Civil-Military CNS Interoperability Workshop

15 November 2018

Paving the way for a more efficient and automated European aviation network.

The new challenges in aviation open the door for a more efficient and automated network which requires a modernised and integrative communication, navigation and surveillance (CNS) infrastructure.

Moreover, global interoperability, the new all-inclusive aviation concepts and architecture, and the related rationalisation of the CNS infrastructure, provide a perfect framework for a more cooperative civil and military ATM/CNS network. In this context, it is essential that the levels of interoperability between civil and military systems are enhanced and that technology cycles are synchronized.

Against this background, EUROCONTROL will host a one-day interactive Civil-Military CNS Interoperability Workshop aiming at raising participants' awareness about the challenges facing the military and other stakeholders in the field of CNS in Europe. The intention is also to trigger a debate around potential solutions for fulfilling emerging civil-military interoperability requirements whilst minimising the technical impact and cost for military organisations.

The event has these objectives:

  • Demonstrate the importance of civil-military CNS interoperability in aviation;
  • Identify CNS research objectives and opportunities vis-à-vis civil-military interoperability and technology convergence;
  • Discuss the CNS technical challenges and interoperability approaches for military operations while moving towards higher levels of systems integration/connectivity and security.


The event is open to all aviation stakeholders interested in civil-military CNS interoperability, opportunities, and challenges for civil-military CNS.

Participation is free of charge, however, registration is required as seats are limited.

Registrations will close on 31 October 2018 at 17:00 CET.  However, due to space limitations and site security, registration is done on a first-come first-served basis. If the maximum number of attendees is reached prior to the deadline, we will close the registration earlier. Thus we advise you strongly to register as soon as possible.
