Approach

Deployment

SESAR Solutions are being implemented either to answer local needs or in a synchronised and coordinated many in order to deliver a maximum of Europe-wide benefits.

Local deployment

SESAR Solutions are deployed based on local rather than system-wide business cases. In cases such as these only a moderate degree of harmonisation of systems, rules and procedures are required. There are several examples of local deployment already underway, such as remote towers.

Synchronised deployment

SESAR Solutions may also be deployed in synchronised and coordinated manner in order to:

  • address known critical network performance deficiencies;
  • deliver efficient service and infrastructure, such as the automation of routine tasks and infrastructure rationalisation
  • allow regional, trajectory-based, flight- and flow-centric operations, which require solutions such as fully integrated data communications and high efficiency regional, flight centric ATM.

In June 2014, the European Commission adopted a Regulation for the implementation of the Pilot Common Project (PCP), the first set of ATM functionalities (SESAR Solutions). The PCP is managed by the SESAR Deployment Manager.
