The Work Programme: Definitely results-focussed

Jan. 5, 2009

Using the ATM Master Plan developed during the SESAR Definition Phase, the Work Programme defines all projects and activities to be undertaken in the 2008-2014 timeframe under the supervision of the SESAR JU. The Work Programme, executed in cooperation with our 16 members, including EUROCONTROL, comprises 16 work packages oriented to providing tangible results from the ATM Network R&D Programme. These packages will develop and deliver the necessary operational and technical materials (specifications, procedures, prototypes, validation reports, etc) for the progressive industrialisation, deployment and operation of the new ATM system.

The Programme is split in 4 different threads:

  • Operational activities are addressed under WPs 4, 5, 6 and 7,
  • System development activities are addressed under WPs 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 15,
  • System Wide Information Management is addressed under WPs 8 and 14,
  • "Transverse activities", such as validation infrastructure, development of safety, security, environment and human performance cases, ATM Master Plan maintenance, Target concept and architecture maintenance, are dealt with additional WPs (i.e. B, C, 3, 16).
