The most important collaborative projects involving LFV for the purpose of achieving future goals for flight safety, cost effectiveness and environment are described below.
The air navigation services in Sweden and Denmark have long worked together to create joint solutions for the benefit of the aviation industry, in line with European efforts toward Single European Sky. This has happened within the framework of the NUAC project. From 1 july 2012 NUAC is running the three ATCCs in Copenhagen, Malmoe and Stockholm and provides en route operations to DK-SE Functional Airspace Block plus delivers Operationell Support accordingly to formal agreements with Naviair and LFV.
SESAR is the EU project that will develop technical and operational prerequisites for the common European airspace (SES – Single European Sky).
COOPANS (COOPeration between ANS-providers) is a collaboration between suppliers of air navigation services that have the same type of equipment plus the system supplier Thales. The collaboration began in 2006. LFV, Naviair (Denmark), IAA (Ireland), Austrocontrol (Austria), Croatia Control ltd (Croatia) and the supplier Thales are members. The purpose is to jointly develop the next generation of flight traffic control systems plus a technical platform with the possibility of national adaptations.
Borealis is an alliance of nine European providers of air traffic services. The alliance is made up of Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
Borealis aims to facilitate cooperation between the Members, for the benefits of the customers, on commercially-recognized business partnering principles that will make a contribution to the operational and financial performance of the members´ air traffic services, and the achievement of Single European Sky and ICAO performance targets.
The A6 is an alliance of some of the largest European Air Navigation Service Providers. Its aim is to drive the modernisation of the European ATM network within the SESAR programme for the benefit of our customers. The A6 is formed of the six ANSP members of the SESAR JU: Spain, France, UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Estonia. Collectively the A6 alliance control over 70% of European air traffic and 72% of the investment in the European Air Traffic Management infrastructure of the future.
JOINT PROGRAMME OFFICE
Joint Programme Office (JPO) is an organisation of cooperation between LFV, Naviair and NUAC. The objective is to run common programs which create added value for all three organisations, while keeping the high quality level standards and at the same time becoming more efficient. JPO’s task is to analyse, catalyse and coordinate technical initiatives across sites and countries – which contribute to lowering the cost bases in LFV and Naviair for future development. JPO reports to Naviair and LFVs top level management and is anchored as a strategic initiative.
