Press Release Date 22.02.2017

This is Claude Pichavant, Senior Expert ? Communications & Surveillance at AIRBUS, who will be presenting at Aviation Electronics Europe in Munich, Germany on Wednesday 26th April on ‘Aircraft Tracking – Status and Airbus view’.

An extensive career in the field of Civil Airborne communications and surveillance systems with over 30 years? experience on all Airbus aircraft models, Claude has been actively involved in the international standards for commercial aviation, representing Airbus at the ARINC-AEEC-SAE (Aeronautical Radio, Incorporated- Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee- Society of Automotive Engineers), as well as at EUROCAE and RTCA (Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics).

Since 2007, his representation of the air transport industry has enabled him to further develop solid working relationships with Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR); the International Civil Aviation Organization and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) Radio Communication Sector. He has contributed, as an Airframer, to the ATTF (Aircraft Tracking Task Force) which was established in 2014 by the IATA (International Air Transport Association) and supported by the ICAO and wishes to share some of his experience and knowledge at Aviation Electronics Europe.

The loss of flights AF-447 and MH-370 in oceanic airspaces has triggered an industry-wide response to the challenge of tracking aircraft in operation wherever they are in the world. This response includes the definition of the ?Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System? (GADSS) concept defined by the ICAO Member States and the international air transport industry.

The four main components of GADSS are: A/C Tracking under normal conditions, A/C Tracking under abnormal conditions, Autonomous Distress Tracking, and Flight Data Recovery. These components will need the progressive development of solutions for mid and long term. The short term solution(s) for Global Aircraft Tracking will be implemented by the aircraft operators as a first step.

According to expectations regarding forthcoming mandates, implementation of GADSS will have an impact on the industry and more particularly on aircraft design and equipment installations.

This presentation will provide the Aircraft manufacturer?s view of the various potential solutions to the needs expressed in GADSS.
