Title: SESAR Single European Sky Air traffic management Research

SESARSingle European Sky Air traffic management
  • Which meteorological service provision for SESAR?

WMO CAeM-XIV, Hong-Kong (China), February 2010
The SESAR programme
  • Detailed description available on the SESAR web
  • http//
  • While the SES Regulations are the institutional
    framework allowing to solve traffic congestion in
    Europe, SESAR a huge public/private partnership
    - will design the technical response to that

EU Three Phases of European ATM Development
  • Definition Phase 2006 - 2008
  • SESAR produced a European ATM Master Plan
  • Development Phase 2008 2014
  • Managed by SESAR Joint Undertaking
  • Based on Master Plan
  • Results in Standards, new operational procedures,
    new technologies, pre-industrial components
  • Deployment Phase 2015 2025
  • Implements results of development phase
  • Delivers the service performance increase
    foreseen in the ATM Master Plan

Concept Of Operation
  • Civil and Military ATM performance partnership
  • Integration of Air and Ground systems
  • Integration of Airport turn Around Operations
  • 4D trajectory prediction
  • System Wide Information Management
  • Automation Support to the Human Being
  • Rolling Operations Network Plan
  • Efficient Separation Modes

The SESAR basic concept
  • The concept is detailed management of air
    navigation by taking into account all the factors
    which may or may not have an impact on each
    flight, from before the departure gate to after
    the arrival gate
  • Thus ATM decisions must be made using all the
    necessary information (MET included) for each
    step of a flight
  • Requires full interoperability
  • Requires full integration of data (e.g. MET) into
    ATM automatic/semi automatic decision making
  • This is a completely new and very ambitious

Industrial implications
  • The SESAR programme necessitates the adoption of
    new tools and technologies for air traffic
  • The Development Phase has significant involvement
    from private industry who are investing heavily
    in it
  • The programme is very complex and it has
    significant financial implications

The role of meteorology
  • Meteorology is a large factor of uncertainty in
    the SESAR concept
  • The key document for SESAR is the SESAR ATM
    Master Plan seehttp//
  • The word meteo can be found 34 times in the
    SESAR Master Plan
  • But at the end of reading it, you do not know
    more about how meteorology service provision
    could contribute to SESAR

Not properly taking the MET factor into account
in the SESAR programme is a serious threat for
its full success
  • It is recognised that the existing ICAO
    provisions do not respond to the ATM needs of the
  • The level of awareness of that threat slowly
    increased within the SESAR JU
  • They decided to develop an action plan allowing
    to better take meteorology on board

MET in the SESAR Programme
  • MET is so far taken into account in two Working
    Packages of SESAR
  • WP8 so far, the main MET outcome is a MET data
    fusion demonstrator see
  • http//
  • WP11 the MET component of it is now under
    definition following an adequate EU procedure

Scope of WP 11
  • To define and validate flight and wing operation
    centre requirements for business/mission
    trajectory planning and execution
  • Address meteorological components to increase ATM
    performance a transversal process

Selection of WP11 potential partners
  • SESAR JU lauched on the 15th September 2009 a
    call for interest, inviting the potential
    partners of MET service provision to SESAR to
    express their interest to participate in further
    discussions in that regard
  • On the 19th November 2009, Pre Qualified
    Tenderers (PQT) were selected
  • The EUMETNET EIG, which is the group of EU NMHS,
    responded to that call (some EUMETNET members did
    not participate to that response) and is a PQT

Next steps
  • Following the evaluation of the received
    responses to the prequalification questionnaire
    and registration of interest, a competitive
    dialogue will be launched by the SESAR JU
  • There will be three steps in that competitive
  • Invitation to submit outline solutions (at
    present ongoing in February 2010 EUMETNET is now
    working on it)
  • Invitation to submit detailed solutions
  • Invitation to submit final offers (call for
  • The award of contract(s) is planned for September

We are convinced that any solution will have to
be global and we welcome all efforts to enhance
cooperation in the METATM domain
  • It is likely that the proposed solutions will
    derive from the technical work undertaken with
    Eurocontrol, the METATMTF of the EUR Air
    Navigation Planning Group of ICAO
  • Eurocontrol and the US-FAA also provide
    opportunities for coordination in the MET domain
    between SESAR and NextGen by organising technical
    interchange meetings

  • Thank you for your attention
