PJ.19 W2 Content Integration, Performance Management and Business Case Development

Project description

Modernising European air traffic management

The modernisation of European air traffic management (ATM) is a high priority for Europe. The goal is for key European aviation stakeholders to work together to ensure that, the digital transformation of aviation is not fragmented and that game-changing ideas are pursued. The EU-funded PJ19-W2 CI project is part of the SESAR 2020 Programme, in continuation of the SESAR Wave 1 PJ19 CI project. It will enable the assessment of the overall performance of the SESAR Solutions brought together against the performance improvements expected for the European ATM system and set by the European ATM Master Plan. It will provide the SESAR Solutions with guidance, training, coaching and support to define and validate ATM Concept and Technologies. It will also support the process to assess their maturity (completeness, consistency, coherency and performance improvements) from a holistic perspective represented in the SESAR 2020 Concept of Operations and the SESAR Architecture Reference.


PJ19 W2 CI is a transversal activity of the SESAR 2020 Programme in continuation of the SESAR Wave 1 PJ19 CI Content Integration project.
It aims to integrate the SESAR Solutions into the integrated European ATM System in order to achieve the objectives set by the ATM Master Plan (MP). This integrated European ATM System provides the overall European ATM concept, the high-level architecture options, the services, the supporting solutions, and the performance achievements associated with them. As such, PJ.19 W2 does not create any specific ATM concept or solution but produces a set of deliverables which consolidate the SESAR 2020 Programme outcomes and provides yearly integrated reference material – the SESAR 2020 Architecture release (EATMA version) . This is done in close collaboration and coordination with all SESAR 2020 Solutions and the SJU through continuous, rolling and iterative content integration.
PJ19-W2 allows the assessment of the overall performance of the SESAR Solutions compared with the performance improvements expected for the European ATM.
Whilst the decisions are made by SJU management and SESAR governance, PJ.19 W2 activities support and guide the processes (e.g. safety, security assessment, human performance, performance assessment, cost benefit analysis (CBA), architecture, requirements) to bring the SESAR Solutions together and assess their maturity (completeness, consistency and coherency) from a holistic perspective represented in the SESAR 2020 Concept of Operations.
The PJ.19 W2 activities provide major inputs for the ATM MP production (ATM architecture information (e.g. data set), performance and CBA consolidation, business case production), which are further consolidated at the time of the ATM MP update campaign by the PJ.20 W2 ‘Master Planning’ project).
PJ19-W2 provides support for the SJU/SESAR governance decision-making and programme execution monitoring and also contributes to the realisation of the ATM MP.
