Operational Excellence Programme (ATS B2) Workshop - ADS-C Common Service CONOPS

The Operational Excellence Programme Workstream Topic 12.2 (ATS B2) Workshop on a Concept of Operations for the ADS-C Common Service took place as a hybrid event on 13 September 2022.

The benefit of this topic is to provide a coherent European phased approach to the deployment and harmonised use of ATS B2 standards for European trajectory-based operations (TBO) in partnership with all stakeholders. At its 6th meeting, the NDTECH working arrangement confirmed the activation of the workstream by prioritising support for the CP1 AF6 regulation on initial trajectory sharing (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/116 of 1 February 2021).

The purpose of the workshop was to inform and consult operational, technical and industry stakeholders, on the concept of operations (CONOPS) that is being prepared for October 2022. It will lead to the preparation of complementary EUROCONTROL Specifications and Guidelines for the implementation of an ADS-C common service making use of SESAR validations (PJ31) and demonstrations (PJ38) which will be published before the end of 2023.

The workstream topic is co-led by EUROCONTROL ([email protected]) and SDM ([email protected]) who may be contacted for further information.
