SWIM Demo: Great challenge - Outstanding success
During 3 closed-out demonstration sessions gathering over 200 participants, SESAR partners met at World ATM Congress on 12 & 13 of February to demonstrate live the agility and flexibility System Wide Information Management (SWIM) can bring. These demonstration sessions presented the collaborative decision making capabilities of the SWIM technical infrastructure and tested its capacities of information sharing, service orientation, federation, open standards and information & service lifecycle management.
Once more, it proves that SESAR is bringing tangible, deployable solutions to the ATM world.
An impressive set-up
The demonstrations involved 10 different ATM organisations interconnecting 31 instances and successfully exchanging information on airspace, flights, airports and weather. They proved the benefits of SWIM and how its maturing prototypes are closer to deployment in the near future.
SESAR Members and associate members directly involved in the SWIM Demonstration include DSNA/Meteo France, ENAV/IDS, EUROCONTROL, Frequentis, Honeywell, Indra, NATMIG, NATS, NORACON, SELEX ES and Thales.
“Now I understand what SWIM is all about”
“SWIM is becoming a reality”
“This demonstration has shown that with very little effort you can interconnect many different systems if you apply the SWIM principles”
These are just a few quotes from enthusiastic participants.
