ObjectSecurity, the leading solutions provider for secure information sharing in mission-critical industries today announced that it joins the already running EU FP6 SWIM-SUIT project: SYSTEM WIDE INFORMATION MANAGEMENT-SUPPORTED BY INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES. It supports the development of technologies for System Wide Information Management (SWIM) for the future SESAR air traffic management system. This STREP with a total budget of 11,8 M€ provides vital input into SWIM for SESAR, the next generation air traffic management system across Europe.
The main objectives of the project is a feasibility study of a System Wide Information Management (SWIM) implementation: Specification of the requirements for the SWIM prototype, validation of the technologies identified as enablers of the SWIM concept, and assessment of the organisational, legal and financial implications. The demonstrator will consider middleware and communication architectural layers. It will not consider air/ground datalink issues and operational requirement definition activities at this stage.
In addition to ObjectSecurity, the project partners include: SELEX Sistemi Integrati S.p.A., THALES ALENIA SPACE FRANCE SAS, ADVANCED RESOURCES, AIR FRANCE CONSULTING SAS, ATMB, ALITALIA S.p.A., BOEING RTE, Direction des Services de la Navigation Aérienne du Ministère des Transports, de l’Equipment, du Tourisme et de la Mer de la République Française, FREQUENTIS GmbH, NAV Portugal, ENAV S.p.A, QINETIQ Ltd., SELEX COMMUNICATIONS S.p.A., SEA S.p.A., SECTOR SA, Consorzio SICTA, UNIVERSITY OF ZILINA, EUROCONTROL, INTEGRA.
