SESAR Deployment Airport Grouping (SDAG)

ABOUT SESAR DEPLOYMENT AIRPORT GROUPING (SDAG)

 

alt

The SESAR-related Deployment Airport Grouping (SDAG) European Economic Interest Group includes a group of 25 airports from among those represented by Airports Council International Europe (ACI EUROPE) and that are in the scope of the Pilot Common Project.

SDAG is committed to ensuring that airports implement enhancements that deliver performance improvement and make the necessary investment; to safeguarding that technologies and procedures have proven benefit; and to delivering coordinated deployment together with air navigation service providers and airlines to allow for rapid return on investment.

 

 

 

HOW SDAG CAN SUPPORT YOUR AIRPORT

 

SDAG support is focused on all European airports and can be summarised under 3 main activities:


1. SESAR Deployment related support

The SESAR Deployment Manager is the official title of the organisation that is coordinating the upgrading of Europe’s air traffic management infrastructure. The main task of the SESAR Deployment Manager is to develop, propose and maintain the deployment of SESAR concepts and technologies and ensure efficient synchronisation and overall coordination of implementation projects, as well as the related investments in line with the Deployment Programme. The tasks of the Deployment Manager are specified in Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 409/2013.


2. Supporting airports in their participation to Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) calls

The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) is a key EU funding instrument to promote growth, jobs and competitiveness through targeted infrastructure investment at European level. It supports the development of high performing, sustainable and efficiently interconnected trans-European networks in the fields of transport, energy and digital services. CEF investments fill the missing links in Europe's energy, transport and digital backbone.

  • SDAG supports Pilot Common Project (PCP) related airports
  • SDAG supports non-PCP-related airports

The Pilot Common Project, as laid down by Regulation (EU) 716/2014, combines coherent technological improvements aiming at enhancing the performance of the European Air Traffic Management system in the short to medium term. It focuses on those technological improvements deemed as mature enough to start and to be fully deployed in the 2014-2026 timeframe requiring a synchronised implementation among the key investors. The Pilot Common Project also fosters the implementation of key ground-ground and air-ground infrastructural building blocks for the future Common Projects.


3. Supporting airports to become compliant

SDAG supports both PCP and non-PCP-related airports to become compliant with all mandatory rules and regulations when modernising their ATM infrastructure.

Supporting services are always tailor-made to the specific needs of your airport.
