SANDRA – Demonstration of Networking the Sky
Under the leadership of the Institute of Communications and Navigation, a new system that will lead pilots into the digital world of the 21st century has been tested in flight trials. The European research project SANDRA developed a proof-of-principle prototype demonstrating that a single device transmits communications with the ground and via satellite, digitally at high speed. Detailed information, such as the weather or the traffic situation can therefore be exchanged between the tower and the aircraft quickly and reliably, which increases air traffic safety.
