Europe’s Air Traffic Management (ATM) is a highly-fragmented network composed of country-based systems and processes. This event will demonstrate new ways to improve this situation by mapping the operational needs like rationalisation of infrastructure, delegation of airspace, and contingency on suitable interoperable infrastructures and constituting ATM services like voice communication, flight plan, and surveillance, paving the way for new operational concepts. The event is supported by speeches about operational motivation, technical aspects, and a look into the future about possible Virtual Centre solutions.
