The European Response to the Mid-Air Collision   EUROCONTROL is involved in a major effort to improve safety in European air traffic management following the tragic accident on 1st July near Lake Constance. More ...

Recent Papers, Reports and Deliverables   The Experimental Centre was well represented at this year's Digital Avionics Systems Conference. More...

ACAS 2000 Report Released  This report contains statistics and examples of ACAS (Airborne Collision Avoidance System) events that occurred in European airspace during 2000. More...

Opinion - Validation should answer stakeholders' questions   Validation should aim to provide stakeholders with information which supports their decisions about the implementation of ATM concepts. It should answer their questions about usefulness and usability. More...

COSIBA (COmmon SImulation for the BAlkans) reports available   Procedures were developed in preparation for the opening of the Athens "Eleftherios Venizelos" (SPATA) airport. More ... The possible advantages of shared use of airspace in the Balkans between Greece, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Albania and the impact of the Olympic Games of 2004 were evaluated. More ...

Monitoring of Mode S   Monitoring of Mode S airborne transponders and ground radars began in September in preparation for operational use in March 2005. More ...

Satellite-Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) will allow quiet approches in all weather conditions   Trial flights using the EGNOS (European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service) System Test Bed have shown that EGNOS will facilitate curved approaches to Nice airport avoiding inhabited areas in all weather conditions. More ...

LINK2000+ Datalink Real-time Simulation Report Released   RT usage could be reduced by more than 50% through a combination of uplinked frequency change instructions and downlinked monitoring messages, without adversely affecting situational awareness. Other services were found to have potential benefits. More ...

Mediterranean Free Flight (MFF) - First Simulation Results Analysed  The MFF project is studying the medium density transition airspace between the busy core area of Europe and the low density airspace of North Africa. The results of the first real-time simulation, concentrating on the Free Route concept and certain ASAS Spacing applications, have now been analysed and the report completed.  More ...

Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS) Safety Assessment   - a holistic approach to safety management supporting the implementation of GBAS CAT-I precision approaches in ECAC Member States. More ...

eDEP Prototyping Service available in 2003   The EEC has developed eDEP (Eurocontrol Early Demonstration and Evaluation Platform), a light-weight, web-enabled, ATM simulator platform, offering an ideal environment for research and advanced concept projects to rapidly prototype demonstrator applications. In 2003, the eDEP prototyping service will be available. More...

6 States Real-time Simulation in Progress   Following an important modification of two military areas in Germany, the 6-States real-time simulation will study a new airspace structure and route network with the aim of improving capacity and reducing delay in the northern European core area. More ...

Attitudes to Aircraft Annoyance   Antagonism and anger from people living around airports come to a head whenever a new airport planning decision is to be made. Attitudes of residents towards aircraft annoyance are highly different around Europe. Further research is being undertaken to find the factors responsible for these attitudes.   More ...
