Alternative Timing and Synchronisation Technologies for Aviation Workshop

EUROCONTROL is hosting a workshop organised by Telespazio VEGA on the topic of alternative timing and synchronisation technologies for aviation.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together operational, technology-providing and regulatory stakeholders to discuss use-cases and future need for accuracy and reliability of timing and synchronisation across both air and ground-based systems and operations in the commercial aviation domain.

The workshop is part of a Telespazio VEGA - Chronos Technology project performed under the ESA NAVISP programme. The focus of the project is to assess timing and synchronisation concepts that are complementary to GNSS-based solutions.


The workshop will feature:

  • briefings from EUROCONTROL senior experts and service providers highlighting the present and future of timing and synchronisation for Aviation;
  • key updates from commercial solution providers building innovative technologies;
  • discussions on diverse topics including State of Art time measurement, timing performance requirements for aviation and aviation use case study analysis among others;
  • engaging sessions with senior experts and industry leaders from timing and synchronisation domain.

Participating stakeholders already include EUROCONTROL, ESA, NATS, SERCO, Iridium, Leonardo, Royal Observatory of Belgium, Teledyne e2v, TFS and more to follow.


Participants will have an excellent opportunity for exchanging information and networking across the aviation operational domain and T&S solution providers.

The workshop will be of interest to stakeholder groups from Aviation, Avionics, Timing, GNSS, Satellite Communication Industries, Aviation Navigation Service Providers, and regulatory organisations.
