The Master Plan Level 3 2016 Implementation Plan (ESSIP Plan - Edition 2016) (hereafter the “Implementation Plan”) has been published! This year’s update of the Implementation Plan was driven by three main objectives:
- maintaining full alignment with the ATM Master Plan Level 1 Edition 2015,
- better reflecting the outcomes of SESAR 1,
- and ensuring alignment of the PCP-related part, in close coordination with the SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM), to the best possible extent with the Deployment Programme.
The Implementation Plan – Edition 2016 also leverages on the most up to date Level 2 information of the ATM Master Plan (the “Planning & Architecture view”). The new Implementation Objectives and substantial changes to existing ones result from a wide consultation process with all concerned stakeholders, through both the SJU and EUROCONTROL working arrangements. This included the relevant EUROCONTROL Teams, as well as the Agency Advisory Body (AAB) at their March and June sessions.
The document has been ultimately approved by the Provisional Council of EUROCONTROL in September as well as by the Administrative Board of the SJU (subject to EC final position after SSC opinion) on 20th October 2016.
