Implementing Partners

Leader: DFS


To deploy the Family 5.2.2 as laid down by the SESAR Deployment Manager within the Deployment Programme 2015 on the basis of implementing the Pilot-Common-Project Regulation EU No. 716/2014. Therewith, deploying stakeholder SWIM infrastructure components for information exchange in a timely, coordinated and synchronized effort to raise capacity, improve safety and cutting costs while minimizing aviation's environmental footprint.

Specifically, the present project will achieve the following objective:,Ensure that the operational benefits of SWIM are realised by enabling DFS systems to provide and consume SWIM services deployed on the "Yellow profile" SWIM infrastructure. Ensure that DFS is able to satisfy the legal provisions of EU No. 716/2014 by

  • providing the DFS contribution to the SWIM service infrastructure subject to the requirements and standards in the PCP Implementing Rule.

  • subjecting all industrialization and operations to pertinent requirements of the Interoperability Implementing Rule EU No. 552/2004.

  • fully integrating with the SWIM "Common Components" applicable to the "Yellow Profile". Ensure cost efficiency of SWIM deployment by:
    (a) providing a single DFS implementation of SWIM "Yellow Profile" technology that

  • integrates into the DFS systems operations infrastructure and

  • minimises integration cost by providing an open standard integration platform to the DFS ATM systems.
    (b) coordinating the DFS internal SWIM deployment activities to realise synergies
    (c) ensuring efficient and effective communications with DFS in "Yellow Profile" matters by establishing a clear DFS unique point of access (gateway) to external SWIM Stakeholders. Minimize risk and contribute to timeliness of the European SWIM implementation effort by continuous coordination of deployment activities with all external implementation initiative stakeholders

  • SWIM service partners (NM, ANSPs, MET providers, ...)

  • SWIM Governance

  • SWIM "Common Components" providers
    This includes activities ranging from planning coordination to day-to-day cooperation during technical integration and transition.
