Inmarsat, ESA complete first test flights for Iris Precursor

Tuesday 20 December 2016 | 16:42 CET | News
Inmarsat successfully completed the first flight trials for Iris Precursor, a project whose aim is to enhance and modernise air traffic management over European airspace. Iris Precursor focuses on the development and deployment of secure satellite-based data link communications to significantly optimise European airspace capacity, leading to overall reductions in flight times, fuel burn and CO2 emissions. Iris Precursor aims to complement existing terrestrial data link communications (VDL2), which are expected to reach capacity in the near future.
