The amount is split into a general (300 million euro) and a cohesion (100 million) envelope.
Indicatively, 80% of the funding available under Priority “Single European Sky – SESAR” will be dedicated to Pilot Common Project (PCP) implementation under SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) coordination.
As from now, Air Traffic Management (ATM) stakeholders can submit PCP-related projects through SDM.
“We see with satisfaction the continuation of the political commitment on SESAR Deployment,” said Massimo Garbini, SDM Managing Director.
“With this third call the role of SDM is even more recognised as an added value through the prioritisation of ATM investments to correctly deploy the Pilot Common Project. SDM will deliver appropriately!”
The main technical driver for this call is the Deployment Programme (DP) developed by SDM in wide consultation with ATM stakeholders.
Based on the “readiness for implementation”, as assessed in the DP, 11 specific implementation families of the DP have been indicated as a priority for the Call (details in annex).
Among those implementation families is the System Wide Information Management (SWIM) for which SDM has designed a SWIM Governance Action Plan.
On top of these 11 families, there is a strong focus on Data Link Services (DLS) in this call which also refers to the DLS Recovery Plan developed by SDM at the request of the EC for the purpose of this specific Call, in accordance with the DLS Implementation Strategy towards Initial Trajectory Information Sharing embedded into the DP.
The indicative financial envelope that is made available for the implementation of the DLS recovery plan is maximum 30% of the to-be-budget allocated to the implementation of the PCP within this Call.
In order to support the operational stakeholders in preparing their DLS related projects in best alignment with the Recovery Plan, SDM is organising a DLS implementation workshop on 20th October.
SDM will also inform the manufacturing industry on 25th October via live webstreaming and invite all stakeholders to attend the SDM 2016 CEF Transport Calls for Proposals Launch Event on 27th October.
