PJ.17 W2 SWIM infrastructure


The project ‘SWIM infrastructure’ covers the following candidate SESAR Solutions:

  • Solution PJ.17-W2-100 SWIM TI Purple Profile for Air/Ground Safety-Critical Information Sharing.

The solution allows the distribution of safety-critical information through A/G SWIM infrastructure and aeronautical telecommunications network/Internet protocol suite (ATN/IPS) networking, rather than legacy point-to-point contracted services. Technical specifications will have to be defined to support safety and security requirements allowing exchange of safety critical information.

  • Solution PJ.17-W2-101 SWIM TI Green profile for G/G Civil Military Information Sharing.

The solution aims at enabling Ground/Ground civil – military SWIM based coordination at SWIM technical infrastructure level through SWIM profiles with an adequate quality of service, including (cyber) security/ resilience, needed by military stakeholders and agreed by civil stakeholders.

System Wide Information Management (SWIM) Technical Infrastructure (TI) Air-Ground (A/G) Solutions are required for supporting Information Exchange Services and SWIM-enabled Applications for the future ATM System. Further work is required to mature and validate SWIM A/G solutions (SWIM Technical Infrastructure purple profile) for safety critical services, and SWIM solutions supporting civil-military interoperability.

While the technological solutions developed under this topic do not have direct impact on operational key performance areas, they are in the critical path to deliver the ATM Master Plan performance ambition in areas as efficiency, capacity, safety and security. Cost-efficiency of operating air/ground communication systems is expected to be greatly improved.
