The remaining 3,5% is the budget of non-nuclear actions of the Joint Research Centre.The Cooperation programme is made of 10 Themes as illustrated on the slide.The Theme Transport (including Aeronautics) has a budget of 4160 million € (12,8%).The Theme Transport has the third largest budget of the programme, after Information and Communication (9050 million €: 27,9%) and Health (6100 million €: 18,8%).This budget is allocated for the seven years of duration of FP7.I would like to recall that the budget allocated to Transport under FP6 was 1850 million euros. So there is a Transport research budget increase of 60%, if one considers that the duration of the present FP is 7 years. This increase takes account of the enlargement from 15 to 27.DG INFSODG ENER / DG R&I

(IAI)The 4DCo-GC project aims at exploring the concept of "4D Contract guidance and control of the aircraft" as a step change in air transport operations by providing a more radical and environmentally efficient solution for the management of the airspace. Scientific objectives of 4DCo-GC are to: - model 4D contract concepts (strategic, tactical and emergency levels) - develop algorithms (strategic, tactical planning), process and functions (failure management, emergency separation, ) needed to use 4D contacts - define and develop a global tool architecture to demonstrate and analyse the key operating advantages of the 4D contract concept, including the man's role - elaborate an assessment methodology and metrics to qualify and quantify 4D contract characteristics and performances for the control and guidance of aircraft - perform a real time assessment of 4D contract concepts of operations - organize dissemination and demonstration workshops in from of an external audience - derive from a qualification and quantification work, recommendations for future 4DT system development. 4DCo-GC brings together the expertise of 13 European and associated partners coming from 7 countries, for a total budget of 5.7 M and a total requested funding of 4.1 M. This 36 months duration programme of work is built on the results of several past EU programmes and projects. Main results expected out of 4DCo-GC project are technological components (software/hardware/architectures) and recommendations for future 4D trajectories guidance and control systems, addressing several priorities of ACARE. Regarding the short/middle-term expected evolutions of the European air transport system, 4DCo-GC is fully aligned with the orientation of SESAR, and particularly the so-called "ATM Target Concept".

The project introduces the innovative concept of event-driven campaigns with handheld devices, potentially supported by an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).AIROBOTS Technology for UASThe main objective of the AIRobots platform design process is to develop aerial prototypes which meet basic engineering principles in terms of expandability and flexibility.ARCAS ApplicationConstructionThe ARCAS project proposes the development and experimental validation of the first cooperative free-flying robot system (UAS) for assembly and structure construction.EC-SAFEMOBIL Technology for UASThis project addresses the development of new estimation/prediction and cooperative control methodologies and their practical application to highly mobile entities such as unmanned aerial systems. The main emphasis of EC-SAFEMOBIL is placed on the preservation of safety and reliability while optimising performance, taking into account uncertainties of sensor data and unreliability of wireless data transmission links. KARYON Technology for UASKARYON addresses the problem of finding robust cruising strategies for autonomous mobile systems as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or smart cars. They are based on information from other vehicles, an estimation of the global system state, and how confident one is about this estimation.SKYMEDIA ApplicationMulti-mediaThe objective of the SkyMedia project is to explore, design, and demonstrate a novel multimedia end-to-end architecture that can provide unique immersive media experiences to audiences during live events. SkyMedia deploys an UAV-based platform as part of its content capturing infrastructure that has a twofold role: first to guarantee an unobtrusive and silent video/image capturing and second to effectively collect and aggregate data from ground sensors.
