Industrial Research & Validation for Master Plan Phase C Civil-military Interoperability & Coordination


The key objective of this topic is to achieve TRL6 maturity level for civil–military objectives under phase C of the ATM Master Plan 2020, supporting higher levels of civil–military coordination and interoperability.

  • Environment.
  • Capacity.
  • Security.
  • Cost-efficiency.
  • Civil–military coordination.

Detailed Call Description

  • Dynamic airspace configurations (levels 1 and 2). Dynamic airspace configurations and airspace management will improve the use of airspace capacity for both civil and military users by increasing the granularity and flexibility of airspace organisation and design. The objective is to achieve TRL6 for a fully dynamic, agile and cross-border airspace management concept that will take into consideration all capacity/demand aspects and constraints in one seamless process, with a higher level of modularity and flexibility up to the execution phase, all supported by automated tools (PJ.09-W2-44). (further details in the Funding&Tenders page)
  • Improved and harmonised operational air traffic flight plan. This improved flight plan will constitute the first description of the mission trajectory integrated into the ATM network systems for processing and distribution. Interaction between WOCs and the NM in terms of integrated operational air traffic flight plan management will be covered (PJ.07-W2-40).
  • Integration of mission trajectories into network operations. This will involve all the actors concerned (e.g. military airspace users / WOCs, the NM, ATS providers (civil or military) and military control / air defence units) to accommodate individual military airspace user needs and priorities without compromising optimum ATM system outcomes or the performance of any stakeholder. This will include integrating military demand into ATM network operations (Mission trajectory and ARES).
