In the presence of the European Commission, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and EUROCONTROL signed a new cooperation agreement towards the end of September. The objective of the agreement is to jointly contribute to the implementation of European Union GNSS policies as they apply to the field of aviation.
As Europe’s skies and major airports become increasingly congested, there is need for Air Traffic Management (ATM) technologies to evolve from groundbased infrastructures to more advanced systems based on new technologies. EUROCONTROL and the GSA have a shared objective in developing and exploiting European GNSS technology to improve accessibility, efficiency and safety to European operators, pilots and airports.
