Information exchange between civil and military operators based on SWIM was first tested during SWIM TI green profile SESAR 1. SESAR 2020 expands this bi-directional data flow to fully support SWIM-based coordination and cooperation between civil and military stakeholders, taking into account cybersecurity. The SWIM technical infrastructure - or middleware – being developed for this application exclusively centres on SWIM-based exchanges between military systems, such as ATC, air defence (AD) or wing operations centres (WOC), and civil systems, such as ATC and Network Manager (NM) systems on the ground. Typical domains of interest include management of priority flights, military-specific requirements for air policing, sensitive data handling and resilience.

The candidate solution is relevant to any operational environment where civil-military cooperation takes place. It can apply to existing SWIM services developed in SESAR 1, or future new services. To be relevant to all sectors, the military SWIM-enabled systems can be located in a military unclassified subdomain, or in a military classified sub-domain – such as AD. In the second case, the bidirectional data flow would go through an information exchange gateway (IEG) that connects both sub-domains in order to reach the military SWIM node located in the military unclassified sub-domain, which is connected to the civil infrastructure network
