Airborne Integrated Systems for Safety Improvement, Flight Hazard Protection and All Weather Operations

Air traffic is expected to triple world-wide within the next 20 years. With the existing on-board and on-ground systems, this would lead to an increase of aircraft accidents, in the same, or a higher proportion. Despite the fact that accidents are rare, this increase is perceived as unacceptable by society. New systems and solutions must be found to maintain the number of accidents at its current low level. This must be made first by providing the pilots with new systems allowing them to make the right decision at all times.
