SESAR and global interoperability

Since the outset, the SESAR Programme has been committed to and focussed on global interoperability and harmonisation, recognising these as vital prerequisites for a smooth and seamless transition towards a modernised global air traffic management (ATM) system.

Interoperability does NOT mean the same solution everywhere but rather that ‘systems’ at many different levels should be able to work together. The business/mission trajectory is at the heart of worldwide interoperability, while information exchange at the global level is becoming increasingly important for the benefit of the most efficient capabilities and services to be provided according to the flights need of efficiency. This the very reason we call it Business/Mission Trajectory as it underlines the business/mission needs regardless if it is civil or military flight.
