The Integrated Communications Navigation and Surveillance (ICNS) Conference addresses long-term research and development as well as current implementation of integrated CNS technologies needed to enable programs that include but are not limited to NextGen and SESAR.
The conference is focused on providing an understanding of domestic and international CNS/ATM programs, implementation strategies, standards development, research, and ICNS technologies. As we continue the second decade of ICNS, we focus on the relationship between next generation air traffic management and the enabling communications, navigation and surveillance infrastructure that will build the bridge between CNS and ATM.
2007 marked the first year under the new sponsorship of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). From 2001 to 2006, the conference was hosted by the Space Communications Program at NASA Glenn Research Center.
