Air Traffic Technology International is proud to announce the first in a series of Virtual Roundtable events for ANSPs that will provide a forum to exchange the latest ideas and information about Air Traffic Management.

During these challenging times many ANSPs have been forced to look closely at how they allocate resources for technology investment and modernization.

This roundtable will seek to answer the question: “What does the future look like for ANSPs and what technologies will matter the most to them in the future?”

Industry leaders on this high-level roundtable will discuss the new developments and innovations ANSPs consider vital to delivering an efficient and integrated airspace as we learn to live with the Covid-19 virus.

Using real world case studies and examples, our panel of experts will describe the projects and R&D they are investing in to build a more integrated and efficient airspace to support the aviation sector’s return to growth and the latest innovations.

Attendees will learn about the latest developments in ATC systems and how IT and communications technologies are enabling a more integrated and efficient management with increased digitalization. The roundtable will discuss the steps ANSPs are taking to prepare for the large amount of unmanned aircraft to be integrated into the airspace in the future, as well the latest airspace optimization techniques, and remote towers.

Topics to be covered include:
• Digitalization in ATM, including upgrades in IT & communications infrastructure such as cloud / web systems
• Airspace management efficiency improvements and regulation
• Remote towers
• Technology and methodologies to facilitate the safe and efficient integration of unmanned drones into airspace (such as UTM / U-Space program)
