TRANSITIONAL REGIME FOR ADS-B AIRBORNE STAKEHOLDERS APPROVED AND IMPLEMENTATION DEADLINE POSTPONED BY 6 MONTHS DUE TO COVID-19


Brussels, Belgium, Thursday 30th April 2020 – Today the European Commission published in the Official Journal of the European Union the long- anticipated amendment of regulations no 1206/2011 (Aircraft ID for surveillance) and 1207/2011 (Surveillance Performance and Interoperability) related to Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B). The new Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/587 can be reached here.

ADS-B makes it possible to periodically broadcast aircraft information, such as identity, speed or position, derived from on-board systems (e.g. determined via satellite), thus enabling the aircraft to be tracked from the ground for surveillance purposes.

The amendment of this regulation is of great importance to airspace users and air navigation service providers alike. It provides a much-appreciated transitional regime for the introduction of ADS-B Out and Mode S EHS functionalities in the airborne domain by establishing several exemption clauses and specifying the method for asserting an exemption in the ATC flight plan. Air navigation service providers will appreciate the changes which greatly simplify the arrangements for sharing of surveillance data between providers.  For a detailed analysis see ads-b-europe.eu.

Furthermore, in recognition of the severity of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the aviation industry, the European Commission has postponed the due date to equip planes with Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast technology from 7 June to 7 December 2020. (read more here)

About SESAR Deployment Manager

The Single European Sky’s ATM Research project, “SESAR”, is one of the most ambitious modernisation projects launched by the European Union, contributing to the implementation of the Single European Sky. SESAR’s goal is to define, develop and deploy the technological solutions needed to increase the performance and digitalisation of Europe’s ATM system in the most cost-, flight-efficient and environmentally friendly conditions.

The adoption of the Reg. (EU) n. 716/2014 (Pilot Common Project or “PCP”), the establishment of the SESAR Deployment Manager as per Reg. (EU) n. 409/2013, as well as the subsequent elaboration of the initial SESAR Deployment Programme, marked all together a key step towards the Deployment Phase of SESAR. More than six years after the beginning of this deployment phase in 2014, the modernisation of the European ATM systems and infrastructure is an operational reality with over 180 projects in operation and over 160 ongoing. More importantly, it is delivering its expected performance benefits to the aviation community, its stakeholders and in turn to European passengers, citizens and economy benefitting the #EUGreenDeal. On XX/02/2021, the Common Project One or CP1 regulation was published, ensuring a smooth continuation of sustainable Air Traffic Management modernisation and digitalisation through SESAR deployment.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
