R E P OR T F RO M THE EUR O C AE P R ESI DEN T

2018 marked further progress for EUROCAE, which I am glad to highlight in this report. EUROCAE has grown to more than 270 members globally, and 37 active working groups are actively supported by approximately 2.000 registered experts nominated by our members. It is the knowledge and experience of these many experts, in a broad variety of fields, that constitute the main ingredients for the successful delivery of consensus based high-quality aviation standards. The 2019 EUROCAE Symposium was held on 2 ­ 5-26 April at ENAC in Toulouse. The exciting agenda put together by our Team with the support of key local stakeholders has featured some of the most topical developments in aviation, grouped under six dynamic sessions: New vehicles and autonomy trends in aviation; Connectivity and digital services; Innovative ATM solutions; Airport developments; Innovative aircraft systems; Satellite-based services. Through various panel discussions and presentations, the speakers have addressed recent and forecasted developments in the industry and emphasised how (much) standardisation plays a role in supporting the safe and efficient evolution of aviation. Concomitant with the Symposium, EUROCAE held its 56th General Assembly meeting. The innovative spirit that animated the Symposium extended across to our formal proceedings! Electronic voting and live broadcasting were introduced for the first time, further improving the effectiveness of the governance and offering new opportunities for our Members to take part in the event, when unable to be physically present.

The Symposium also featured the EUROCAE Awards’ Night, a now traditional event introduced some years ago to celebrate the outstanding dedication of the voluntary workforce upon which the effectiveness of our Organisation depends.­ The exceptional performance of a number of individual experts made available by our Members was gratefully recognised. Additional initiatives were launched to meet emerging needs, which further diversify our standard-making activity, with more still to come. Thus, WG-69 has developed and published a set of three standards as the basis for Airport CDM implementation. A WG was added to tackle further A-CDM activities and another one for HTAWS. Furthermore, the EUROCAE training programme has consolidated its position and reputation as a well- recognised framework in Europe and beyond. The range of training areas will further expand in the years to come. A key development, meant to achieve a fasterto-market delivery of standards, took the form of a pilot project for a process based on a reduced timeframe, lighter structure and overhead and increased flexibility and reactivity, yet adapted our work programme. To obtain first-hand experience and to validate this lean process approach, EASA has proposed to use this pilot to develop a set of V-TOL standards, for a full-scale compliance demonstration. Finally, it is rejoicing to report that the EUROCAE Team is continuously getting stronger, to better serve our members and support the Working Group activities. My warmest thanks go to the Secretariat team for their indefectible commitment, valuable contribution and high professionalism under the leadership of the Secretary General.

REPOR T FROM TH E COUN CIL CHA I R

On behalf of the EUROCAE Council, it is my pleasure and honor to present you this report.

pliance. Together with EASA we will work on this as a pilot project and develop a set of standards for VTOLs, and this tentative is already encountering significant success.

First of all, I am pleased to report that our membership has increased again this year by more than 15%, bringing us to over 270 members. This positive trend is expected to be maintained, based on several new activities we are planning or that are already in the pipeline.

At the beginning of 2019 EUROCAE signed another Grant Agreement with the European Commission, DG MOVE in support of Single European Sky targets and is currently in contact with DG GROW to extend our support to the European Commission in the area of EGNSS.

Regarding Working Groups (WGs), since a year ago, EUROCAE has set up two new WGs, namely WG-110 Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning Systems (HTAWS), and WG-111 Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM). This brings the total of active WGs to 37. We also noticed numerous new activities being undertaken within the other, already active, WGs. Furthermore and fully aligned with our Technical Work Program EUROCAE is preparing the creation of a new WG in the strategic area of Artificial Intelligence. Amongst the other achievements of 2018, we have accelerated the process to create and launch a new Working Group. Such optimization gives us the possibility to act faster and more effectively to your needs and requirements. In addition, we have further reduced the time from Council Approval until the official publication of EDs, while increasing the quality of the documents, by having the open consultation process fully open to all stakeholders through the new IT system. 23 EDs have been approved by the Council and been published, and many more are ongoing and have been submitted to the Open Consultation since a year ago. This amounts to 10% of the total number of EDs EUROCAE has published.

DG MOVE has further expanded the mandate under the new Grant Agreement to include Unmanned Aircraft Systems and an additional coordination group focusing on Cybersecurity for aviation. EUROCAE was tasked by the Commission to chair and run all three coordination groups, which has put us in the center of aviation standards, but also fully integrated us as a player in the bigger picture of the European aviation landscape. EUROCAE increased also its visibility through participation to many events, seminars and visits all over the world, obviously in Europe but also in the US, Asia, and Pacific region, both in a proactive manner and following invitations. This is strongly contributing in the long term to the recognition of EUROCAE material as international standards.

These improvements were performed without jeopardising the quality and the maturity of the EUROCAE documents, thanks to the application and enforcement of our Quality Management System.

