The EC Single European Sky project aims to harmonise air traffic control operations and system throughout Europe to improve efficiency, reducing delays due to air traffic control.

The interoperability requirements provide one set of standards for air traffic control components and systems across Europe – ensuring that the systems of one country are fully compatible with those of another.

Interoperability applies to the following air navigation systems and elements which are part of the European Air Traffic Management Network (EATMN):

  1. Systems and procedures for airspace management.
  2. Systems and procedures for air traffic flow management.
  3. Systems and procedures for air traffic services, in particular flight data processing systems, surveillance data processing systems and human-machine interface systems.
  4. Communications systems and procedures for ground-to-ground, air-to-ground and air-to-air communications.
  5. Navigation systems and procedures.
  6. Surveillance systems and procedures.
  7. Systems and procedures for aeronautical information services.
  8. Systems and procedures for the use of meteorological information.

The following links provide guidance to Air Navigation Service Providers and manufacturers:
