Aircraft cybersecurity: The pilot's perspective

Aircraft interact with countless different networks around the globe, all with varying degrees of security, so cyber attacks pose an ongoing threat to aircraft. However, experts within the government and industry have expressed somewhat divergent views about the potential for such threats to be realized.

Future of airline operations

Operation Control Centre perspective

This brochure was developed based on the results provided by the OCC project as part of the SESAR programme.

Operational improvements for Flight Operations Centre (FOC) – usually known as Airline Operations Centre (AOC) or Operations Control Center (OCC) – were developed during the last five years of the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR 1) programme.

SESAR aims to modernise the Air Traffic Management system with a view to:

  • increase safety
  • reduce environmental impact
  • reduce ATM costs
  • increase airspace capacity

The following operational improvements will allow airlines to increase the efficiency of their operations.

Dossier 45 – Cyberattacks targeting air transport

Executive Summary and Recommendations

The Working Group of the Air and Space Academy focused its thinking on the following theme:
Cyberattacks may cause accidents or create serious incidents that endanger
passengers and crews.
How to reduce the risks of occurrence and avert their consequences?

A proposal for the future architecture of the European airspace

SESAR Joint Undertaking

The Single European Airspace System proposed in this study is an evolution of the European airspace architecture that leverages modern technologies to decouple the service provision from the local infrastructure. At the same time it increases progressively the level of collaboration and automation support through a data rich and cyber-secured connected ecosystem. Such an evolution opens new business opportunities through creation of a dynamically distributed system, while fully respecting the sovereignty of Member States in relation to their airspace. With this proposal, airspace configuration and design are optimised from a European network point of view, connecting airports and taking due consideration of major traffic flows across Europe. Data services made available to trusted users feed advanced air traffic control tools, allowing operational harmonisation and bringing the level of performance of each control centre to that of today’s top 10% -20% performers.

Report of the Wise Persons Group on the future of the Single European Sky

The Single European Sky has been and still is our dream. But the reality is that today’s performance of our air traffic management (ATM) network does not serve airspace users or the passengers in the way it should. The impact of airspace inefficiencies for the travelling public and airspace users is not acceptable.

DG MOVE established a “Wise Persons Group” on the future of the Single European Sky (SES) to produce recommendations for the direction that European ATM should take, in order to deliver better performance and better services while taking into account the continuous growth of air traffic.
