The action is part of a Global Project, which aims at achieving higher levels of harmonisation and standardisation between the COOPANS (Cooperation of Air Service Providers) alliance through further development of the COOPANS ATM System platform in line with the TopSky roadmap. Furthermore, it ensures a common baseline onto which SESAR solutions can be deployed more efficiently.
The scope of this Action is to implement 4 software upgrades (builds):
- Build 2.6.1 concerns Controller Pilot Datalink Communication (CPDLC) operation, training improvement and system capacity increase
- Build 2.6.2 for training improvement, Online data interchange interoperability (OLDI IOP) & coordination
- Build 3.1 enables Safety Nets convergence to the TopSky standard product
- Build B3.2 provides CPDLC improvement, system capacity increase and operational improvements
In addition to the four main builds the Action includes a study to assess the possibility for harmonising all COOPANS partners towards a common Java Human Machine Interface (JHMI) and to potentially align with other TopSky users.
