Data Driven ATM: Going Digital!

On 8th March 2018 the BigData4ATM project team participated in the workshop "Data Driven ATM: Going Digital!", which took place during the World ATM Congress in Madrid. The workshop had two distinct sections. The objective of the first session was to provide the workshop participants with an overview of Big Data techniques currently being used in the ATM research domain. In addition to BigData4ATM, two other projects sponsored by the SESAR Exploratory Research programme, COPTRA and DART, presented their work. The second session ran a Panel that aimed to identify the areas of interest for key ATM actors, as well the Big Data technologies that need to be developed in the ATM domain. Amongst the panellists there were representatives from CANSO, IATA, Airbus and Boeing. The panel was moderated by CRIDA.
