Identify key challenges related to the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) and its successors.
Provide a logical path from the (safety-critical) problems faced by NextGen to a list of fundamental research topics
Airborne networks are mobile ad hoc networks consisting of manned and unmanned air vehicles as well as ground vehicles.
Airborne networks are mobile ad hoc networks consisting of manned and unmanned air vehicles as well as ground vehicles. The ability of air vehicles to communicate voice, video, and data without a fixed infrastructure offers enhanced safety and efficiency for Next Generation airborne networks. This workshop is an opportunity for researchers engaged in airborne networking to discuss state-of-the- art, share their research with their peers, and develop directions for future research in this emerging field.
The report summarizes the discussions of the academic community on the CPS research challenges of creating next generation aviation systems. The effort was led by Prof. Eric Feron, Georgia Tech and Hamsa Balakrishnan, MIT.
