17th February 2004: Slide 1 DG Transport and Energy OATA Workshop 17th February 2004 European Commission OATA and the Single European Sky
17th February 2004: Slide 2 DG Transport and Energy Objective of the package A European Single Sky Reinforcing safety Restructuring the European airspace as function of traffic flows, no longer according to national borders Creating additional capacities Increasing the efficiency of the traffic management system More staff Enhanced international coordination Decision-making and enforcement processes Delays All stakeholders collaborate and commit themselves A demand driven service provision ensured organisations route network military zones systems More effective Air Traffic Management architecture
17th February 2004: Slide 3 DG Transport and Energy The air traffic management package: 4 Regulations Framework regulation on the creation of the Single Europan Sky Fixes end 2004 as the deadline for the creation of the Single European sky. Proposes a new institutional organisation of European airspace as well as new working methods. Regulation on the provision of Air Navigation Services Promotes the safe and efficient provision of air navigation services in a seamless and interoperable manner across the European Union. Regulation on the organisation and use of the airspace Creates a European airspace as an operating continuum where common procedures for the design, planning and management ensure the safe performance of air traffic management network. Regulation on the interoperability of the European Air Traffic Management network. Defines the conditions to ensure interoperability in the European Union between the different systems of the air traffic management network and their upgrading to new technologies.
17th February 2004: Slide 4 DG Transport and Energy Organisation and use of airspace Creation of a European Upper Flight Information Region Will replace corresponding national existing zones. Uniform organisation. Services operating therein to comply to same set of rules. Reconfiguration of the upper airspace into functional airspace blocks of minimum size based on safety and efficiency criteria regardless of national boundaries. Harmonisation of airspace classification. Enhanced coordination between civil and military For the efficient allocation and use of military airspace including its opening to civil flights. Safeguard clause allowing Member States to ask for suspension of Community rules in case of conflict with national military requirements. Traffic flow management Adoption of rules and conditions for the management of air traffic flows in cooperation with service providers, airports and airspace users. Mechanisms allowing for a more disciplined use of airspace aiming at integrating airports in the management.
17th February 2004: Slide 5 DG Transport and Energy Interoperability of the European ATM network Essential requirements, Implementing Rules and Community Specifications Mandatory Essential Requirements are established Implementation Rules to enforce the requirements to secure compliance with operational and technical developments Drafting of Community Specifications implying the consensual agreement of stakeholders on standards of voluntary application Procedures Optimisation of the Community s financial aid procedures through the Transeuropean Network progamme and the 5th R&D Framework program Provision of a Framework for projects of European interest through the 6th R&D Framework programme Implementation rules by Eurocontrol following transparent procedures Standards to be adopted by consensus after a public enquiry and approbation by recognised standarisation organisations Product manufacturers to make a declaration of conformity to essential requirements Platform for development of technological progress
17th February 2004: Slide 6 DG Transport and Energy Standardisation - the New approach in ATM Compliance with Essential Requirements Essential Requirements lead to Implementing Rules for interoperability; Implementing Rules developed under mandates issued by the Commission (eg: by Eurocontrol); Implementing Rules will be adopted by the Single European Sky (SES) Committee Community Specifications: Technical - may be European Standards drawn up by CEN/CENELEC/ETSI in co-operation with Eurocae; Operational – may be Eurocontrol
17th February 2004: Slide 7 DG Transport and Energy Future European ATM System The Single European Sky legislation is pushing towards: consolidation of ATM (FBAs, ATSPs, etc) development of the future European ATM System The Future European ATM System based on: Common operational concept Common functionality Common architecture Co-ordinated implementation air and ground
17th February 2004: Slide 8 DG Transport and Energy Contribution of OATA A long term target architecture needs to be defined; Current ATM systems need to transition to that architecture; Essential requirements need to be developed; Systems need to be modified: Encouraged by incentives Backed up by legislation OATA is considered as the vehicle to define the target architecture and provide the necessary information for the essential requirements and implementing rules.
