Global ATM Security Management Project
GAMMA is a project worth around fifteen million Euros, co-financed by the Research Executive Agency of the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project stems from the growing need to address new air traffic management threats and vulnerabilities due, for instance, to the increased reliance on distributed enterprise computing and the automated flow of information across a ground and airborne network.
The goal of the GAMMA project is to develop solutions to emerging air traffic management vulnerabilities backed up by practical proposals for the implementation of these solutions. The project will also consider the new scenarios created by the Single European Sky programme.
The GAMMA project was presented at the EUROCAE 2016 Symposium which was held in Vienna on 28 and 29 April 2016. Claudio Porretti from LEONARDO-FINMECCANICA gave a presentation focussing on the GAMMA concept and its instantiation through the Security Management Platform. The 2016 Symposium was held in a distinctive format from previous editions, focussing not […]
A presentation on the GAMMA Security Management Platform was given by Claudio Porretti from LEONARDO-FINMECCANICA at the Cyber Security Seminar organised by the NATO/EUROCONTROL ATM Security Coordinating Group (NEASCOG) on 9 and 10 June 2016. The seminar was intended to provide an overview of current activities, future plans and main concerns across aviation stakeholders and […]
On the 12th of May GAMMA joined the ECOSSIAN FP7 project in a dedicated meeting with their Advisory board. GAMMA and ECOSSIAN have joined forces in the recognition that both projects have come up with remarkably similar proposals for tacking the challenges of security at a European Level. While the objective of GAMMA is to […]
GAMMA will be presented at the forthcoming EUROCAE Symposium which will be held in Vienna on 28th and 29th April 2016. A specific GAMMA presentation will be delivered by Claudio Porretti from FINMECCANICA, representing GAMMA, during the session on Cyber security – a challenge for today’s Aviation security. This important event will provide an opportunity […]
On 23rd March 2016 GAMMA participated to the Workshop on ‘ATM Security and Cybersecurity organised by the EUROCONTROL Agency Research Team (ART). ART advises EUROCONTROL on all aspects related to research and development and represents external stakeholders from ANSP, academia and research centres, SMEs and industry. The ATM Security and Cybersecurity Workshop was part of […]
From 1 January 2016, the activities of Selex ES have merged into the new Finmeccanica, operating as One Company, focusing on its core business of Aerospace, Defence and Security. The coordinator of the GAMMA project is therefore now Finmeccanica, while the working team remains the same.
The GAMMA project has been asked to participate to Eurocae WG 72 contributing to a new EUROCAE directive related to aircraft and ground security Items, ED 205 “Security Accreditation of ATM Systems”. EUROCAE WG-72 “Aeronautical Systems Security” is tasked to develop guidelines to address security concerns for aeronautical systems in order to ensure safe, secure […]
The GAMMA project was present at the SESAR Innovation Days conference which was held at the start of December 2015 in Bologna. The project was successfully disseminated to a wide audience through a poster which provided an overview of the GAMMA concept and its validation with special focus on the Security Management Platform (SMP) which […]
In occasion of the Milipol’2015 exhibition, held in Paris (France) last November 2015, RNC Avionics promoted GAMMA project in general as well as the latest results reached. GAMMA is an EU FP7 project concerned with the development, optimisation and validation of the state-of-the-art solution for future ATM systems. A number of interesting and useful comments […]