Lastly, I would like to praise the excellent results the Secretariat has reached in the past years. For this, I would like to thank the Secretary General, Christian Schleifer and the whole EUROCAE team that made this possible through their dedication and hard work. In particular the 2019 EUROCAE Symposium and General Assembly was a great success with record participation and sponsoring, thanks to the engagement and perfect organisation from the full EUROCAE team. As another example this engagement allowed developing and managing new initiatives such as the training program, which proved very successful: with five training sessions in 2018 and eight scheduled for 2019, with additional courses under development.

Just recently the Council has also approved a pilot project to use a “lean standard development process”: we adapt our process, while maintaining the criteria of quality for our products in order to support fast growing and emerging markets. Those items are requiring to develop quickly a set of standards to complement certification specifications with acceptable means of com­

R E P OR T F RO M THE SEC R ETARY G ENER AL

Dear EUROCAE Members, Partners and Friends, As I am starting my 6th year with EUROCAE, I take pride in writing you to report about the achievements of our organisation and of our team in the past year, while providing an outlook of the upcoming activities, too. Since our last Annual Report, EUROCAE has created two new Working Groups, namely WG-110 Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning Systems (HTAWS), and WG-111 Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM). These new activities have been approved by the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and are a direct reflection of the direction set in the Technical Work Programme (TWP), which is available publicly on our website and I invite you to read through it. In this respect I want to highlight the outstanding work the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has done over the last year, given the forward looking and strategic role it is playing for EUROCAE. EUROCAE has published 20 documents in 2018. This makes last year one of our most productive ones, and 2019 looks equally promising. Also, EUROCAE has recognised the need for a periodic review of EUROCAE Documents (EDs) in order to ensure our documents reflect the current state of the art, to maintain workable documentation compatible with current needs and practices, and to guarantee the high level of quality we are providing to the industry. In January 2019 it is the second time we ran this important exercise following the introduction of the ED review process in 2018. The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has confirmed all EDs due end2018 for review. We were pleased to note that the ED review process has been reconfirmed and the quality assurance stemming from this process was validated. The training programme we have set up and are continuing to develop proved a very good investment. Aviation Cyber Security training was launched beginning of 2018, with all four trainings fully booked, and therefore well attended, with participants from across the aviation spectrum and across the world. In 2019, we have another four training sessions scheduled, and the first one 6  EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

in March was also fully booked. The feedback was very good, and we have received some useful comments and inputs from the participants, which we implemented for the following trainings. The Aviation Software Standards training was launched end of 2018 and was also sold out, too. An improvement upgrade of this training was subsequently performed, taking into account the feedback from trainees from the November and January sessions. EUROCAE brand visibility is an area we are working, and focusing, on. We have drafted a PR and Communication strategy, with two main targets: to enhance the EUROCAE brand and activity visibility and to start engaging to generate awareness about EUROCAE activity. The main tools and actions we are using to achieve this include posting news and maximising the NEWSblog distribution, raising awareness via the Broadcast and the Annual Report, as well as adding Twitter as new communication channel and LinkedIn as communication tool. The stakeholder engagement plan we have designed aligns with this strategy, and we plan to continue this activity that we started three years ago by increasing our presence at selected events, where we can better inform the aviation community about our activities and the benefits of being an EUROCAE member. Our membership expanded more and more: not only have we grown more than 15% last year, but nearly all the associations representing key aviation stakeholders and all areas and domains of aviation are now EUROCAE members. Adding to brand recognition, the presence of EUROCAE at the World ATM Congress 2019 as part of the European village – “Europe for aviation” – is a further step towards an enhanced cooperation between key aviation stakeholders at European level, such as SESAR Joint Undertaking, SESAR Deployment Manager, European Defense Agency, INEA, EASA, EUROCONTROL, EC SES, and of course the European Commission. On the global level we participated to the last ICAO Air Navigation Conference, where we presented on behalf of Arinc, RTCA, SAE and EUROCAE WP/55 to support ICAO’s performance based approach in developing ICAO provisions supported and complemented by industry standards, developed


REPOR T FROM TH E SECRETA RY GEN ER A L

by recognised SDOs, like EUROCAE. We work closely with ICAO and the other Standards Round Table members and expect to further address matters of interest to our members at the global level, to advance the global interoperability and worldwide harmonisation agenda in the light of an increased use of performance based regulations complemented by industry standards. Likewise, the upcoming ICAO Assembly in Montreal is another major event EUROCAE will be actively participating to this coming fall. EUROCAE was also recognised by the World Trade Organisation (WTO) as an SDO following the Code of Good Practice for the development of standards. The scope of this Code of Good Practice is to fight against discrimination and duplication, guarantee openness to comments and complaints, accessibility of the published standards and transparency of the process. This is all done to the benefit that technical regulations and standards are not used as trade barriers. Thus, EUROCAE is now listed under the European SDOs. The 2019 EUROCAE Symposium took place on 25-26 April in Toulouse, hosted by École Nationale de l’Aviation Civile (ENAC). Aside from being located at one of the most vibrant manufacturing hubs in the aviation world – Toulouse – the Symposium brought together representatives from key stakeholders in Toulouse and around the world. The exciting agenda our team has put together provided attendees with an overview of the most pressing aviation questions – as the panels provided possible answers/solutions. I take this opportunity to convey on behalf of EUROCAE our sincere thanks to all the sponsors that made this event possible. The ensuing Award Night has recognised the tremendous contribution our organisation receives from the experts that contribute time, resources and energy to develop industry standards under the EUROCAE umbrella. In conjunction with the symposium we held our 56th General Assembly, also at the ENAC premises. All our members were invited to join, and this year our President, Francis Schubert decided to invite also limited members and partners. The General Assembly had the following agenda: to approve the strategy proposed by the Council; to elect the

