SESAR 2013-EU-40001-S

Speeding up and facilitating SESAR deployment through convergence between COOPANS and DSNA/4Flight ATM systems


This project brings together French air navigation service provider and several members of COOPANS alliance (service providers in Austria, Denmark, Ireland and Sweden) to set up a solid foundation for the convergence of their respective ATM systems towards a common technical platform by 2025.

The common ATM system will allow remarkable savings through a progressive harmonisation of the existing infrastructures, sharing costs for new functionalities, technical operating procedures, training, maintenance and development; and ultimately reduce flight costs for passengers. 

The project is also expected to facilitate the completion of the Single European Sky initiative, which aims to increase Europe's airspace capacity and reduce the risk of accidents, environmental impact of flights and flight costs.

The activities funded under this decision fall under the first phase of this project and will run from 2014 to 2016.

The action is closed.

EU contribution: €536,852
