Airbus’ New ATM Subsidiary

AIRBUS HAS launched a new subsidiary company – Airbus ProSky – which is dedicated to the development and support of modern ATM systems.  It will become the channel through which Airbus will interact and develop ATM programmes such as the ‘Single European Sky ATM Research’ in Europe, as well as NextGen in the US.  The new company will also help to accelerate and support the process of their implementation, and link them together by capitalising on the technological, operational and commercial synergies.
The first such undertaking announced by the company has been a MoU with Chinese authorities for co-operation in ATM, assisting the Chinese Air Traffic Management Bureau with the implementation of new ATM concepts, airspace design, deployment support, training and best practices.
