Validating SESAR

As a performance-based R&D programme, SESAR systematically validates the work of its technological and operational projects.

The mechanism used to validate these solutions is known as the Release process. This process involves solutions undergoing thorough pre-industrial development and integration testing within a given timeframe in order to establish their readiness for industrialisation and subsequent deployment.

Since 2011, SESAR has been carrying out one release every year and has so far completed 68 exercises, consisting of a range of flight trials and simulations. 

The below map gives you an overview of each release process completed to date. Users have the option to view by Release or to view all options.
