Project started!

March 1, 2016

On March 1st, 2016 the NAVISAS project began under SESAR 2020 exploratory research program, which serves to contribute to modernize air traffic management in Europe. NAVISAS is one of 28 projects that have been selected for funding by the SESAR Joint Undertaking.

NAVISAS (Navigation of airborne vehicle with integrated space and atomic signals) will propose a novel concept of APNT for small aircraft that will integrate novel technologies and will merge multiple navigation technologies into one with no major impact on avionics.

Only NAVISAS and SAPIENT have been selected for research in Communication, Navigation and Surveillance.

NAVISAS has four Partners: TEKEVER ASDS (Coordinator), CSEM, THALES and SHARK.AERO.
