4. CNS Advisory Group

In 2020, High Level Group for the implementation of Single European Sky (European Comission – DG MOVE, EASA, EUROCONTROL, SESAR Joint undertaking, SESAR Deployment Manager, The European Defence Agency) initiated CNS Advisory Group in order to develop recommendations to organise, manage and implement the CNS infrastructure based on ATM Master Plants CNS roadmap. The group was formed of experts (members of High-Level Group from SES and EUROCAE). In 2022, the group size increased including members from CABSO, IATA/EBBA, ACI, Expert Group of the Human Dimension from SES and the representative of Industry Consultation Body team.

Until now, the group provided a report with recommendations for CNS, an action pland and CNS Programme Manager Task.

The CNS action plan takes into consideration the development and management of the implementation of a European evolution plan of CNS with 2 components. The first one is the plan rationalise CNS for the decommissioning of the current infrastructure and reaching the Minimum Operation Network (MON) – an infrastructure conventional level (VHT stations, primary radars, NDB) which must be maintained to complete the main infrastructure (Datalink, GNSS and ADS-B) and to assure robustness. MON must be designed at national level by the member states and consolidated having in mind the rationalising component.

The 2nd component is the CNS implementation plan for the new infrastructure based on ATM Master Plan CNS roadmap, prepared according to the approach based on defined performance.

There was proposed the integration of CNS Evolution Plan in the next Edition of ATM Master plan, being the main reference for ATM innovation in Europe and in the Single European Sky legal framework.

The member states will be responsible to approve at national level the rationalisation plans and will be involved in the approval process of the updates of the European ATM Master Plan.

CNS Evolution Plan will be coordinated by the CNS Programme Manager, nominated by European Commission by the 2 identified candidates as being suitable – NM (Network Manager) or SDM (SESAR Deployment Manager).
