Madrid, Spain, 6-8 March 2018
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.
This year DANUBE FAB demonstrated its partnership with SESAR in delivering transformation in air traffic management. The series of walking tours at the World ATM Congress in Madrid displayed solutions delivered and deployed across Europe for the benefit of the European Air Traffic Management. Within the SESAR Walking Tour BULATSA and ROMATSA experts showcased various SESAR related projects which represent deliverables in various ATM deployment areas such as Advancing ATM systems to support advanced concepts, advanced air traffic services, connect, communicate, share: enabling technologies in ATM, delivering tomorrow’s ATM platform and Building a user-centric network.
With the objective to enrich the world’s leading air traffic management (ATM) forum with a new platform that focuses specifically on inter-FAB aspects, FABEC invited DANUBE FAB experts to discuss key topics such as traffic volatility and the impact of adverse weather. During this event at the FABEC OPS Theatre in the framework of the World ATM Congress 2018, Veselin Stoyanov, Director for European Programmes, Projects and Strategy at BULATSA, presented DANUBE FAB experience and know-how at the InterFAB Panel – Volatility in ATM: Cases, Challenges, Solutions, whilst Alexandru Hozoc, MET expert and trainer within ROMATSA talked with the other FABs about concrete everyday examples of what is otherwise a theoretical discussion on the adverse weather and ATM.
This event was a great opportunity for DANUBE FAB to catch up with current business partners and touch base on ongoing and upcoming projects. We also were pleased to make a number of new connections and explore future partnerships, and we’re looking forward to continuing this pro-active experience again next year.
