EU Research and Innovation for Air Traffic Security Workshop (September 7th, Berlin) The event organized by DIET/INFOCOM and co-chaired by FHR within ARGUS3D congregated a group of stakeholders (leading companies and research organizations) in the Security and Air Traffic Management Sectors. The high quality of the presentations combined with a very dynamic closing Round Table were instrumental to the success of the workshop.
The slides of the event as well as other material related to the Workshop will be available soon in the project results section (http://www.argus3d.eu/project-result).
ARGUS 3D (Air Guidance and Surveillance 3D) is an European Union funded 3-year collaborative project addressing ways to enhance the security of European citizens, as well as of strategic assets by contrasting, on large areas, unpredictable and unexpected terrorist threats that can be delivered by means of small and low-flying (manned or unmanned) A/C.
The project aims to improve the detection of manned and unmanned platforms by exploiting the treatment of more accurate information of cooperative as well as non-cooperative flying objects, in order to identify potentially threats.
The scope will be reached by managing the 3D position data in region including extended border lines and large areas, 24 hours a day and in all weather conditions, derived from enhanced existing Primary Surveillance Radar (PSR), together whit conventional data and information coming via various passive radar technique in order to extend the airspace coverage and to enhance the target recognition capability of the surveillance systems. Thus, the security could be enhanced in large areas, at sustainable costs, by improving the recognition of non-cooperative target through more accurate information on it s characteristics and/or more accurate positioning.
