Description

The iCAS programme aims to procure and deploy a state-of-the-art, harmonised and interoperable air traffic control system which will be rolled out at all DFS control centers of Karlsruhe; Bremen; Munich and Langen and LVNL Amsterdam control centre.

iCAS will be used to control and safely guide more than 3 million flights carrying over 450 million passengers flying through European core airspace per year. The key iCAS components Flight Data Processor, Controller Working Position and Middleware are developed in the iTEC Collaboration together with a total of 7 ANSPs thus enabling a cost efficient procurement as well as ensuring an interoperable system in line with the strategic goals of the Single European Sky.

Additionally, iCAS will be used as a fully integrated civil / military ATS system, thus enabling a more advanced and flexible use of the airspace for both civil and military purposes.


iCAS will enable the introduction of future operational concepts which are based on 4D-trajectory information and which aim to move from today’s tactical ATM operations towards increasingly strategic ATM operations.

iCAS System procurement and Deployment is executed by three DFS/LVNL Implementation Projects 2015_190_AF3, 2016_026_AF3 and 2017_031_AF3 under the coordination of SESAR Deployment Manager. These interrelated implementation initiatives, which are expected to conclude in December 2023, will improve capacity, ATCO productivity and predictability in en-route operations. This will result in improved flight efficiency and, as a result, a positive environmental impact. When going operational, this group of Projects are expected to save 1,1 Billion Euros until 2030.

Disclaimer

A certain number of completed projects are highlighted as it was already possible to provide detailed information on specific benefits brought by these projects. In time, SESAR Deployment Manager will provide such detailed information for every completed project.
