About 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.The SDM function is performed by the SESAR Deployment Alliance (SDA). The SDA is a “Not-for-Profit” International Association (AISBL) set-up under Belgian Law and composed of leading airlines, airports and air navigation service providers –the managers and users of Europe’s airspace. They are committed to the principle of the Single European Sky and to deploying the technologies that will deliver it to create customer and environmental efficiencies.


SESAR DM’s first 112 completed ATM projects across Europe will save 12 million flight minutes equating to EUR484m savings, and will generate over EUR10 billion performance benefits by 2030. SESAR DM has already overseen the completion of 112 ATM projects across Europe, which are part of the Single European Sky Initiative (SES),  launched by the European Commission (EC) in 2004 to modernise Europe’s ATM system. There are 237 other projects in progress that will, once completed, bring additional performance benefits to the European passengers, citizens and economy. (figures June 2019)
