The parties discussed on the ATM/ANS service provision related strategic FAB prospects for the next 5 years’ planning cycle, the status of DANUBE FAB procurements, operational activities (e.g. SEEN FRA, seasonal FRA in the Bulgarian airspace, SEEN FRA extension to 24H, LoAs, etc), so as on future technical projects, such as the assessment of the use of space-based ADS-B capabilities in DANUBE FAB.
ROMATSA hosted in Bucharest, Romania, on the 3rd of May 2018, a Space-based ADS-B Workshop with its DANUBE FAB partner, BULATSA and with Aireon. The workshop was a good opportunity for ROMATSA and BULATSA to get first hand input, work progress status and critical operational insight from Aireon, as it is already deploying its space global Air Traffic Surveillance System using a Space-based ADS-B network that makes possible to extend the visibility across the entire planet.
DANUBE FAB had another excellent representation at World ATM Congress in Madrid at its sixth edition in March 2018 as a part of the world’s largest international air traffic management (ATM) exhibition and conference. During the three-day event DANUBE FAB gave the visitors the opportunity to learn more about its current operations and hosted debates on a wide variety of topics, from competence in ATM to cyber security, addressing the current and future challenges within the ATM domain.
The thirteenth DANUBE FAB Social Consultation Forum (SCF) was held in Sinaia, Romania on 15 February 2018. The meeting between BULATSA and ROMATSA social partners and management representatives was focused on recent developments in the EU ATM, joint activities and related social aspects. These regular consultations provide a good mechanism for common understanding, collaboration and trust for the benefit of operational and technical progress in both ANSPs.
