PJ15 COSER Report Summary

Project ID: 734160
Funded under: H2020-EU.3.4.7.

Periodic Reporting for period 1 - PJ15 COSER (Common Services)

Reporting period: 2016-11-01 to 2017-12-31

Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project

Nowadays the ATM business is highly fragmented in Europe with the different stakeholders deploying different solutions for tackling similar functionalities in different locations.
A generic principle of the SESAR programme is that, where services can be delivered in a harmonised manner, they should be. One of the most efficient manners of doing so is through the provision of Common Services.
A Common Service is a service that provides a capability (business functionality) to consumers in the same way that they would otherwise need to provide themselves. As a natural consequence, the Common Services approach addresses the unnecessary costs of fragmentation and ensures the delivery of such functionalities with an improved cost effectiveness, which should in turn benefit the whole European ATM Community.
The main objectives of the PJ.15 project are:

Objective 1: Definition and validation of the Common Services
The main objective of this project is to define, develop and validate the identified Common Services in order to demonstrate the feasibility of the Common Services and the cost-efficiency derived from the Common Service approach.
The following Common Services will be developed and validated in the PJ.15 solutions:
• PJ.15-01. Sub-Regional Demand Capacity Balancing
• PJ.15-02. Delay Sharing
• PJ.15-08. Trajectory Prediction
• PJ.15-09. Data Centre Service for Virtual Centre
• PJ.15-10. Static Aeronautical Data
• PJ.15-11. Aeronautical Digital Map

Objective 2: Integration of the architectural changes produced by the Common Services
PJ.15, through its lifecycle, will produce a number of deliverables which are of interest from the architectural perspective. These deliverables will be delivered for their integration into the ATM architecture (EATMA) on a yearly basis and with the required level of quality and consistency.

Objective 3: Discovery and definition of additional Common Services to be processed in the future
This objective is focused on the discovery and identification of new candidate Common Services coming from other SESAR projects.

Work performed from the beginning of the project to the end of the period covered by the report and main results achieved so far

PJ.15-02 has delivered the Data Pack V1 containing the Business Model and the High Level Architecture. The solution already passed the corresponding V1 Gate. In addition, PJ.15-02 has started the V2/TRL4 phase by defining the services, which will be used for the validations, developing the validation plan, and starting the development of the V2/TRL4 validations.
PJ.15-01 has delivered the Data Pack V1 containing the Business Model and the High Level Architecture. PJ.15-01 has started the V2/TRL3 phase by developing the validation plan, and detailing the content of the V2/TRL4 validations, subsequently defining the services, a subset of which will be used for the validations.
PJ.15-08, PJ.15-10 and PJ.15-11 have delivered the Data Pack V1 containing the Business Model and the High Level Architecture.
Finally, PJ.15-09 has developed an initial draft of the Business Model and High Level Architecture. Discussions about the scope of the Virtual Centre and adjustments of the Common Service method have taken place during this period.

Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)

The main result of the PJ.15 project will be to demonstrate the technical feasibility and the cost-efficiency expected of the six Common Services.
In addition, the project will try to discover new Common Services and integrate the work of the Common Services as part of a new Architecture based in Common Services.
The impact from the deployment of the Common Services Model will be twofold.
On the one side, the Common Services represent a first step to a profound transformation in the European ATM Business Model. In alignment with SESAR 2020’s vision, the Common Services are expected to bring performance-driven innovations.
On the other side, PJ.15 brings a real and tangible benefit to Europe and its citizens. The Solutions that will be deployed could increase the geographical scope where the SESAR Solutions are deployed. This increases the number of flights and passengers that will benefit from the increased Safety provided by SESAR Solutions. For the citizens, the cost-efficiency brought by the Common Services will be translated into a reduction of air navigation services cost per flight which should reduce the final airfare ticket paid by the passenger.