President and the Council members; to approves the accounts of the ending year and the maximum value for the Full Members’ subscriptions, which we left unchanged for the third year now. Also new was the opportunity to livestream the General Assembly, via a link we provided to our members ahead of the meeting. You might have seen that the new IT infrastructure is now fully deployed and we have automated some of our processes, mainly the administration of WGs and meetings and to support the whole process to develop standards. This has allowed us to keep the demand for administrative support unchanged, even though we grew by nearly 100% in only 6 years. The investments in the IT infrastructure, streamlining and automating procedures and processes and efficiency projects have shown to be effective. Therefore, we started to further enhance and develop our process management system, as we are coming now close to also complying with a full quality management system. Last but not least I would like to acknowledge the outstanding performance of all the members of my team, who has enabled these achievements. The EUROCAE team has also become stronger, to better serve our members and support the Working Group activities. Thus, in addition to the Technical Programme Manager (TPM) we hired last year in May, we have added a part time Technical Secretary, in the area of Unmanned Aircraft Systems to support the WG-105 activities. The Technical Secretary’s role is to ensure a strong link with stakeholders (regulators, industry) to proactively update the TWP with deliverables which complement the regulatory framework with fit for purpose and timely standards. I look forward to yet another year of growth for EUROCAE, at your service as our valued Members.

EUROCAE is

EUROCAE does

...a non-profit organisation which was founded in Lucerne (Switzerland) in 1963 to provide a European forum for resolving technical problems with electronic equipment for air transport.

...develop technical specifications for the industry and in support of European and global regulations, aiming to increase safety, market potential, facilitate interoperability and encourage technological development in the interest of its European and global stakeholders.

EUROCAE deals exclusively with aviation standardisation (Airborne and Ground Systems and Equipment) and related documents as required for use in the regulation of aviation equipment and systems. EUROCAE is an association composed of members who are all specialised in one or several technical fields of Aeronautics and many of them are considered to be among world’s leaders in their domain. EUROCAE is governed by a Constitution and functions according to procedures resulting from more than 50 years of experience and expertise in the development of aviation standards.

8  EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

To develop EUROCAE Documents (EDs), EUROCAE organises Working Groups (WGs) to which members delegate experts working on a voluntary basis. In general WG members come from the association membership. The development of EUROCAE Documents is governed by a well-proven core process promoting team work, excellence, industry buy-in and consensus while ensuring safety. To date, EUROCAE has published more than 250 EDs, which are recognised worldwide as high quality and state-of-the-art standards.


OV ERV I EW

EUROCAE has ...put in place a unique structure, the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), which brings together leading experts of all stakeholder categories represented in aviation. The role of the TAC is to monitor the consistency and coherence of the EUROCAE strategic work programme and to advise on on-going and future activities. Over 2.000 experts designated by EUROCAE Members are currently collaborating in 37 active Working Groups to revise or develop future EDs. EUROCAE currently has over 270 Members, with full or limited membership, including manufacturers, service providers, regulators, research institutes and international organisations. EUROCAE membership is open to organisations and industries worldwide. EUROCAE has a 100% Subsidiary “EUROCAE Communication”. This limited liability company, financially and legally independent from the Association, is dealing with four commercial activities:

}} Sales of ED documents. }} Contracts with external companies (covering engineering studies and/or services in relation with EUROCAE’s domains of activities, etc.). }} Event organisation. It concerns dedicated te­­ch­­ ni­cal workshops, symposia (such as the EUROCAE annual Symposium, usually accom­ panying the General Assembly) and conferences. }} Training, in cooperation with the best experts in their fields to provide with high-quality training courses. }} EUROCAE has an elected President. It is go­ver­ned by an elected Council and managed by a General Secretariat headquartered in the Paris area, France.

Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) May 2018 - April 2019 The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) advises the Council on technical, operational and, on request, on policy matters. TAC is a specific body, composed of 12 specialist members representing the different groups of stakeholders. The Secretariat is also a key participant in the TAC, complementing the overall perspective and ensuring a tight link with the Working Groups. TAC ensures that prospective work aligns with EUROCAE members’ interests from the outset, guaranteeing a high technical quality of the standards, fit for purpose and available when needed.

As it includes representatives of key European aeronautical organisations, TAC is well-placed to ensure alignment of EUROCAE activities with external entities and regulatory bodies. It places activities within the context of European SES developments and coordinates transatlantic efforts with our main partner organisations in support of ICAO roadmaps and global interoperability.

TAC gives advices to the Council and provides technical recommendations on standardisation activities. It elaborates and maintains the EUROCAE Technical Work Programme, as the core guideline for future EUROCAE activities.

