Objective

The targets addressed through Contract-based Air Transport System project are to propose an innovative Air Traffic Management solution able to face the challenge of traffic growth (2012+ horizons) & improve efficiency of the European Air Transport System. Two ACARE/SRA II's high-level target concepts: Highly Cost-Efficient Air Transport System & Highly Time-Efficient Air Transport System are addressed.

The aim is to propose a new ATM paradigm, based on an innovative operational concept: Contract of Objectives (CoO). This concept introduces an innovative way of managing ATM by mutually agreed objectives leading to a market driven Air Transportation System. It addresses the entire air transport supply chain by reconciling operational links between air & ground services. This functional & operational continuity between ground & air will enhance efficiency by increasing system predictability.
