ANSP Coordination within IDSG: Deploying SESAR
The project “ANSPs coordination within the Interim Deployment Steering Group (IDSG)” was fulfilled within the period 2012 – 2014 and had a crucial role in the early deployment of the technological pillar of the European Commission’s initiative for Single European Sky (SES) – SESAR.
SESAR’s aim is to ensure that European airspace is controlled even more safely and efficiently, with minimal delay and with fewer emissions, with reduced cost and improved performance, by the development and implementation of new technologies.
The IDSG has been established to steer the early implementation of the main SESAR deployments, delivering benefits to the air transport industry and the users at the earliest opportunity. It also had a vital role in facilitating the transition from the development to the deployment phase of SESAR, acting as a test prior to the establishment of the permanent Deployment Manager – SESAR Deployment manager.
Coordination of the ANSPs within IDSG supported the timely and coordinated deployment of ATM activities across Europe, particularly those which require synchronization at the network level, through the Interim SESAR deployment programme, including progress reports on the programme execution, risk analysis and proposition for corrective action.