D O M A I N S OF ACTI VI TY

EUROCAE Domains of Activity } AVIONICS (NON-CNS)

} AIRPORTS

This domain encompasses all standardisation activities which are related to on-board equipment and systems without those in interaction with the external world (which are part of the CNS Domain). In addition, this Domain also encompasses standardisation activities related to the various system development activities.

As airports are an important stakeholder in the ATM system, it is necessary to facilitate the integration of airports in the ATM system in support of the European concept of operations. In addition, airports are also key economical players in their region where modernisation of their infrastructure is expected together with their expansion.

} CNS (COMMUNICATION, NAVIGATION, SURVEILLANCE, DATALINK APPLICATIONS)

} SWIM (SYSTEM WIDE INFORMATION MANAGEMENT)

This domain encompasses all standardisation activities which are related to on-board and ground equipment and systems which are in interaction with the external world for Communications, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS). Activities related to Datalink are also considered as part of this Domain.

} ATM The following EUROCAE activities are concerned by the ATM Domain: Flight Data Processing (FDP) Interoperability; Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) for ATM; and Interoperability of ATM Validation Platforms.

14  EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

Through the SESAR Programme, Europe has made great progress on defining, developing and validating SWIM.

} SECURITY The Aeronautical Systems Security (ASS) activity addresses the security concerns for Aeronautical Information Systems (AIS) within aircraft as much as their supporting infrastructure and supply chain.

} AERONAUTICAL INFORMATION SERVICES (AIS) / METEOROLOGICAL (MET) SERVICES The scope of the activities within this domain includes the establishment of user requirements for aeronautical data as well as standard generic data format for the transfer of geographic information/ data in digital form between different users, systems and locations.


D OMA IN S OF A CTI V I T Y

} UAS & GENERAL AVIATION

} MISCELLANEOUS

It has been realised that the specific needs of general aviation have been left aside when developing or updating the aviation system. Now it has been recognised that several activities are on their way to adopt some systems and regulations better to the needs of the GA community. A similar situation exists for the integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The integration of those aircraft into the existing ATM system needs industry standards to achieve worldwide harmonisation.

The scope of this Domain is to accommodate activities which do not fit 100% into other domains, but are clearly within the scope of EUROCAE, such as Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) or space.

PA R T N E RS

ACI EUROPE and EUROCAE engage in closer cooperation ACI EUROPE is delighted to have become a member of EUROCAE this year, bringing the voice of airports to the important work being done on standardisation in civil aviation. The technical challenges faced by the aviation industry are numerous - airports wish be involved in the work to address them, so as to deliver technical solutions which benefit all stakeholders and contribute to more efficient, sustainable, safe and secure operations. Just some examples of the work to be done: the protection of airports from non-compliant drones and safe integration of drones in airport operations; improving runway throughput and optimising airspace capacity through new technologies; addressing the cybersecurity threats faced by airports; and ensuring that technical development and sustainability go hand in hand. Airports can make a particular contribution in this regard, as nodes in the airspace network and providers of vital coordination on the ground. We therefore look forward to joining in EUROCAE Working Groups, to contribute to the technical work and wider cooperation between our two organisations.

As such, ACI EUROPE will be able to transmit to its membership network the vital work being done by EUROCAE in developing internationally-recognised ground and airborne system and equipment standards for civil aviation. EUROCAE will have access to the expertise of ACI EUROPE’s Technical and Operational Safety Committee, which brings together top experts in safety management, airport operations, ATM and other technical domains - to contribute to the work of airports in this broad field. ACI EUROPE represents over 500 airports in 45 European countries. Our members facilitate over 90% of commercial air traffic in Europe, namely 2.3 billion passengers, and over 20 million tonnes of freight and more than 23 million aircraft movements. These airports contribute to the employment of 12.3 million people, generating €675 billion each year (4.1%) of GDP in Europe. Furthermore, through ACI World, we have access to a wider global network of 1,960 airports in 176 countries. It is therefore with great pleasure that ACI EUROPE becomes involved in the work of EUROCAE, and likewise we look forward to involving EUROCAE in the work of our committees, and to working together in pursuit of a technical framework for aviation which delivers for airports

Under the Memorandum of Understanding which we will sign at the EUROCAE Symposium in Toulouse in April 2019, ACI EUROPE and EUROCAE plan to share expertise and best practice with one another, and to jointly work to advance the interests of a truly global aviation industry.

WG-14 Environment CHAIRPERSON: Marc Ponçon, AIRBUS HELICOPTERS SECRETARY: Gilles Crousier, TURBOMECA

Created in September 1970, WG-14 continues to review and update ED-14 environmental conditions and test procedures for airborne equipment, and also the related user guide material in ED-234 User Guides Supplement to ED-14G. ED-14 and DO-160 have existed for a long time and were initially a set of simple procedures and limits that were used to guarantee a minimum quality level regarding the ability of airborne equipment to function in the environment produced on-board aircraft. Since the creation of WG-14, the purpose has evolved and many sections aim to provide guidance on environmental stress, which is as similar as possible to actual inflight conditions, in particular when systems providing safety related functions are concerned, and considering relevant endurance aspects. This resulted in more complex considerations and consequently a need to provide more guidance to the user. In order to keep the main requirement section limited in volume, it was decided to provide this guidance as appendices, finally gathered in a separated ED-234/DO-357 document, “Supplement to ED-14G User’s Guide”. This has successfully been completed in 2015. Due to technology evolution, equipment test levels and procedures need to be periodically updated,

