EUROCONTROL Network Manager User Week

Scalability and resilience to move the network forward

The EUROCONTROL Network Manager's User Forum is the yearly major air traffic management (ATM) event for European aviation's operational community. In 2021 we brought the event to you in a whole new virtual format - the EUROCONTROL Network Manager User Week.

In five days and five webinars, "Your Annual Operational Networking Event" addressed key challenges of the European ATM network with a special focus on:

Scalability and resilience to move the network forward.

With the COVID-19 pandemic still having a serious impact on our industry and daily lives, we decided to try and make this annual must-attend ATM event as accessible as possible by going digital.

If you are interested in revisiting any of the five days of the event, you can watch the recordings below.

ATM infrastructure – Plan, deploy and monitor together

Civil and military ATM infrastructure is the technical enabler for pilots and controllers to maintain the safe separation of aircraft. This infrastructure needs to further embrace digitalisation to boost performance, resilience & scalability. You will discover how the EUROCONTROL Network Manager is defending the ATM system against cyber threats, while treading cautiously but optimistically on the use of artificial intelligence. You will also learn about some of the key changes to be expected between now and 2030 for both ground infrastructure and avionics, and the role that Network Manager plays in supporting ANSPs, aircraft operators and airports. Infrastructure planning, deployment and monitoring are not immune to the challenges posed by decarbonisation and COVID-driven funding challenges - you will hear the latest thinking from Network Manager on these topics.
