ICNS 2014

Greetings! I’d like to personally welcome each of you to the 14th Integrated Communications, Navigation and Surveillance (ICNS) Conference.

Rafael Apaza, 2014 ICNS Conference General Chair

The global aviation field is going through challenging modernization efforts that promise improvements worldwide and ICNS strives to provide the latest programmatic and technical developments in the CNS/ATM field. This annual international conference brings together industry and government leaders, technology developers, scientists and academia from US and other nations to share CNS programmatic and technical information.

“Builds and Blocks – Air and Ground Convergence” is the theme for this year’s conference. Convergence and harmonization is key to a worldwide interoperable airspace navigation system and to explore these topics we bring together experts from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), Europe’s EUROCONTROL Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) and the United States’ NextGen Program.
