Security Engineering for Lifelong Evolvable Systems

Visiting ENAV's ATM Experimental Center

During this week (9th and 10th of Sep.) Deep Blue (DBL) organized a workshop about the Air Traffic Management (ATM) case study. The primary goal of the workshop was to present the case study in details to the other partners, and finalize the scenarios which will be studied and assessed later on in the project. As part of the workshop, the participants visited ENAV SpA, the Italian company for Air Navigation Services, CNS/ATM Experimental Center (ECEC).

Here ENAV's experts explained the setup of a Controller Working Position (CWP) and how the whole system (including hardware, software, procedures and organizational roles) will change with the introduction of the Queue managers. After a short presentation, a live demo was showed with similar equipments that are used nowadays in real Area Control Centers (ACC). Furthermore, the SecureChange participants could try out the system acting as a real controller. Finally, ENAV staff answered questions about the security aspects of the possible changes introduced in the system by the queue managers, and helped to direct the future work of the project.

Thanks for ENAV and DBL for this insightful event!
