FRIEND Prototype - Aviation

The first FRIEND prototype was developed ten years ago for the aviation industry, and it proved the feasibility of the FRIEND concept. Based on the know-how acquired during the development of the first FRIEND prototype, the FRIEND project has been relaunched in 2008 with the aim to provide an innovative and sustainable solution to SWIM in Communities of Interest (i.e., the aviation industry, financial institutes, governmental organizations, etc.).

Based on the requirements and the priorities of European aviation industry and privately owned enterprises, the second prototype will also be developed for the aviation industry. The aviation industry where many autonomous stakeholders are involved and large amounts of data are being processed in real time will be the ideal case study best showing the powerfulness of the FRIEND concept.
