air navigation service providers consortium

COOPANS is an international successful partnership between the air navigation service providers of Austria (Austro Control), Croatia (Croatia Control), Denmark (Naviair), Ireland (Irish Aviation Authority) and Sweden (LFV). Thales is a chosen supplier (industry partner) for COOPANS.

COOPANS partners operate a world class, safe and cost-effective ATM system. COOPANS has adopted a common managerial approach, whereby the five ANSPs act as one organisation together with Thales with a focus on common success.

The harmonisation of functionalities and joint investments enable the implementation of an advanced and unified air traffic control system. COOPANS has structured the development and deployment process around joint activities such as common specification, operational documentation, validation, training materials and generic safety cases.

COOPANS is the golden example for co-operation and harmonisation in Europe.
