Collins Aerospace, a business under Raytheon Technologies, has been chosen to contribute to eight projects within the European Union’s SESAR 3 Joint Undertaking. The SESAR 3 JU, formed by collaboration between European private and public partners, strives to expedite the implementation of the Digital European Sky by developing innovative technologies to regulate conventional aircraft, drones, air taxis, and high-altitude vehicles.

As part of the initiative, Collins will collaborate with various stakeholders in the air traffic management industry, including air navigation service providers, airlines, aircraft original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), system providers, and academic institutions. Together, they will drive advancements in crucial technology domains such as connectivity, U-space, trajectory-based operations, airport solutions, autonomy, and data services. Collins will take the lead on the JARVIS (Just A Rather Very Intelligent System) project, which aims to utilize artificial intelligence-based technologies to automate flight deck and control tower operations, thereby reducing workload for pilots and operators and improving safety and security.

Mauro Atalla, senior vice president of Engineering & Technology for Collins, expressed confidence in their extensive expertise in avionics and air traffic management. He highlighted their commitment to collaborating with industry partners under the EU’s SESAR 3 JU to shape the future of European airspace.
