Updated yearly, the Plan covers a short to medium-term horizon of around 5 years ahead. It is based on the ATM MP L1 and L2, the SESAR Deployment Programme (SDP), the Network Strategy Plan (NSP), and the SES Interoperability Regulations. In turn, the MPL3 Implementation Plan feeds the LSSIP+ monitoring mechanism as well as the reporting process through the yearly elaboration of the MPL3 Implementation Report.
The MPL3 Plan 2022 edition mirrors the content of the SESAR Deployment Programme (SDP) for what concerns the IR (EU) 2021/116 on the Common Project 1 (CP1). It also features the following changes in the Implementation Objectives:
- 11 new (7 active and 4 initial),
- 2 removed, replaced with 2 new active and 1 new initial,
- 3 achieved.
Nine Implementation Objectives fully build on mature SESAR Solutions for which Stakeholders expressed their interest. The other two, instead, summarise the work at European level to address safety concerns in the areas of airspace infringements and runway excursions.
The ATM Master Plan Level 3 Implementation Plan 2022 has been approved by SESAR Joint Undertaking (SJU) and endorsed by the Provisional Council (PC) of EUROCONTROL, in September 2022.
