New: The second intermediate report on IMS activities within COCOTIER project is available and can be downloaded at here (members only). This report covers the period between 12 November 2019 and 12 May 2020.

COCOTIER (COncept de COckpit et Technologies Intégrées En Rupure) is a collaborative and exploratory project on new technologies for future intelligent cockpit in civil aviation operations (2030+). The kick-off meeting took place on December 2, 2019 in Toulouse – France. The project is supported by the French Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) and coordinated by Airbus.

DGAC support: about 17.3 MEuros – Total budget: about 34.6 MEuros.

The project involves 14 industrial and academic partners:

  • Industrial partners: Airbus, Dassault aviation, SAFRAN, Thales, ATR, Factem, OKTAL Synthetic Environment, Ratier Figeac, Vodea and Zodiac Aero Electric.
  • Academic partners: IMS Lab – U-Bordeaux, LAAS-CNRS – Toulouse, LEAD Lab – Toulouse, ONERA (French Aerospace Lab), ENAC (French Civil Aviation University).

I coordinate IMS-lab activities in this project. IMS focuses on new methods for fault-tolerant multi-sensor data fusion for autonomous navigation during the landing approach of a large civil aircraft.

The second plenary meeting (virtual) took place on July 2, 2020.

The next meeting is scheduled for the November 18, 2020.
