The AISA project organized its first workshop on the 16th of September 2020. During the online event, the consortium presented the draft Concept of Operations for the proposed new ATM Artificial Intelligence Situational Awareness System.

The AISA workshop was repeated in three time slots to ensure better interactivity. The workshop session had more than 50 participants . All the sessions had good discussion sections, questions and comments arrived on several issues.

The workshop was provided by WebEx and several SJU and EUROCONTROL experts were also participating.

All three sessions started with the presentation of the AISA concept of Operation presented by Tomislav Radisic. The presentation took about 45 minutes and followed by the 45 minutes Q&A sessions.

The presentation is available for download in pdf format.
