Four experienced European partners join forces in AUDIO

Contributing to the modernisation of the European and global ATM system and meeting tomorrow’s passenger needs.

AUDIO is coordinated by DLR, which provides ground, flight plan, and route information collected by the Airport Research and Innovation Facility (ARIF) in Hamburg, Germany.

Deutsche Lufthansa adapts the existing Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) solutions to the new functionalities, oversees the demonstration at Hamburg Airport, and evaluates the functionalities under real-life conditions.

Norway-based SINTEF AS provides its optimisation library, validated in SESAR, to generate the optimised surface routings to be used for the demonstration.

European management consultancy ARTTIC leads the dissemination activities, including production of communication materials and workshop organisation, to maximise the impact of project results.
