爱游戏电竞 and its partners in the £67million 数字航空研究与技术中心 (DARTeC) will today announce the five primary research challenges that the centre will tackle when it opens in early 2020.

在白皮书中发起挑战, 题为“应对数码航空挑战”, the partnership behind DARTeC will set out how they will aim to unlock the potential of digital aviation for the UK and global aviation industry. 

With the pace of air travel growth already causing strains across the sector and UK passenger numbers expected to increase by 49% by 2050, solutions other than expansion of airport capacity and ground 基础设施 need to be found. 

数字 aviation has often been cited as being the next significant business transformation event of the sector and one which can support the industry towards delivering greater customer satisfaction while addressing efficiency, 成本和容量问题. 

然而, 虽然数字航空的许多挑战是可以单独理解的, there are very few opportunities to address them simultaneously within a collaborative research and technology environment. DARTeC will offer that opportunity by creating a ‘research eco-system’ underpinned by 克兰菲尔德’s global research airport and the University’s newly-opened autonomous vehicle research facility.

Funding for DARTeC is being provided by a consortium of leading aerospace and aviation companies including Thales, 萨博, 帝王飞机工程有限公司, 以及爱游戏电竞. 该中心还受益于15英镑.英国研究伙伴投资基金(UKRPIF)提供的500万美元资金, 由英国研究中心领导的计划.

Launching DARTeC’s five research priorities at the Farnborough 国际 Show, 教授格雷厄姆·布雷斯韦特, 爱游戏电竞交通系统项目负责人和主任, said: “Aviation is a key sector for the UK economy contributing £52 billion to UK GDP but the sector’s present rate of growth is simply not sustainable. 

“We need new digital solutions to tackle the challenges of over-capacity in both airports and airspace, we need to create passenger experiences more fitting of the 21st century and we need to create more sustainable air travel. 与合作伙伴合作, DARTeC will greatly advance the application of innovative technologies within the air 运输 sector and will unlock the potential of digital aviation.”

Addressing the digital aviation challenge, DARTeC’s five primary research areas will be:

  • Connected systems – developing digital systems that will operate at speeds that the current Aircraft C通讯寻址及报告系统(ACARS) and the Aircraft Condition Monitoring System (ACMS) are not capable of producing.
  • Unmanned traffic management – developing airspace management solutions that will bring higher levels of system resilience, safety and security while adapting to competition from UAVs to operate in the same airspace.
  • 无缝乘客体验-开发更个性化, intuitive and less stressful passenger experience by using digital integrated technology to examine challenges such as unified security, 取消三个等候区, 优化旅客流量和行李分离.
  • Distributed airport and airspace management - developing the next generation of air traffic control in an environment of steadily increasing air traffic density and ‘on-demand’ requests.
  • Conscious aircraft – developing technology and systems that would allow aircraft to monitor its current health, 使它能够可靠地预测部件和系统的使用寿命, 同时自动调整以优化它们剩余的生命.
