Digitalisation and information management

Supporting quality data exchanges for a high performance aviation.

About

In an increasingly data-reliant automated environment, the smooth and timely flow of accurate, high quality digital information between aviation actors is of critical importance.

EUROCONTROL contributes to the digitalisation of aviation by developing harmonised information exchange methods and by providing digital services.

EUROCONTROL’s standards, guidance and support material for digital information exchange give the aviation community a harmonised and consistent set of rules, protocols and information exchange models, facilitating interoperability across Europe and around the globe.

EUROCONTROL further supports digitalisation by providing the various data domains - including aeronautical information (AIM), meteorological information (MET) and flight and flow information (FF) - with the relevant guidance, supporting material and exchange models.

As Network Manager, in our central role of collecting, processing and distributing ATM information, we make our digital services available to the aviation community.

We engage with our digital partners to achieve higher levels of automation and to boost operational efficiency and safety.
