In support of the Agency’s activities aiming at facilitating the free movement of goods, persons and services (one of the cornerstones of the EU single market) and promoting the cost-efficient application of regulations, EUROCAE has been contracted with the provision of expertise and develop studies. These studies are aimed to support the understanding of complex issues and development of technical standards and technology.
The reports published cover the following topics:
- Analysis of TCAS II use on RPAS within European environment (SC 2012-005)
The objective of the study is to document, and to propose an approach to address, the issues that could arise from fitting TCAS II to RPAS in Europe.
- Analysis of the evolution of air/ground communication (SC 2012-006)
This study provides some preliminary ideas on how the regulatory framework should evolve to cope with the wide evolutions of the tele-communication domain.
- Analysis of differences between amendments - ICAO Annex 10, Volume IV (SC 2016-001)
This study assists in revising Regulation (EU) N° 1207/2011 on surveillance performance and interoperability (SPI regulation) by providing the link between the evolutions of ICAO Annex 10 (i.e. amendments 77, 85 and 89) regarding Mode S surveillance system.
- Cooperative surveillance DAPs/Registers (SC 2016-002)
This study assists in revising Regulation (EU) N° 1207/2011 on surveillance performance and interoperability (SPI regulation) by a.) comparing the functional capabilities associated with the ELS/EHS and ADS-B Mode S capabilities, and b.) consolidating the list of parameters, selected from the essential and complementary ones, that must be provided to get the expected level of improvements in the surveillance chain.
- ATN/OSI and ATN/IPS comparison (SC 2016-003)
This study analyses and compares the two potential technology options for the architecture of the air/ground mobile safety data communications system.
