The Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) initiative to achieve increased ATM System performance Timothy Fenoulhet Head of Office European Commission, Montreal
DG TREN Air transport is an important element of European growth billion to European GDP (~2%) -Employs over 3 million people -70 new airlines since creation of the Single Market Developing air transport capacity and infrastructure is essential to European economy The european skies are becoming larger
DG TREN Europe facing development challenges Air Traffic in Europe will more than double within the next 20 years Over 17 million flights per year 12.5 million 10.5 million
DG TREN Air Traffic Control is operated like 20 years ago Basic technologies are obsolete European airspace cannot be further divided Europe facing development challenges
DG TREN An ATM reform is needed ! Traffic growth in Europe cannot be sustained without a substantial technological leap Technology is not the only challenge: decision making is also a key issue
DG TREN The Single Sky Legislation reforms the organisation of air navigation service provision Separation of regulatory activities from service provision (National Supervisory Authorities, Air navigation service providers) Organisation of cross-border functional airspace blocks Common standards for service provision (certification, Charging schemes) Interoperability Establishes bodies which manage implementation (SSC, ICB), involving all stakeholders (staff, military,…) Implementing powers to the Commission Single European Sky ATM Institutional reform
DG TREN Technological & industrial complement to the Single Sky Legislation SES ATM Technological reform Technological advances developed by SESAR will be implemented through EU law AR
DG TREN One programme for Europe a solution to European issues with a global perspective Open to international partnership shared by all the players in the air transport sector Combines resources and efforts – avoiding fragmentation Addresses environmental issues One vision to be shared with the world
DG TREN Objectives A consistent, focussed and user-driven project. Ambitious but realistic objectives for the European ATM infrastructure: Triple capacity Reduce by 50% ATM costs Increase safety by a factor of 10 10% reduction of environmental impact per flight A European programme with worldwide reach
DG TREN Develop and implement the best performing technologies and operations that will sustain European air transport growth Rationalise efforts into a consistent and ambitious Continental work programme Provide consistency between R&D and implementation, through EU Legislation.
DG TREN Deployment Development Definition > phases Define the different technological steps, programme priorities and operational implementation plans. Develop new equipments, systems or standards, through defined and coherent R&D activities; Deploy the new system through a large scale production and implementation of the new ATM infrastructure.
DG TREN End development Single European Sky SESAR Mid term review SES Review Deployment Early deployment > EASA ATM extension Development FAB assessment SJU Close down SJU setu p ATM Master plan Full interoperability capability Definition NSA s EASA crew/operat extension EASA airport extension
DG TREN An effort of ~200 persons full-time for 2 years Work is performed by a consortium of over 30 companies and Eurocontrol Consortium is led by Aircraft Operators Project directorate headed by Airbus Assembles wide stakeholders expertise With international participation SESAR is currently in the Definition phase
DG TREN Total cost = 60 million co-funded by EC and Eurocontrol The definition phase will produce the European ATM Master plan Definition phase
DG TREN The definition phase will produce the European ATM Master plan The ATM Master Plan will provide the schedule and work programme for the development & implementation of new technologies, functions or organisations needed in all regions of Europe.
DG TREN It is defined by the principle players of the air transport sector It shall be endorsed by the Council and Parliament of the EU It applies and is consistent with ICAO guidelines, in particular the: Global ATM Operational Concept Global Performance Manual It will be an input into evolutions of the Global Air Navigation Plan European ATM Master plan
DG TREN Development phase This phase will be managed by the SESAR Joint Undertaking This phase will develop and validate equipments, systems & standards, which will ensure a convergence towards a fully interoperable ATM system
DG TREN SESAR Joint Undertaking An initiative of the European Commission Established by a EU Council Regulation adopted on Allows to combine public and private resources Full involvement of stakeholders Single management of R&D Coherence of the project Political control by Community
DG TREN SESAR Joint Undertaking Single management entity Consistency and cost effectiveness Performance-orientedmanagement No ATM R&D will be funded outside of SESAR
DG TREN International cooperation JU Membership is open to public & private entities from Non EU Countries which have concluded at least one agreement with the European Community in the field of air transport EC and FAA signed a Memorandum of Understanding organising coordination of SESAR and NEXTGEN Standardisation through ad hoc bodies (CEN/CENELEC/ETSI, EUROCAE, …) EASA will become increasingly involved Coordination at ICAO level
DG TREN Conclusions SESAR is conceived as an open programme Capacity x 3 Reduce by 50% ATM costs Increase safety x10 Reduce environmental impact per flight by 10% SESAR is an ambitious project for developing the new European ATM system Public-private partnership International participation The SESAR Joint Undertaking will manage the development phase SESAR will be coordinated at an international level International members International agreements ICAO
