ENAIRE showcases the most advanced air traffic control position at the World ATM Congress 2019

- Madrid, Spain

At stand 844, ENAIRE will showcase iFOCUCS, the latest, cutting-edge air traffic  control position that Spain's air traffic control centres are to be equipped with. Safety, technological progress, innovation, airspace capacity and efficiency will also play a key role for ENAIRE at this world congress in line with our Flight Plan 2020 and SESAR 2020.

With the motto "Addressing major ATM problems: capacity, integration of drones and people", the World ATM Congress will once again be held in Madrid, attracting 8,500 professionals from 136 countries, with the presence of 230 companies from the aeronautical industry and 80 air navigation suppliers.

This event is promoted by CANSO, the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation comprising air traffic control service providers from all over the world, of which ENAIRE is a founding member; and ATCA, an organisation that combines the entire United States air traffic industry.

As well as conferences, companies and industries showcase the latest air traffic control technology at an exhibition open to the public by pre-registration on this web. At this trade fair, the Public Works Group (Grupo Fomento) will be represented by ENAIRE, Ineco and Senasa at a joint stand where they will showcase their most relevant projects.


#SaveTheDate! From 12 to 14 March, numerous presentations will take place and there will be guided tours to show how ENAIRE is working towards safe U-space drone integration with SESAR, digitalisation, capacity and demand, simulation and safety...

Co-organised by SESAR Joint Undertaking and SESAR Deployment Manager, ENAIRE will participate in 11 of the 16 walking tours where the visitor will have the opportunity to meet experts from the SESAR scientific community and directly see a wide variety of solutions that are being introduced and put into practice throughout Europe.
