Austrian Competences in Aeronautics Technology

University of Salzburg - Computer Sciences Institute

The Institute of Computer Sciences is recognised as a competence centre for aviation with regard to the development of sophisticated stochastic simulations techniques and for advanced algorithms in digital communications protocol design. This allows the simulation of today‘s and future European and worldwide air traffic and data communications quite accurately. The Institute is involved with all major institutions and industry in the area of aviation.

Technologies and competences

In the area of aviation, the Institute focuses on the development and performance evaluation of future digital aeronautical communication systems (e.g. VDLM2, AeroMACS, L-DACS, SatCom), future air traffic and data simulation, future airport operations, 4D-trajectory concepts, weather impact on ATM/ATC, wind-optimised routes and aircraft noise evaluations.
