Digitalization in aviation with d-NOTAM

The d-NOTAM project started on 01.12.2020. It is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure within the scope of the funding guideline Modernity Fund (“mFUND”).

The aim of the project is to develop software assistance using the available basic data of the aeronautical infrastructure in order to completely digitize the NOTAM process. The NOTAMs can be processed automatically and displayed in a pilot’s “navigation device” (Electronic Flight Bag – EFB). This reduces not only the risk of missing important NOTAMs, but also the pilot’s workload in flight planning to a considerable extent.

HFC takes over the role of the project coordinator. Furthermore, HFC will conduct the requirements analysis and will develop a system concept together with the partners. In an interdisciplinary team the user interface will be developed under consideration of human factors. In a final field study, the software will be evaluated together with the partners of the consortium.
