SWIM Master Class 2012


A SWIM Master Class was organised from June to October 2012 with the objective of further developing and demonstrating the added value of state-of-the-art information technology for air traffic management.

Target audience

Open to all interested parties wishing to develop and demonstrate their SWIM-enabled application, over 50 teams (Software development companies, universities, etc.) participated.


By participating in the SWIM Master Class, candidates were part of the community of SWIM developers and could learn and share experiences. In addition, the best-in-class applications will gain further visibility  throughout 2012-2013.