22  EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

so that ED-14/DO-160 is now published as edition G, and although the document has reached a high maturity level, it will continue to evolve on a regular basis. WG-14 collaborates closely with RTCA SC-135 Environmental Testing in the development of these documents to ensure technically identical standards in EUROCAE and RTCA. In 2018 the ToR of WG-14 was supplemented with a new deliverable - Minimum Standard Environmental Test Conditions (categories) and Applicable Test Procedures for Ground Based Equipment. As technology evolves and Unmanned Aircraft Systems are integrated into commercial applications, it is considered necessary to review existing environmental qualification standards and requirements for the surface-based equipment (stationary ground, mobile ground, and sea-based) and provide the environmental qualification requirements for UAS Detect and Avoid, the Command and Control Communications and Control Station Equipment. WG-14 will work in close collaboration with EUROCAE WG-105 and RTCA’s SC-135 and SC-228 to develop a document that specifies ground based environments and the procedures required to test for equipment installed in those environments. The main focus is on specifying the environment conditions. In addition, the environmental test procedures will also be specified.

WG-28 Ground Based Augmentation System (GBAS) CHAIRPERSON: Mike Spanner, NATS SECRETARY: Linda Lavik, INDRA

Since it was created in December 1985, WG-28 worked on the maintenance of ED-114 MOPS for Global Navigation Satellite Ground Based Augmentation System (GBAS) Ground Equipment to support Category I Operations culminating in­ ED-114A Change 1. Within the last two years, the working group has finalised ED-114B MOPS which is intended to provide the basis for development and approval of GBAS ground equipment

supporting approaches down to CAT III operational minima. The due date for a mature draft of that document is Q3 2019, having recently completed the open consultation period. Along with ED-114B maintenance issues, WG-28 is now looking forward to collaborating with ICAO Navigation System Panel in the context of GBAS Dual Frequency MultiConstellation (DFMC) developments. The group also continues to monitor activity within WG-62 and RTCA SC-159 Global Positioning System, who are developing airborne MOPS that will be relevant to take into account for GBAS DFMC operation.

WG-31 Lightning CHAIRPERSON: Franck Flourens, AIRBUS SECRETARY: Dan Morgan, ELEMENT

Created in February 1987, the WG-31 is tasked to prepare technical standards, specifications and guidance material for supporting the development of regulation and compliance processes in relation to the hazards of Lightning and Electrostatics and in liaison with the SAE AE2 Lightning Committee. The­ ToR had been updated in 2017 to integrate additional topics: convergence between military and civil standards, development of a new detection method for potential ignition sources inside fuel tank and an option for a guidance framing the use of simulation in support of compliance processes.

The WG is running with 3 to 4 active sub groups addressing several complementary topics in parallel with equivalent SAE AE2 task groups. This organisation is now running providing better and more effective implication of WG-31 members and a complete coverage of the different topics addressed by both committees. New members joined the group in 2018 bringing fresh views on some difficult topics and reinforcing the diversity of the group, making some industrial domains like test laboratories or general aviation better represented. 2018 was a transition year by trying to finalize the work launched all along the last years. New and complex topics like the use of simulation in support of certification processes were deferred to 2020 to be able to conclude on some outstanding documents. The first achievement of 2018 has been the release of the Lightning Zoning document, the ED-91A. This document is a corner stone in the lightning protection compliance process by providing the method for determining the zones of the aeroplane where lightning is likely to strike. This update came exactly 20 years after the publication of the first issue! This new version took benefit of a tremendous amount of in service data offered by OEMs and operators. Noticeable changes were agreed to

better reflect what is observed in real condition both for airliners and helicopters. The document is harmonised with the SAE one (ARP5414B). The committee unanimously recognised the key role of Bertrand Tagliana who took the responsibility of this document and ensured a complete convergence, sometimes not so easy, with the SAE AE2 views. Another highlight of 2018 is indirect. It is the official revision of the FAR 25.981 and FAR 25.954 about fuel tank protection by the FAA in November. The FAA protection rules have been a matter of concern for many OEMs resulting in the need for either exemptions or special conditions. The revision engaged by the FAA was supported by the EUROCAE and the SAE by the release of two EUROCAE reports (ER002 and ER006) paving the way to a possible convergence between the authorities and industry. As soon as the new rules and associated ACs were released, the WG-31 engaged into the development of a supportive material that should be published in 2021.

This has been a remarkable example of cooperation across the whole community resulting into a much more stable and relevant certification framework. Finally, an outstanding effort was pursued on one major document addressing the whole compliance process for Lightning Indirect Effects from elementary components up to A/C verification (the ED-158). This 250 pages document has requested much more work than originally expected because of its complexity. However, 2019 will be the last step as a complete draft is now available. Formal review process is ongoing at committee level and public consultation is planned by the end of 2019 2019 will be again a tough year for the WG-31. The challenges are accepted and we can expect that the WG sessions will be even more animated and focused on the most critical topics to the benefit of everyone.

