Pilot Common Project (PCP) and SESAR deployment [GEN-PCP]

Classroom Course
The modernisation of Europe’s Air Traffic Management (ATM) networks is crucial for the sustainability of European aviation and the forecasted increase in air traffic by 2035.
SESAR’s goal is to define, develop, and deploy the technological solutions needed to increase the performance of Europe’s ATM system.
The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) was established end 2014 under the oversight of the Policy Level led by the European Commission.  It is responsible for the Management Level of the SESAR deployment governance, for the coordination of the implementation of the most essential SESAR operational improvements through the concept of Common Projects. A Common Project is an extraction from the  European ATM Master Plan, based on SESAR Solutions to be deployed in a synchronized and timely manner across Europe, translated into an European Law. Whilst the European ATM Master Plan is indicative, a Common Project binds EU Member States and their operational stakeholders.
This course focuses on the:
- Common projects, which aim to deploy ATM functionalities that are considered to be essential contributors to the improvement of the Union's ATM performance. For this purpose, they group those essential ATM functionalities defined in the ATM Master Plan that :
are mature for implementation;demonstrate to have a positive global business case for the European ATM network, and require a synchronised deployment.

- The deployment programme, which translates the common projects into detailed deployment activities (implementation projects) that define how common projects should be implemented.
- The Governance mechanisms that ensure a timely, synchronised and coordinated deployment of the SESAR concept of operations and that involves all stakeholders and the relevant EU and Single Sky bodies.
- INEA Calls, to support the coordination and the implementation of common projects.
- The 6 ATM Functionalities
