Digitalisation and remotisation of operations, digitalisation of communications, reduction in human operational intervention, development of remotely piloted and autogitalisation and remotisation of operations, digitalisation of communications, reduction in humanoperational intervention, development of remotely piloted and automated platforms (i.e. drones, UAVs, HAPS) and operations in new layers of airspace kept mostly unutilised up to now (Very Low-Level (VLL) sky (below 150 metres) and upper sky, i.e. amated platforms(i.e. drones, UAVs, HAPS) and operations in new layers of airspace kept mostly unutilised up to now (Very Low-Level (VLL) sky (below 150 metres) and upper sky, i.e. above 20 km altitude) are some of the expected major evolutions of the aviation sector. Those trendslead to the emergence of new safety and security challenges that innovative solutions will have to tackle to ensure overall aviation safety. Satellite telecommunications can play a fundamental and unique role to offer the secure and reliable connectivity requiredfor safety related communications, with a wide coverage including oceanic areas, at high altitudes where ground-based systems are less or not effective, or to increase network resilience when used as a redundant system to terrestrial networks. The objectives of this Announcement of Opportunity are to foster the development and showcase of innovative applications enabled by satellite telecommunications (and other space assets) in support of aviation safety evolution. Tenderers are invited to propose Demonstration Projects in collaboration with users and stakeholders from the aviation sector.
