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.
