The ARTES Satellite Communication for Air Traffic Management element, or Iris, aims to supply a validated satellite-based communication solution for the European Air Traffic Management System. It is implemented in close collaboration with the Single European Sky Air Traffic Management Research (SESAR) Programme launched in 2006 by EUROCONTROL and the European Community. Iris is part of the Europeans Space Agency's Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems (ARTES) programme. It aims to make aviation safer by developing a new satellite-based air–ground communication system for Air Traffic Management (ATM). Iris will provide the satellite communications technology for this programme.
