10 April 2014

Abu Dhabi, 8 April 2014 - CANSO Director General, Jeff Poole, said that modernisation of ATM is vital to achieve seamless airspace globally. He identified three key drivers for modernising airspace: technology; procedures and processes; and business models. 

For technology, he considered that automation; collaborative decision making and air traffic flow management; and information management were game changers. Under techniques, procedures and processes he highlighted the importance of implementing the ICAO Aviation System Block Upgrades (ASBUs) and singled out PBN and ADS-B as two vital initiatives. Finally, he turned to modernising business models for both States and ANSPs and made some proposals for change.