WG-41 Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control

System (A-SMGCS) CHAIRPERSON: Roy Posern, FRAPORT SECRETARY: Vasileios Stefanioros, EASA

Also during the last months, WG-41 has been quite busy. The working group met five times in 2018 and concluded its work on the revision “D” of the ED-87 ‘MASPS for Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control Systems (A-SMGCS)’. This document complements the EUROCONTROL Specification for A SMGCS with technical specifications, requirements and test procedures. It provides a basis for the implementation of the A-SMGCS Services Surveillance, Airport Safety Support and Routing at aerodromes. Thus it supports the achievement of conformity to Pilot Common Projects as defined under Regulation (EU) No 716/2014 on the establishment of the Pilot Common Project supporting the implementation of the European Air Traffic Management Master Plan.

24  EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

Since the working group had been actively involved in the development of the EUROCONTROL Specification for A-SMGCS, a continuing collaboration with EUROCONTROL was carried on during the development of ED-87D in order to ensure that operational requirements are properly reflected in ED-87D. This ensures that PCP requirements are addressed appropriately. Close collaboration with ETSI ensured the timely maintenance of the existing Community Specifications and the creation of new Standards in the family of EN 303 213. The coordination with the SJU and EASCG is maintained in order to integrate the outcome of the latest SESAR activities on A-SMGCS and to allow that the SESAR Deployment Roadmap can be supported by WG-41 work. Due to the fact that A-SMGCS nowadays become more and more integrated into the logical and

technical networks, many overlap with work of other working groups requires close coordination. Examples for that are WG-51 SG-4 ‘ADS-B and WAM Composite Surveillance’, WG-49 ‘Mode S transponders’, WG-100 ‘Remote and Virtual Towers’, WG-102 ‘GEN-SUR SPR’, WG-111 ‘A-CDM’ etc. The upcoming activities of the working group encompass further amendment of the ED-87 MASPS with requirements on the A-SMGCS Guidance Service, the provision of a set of documents further describing A-SMGCS in a technical context and specifications for supporting sensor systems for use in A-SMGCS.

WG-44 Aeronautical Databases CHAIRPERSON: Stéphane Dubet, DSNA SECRETARY: Sasho Neshevski, EUROCONTROL

In 2018, WG-44 finalised, jointly with RTCA SC-217, the update of ED-77 «User requirements for navigation data». It includes user-derived data quality requirements, considering both the new ICAO Data Catalogue from the new PANS-AIM and the existing ARINC standards on navigation data (A424). It also reflects the System Wide Information Management context and takes due account of the most recent applications using navigation data. Thanks to the participation of all stakeholders in the aeronautical data chain, and to the active involvement of both industry and authorities, the updated standard is now published and the Group achieved its main obkective. WG-44 is now dormant. It will continue to monitor the progress of WG-105 on data requirements for UAS/UAV operations. Additionally, it will monitor feedback on WG-44 family of standards, as well as the industry requirements for any new types of aeronautical data standards (e.g. for Data Driven Charting).

the SESAR Joint Undertaking. These two Task Forces have been working on that task in the course of 2016. Since the availability of the output of the SJU Task Forces is a prerequisite for WG-59 to start the revision of ED-133, the group has not met in person during the last months but is closely following the SJU work. Activities of WG-59 will restart as soon as the SJU deliverables are available which is expected in the 2019/2020 timeframe.

WG-62 GALILEO CHAIRPERSON: Pierre Bouniol, THALES GROUP SECRETARY: Pierre Durel, GSA

The European Commission has confirmed a full operational capability of Galileo in 2020 and now the contract for the next generation of EGNOS, which will augment dual frequency GPS and Galileo, has been awarded. In this context, the work of EUROCAE WG-62 is focused on the development of the SBAS DFMC receiver MOPS and a first version of the document has been finalised in December 2018. This document is a very important part of the regulatory framework, leading to the certification of equipment. The objective of WG-62 is now to provide an

updated version of the SBAS DFMC receiver MOPS by the end of 2020, in cooperation with RTCA. The attendance of the meetings has grown to include most of the stakeholders for such MOPS. Regular audio conferences, including RTCA attendance, are set up between meetings to move forward on the content of the document. WG-62 meeting agenda now include at least three days only for the SBAS DFMC MOPS review, and the yearly number of meetings is now three. In 2019, WG-62 will increase the coordination with the equivalent group of RTCA (SC-159) towards the joint 2020 SBAS DFMC receiver MOPS deliverable. The responsibilities between the two entities have been discussed, and 2019 will put in motion this cooperation. MAY 2018 - APRIL 2019  27

1. ED-136B - Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) Air Traffic Management (ATM) System Operational and Technical Requirements 2. ED-137B - Interoperability Standard for VOIP ATM Components (published in 5 volumes) 3. ED-138B Network Requirements and Per­ for­ mance for VoIP ATM Systems (published in 2 parts).

