Airbus announced its participation in a Finnish governmental-funded pioneer research program called Priority, launched in August. The two-year program aims to find answers to research questions in the fields of 5G security, artificial intelligence (AI), rural area coverage and quality of service in hybrid networks, improving critical communications and situational awareness for public-safety users.

The program consortium, chaired by Airbus, is composed of about 20 key stakeholders from the Finnish public-safety community, including research organizations, enterprises, user organizations and a mobile operator.

Airbus will focus research on enhanced critical communications services, network analytics, and machine learning in the field of public safety, with emphasis on AI use. This includes automatic security assistance, crowd anomaly detection and data analytics.

“The market is witnessing a major shift in public-safety communications and operations due to technological evolution, as well as new environmental and criminal threats,” said Tapio Savunen, strategic marketing director for Secure Land Communications at Airbus and chairman of the Priority program steering group. “In the future, AI will be essential for our customers from public-safety organizations, both to improve the efficiency of mission-critical operations, and the safety and security of societies.”
