ITY-SPI — Surveillance performance and interoperability

This SES-related implementation objective is derived from Regulation (EU) No 1207/2011 (as amended), laying down requirements on the systems contributing to the provision of surveillance data, their constituents and associated procedures in order to ensure the harmonisation of performance, the interoperability and the efficiency of these systems within the European air traffic management network (EATMN) and for the purpose of civil- military coordination (SPI-IR).

Regulation (EU) No 1207/2011 (as amended) applies to the surveillance chain (as defined in Article 3(6) of the Regulation) constituted of:
(a) airborne surveillance systems, their constituents and associated procedures;
(b) ground-based surveillance systems, their constituents and associated procedures;
(c) surveillance data processing systems, their constituents and associated procedures;
(d) ground-to-ground communications systems used for distribution of surveillance data, their constituents and associated procedures.

Regulation (EU) No 1207/2011 (as amended) applies to all flights operating as general air traffic in accordance with instrument flight rules within the airspace provided for in Article 1(3) of Regulation (EC) No 551/2004 with the exception of Articles 7(3) and 7(4) which apply to all flights operating as general air traffic. This Regulation applies to air traffic service providers which provide air traffic control services based on surveillance data, and to communication, navigation or surveillance service providers which operate systems laid down in paragraph 1 of the Regulation itself.

Regulation (EU) No 1207/2011 (as amended) should be read in conjunction with the existing locally published requirements that European States already have in force on the subject matter.

This SES-related implementation objective does not replace the EU legislation. It aims at facilitating the monitoring and reporting of the implementation of surveillance performance and interoperability in European ATM in line with the EU regulations and through the SES implementation monitoring and reporting mechanism.

The timescales identified in the objective reflect the amendments published through the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1028/2014 published in September 2014.

NOTE FOR MILITARY AUTHORITIES: It is the responsibility of each Military Authority to review this ESSIP Objective IN ITS ENTIRETY and address each of the SloAs that the Military Authority considers RELEVANT for itself. This has to be done on top and above of the review of "MIL" SloAs which identify actions EXCLUSIVE to MIL Authorities

Expected Performance Benefits

Safety
Improved safety through the deployment of surveillance solutions in non-radar areas.
Capacity
Capacity increase through the deployment of surveillance solutions in areas where currently procedural separation is applied.
Operational efficiency
The application of surveillance based separation instead of procedural separation will allow the airspace users to fly more efficient trajectories.
Cost efficiency
