Operational Concept Overview

The SESAR target concept is to achieve a high performing ATM system based on enabling airspace users to fly their optimum trajectories. To realise this concept, whilst supporting the overall ambition, a number of Essential Operational Changes and Key R&D activities have been identified. SESAR Key Features identify the main strategic orientations through which the changes evolve from Pre-SESAR through Essential Operational Changes (comprising PCP Essential Operational Changes and New Essential Operational Changes) together with Key R&D activities to support the Performance Ambition.

Each Essential Operational Change is shown in relation to the Operating Environment for which it provides the most benefit.
