The SESAR Joint Undertaking provided support and sponsorship, while MEGA International provided the necessary tools and enterprise architecture solutions.


The team were awarded the accolade for their creation of the European ATM Architecture (EATMA), which provides a structure and method for the integration of the material developed by SESAR projects. The EATMA is of particular importance to the future of European ATM as it makes it possible to organise and structure the output of SESAR and to identify gaps, overlaps and inconsistencies in its content. It describes what organisations involved in European ATM have to do in order to improve the overall system. After five years of coordinated effort to get the EATMA accepted and understood by the key stakeholders within SESAR, it is now a core part of the management of the content of the current SESAR R&D programme and is considered central for future evolutions.
