Content integration

Enabling the overall performance assessment of the SESAR solutions brought together against the performance improvements expected for the European ATM.

The SESAR 2020 Content Integration (CI) project aims at providing steering guidance, coordinating and integrating the SESAR solutions to achieve the objectives set by the ATM Master Plan (MP). It supports and guides the processes (e.g. safety, security assessment, human performance, performance assessment, cost-benefit analysis (CBA), architecture, requirement) to bring the SESAR solutions together. It also supports the process to assess their maturity (completeness, consistency and coherency) from a holistic perspective represented in the SESAR 2020 Concept of Operations.

As a whole, CI contributes to the modernisation of Europe’s ATM so as to make the Single European Sky concept a reality.


 The project contributes to:

  • producing and integrating SESAR solutions in a single European ATM architecture;
  • ensuring coherence and consistency of the SESAR 2020 solutions brought together;
  • consolidating the results of performance assessments and CBAs at ECAC level;
  • contributing to the ATM Master Plan Level 1, 2 and 3 production and maintenance;
  • supporting the SESAR programme in the maturity assessment of the SESAR solutions and in the SJU/SESAR governance decision making;
  • maintaining  common European ATM Architecture (EATMA) and performance frameworks for R&D activities;
  • offering training, coaching and reference material that is up to date and consistent with the European ATM Master Plan to all SESAR participants.


The CI project has created common content baselines such as the SESAR 2020 CONOPS, architecture description document (ADD), the European ATM Architecture including the SESAR Solutions and the SESAR solution performance assessment. It has defined also the SESAR performance framework and the European ATM architecture framework. Both have provided a shared foundation and solid view and a common way of working for all SESAR partners. Publicly available deliverables can be accessed on the CORDIS website.

Our contribution

As CI project leader, EUROCONTROL brings its technical expertise, knowledge and capabilities, its ATM operations and ATM architecture expertise, as well as its performance expertise in domains such as environment, capacity, safety, security and CBAs.
