. Experimentation has begun, and multimodal aspects in virtual environments play a key role.   Air traffic in European skies is increasing. In 2017, 10 million aircraft have circulated...

La quarta rivoluzione industriale investirà anche il settore dell’Air Traffic Management. I cambiamenti sociali e le nuove tecnologie digitali influiranno sulle competenze richieste a tutto lo staff, a partire da quello operativo. In questo articolo, Linda Napoletano delinea i cambiamenti già in atto e i trend per il futuro, e le nuove competenze richieste ai controllori...

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...

Visit us at the World ATM Congress 2019: we are presenting our latest solutions for real-time neurophysiological measurement of workload and stress at Leonardo Stand (n. 890, Hall 10). Come play with us! Like video games? Ever wondered how you perform under pressure? Then, come prove yourself with our ATC game! Safely land as many aircraft as possible...

Innovation and new technologies are changing the nature of work, reshaping the human-machine relationship and replacing old jobs with new ones. As these changes greatly concern the air traffic management sector, it is necessary to prepare for them. What will happen to ATM in the next 20 years? What effects will derive from Big Data,...

After the success of the pilot edition carried out in May 2018, Eurocontrol confirmed that the course on “Liability and Automation” is in calendar also in 2019. Two slots are already scheduled (22-24 May, and 29-31 October) and registration is open. Save the date and register if you want to learn more about the fascinating,...

Nella gestione del traffico aereo le torri di controllo remote sono ormai realtà, ma già si pensa al passo successivo: torri remote multiple dalle quali controllare più aeroporti in simultanea. La sperimentazione è iniziata e gli aspetti multimodali in ambienti virtuali giocano un ruolo chiave. Aumenta il traffico nei cieli europei. Nell’ultimo anno in Europa hanno...

ANACNA (Associazione Nazionale degli Assistenti e Controllori della Navigazione Aerea) and Deep Blue met yesterday in Rome to sign a formal cooperation agreement confirming years of fruitful and friendly collaboration. The agreement paves the way forward for further joint initiatives related to the scientific research, safety and human factor in Air Traffic Management. Many thanks...

This month's issue of the SESAR newsletter features the NINA project. NINA explored the possibility to use brain waves to measure Air Traffic Controllers’ mental workload. Indeed, using neurophysiological measures to assess the mental state of ATCOs’ opened new paths to improve safety in Air Traffic Management. In fact, the real time evaluation of the...

On the 11th of February, Deep Blue presented NINA project's final results to the SESAR Joint Undertaking. NINA explored the possibility to use brain waves to measure Air Traffic Controllers’ mental workload. Using neurophysiological measures to assess the mental state of ATCOs' opened new paths to improve safety in Air Traffic Management. In fact, the...
