Airbus launches “ProSky” – new ATM subsidiary

Airbus has launched a new subsidiary company, called “Airbus ProSky”, dedicated to the development and support of modern air traffic management (ATM) systems.

Airbus ProSky will become the channel through which Airbus will interact and develop ATM programmes such as “Single European Sky ATM Research” (SESAR) in Europe, as well as NextGen in the US. In particular, for these two ATM programmes, the new company will help accelerate and support the process of their implementation, and link them together by capitalising on the technological, operational and commercial synergies.

Airbus ProSky will also contribute Airbus’ aviation expertise further afield for other nations by working with their Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs), airworthiness authorities and airlines. This will help them achieve the common goal of transforming their ATM systems with the latest technologies and procedures, to achieve the highest operational efficiencies with more direct routings resulting in around 10 percent less aircraft fuel consumption, and significant reductions in CO2 and noise emissions.

The first such undertaking announced by Airbus ProSky was the recent MoU with Chinese authorities for cooperation in ATM, whereby Airbus ProSky will assist the Chinese Air Traffic Management Bureau (ATMB) with the introduction and implementation of new ATM concepts, airspace design, deployment support, training and best practices. Furthermore, authorities in other countries are also exploring the opportunities of working with Airbus ProSky to adopt the principles and know-how developed for ATM systems in Europe and the US.
