Cloud computing for air traffic management
Indra and Microsoft are working on a project which enables the control of air traffic data from the Cloud, through the AZURE platform.
The two tech companies have joined forces for the successful development of their project, and they have already completed its first phase. The AZURE platform will enable the control of air traffic.
Through this platform, air navigation service provides will be granted access to a “public cloud” with a high level of cybersecurity for secure air traffic control. In case any air traffic centre experiences problems, another one will be able to take over its activity through this system. This will make it possible to centralize the services and save on infrastructure. Moreover, thanks to Azure, air traffic control centres may be created outside of a state, enabling the substitution of the national system in case of natural disasters.
The platform will also allow air traffic controllers to provide service outside of their habitual work environment, it will even facilitate the training of air controllers through virtual reality techniques.
Indra and Microsoft are already studying other cloud applications for flight management.
At IoT DIH our objective is to help companies work together on improving technological systems, like we did for our partner, Indra.
