Advanced Air Traffic Management

Working toward a transformational air traffic management system

The Boeing vision of a transformational system is based on satellite navigation that takes advantage of sophisticated airplane flight management systems and other advanced technologies. Key elements of the future transformational system include digital command and control, trajectory-based operations, satellite-enabled technology and the integration of ground systems that support the capabilities of modern airplanes and secure network-centric operations. Boeing is committed to transforming the ATM system into a one that can meet expanding needs for decades to come.

To advance the required technologies needed for a transformational system, Boeing is involved in numerous global research and development contracts. They include, most notably, the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) and System-Wide Information Management (SWIM) with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) in Europe.
