For more than 12 years now, Avitronics Research has been active in innovation and sustainable development in the transport sector. Air and surface transport technology, operations, design, regulation, policies are some of our diversified fields of expertise.


As a team of committed colleagues in research, economics, engineering, communication and business, in Avitronics Research, we have created effective and competitive services of high quality results. Avitronics Research has been working hard now to develop innovation related to sustainable development on SMEs. The 21 million micro & SMEs in Europe produce a turnover in excess of 22 billion Euros and have been handling about 90 million employees. While some of the above micro &SMEs will be on the cutting edge of new product development, the vast majority do not have the resources or skills capacity to actively seek commercialisation opportunities that could achieve profitability over time, thus, stimulating economic growth.

Our effort is to 

Mix productively researchers, dissemination experts and commercialization professionals to achieve full exploitation of research results for faster times to market.

Our objectives are to 

•develop “market oriented  approach” proposals for faster times to market as far as technology, products, services and knowledge is concerned.
•Indicate available funding schemes for better investment opportunities
•facilitate productive linkages between research and micro &SMEs  to advance technology transfer

Our aim is to

Improve the micro & SMEs rate to research results exploitation resulting in new product development. European economic recovery places a lot of hopes on micro, small and medium enterprises. We are just there to assist the transformation!

In the competitive environment we are living in, it seems that the most crucial issue is the speed with which new products are brought to the market place and new cost-saving improvements made. The Economy and employment opportunities depend to a great extent on the speed with which scientific and technological advancements are converted into practical and attractive solutions. Innovation – the application of better solutions that meet new requirements, in articulated needs, or existing market needs – requires much more than the ability to turn a new idea into a working product. This is accomplished through more effective products,processes,services,thechnologies and ideas that are readily available to markets, governments and society.


Small firms are playing an ever-increasing role in innovation, driven by changes in technologies and markets. Whilst some spin-offs and high growth firms are having remarkable success, however, the broad bulk of small firms are not capitalising on their advantages. Government policy can boost innovation by improving the environment for entrepreneurship and small firm development and increasing the innovative capacities of enterprises by embedding firms in knowledge flows; developing entrepreneurship skills; and social entrepreneurship. In short, creating a dynamic, self-sustaining culture of innovation.




Dissemination is the act of communication. But disseminating scientific and technical knowledge requires expertise from a wide range of scientific and technological activities. For this very apparent reason our Team consists of:

The Ring model





Dissemination is an important component of the research process. Dissemination is about the communication of innovation. This is a planned and systematic diffusion process.. Effective communication is an important aspect of dissemination. However, because the audience may be heterogeneous, dissemination has to meet the various requirements of different users. There are many barriers to effective communication between researchers and users. These include: career structures, institutional barriers, ownership issues, barriers relating to the protracted process of publishing in academic journals, technical barriers and problems related to secrecy and lack of trust. Enhancing dialogue between researchers and users, developing new contacts and networks, the creation of Research Liaison Officers and developing effective dissemination strategies can bridge the communication gap. It is argued that researchers have a duty to share new knowledge with a wider audience including the general public. Effective dissemination requires an active and systematic approach which is adequately resourced throughout. 


By developing the full potential of a project’s results we create a virtuous cycle of influence making results more sustainable, maximising their impact, optimising investment, improving systems, pooling knowledge to avoid overlap of effort, and then feeding back into policy-making bodies.

Dissemination Model




Existing technologies, markets, the players in the market and their strategies are analysed , as well the potential needs of clients and their expectations are thoroughly understood. Additionally competing and/or alternative projects are analysed. Standards are essential for economic growth and social progress. Αppropriate standards can facilitate the introduction of new products to markets, enable interoperability between new and existing products, services and processes,
enhance protection of users, give consumers confidence in innovations and serve as an alternative route to disseminate research results.
Standardisation methods can help business by facilitating access to markets , achieving measurable benefits, minimising business costs and risks , streamlining internal processes and improving communication. Standardisation is the key to a successful research project. It entails a sharp analysis of all possible scenarios and of strategies required to achieve the projects’ objectives.
The functions of market research are fundamental to unlocking a market’s true potential by researching the main characteristics of a market (usages, players, strategies, issues, etc, …) and by also specifying success and risk factors. It is important to test the project’s results in the real world and with the target audience: developers, integrators, buyers, distributors, decision-makers, end-users, the press, … and validate them through the establishment and management of User Group; this activity is performed by Institute specialists through the set up and management of an End Users Group for testing and validation. The market and business specialists of the Institute support the project consortium in the definition of business models for innovative services and technologies, and in the drafting of the exploitation plan for the project results. 

Exploitation Model





Commercialization is the process of introducing a new product, service or method into the market.. The actual launch of a new product is the final stage of new product development and the one where the most investment goes for advertising, sales promotion, and other marketing efforts. Proposed commercialization of a product-service-knowledge has to previously answer the following questions:


Vendor’s potential hierarchy-Further improvement of proposed product, service or knowledge-Market conditions


Single location-several regions-national or international market


The target group

HOW?  Capital- Operational capacities and Managerial capability.

The above 4 questions ‘3W&H’, are extremely vital for the succefull launce of a product, service or knowledge. This is the reason for the low absorption of research results by the market. Our Research has not been in line with market structure. If we could only shape up our research aims to be to some extent in line with at least European Market, then research results will achieve faster times to market. 

This is how our team assists research proposals. Place them in line with future market requirements or opportunities.

Airports & Security

Airports are literally the hubs connecting people and goods. Most airports are equipped with large shopping centres , hotels and conference centres. Airports increasingly have become industrial and commercial enterprises where aircrafts happen to take-off and Airports connecting people and goods. Disruption of transportation systems. Human resources must be the major contributor to the current level of security at the airport. In short, airports have become the heart of the very infrastructure of the modern, civil knowledge-based society, embodying the principles of free flow of people and goods.

The modern society can be disrupted when airports are forced to stop operating. This threat is taken very seriously by all stakeholders involved, ranging from policy makers to airport management, and law enforcement agencies.

The global air transport system needs to remain dependable and extremely safe thus eliminating and mitigating threats to air traffic. 
Human Factors research has clearly shown that the bottleneck in security is not the ability to record an “event”, but to diagnose and interpret it in real-time.
