Welcome to our 22nd Integrated Communications, Navigation and Surveillance Systems (ICNS) Conference.
Thanks so much for joining us.
ICNS started in 2001 as a NASA workshop in Cleveland, Ohio during the onset of NextGen in the U.S., but it didn’t stop there. The ICNS Conference has grown into a premier international aviation conference on communications, navigation, and surveillance (CNS) and air traffic management (ATM). It provides a forum for thought leaders, policymakers, researchers, and other technical experts from government, industry, and academia around the world to address significant challenges of new entrants and new types of operations, while ensuring the safety, sustainability, and efficiency of air traffic management. We bring people together, we keep the community informed, and we recognize the best.
ICNS Conference 2022
Theme: CNS for Autonomous Operations: Policy, Verification, Validation, and Certification
The 22nd Integrated Communications, Navigation and Surveillance Hybrid Conference (In-person & Virtual)
April 5-7, 2022
Westin Washington Dulles Airport
Herndon, Virginia, USA
The 2022 ICNS program focuses on the promises, challenges, and developments in the areas of policy, verification, validation, and certification of autonomous operations in CNS and ATM. The aviation field has entered a new digital era with ever-increasing autonomy by vehicles in the air and ATM systems on the ground. Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and other innovative technologies promise unprecedented performance yet present significant challenges for the verification, validation, and certification.
