Validation Master Plan (VMP)

This document is one of the main products of the first phase (Definition phase) of MAEVA.

The document establishes a validation framework for analysing projects involving validation of the air traffic management (ATM) system monitored. This framework includes a reference model, a validation methodology, the operational concept developed by the TORCH project and the operational improvements established by Eurocontrol for the European ATM Programme (EATMP). The TORCH Operational Concept and the Operational Improvements are presented briefly.

The MAEVA vision of the overall validation process is presented. This vision is based on the mapping of validation programmes and exercises over time, and then establishing relationships with the TORCH Operational Concept.

The overall MAEVA overview of the validation process is presented in a series of tables that show the status of each of the monitored validation projects with regard to series of validation-related aspects. These aspects include the TORCH elements addressed, interactions with other projects, the ATM and validation scope and the project results.

On the basis of all the information, this document identifies potential gaps and potential overlaps in addressing the elements of the TORCH Operational Concept, as broken down into operational improvements. Finally, the document presents conclusions reached from the analysis conducted of the individual projects.
