The European ATM Information Management Service (EAIMS) is a EUROCONTROL Network Manager (NM) strategic project to deliver a consistent, accurate and up-to-date ATM data set. It will provide reliable access to this common source of pertinent information, with safety, operational and efficiency benefits.
Our goal is to ensure access to consolidated, consistent and operationally validated data in a seamless and transparent way from a single access point in support of ARO/AIS/ASM/ATFCM/ATS, flight operations and airport operations. Our main objective is to deploy the reference source of aeronautical, air traffic flow and capacity management (ATFCM) and related information for all ATM actors.
This will facilitate the seamless integration of the upstream-downstream processes and also provide services/tools to help air navigation service providers (ANSPs) meet their ICAO and Single European Sky (SES) obligations, such as compliance with the Aeronautical data quality (ADQ) regulation. It will also help the flight operations community to maintain the necessary data.
In order to achieve these objectives, state-of-the-art services and supporting systems, compliant with the System Wide Information Management (SWIM) concepts, will be deployed. While implementing new generation systems, EAIMS will take the legacy systems into consideration so as to ensure a smooth migration and transition to the new service.
The project is in line with activities taking place under the SESAR Deployment Programme (SDP) and the (Pilot) Common Projects ((P)CP). This project is an evolutionary step of our current European AIS Database (EAD).
