Air transport in Europe today is safe and relatively efficient, despite its high density and the complexity of its operations. This is due in no small part to the continent’s air navigation service providers (ANSPs), of which skyguide is one. But what will the picture look like 10 years from now, if air traffic continues to grow at the rates currently projected? Eurocontrol expects traffic volumes to increase by 2.8% a year. If they do, it will not be too long before the growth can no longer be handled using the present airspace structures – or at least not without major delays.
Skyguide, Switzerland’s air navigation service provider, has achieved tangible improvements in both working comfort and ATC capacity since it adopted its new “stripless” air traffic management system in December 2005. To date, experience of the new system has been highly positive; the controllers’ enthusiasm for their new work-tool is a powerful argument for automating this part of their tasks in order to help handle ever-increasing traffic volumes.
The term Aeronautical Information Management (AIM) is relatively new and covers not only the former Aeronautical Information Service (AIS) but also MET and other geospacial aviation data (e.g. Airport data). Its role and the services it offers are already changing significantly. In the future, AIM will be fully based on integrated data management.
