150, rue Pierre Gilles de Gennes 31670 TOULOUSE – LABEGE FRANCE


Established for over 10 years, Avionics Expo is the leading exhibition and conference for both the commercial and defence sectors, fixed wing and rotorcraft.

EU and US collaboration in SESAR and Next-Gen aims to harmonise and secure Air Traffic Management (ATM) modernisation efforts as drivers of and in support of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Global Air Navigation Plan (GANP) with the Aviation System Block Upgrade (ASBU) programme.

Both SESAR and Next-Gen recognise the need to integrate the air and ground parts of their air traffic management systems by addressing efficiency needs of flight trajectories planning and execution and the seamless sharing of accurate information.

This framework provides a vehicle for the US and Europe to work together towards interoperable standards and in support of efforts towards achievement of ICAO global Harmonisation. For example, a significant achievement in the NextGen and SESAR collaboration is the delivery of an agreed-upon baseline NextGen/SESAR Joint Avionics Roadmap.

ICAO estimates that 120 billion US dollars will be spent on air transportation systems transformation in the next 10 years. While the NextGen and SESAR modernisation programmes account for a large share of this spending in Europe and the US, there are parallel investment initiatives in other regions.
