The International Air Transport Association (IATA) which represents 260 airlines that are responsible for 83% of the world’s passenger and freight traffic - has signed an agreement with Tel Aviv University under which a new joint center for innovation in aviation will be established in order to develop technologies to protect airline reservations systems, authentication for security purposes, and financial systems, as well as to develop ways to run airlines more efficiently using big data and advanced intelligence.

 

The first-of-its-kind collaboration establishes a joint centre for innovation in aviation based at the university's Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Centre (ICRC). IATA and Tel Aviv University will promote research and development in areas including big-data analysis, cyber-security, authentication for security purposes, and safety and security checks relevant to the field of international flight.

 

Five cyber research centers have opened in Israeli universities in the last two years, but ICRC is the only one that is interdisciplinary.
