Eurocontrol update

The Brussels-based European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation Organisation (EUROCONTROL) announced early in February that in the year since it was signed, PENS – the Pan European Network Services Services – initiative has achieved two major milestones.

The first milestone has seen all European Air Database (EAD) services migrated from a dedicated IP network to PENS.

The second important milestone achieved at the end of 2010 was the agreement to create a dedicated PENS infrastructure to support the validation of Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR).
