High-quality data communications capabilities in the form of the datalink technology are essential enablers for the modernisation of air traf c control and to achieve SESAR performance bene ts. The current implementation did not provide the expected results and some studies were conducted to investigate the issues, the last and most relevant is the so-called ELSA study performed under SESAR JU coordination. On the basis of the ELSA study, the SESAR DM developed the DP 2016 DLS Deployment Strategy and the DLS Recovery Plan: a fully consulted roadmap, published on DG MOVE website, guiding content and timewise the full and effective DLS deployment in Europe. In addition, on 18 November the SESAR Deployment Manager received by the European Commission the mandate as Data Link Services Implementation project manager and is now running at full speed to implement all the actions described in DP 2016.
