Reliable, quantum-safe, and future-proof connectivity
Each year, air transportation directly and indirectly contributes trillions of dollars to the global economy. According to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), global air traffic has doubled every 15 years since 1970s and will continue to do so for the decades to come. ATM plans must support the projected air traffic increase, including the addition of future unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), while meeting superfluous challenges in safety, security, environmental impact, operational and cost efficiency.
Safe and efficient air traffic services rely on the wide area network (WAN) backbone and access connectivity to deliver the main functions in ATM communication, navigation and surveillance (CNS). The CNS functions need application-specific connectivity and redundant networking plans amongst many air traffic control (ATC) CNS networks at diverse and remote geographical locations.
While many IT communication needs in the aviation industry can be met by commercial off-the-shelf equipment, only mission-critical communication systems such as Hitachi Energy solutions are built from ground up to meet ATM regulation-compliant and application-specific communication needs. Our communications portfolio guarantees compliance and delivery of service requirements as set by ATM standards from ICAO, EUROCAE and others.
