The Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) and the European Organisation for Civil Aviation Equipment (EUROCAE) have agreed to work together on developing aviation industry standards, with a particular focus on standards for air traffic management and to address issues such as the safe integration of UAS in all types of airspace and cyber-security.
CANSO will join the EUROCAE Working Group on Aeronautical Systems Security. With the move to network-centric aeronautical information management and an increasingly interconnected aviation system, the need for robust security has never been greater. The working group will develop aeronautical system security guidelines; specifying security objectives and addressing airborne systems and their interface with ground systems. CANSO will also join the Working Group on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). With the rapid increase in UAS or drones the working group will focus mainly on the interface between the remote pilot station (RPS) and the responsible air traffic controller and will also address the information integration between ATM and UAS traffic management (UTM). CANSO will join other working groups in the future.
