SafeClouds.eu, a H2020 big data for safety project, coordinated by Innaxis, kicked off earlier this month.
Developing the future of a safe and growing aviation business, whilst also reassuring the travelling public that it is safe to fly, is a major vision for both EU and national aviation policies, however:
What role do policy makers play?
What are the recent, implemented safety measures?
Who is guiding the safety topics within aviation research?
EASA, the European Commission, the Advisory Council of Aviation Research & Innovation in Europe (ACARE), and the EU’s OPTICS Project organised a three day event in Cologne (12-14 April) in order to provide answers to these types of imperative questions, and furthermore define the way forward to ensure continued aviation safety in Europe. The event had a number of presentations and workshops within several aviation safety areas.
Two Innaxis’ team members David Perez (email@example.com) and Hector Ureta (firstname.lastname@example.org) attended the interesting event and took part in several of the workshops, explaining how can Data Science and BIG data can boost aviation safety. Hector also presented some of the latest data science techniques and tools in safety research, based on SESAR-COMPASS project, during the third day of the event.
The presentation, “Data science and data mining techniques to improve aviation safety: features, patterns and precursors”, is available online in this link.
If you’d like further information about data science in aviation, big data or aviation safety research completed by Innaxis, please feel free to contact Innaxis team (email@example.com).

Safety is a critical aspect of air traffic management and it receives significant attention from the research community. This criticality leads to lower innovation in different safety aspects, ensuring that only well-known and established procedures and technologies are applied. In this context, new ways to innovate in safety assessment techniques could not only provoke a significant change in the safety levels but also enable technologies and procedures through easier and more straightforward safety analysis.
Innaxis is a firm believer in the potential of complex networks analysis and the power of Data Science techniques. We will present the paper Synchronization Likelihood in Aircraft Trajectories in the next USA/Europe Air Traffic Management R&D Seminar, held from June 10 to 13, 2013 in Chicago. We strongly believe these techniques will set the foundation for new ways of analysing safety levels in different contexts; from providing new techniques and correctly evaluating the safety levels of large airspace blocks to the actual development of predictive analytics that would assist in the implementation of new automation technologies.
Please attend Massimiliano Zanin’s presentation of his paper if you are attending the Seminar and do not hesitate to contact him if this area is of interest to you. Massimiliano is reachable on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Federal Aviation Administration and the EUROCONTROL Organization will host the Tenth USA/Europe Seminar on ATM R&D June 10-13, 2013 in Chicago, IL, USA.
