The AICHAIN a research project funded under SESAR 2020 Exploratory Research.  The goal of AICHAIN is to enhance air traffic management (ATM) system by articulating an advanced privacy-preserving federated learning architecture in which neither the training data nor the training model need to be exposed. This will be possible thanks to the innovative combination of two emerging technologies: Federated Machine Learning (FedML) and Blockchain technologies.

AICHAIN is conducted by a consortium composed by SITA EWAS APPLICATION SERVICES S.L. (Coordinator), Nommon Solutions and Technologies, Scaleout Systems, Swiss International Air Lines and EUROCONTROL.

The project started on 1 July 2020 and will run for 30 months.
