    Whom can I contact when I have questions on my own participation in the “deployment journey” or if I would like to invite representatives of the SESAR Deployment Manager to present in my own company/institution on SESAR deployment?

      Please contact one of our Liaison Officers. They are your points of entry to SDM. They will provide you with a first level of answer and, if needed, will provide you with the details of the right interlocutor within the SESAR Deployment Manager. In case you belong to one of the entities that will be linked to the SESAR Deployment Manager via a cooperative arrangement, please contact our Cooperative Arrangements Manager, Servane Woff-Lhuissier. On this website, you will find information on the SESAR Deployment Manager, points of contact and information on many subjects related to deployment.
