This Implementation project (IP) implemented by PANSA (Polish ANSP) aims to develop PANSA ATM System towards the requirements of the Pilot Common Project (PCP) in two parallel paths:

  • Path 1 – Achievement of the PCP-required functionalities, in particular Direct Routings/Free Route Airspace (DCT/FRA) (AF 3.2.1) in the current P_21 system till 2017/2018;

  • Path 2 – Transfer of the achieved P_21 functionalities to the iTEC-based system and further joint developments within the iTEC Collaboration.

Path 2 is linked to the following Implementation Projects also implemented by PANSA:

  • On-going Implementation Project 2014_131_AF3 (2014-EU-TM-0136_M), iTEC T&V Platform, aiming to deploy the Test and Validation Platform till the end of 2017. The Platform will be used to mitigate the risk of rejecting the iTEC-based system by PANSA air traffic controllers.

  • On-going Implementation Project 2016_087_AF3(that is part of the Action), iTEC-TVP aiming to validate the Test and Validation (T&V) Platform requirements and functionalities combined from iTEC functions and functions of the P_21 system developed till the time of validation. This project is the second step after the Test and Validation Platform deployment (2014_131_AF3, iTEC T&V Platform) and transfers DCT/FRA functionalities (2016_085_AF3, ATM System Upgrade towards FRA) to the PANSA iTEC-based system.

  • Future Implementation Project, iTEC-based PANSA system deployment project, that will use functions and requirements validated in the project 2016_086_AF3, iTEC-TVP.

Oro Navigacija, which is, with PANSA, member of Baltic Functional Airspace Block (FAB) and together with PANSA will access DFS iTEC Collaboration Group, will contribute to the project, especially regarding cross-border DCT and FRA concept. PANSA and Oro Navigacija expert will work together to achieve sufficient level of cooperation between both ATM Systems: future iTEC Based PANSA System and Oro Navigacija iTEC System, improving interoperability. The implementation of a two-phase model in the most important PANSA system change will increase PANSA and Baltic FAB competitiveness in European ATM.
