Led by DFS (2019 - 2020)

Implementation of a new ATS system at Amsterdam, Bremen, and Munich ACCs.

Sites involved

ACC/UAC : Bremen, Karlsruhe, Langen, Munich

Project description

Cut-over for Langen ACC after 2020. iCAS which will enable DFS, LVNL and RNLAF to deploy up to 18 so-called Families as laid down by the SESAR Deployment Manager within the Deployment Programme 2015. It is a central Pilot Common Project (EU No. 716/2014) implementation project, foreseen for implementation under the framework of the SESAR Deployment Manager. Therewith, deploying advanced operational concepts such as but not limited to Free Route, Extended Arrival Management and extended information exchange with other systems / partners in a timely, coordinated and synchronized effort to raise capacity, improve safety and cutting costs and thus enabling a significant performance increase at DFS and LVNL. Furthermore, iCAS enables improved flight efficiencies in fuel and in time for the airspace users.
Furthermore, the iCAS System deployed at Karlsruhe UAC by project iCAS I will be upgraded.
It is a central Pilot Common Project (EU No. 716/2014) implementation project, foreseen for implementation under the framework of the SESAR Deployment Manager.
