Leveraging Automation Through Artificial Intelligence, Digital NOTAM, and SWIM
Frequentis Aviation Arena 11.20 - 11.40
Speaker: Ulrich Kaage, Frequentis Comsoft

As aeronautical information is a foundation for a large variety of automation tasks, the full aeronautical data chain of airports, ANSPs, data integrators, and airlines benefit from new innovative approaches and concepts. Reducing manual work and providing necessary scalability for future traffic growth is at the core of planned or already achieved improvements. This presentation explores the benefits of artificial intelligence, digital NOTAM, and SWIM in the light of traffic management challenges as introduced by the increase of manned and unmanned air traffic.
