The European Union will support with almost €2 million from the TEN-T Programme a project supporting the planning, execution and monitoring of the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) priority deployment activities.
The project, which was selected for funding under the 2011 TEN-T Annual Call, will support the work of the Interim Deployment Steering Group (IDSG), which is tasked with identifying the first short-term SESAR deployment projects which should be realised by 2014. As of this date, in fact, a definitive deployment manager will take over the work of the IDSG and the steering of the SESAR deployment activities.
The EU-supported project will help coordinate the input of the participating national Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) to accelerate the decision-making process at IDSG level.
The project will be managed by the Trans-European Transport Network Executive Agency and is set to be completed by April 2014.
