SESAR Joint Undertaking
SESAR Joint Undertaking
SINTEF Digital is a full member through the NATMIG consortium together with 18 other partners/consortia, approximately 80 partners including third parties.
SESAR Joint Undertaking (SJU) is a Private Public Partnership funded by EU and EUROCONTROL in 2008. The objective of SESAR is to modernize European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures. SESAR 2020 Wave 1 & 2 stretches from 2016 until 2024 and SINTEF Digital is expected to take part in approximately 15 projects with an estimated funding of 5 M€.
Towards the end of the SESAR definition phase, SINTEF realized that it would be important to become a member of SESAR to take part in future European ATM research. SINTEF, as the only research organization, partnered with a few industrial companies and established NATMIG with the ambition to become a full member of the first SESAR Programme.
SINTEF carries out contract research in a wide range of scientific and technical areas. The business model spans from basic research with main focus on applied research to commercialization of results into new business ideas.
The other partners of NATMIG was Saab (Sweden), Airtel ANT (Ireland) and Park Air Systems (today; Indra Navia) (Norway). www.NATMIG.eu
SESAR 2020 PROJECTS
Essential and Efficient Communication Navigation and Surveillance Integrated Systems (SESAR PJ 14 EECNS)
The project aims to specify and develop the future technologies coming from the CNS domains in order to support and manage the operational services, like the 4D trajectory management, in the future ATM system.
Controller Working Position (SESAR PJ 16 CWP)
The project aims to reduce development and operating costs of air navigation service provision.
Content Integration (SESAR PJ 19 CI)
The project aims to generate a consolidated big picture of the future European ATM system – the SESAR 2020 Concept of Operations, high-level architecture options, services and the associated performance results.
Integrated Airport Operations (SESAR PJ 28 IAO)
Project PJ 28, A Very Large Demonstration (VLD) project, will demonstrate the benefits that specific promising SESAR solutions will bring in a large and two mid-size airports, where traffic congestion daily takes place during the peak season and where new SESAR solutions are expected to assist controllers in their duty.
Advanced Demand and Capacity Balancing (SESAR PJ 09 DCB)
The project will evolve the existing DCB process to a powerful distributed network management function which takes full advantage of the SESAR layered collaborative planning, trajectory management principles and SWIM technology to improve the effectiveness of ATM resource planning and the network performance of the ATM system in Europe.
Advanced Airspace Management (SESAR PJ 08 AAM)
The project will focus on dynamic airspace configurations (DAC) and dynamic mobile areas (DMA), which enable more flexible response to traffic demand and regional/local performance objectives.
Remote Tower (SESAR PJ 05)
The project proposes the development of a remotely provided aerodrome air traffic service by a "multiple" and/or "centre" setting. Those settings help to combine ATS services from various aerodromes in a centralized control room independent on airport location in order to make use of the valuable resource ATS provider more efficiently.
Total Airport Management (SESAR PJ 04 TAM)
The project is articulated around two SESAR Solutions, emphasising all of the key airport processes. Integration of airports into the ATM network will be addressed through sharing information in a timely manner between the network operations plan and the individual AOPs using SWIM technology.
Integrated Surface Management (SESAR PJ 03a SUMO)
The future European ATM system relies on full integration of airports as nodes into the network. In this context, the integrated surface management project (PJ.03a) aims to identify and validate operational and technological solutions aiming at enhancing airport operations.
