Air traffic is expected to nearly double during the next two decades, raising public concern over not only the environmental impact but also how airspace capacity around airports will need to increase. This latter aspect also raises concerns over increased noise pollution and emissions around airports. In addition, industry has its concerns too – in that current ATC systems will not be able to accommodate the projected increase in air traffic.Thankfully, all of the above issues are being addressed by two programmes that are in the process of revamping ATM (or ‘modernising the skies’). These programmes are, in the U.S., the FAA’s Next Generation (NextGen) Air Transport System and, in Europe, the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) programme.
