Security of Aircraft in the Future European Environment

Objectives

SAFEE is a large integrated project designed to restore full confidence in the air transport industry. The overall vision for SAFEE is the construction of an advanced aircraft security system designed to operate during on-board terrorist threat scenarios. The main goal of this system is to ensure a full secure flight from departure to arrival destination whatever the identified threats.

The project's baseline is the assumption that upstream identification control and airport specific security measures have all been completed. The project is focussed on the implementation of a wide spectrum of threat sensing systems, and the corresponding response actions against physical person(s) or electronic intruders. One of the key aspects of the project is an integrated information management system underpinned by a secure communication system.

Approach

For reaching the objectives described previously SAFEE has 5 key activities named sub-projects (SP):
