2011 Workshop Presentations
Symposium on Network Performance
In association with: EUROCONTROL, IATA, CANSO, ACI & European Commission
Overview: Performance targets will be a very demanding factor of service delivery for all the ATM partners in the short and long term. It is only by working in partnership that these targets can be met.
Can these targets be achieved? Will one target influence the achievement of another? Are we in control of all the factors which influence the performance needed? These are some of the questions that were addressed by high-level speakers from air navigation service providers, airports, airlines, EUROCONTROL and the European Commission at the Performance Symposium.
- Joe Sultana, Chief Operating Officer, Directorate Network Management, EUROCONTROL
- Jacques Dopagne, Director Network Management, EUROCONTROL
- Roland Becker, Senior Project Leader Planning and Engineering, Zurich Airport
- Ben W. Berends, Senior Manager ATM Strategy and Charges, KLM
In association with: EUROCONTROL
Overview: ADS-B for both ground and airborne surveillance is now a reality! Deployment and pioneer activities are ongoing worldwide. The goal of global interoperability has been achieved.
This workshop provides an overview of the deployment programmes in Europe, US and other areas. It reviews both the pioneer implementations (by ANSPs and aircraft operators) as well as the regulations (adopted or in preparation) which mandate the carriage of ADS-B equipment. Finally the Workshop will demonstrate that a solid foundation for the future surveillance system is being built, which will ensure the expected benefits for safety, capacity, efficiency, fuel savings and reduction of emissions.

SESAR JU Forum
In association with: SESAR JU
Overview: SESAR is Europe’s unique & ambitious challenge in Research & Development in Air Traffic Management. The ATM modernisation programme will develop the new generation air traffic management system Europe needs. It unites all air transport actors, reaches out to its international counterparts and helps lowering the environmental impact of aviation. At ATC Global, the SESAR Joint Undertaking presented the progress made so far and gives an outlook as to what will happen in 2011.

- Closing comments, Patrick Ky, SESAR JU Executive Director
MET, Serving ATM
In association with: ICAO, EUROCONTROL
Overview: To continue the global engagement between ATM and MET. MET is an essential but mainly ignored element of ATM decision making. This must change if the ambitions of SESAR and NextGen are to be realised within the SWIM construct. Presentations showcase that incorporating MET into the ATM paradigm and sharing information on meteorology and ash and fusing this with relevant ATM information are valuable tools for decision makers at the network management and local levels.
