Air traffic management performance study to benefit from EU co-funding

- Brussels, Belgium

The European Union is set to co-finance with over €6.6 million from the TEN-T Programme a study looking at methodologies to support faster flight data processing for a more effective air traffic management (ATM) in Europe.

The study, selected for funding under the 2012 TEN-T Multi-Annual Programme, aims to increase the safety, capacity, flight efficiency and cost effectiveness of European air traffic management by accelerating the development and implementation of advanced Flight Data Processing (FDP) capabilities. 

It will develop the key elements of the future European FDP infrastructure and support the interoperability of competing platforms, pursuing the implementation of a network and a data model for the interoperability of air traffic management systems in accordance with the requirements of the Single European Sky legislation. The involved partners are the national Air Navigation Service Providers of Spain, Austria, Germany, France, ENAV Italy, Ireland, Sweden and the UK.

The study is expected to make a positive contribution to global interoperability and in particular to the successful and timely implementation of interoperable FDP systems which can support the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) operational concept.

The study will be monitored by the Infrastructure and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) and is set to be completed by the end of 2015.
