Surveillance Specifications

  • EUROCONTROL Specification for ATM Surveillance System Performance
  • EUROCONTROL Standard for Radar Surveillance in En-Route Airspace and Major Terminal Areas
  • Generic Surveillance Safety and Performance Requirement  (GEN SUR SPR)
    A few years ago, the EUROCONTROL Surveillance and Code Coordination Unit, with support from stakeholders, initiated the drafting of a Generic Surveillance Safety and Performance Requirement (GEN SUR SPR). The matter was then undertaken by EUROCAE, which, in 2015, established Working Group WG-102 with the objective of developing a EUROCAE GEN-SUR SPR standard. The EUROCONTROL working draft Ed 1.3 of GEN SUR SPR document is one of the inputs to the EUROCAE WG102 activity. The document is superseded by the EUROCAE WG102 work and access to it is therefore restricted.  If you are interested in the EUROCONTROL draft document in support of the EUROCAE work, please contact us.  Parties interested in further contributing to this work and in accessing GEN-SUR SPR document updates are invited to contact EUROCAE.
