“ICNS – Renovating the Global Air Transportation System”
The 2011 Integrated Communications Navigation and Surveillance (ICNS) Conference addresses long term research and development as well as early implementation of integrated CNS technologies needed to enable NextGen and SESAR.
The Conference is focused on providing an understanding of CNS programs, longer term plans, standards development, research, and ICNS technologies. As we launch the second decade of the ICNS Conference, we focus on the renovation of the communications, navigation, surveillance, and information technology infrastructure underpinning the migration to a true next generation global air transportation system.
Each day begins with a plenary session. On Tuesday, May 10 we examine “NextGen Progress, Plans and Partnerships with the User Community,” looking at accomplishments in both development and implementation and where NextGen is heading from various stakeholder perspectives. On Wednesday, May 11 the plenary focus will be on “NextGen and SESAR – Global Harmonization Progress and Pitfalls.” The third plenary on Thursday, May 12 will address two topics: “Integrating C, N, and S: What Does it Mean?” and “Welcoming Unmanned Aircraft Systems into the NAS.”
The plenary sessions are complemented by several parallel sessions in the afternoon on specific ICNS topics. For these technical sessions papers and presentations are requested along the key topical areas listed below.
- CNS System Architectures and Interfaces
- Standards and V&V
- Performance Based Navigation
- Safe and Secure Air Transportation System
- Performance-Based ATM
- Trajectory Based Operations
- Air/Ground Integration
- Global Military Access
- Future Communications
- Surveillance and Situational Awareness
- Unmanned Aircraft Systems in the NAS
- Information Sharing Environment – Network Centric Ops (NCO)
- Improved Environmental Performance
- Aircraft/Airline Operations for NextGen
- Federal Aviation Incentives and/or Mandates
- Integrating Legacy Aircraft into the NAS
- Modeling, Simulation, and Analysis
- Modular ICNS
ICNS 2011 invites exhibits and product demonstration by representatives of CNS-related Industries/Organizations.
Join us as we launch the Second Decade of ICNS!
