Airspace surveillance systems – past, present and future

Issue 4 2012  •  1 August 2012  •  Jacques Dopagne, Director Network Management, EUROCONTROL

The Air Traffic Management (ATM) Surveillance Tracker and Server (ARTAS) is one of the most advanced surveillance data processing systems in the world, underpinning ATM network safety and efficiency. The concept emerged in the early-90s, long before the Single European Sky (SES) appeared. It was created by a community of international experts who dreamed of abolishing the limits that slowed down air traffic. They saw that the radar data processing systems used then were all autonomous, with a huge variation in process sophistication and performance. This difference in standards made it necessary to have large separation minima between aircraft and so played no small part in contributing to congestion. They dreamed of an interlocking system, rather like LEGO®, in which all the ACCs’ surveillance systems were linked.
