Shaping policy, legislation and regulation in European Air Traffic Management

The European Air Traffic Management system currently handles around 26,000 flights daily, with ultimate responsibility for the lives of almost 800 million passengers and crew every year. 

Professor Chris Johnson’s research has directly influenced policy, legislation and regulation across Europe’s air traffic control, including the current guidelines on software development in Air Traffic Management, which were incorporated into European law in 2008.

He has led the way in harmonising computer infrastructure standards across different agencies throughout the EU, building defences against cyber-attacks and playing a vital role in improving passenger safety.
