AI Situational Awareness Foundation for Advancing Automation

Final AISA Newsletter
The final AISA newsletter summarises the main results of the project. More information is available on our website: and on our LinkedIn page.

AISA Dissemination and Communication Actions

AISA project partners (Tomislav Radisic, Ruth Hausler, Ivan Tukaric) delivered two presentations at the EASN Conference in October in Barcelona. The presentations were in a joint session with other AI related SESAR projects, therefore it enabled interactive communication with experts in the field. You can find more information on the other dissemination and communication activities at the website and on our LinkedIn page.

WP2 – Concept of Operations

Within the workpackage “Concept of Operations” two deliverables were written: the Concept of Operations for AI Situational Awareness and the Requirements for automation of monitoring tasks via AI SA. The CONOPS describes the expected changes between the current concept of operations, future concepts which do not consider human-machine distributed situational awareness, and the proposed concept which includes the AI into the team situational awareness. The Requirements deliverable shows which monitoring tasks exist, which of them can be automated in different scenarios what are the related requirements.

WP3 - Development of ML modules

The objective of the WP 3 was to develop state-of-the-art machine learning modules which were used as inputs into the knowledge graph system. The related documents are the following:

  • 4D trajectory prediction module
  • Conflict Detection Module
  • Air traffic complexity estimation module

WP4 - AI Situational Awareness System

In this WP the concept to develop the AI situational awareness system based on the domain-specific knowledge graph and rule-based knowledge was shown, including the description of the low-scale prototype used in the experiments. The deliverables developed in this workpackage are:

  • Proof-of-concept KG system
  • KG-Prolog Mapper
  • Populated knowledge graph

WP5 – Concept Assessment

The objective of this workpackage was to assess the concept as defined in WP 2 and developed in WP3 and WP4. Situational awareness was compared between AI and ATCO, impact of Human-AI Team situation awareness on related human performance was evaluated and a risk assessment was performed.

AISA communication material

The project has delivered its final brochure, available for download at the website in the communications section. Also the project has developed a video, summarising the main developments with visual support. The video is accessible at the website and also on YouTube.

AISA Dissemination materials

We would like to highlight that all the technical deliverables are public and can be found at our website at the dissemination section. Besides several scientific publications were written by our team and they are also available at the same page. It is noteworthy to mention that more publications are on the way, so please follow our LinkedIn page if you wish to be notified on further news on the project.

Let’s exploit AISA together!

The AISA team is interested to exploit the results of the project with other researchers, industrial partners in the frame of subsequent activities. Please contact us if you are interested in discussing potential opportunities in the field of introduction of artificial intelligence in ATM. Please also note that members of AISA team will be present at the SESAR Innovation Days (5-8 December, Budapest). Project partners can be found at the AISA poster and also, our coordinator, Tomislav Radisic will be a member of the panel discussion on AI issues on the 8th of December.

In case of questions, issues, please write to Andrej Kocsis, AISA communication and dissemination manager:
