EUROCONTROL, in partnership with the European Commission and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), is organising a high-level technical workshop on how standards need to adapt to support the transition to the distributed architecture proposed by the airspace architecture study (AAS).
This online event will focus on:
- The current and future regulatory framework for interoperability and deployment
- The role of standards in enabling the AAS: what needs to be standardised? What can be re-used?
- How do standards support the transition from today’s system to the future architecture?

Organised in cooperation with:
The AAS and Transition Plan have set a challenge to the ATM community: Accelerate the deployment of a new distributed architecture that enables seamless, flexible and scalable provision of services.
This will require new technology, new approaches to service delivery and even new forms of service provider. It is a collaborative vision – with European airspace managed as a single continuum by a virtual and collective system operated by national ANSPS, ATM Data Service Provider (ADSPs) as well as CNS, MET and AIS providers. This new ATM system needs to support both civil and military requirements. It needs to be defined, implemented and operated collaboratively by all involved.
An evolved EASA-led regulatory framework is required to identify means of compliance, and new forms of interoperability are also needed – for example between ANSPs and ADSPs – alongside a common set of services than can be tailored to local specificities whilst maintaining true harmonisation. Enabling the AAS will require new ways of thinking about standards - to define interoperability requirements, to support large scale deployment and enable operational approval of both systems and services.