Initiated by the FAA, an “ED-137 Interoperability Event” was organised between 29 April and 10 May. During this event manufacturers of Radios, Voice Communication Systems and Recording Systems could validate that their ED-137C complaint radios were interoperable with each other. 16 manufacturers attended the event, 81 testing sessions with 2 or 3 participants were organised. This event provided not only a possibility for the Initial implementations of the standards let to manufacturers to validate their systems, but it was Change Requests (CR) that were collected by also a good opportunity for EUROCAE to ensure the WG-67 leadership.

WG-72 Aeronautical Systems Security CHAIRPERSON: Cyrille Rosay, EASA SECRETARY: Clive Goodchild, BAE SYSTEMS

Created in December 2005, WG-72 is tasked to establish process specifications, guidelines and means of compliance to address security concerns for aeronautical systems. This includes the whole life-cycle of the aeronautical systems, to ensure safe, secure and efficient operations amid the growing use of highly integrated electronic systems and network technologies on-board aircraft. Existing EUROCAE security standards are regularly referenced. For example, EASA Notice of Proposed Amendment 2019-01 recognises ED-202A / ED-203A / DO-356A and ED-204 / DO-355 as acceptable Means of Compliance. WG-72 is composed of three sub-groups whose activities are partially joined with RTCA-216. WG-72­ is currently developing several new standards addressing different aspects of cyber security. From earlier standards focussing on aircraft security, the range of topics are shifting toward the consideration of other domains of civil aviation. This is illustrated by the last standard published by WG-72 SG-2 ED-205, focusing on ATM. WG-72 participation is increasing and looking for contribution from new types of stakeholders such as airlines and airports. WG-72 SG-2 has published ED-205 in March 2019: • ED-205: Process Standard for Security certification and declaration of ATM/ANS ground systems. This new document is considering security for the ATM/ANS ground system. WG-72 SG-3 is tasked to work on both ED-xxx on Security Event Management and on ED-204 /­ DO-355. These activities are joint with RTCA SC-216. • ED-xxx: Guidance on Security Event Management This new document will provide guidance on security event management for various actors in the aviation environment to develop processes and procedures for identifying and reporting security events and to initiate response with respect to continuing airworthiness.

30  EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

• ED-204A / DO-355A Information Security Guidance for Continuing Airworthiness. The guidance for Continuing Airworthiness will to be updated based on outcomes of the ASISSP ARAC and ED-203A update. WG-72 SG-4 has been tasked with revisiting ED-201. • ED-201A AISS Framework Guidance Document ED-201 provides the framework for linking the various portions of security in aviation together. As the relevant standards are being updated and new ones generated, ED-201 needs to be updated to capture these changes. In addition, EASA is in the process of generating a set of regulations (“horizontal rule”) across all aviation domains to introduce an Information Security Management System and shared risk across organisations. In addition to its own activities, WG-72 is also a pole for expertise in support of the activities of other working groups. For example, WG-72 is supporting the activities of WG-98 SG-1 on Aircraft Emergency Locator Transmitters Return Services. WG-72 leadership is also in contact with WG82 New Air-Ground Data Link Technologies and WG-105 on Unmanned Aircraft Systems.

WG-75 Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) CHAIRPERSON: Bill Booth, EUROCONTROL SECRETARY: Garfield Dean, EUROCONTROL

The most important milestone for WG-75, which works jointly with RTCA SC-147, was without doubt the publication of ED-256/DO-385 (MOPS for Airborne Collision Avoidance System X (ACAS X) (ACAS Xa AND ACAS Xo)) in October 2018. It concluded many years of hard work from experts from both sides of the Atlantic.

As in future different types of collision avoidance systems will simultaneously fly in the airspace, interoperability between these systems is paramount. WG-75 and SC-147 are working on a “MASPS for the Interoperability of Collision Avoidance Systems” which is expected to be ready for Open Consultation later in 2019 and will be published as ED-264. In addition, work is performed on the development of a MOPS for ACAS Xu for Unmanned Aircraft Systems scheduled for release in 2020.

WG-76 AIS/MET Datalink Applications CHAIRPERSON: Boris Resnick, IANS SECRETARY: Benoit Morizet, AIRBUS

In their report WG-76 has identified 17 services in the AIS/MET Datalink Domain to be further defined in detail. This work is currently ongoing. In order to achieve globally harmonised imple­ men­­ tation of the AIS/MET Datalink Services, the development of these service specification is per­ formed in a joint activity of WG-76 and RTCA SC-206.

Since in the meantime, RTCA SC-206 has published DO-364, a MASPS containing three example services for the requirements determination, it is planned to add the commonly developed service specifications to this MASPS to publish a complete document. SWIM compliance is one of the requirements on the services specified by WG-76/SC-206, which is why close cooperation will be established with the SWIM experts of EUROCAE WG-104.

WG-83 Airport Foreign Object Debris (FOD) Detection Systems CHAIRPERSON: Stephane Larose, THALES LAS FRANCE SECRETARY: Catherine Bonari, DGAC STAC

Created in 2010, WG-83 developed ED-235 MASPS for automatic foreign Object Debris Detection Systems, published in 2016.

This will be of use to airports seeking to acquire equipment depending on the locally existing operational and environmental conditions. Also, it could serve as guidelines for airport operators on the selection of the appropriate FOD Detection System.

