From March 25 to April 3, 2009, CS attends the 2nd phase of Air Traffic Management VoIP Plugtests events organized by ETSI in Sophia Antipolis, France


This Plugtests will reinforce ATM VoIP interoperability by enabling the identification of areas for improvements, by detecting errors and ambiguities within the current draft standards at the earliest stage, and finally speeds up the process of providing ATM VoIP products to the market in order to contribute to the implementation of the future European ATM system defined in the framework of SESAR.


From March 25 to April 3, 2009, CS attends the 2nd phase of Air Traffic Management VoIP Plugtests events organized by ETSI in Sophia Antipolis, France
Fully consistent with the development phase of SESAR, CS is actively involved in the tests conducted as part of the ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) in the presence of the some major European industrial VCS suppliers and several ANSPs, including the Federal Aviation Authority.

CS was a pioneer company for the use Voice over of IP technology for radio communications for air traffic control. CS has developed innovative solutions combining the adequacy with operational requirements, cost-benefit analysis, resilience and data security inherent in mission-critical systems for defense and security. 

Member of EUROCAE WG 67 "VoIP Technology for ATM", CS was actively committed to the development of European norms and standards based on the experience of its past deployment achievements of VCS (Voice Communication Systems) using VoIP technology for communications. CS has provided leadership of sub-group dedicated to the definition of interoperability standards, with the participation of major European VCS and radio T/R equipments suppliers. The publication of documents Eurocae will be marked a major milestone in the way towards a Single European Sky. 

In support of these projects, CS participates upstream in developing technical standards and contributes to the committees of the international bodies concerned, in particular, for the introduction of IP technologies in aviation navigation (Single European sky, SESAR Programme), for embedded mission-critical software in aeronautics, and for short-range hyper-frequency links defined by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).
