Subject: IRIS SatCom Datalink on the road to certification
Speaker: Pierre Lahourcade, Chief Strategy and Development Officer - ESSP

Iris is a program that has been developed by the European Space Agency (ESA) to enable real-time collaboration between pilots, air traffic controllers and an airline’s operation center using cost-effective, secure and highly resilient datalink communications.

The Iris Satellite Communication (SatCom) Program is a complementary technology to improve datalink Quality of Service and performances to meet the 2030’s needs and implement ADS-C EPP in compliance with the upcoming CP1 regulation, supporting ATM digitalization and decarbonization. It utilizes a multi-link solution to improve the existing infrastructure’s performance, capacity, safety, security, coverage and resilience. It will enable the development of new usages and enhanced services such as trajectory-based operations and will support the practice of datalink in lower airspace and oceanic areas.

Based on the Inmarsat Swift Broadband-Safety (SB-S) operational infrastructure, ESSP is currently implementing the service provision in the ESA IRIS IOC Phase 3. This service and its performance are based on an available and mature technology which will be presented this spring 2023 through pre-commercial flights supporting the certification of the service.
