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 European Research Establishments in Aeronautics (EREA) invited the DLR (project partner of GAMMA) to join the ad-hoc working group “Security in Aviation”. This group will perform a study as an input for FP9. Another white paper more focusing on technical implementation will be written during the work of this group, additionally. The request for […]
The GAMMA project was present at the final workshop of the project ARIEL (Air Traffic Resilience). The German Aerospace Center (DLR) as representative of GAMMA was invited to speak during a plenary talk, where the different challenges in the area of ATM Security were discussed. With this action ATM Security expertise from the GAMMA perspective […]
On 17th November 2016 a meeting was organized with several representatives from EDA in their Brussels premises to illustrate progress of the GAMMA project.
