We were a member of the SESAR WP-E Long-Term and Innovative Research programme.
The study took place as a research contract within the framework of the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) WP-E Long-Term and Innovative Research and was accomplished by a consortium with Transport & Mobility Leuven, Core-Invest and The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The implementation of Single European Sky (SES) initiatives has so far not met expectations. The European ATM service provision is geographically dispersed and providers act as national monopolies. Progress on integrated implementation of new technologies and other innovations has been weak. Current incentive mechanisms for the various parties involved in SES-implementation initiatives have proven inadequate. The changes are regulation-driven and SESAR deployment is focused on centrally steered and synchronized implementation. Both are very difficult in a sector characterized by large heterogeneity and various actors (ANSPs, airlines, airports).
The core of the acceleration study was a series of economic and numerical model simulations of the decision making and optimization mechanisms in ATM
