(Established 2014-06; Terminated 2016-02)
ITU-T Focus Group on Aviation Applications of Cloud Computing for Flight Data Monitoring – FG AC – was established by the ITU-T Telecommunication Standardization Advisory Group (TSAG) in June 2014 in response to a special meeting on Global Flight Tracking of Aircraft organized by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), and an Expert Dialogue on Real-time Monitoring of Flight Data, facilitated by ITU.
The objective of FG AC was to explore how information and communication technologies (ICTs), including cloud computing and big data analytics, can support aviation applications, such as real-time monitoring of flight data, and to identify the requirements for related ICT/telecommunication standards.
FG AC held five face-to-face meetings in the period from December 2014 to December 2015. TSAG endorsed the four Deliverables of the Focus Group in February 2016. The Deliverables are structured as follows:
- Deliverable 1 - Existing and Emerging Technologies of Cloud Computing and Data Analytics [PDF/DOC]
- Deliverable 2/3 - Use Cases and Requirements [PDF/DOC]
- Deliverable 4 - Avionics and Aviation Communications Systems [PDF/DOC]
- Deliverable 5 - Key findings, recommendations for next steps and future work [PDF/DOC]
