  • SESAR Deployment Manager - Inmarsat signed a Memorandum of Understanding

Signature MoU SDM-Inmarsat

Great to renovate – through this signing – the very good collaboration between SESAR Deployment Manager and the industry, with a critical player like Inmarsat.

Our fruitful cooperation has been in place for years but today we are proud to give it a new framework by signing a formal agreement. The next months and years will be extremely important to define the future of Air/Ground connectivity and the transition to Trajectory Based Operations and we believe Inmarsat will help us in defining the most realistic and ambitious roadmap to achieve this common goal.