Currently the WG-83 is developing an Operational Services and Environment Definition (OSED) to describe the influence of local and environmental parameters on the performance of an FOD Detection System. By its deliverables, WG-83 is aiming at providing recommendation, as necessary, operating procedures and/or technical specifications for FOD detection equipment with the aim of reducing FOD risk. .

WG-88 On-board Weight & Balance Systems CHAIRPERSON: Kai Thraene, AIRBUS HELICOPTERS SECRETARY: Luc Capaldi, DASSAULT AVIATION

Created in January 2011, WG-88 addresses safety concerns linked to the improper position of the centre of gravity. WG-88 is aiming at providing MOPS for on-board weight and balance systems, and as a result of a study conducted by the WG has identified two kinds of possible systems: primary (intended to replace the Weight and Balance Programme) and secondary (intended to validate the centre of gravity and weight computed by the crew.). WG-88 identified the system accuracy as being

WG-92 VDL Mode 2 CHAIRPERSON: Stéphane Pelleschi, COLLINS AEROSPACE

The task of WG-92 is to maintain the current ED92B version up to date and synchronised with VDL standards mentioned above. ED-92 is used in the baseline for the certification of the avionics systems and has to be consistent with the expectations of the DLS mandate introduced by Regulation (EC) No 29/2009 of 16 January 2009 laying down requirements on data link services for the single European sky (the DLS IR). The DLS-IR situation in Europe has conducted the European Commission to mandate the SJU to study the VDL Mode 2 performance issues leading to provider aborts. The ELSA consortium, which has been awarded by the SJU to lead this study, worked closely with EUROCAE and RTCA to consider the standards and material produced by the committees, and to provide results that will be used by these committees to further develop the standards updates. The ELSA report has been released and provides some recommendations that have been reviewed by the WG-92 in collaboration with RTCA SC-214 VDL-SG and AEEC DLK Technical Subcommittee. The ELSA report has also done the so-called “Bestin-Class” tests. These tests aimed at ensuring that, in a representative environment of the actual VDL deployment in Europe and the future deployed multi-frequency environment, the avionics systems reach the expected level of performance (notably no Provider aborts). These “Best-in-Class” tests have been done on various equipment from several suppliers and have raised some performance issues.

As a result of this work, ED-92 C was published in October 2018. In addition, while working on ED-92, WG-92 identified the need to add test cases related to ground systems requirements to ensure the interoperability of the VDL Mode 2 systems, and initiated the development of a new ED document to cover this aspect. Finally, a VDL Connection-less mode is under study by the VDL working groups as it should improve the system performances and reliability. The on-going discussions may lead to VDL standards update (ICAO 9776, ARINC 631, MASPS & MOPS). A main objective of the discussions regarding the Connection-less mode is to ensure the backward compatibility. The VDL systems will then remain compliant with the DLS-IR mandate. ED-92 is currently being updated to cover the connection-less mode. The release of ED-92D is expected end 2020. The WG-92, jointly with the AEEC and RTCA VDL groups, will continue to work intensively in to prepare the future updates and ensure the standards and related equipment will be available on time for the DLS-IR mandate.

WG-96 Wireless On-Board Avionics Networks (WOBAN) CHAIRPERSON: Robin Davies, BAE SYSTEMS SECRETARY: Peter Anders, AIRBUS

WG-96 was established in 2013 to produce guidance material for the certification of Wireless On-Board Avionics Networks (WOBAN). This work was completed in 2017. WG-96 has since started a joint activity with RTCA SC-236 to develop standards for Wireless Avionics Intra-Communications (WAIC) systems. The Radio Regulations were changed in 2015 to allow WAIC systems to share the band, 4200 – 4400 MHz with Radio Altimeters. WAIC systems must be able to share the band with Radio Altimeters and WAIC systems on other aircraft in a way that (a) ensures the safe operation of Radio Altimeters is not compromised and (b) the worst-case performance of a WAIC system can be predetermined; these two aspects are major prerequisites for proof of airworthiness for future WAIC systems.

To address WAIC, the joint working group has established four sub-working groups focusing on specific aspects of the task: SWG-1 on Co-existence and non-Interference, SWG-2 on Network Layer and System Level Issues, SWG-3 on Security and SWG-4 on Physical and Environmental Requirements. Two documents are under development; a MASPS, ED-260, to be submitted for Council Approval in June 2019, and a MOPS, expected to be published in October 2021: }} ED-260: Minimum Aviation System Performance Specification (MASPS) for Coexistence of Wireless Avionics Intra-Communication Systems within 4200-4400 MHz. }} ED-xxx: Minimum Operational Performance Specification (MOPS) for a Wireless Avionics IntraCommunication System.

WG-97 Interoperability of virtual avionic components CHAIRPERSON: Olivier Fourcade, AIRBUS OPERATIONS SECRETARY: Virginie Frouté, DASSAULT AVIATION

Physical test-benches used in the aircraft development are complex platforms with high initial and recurrent costs. One means to alleviate these problems - Virtual Testing - is a promising solution that has already demonstrated its benefits in other ­industries (cell phone, etc.). However, in the avionics industry, it brings specific challenges: complex distributed systems, hardware heterogeneity, and multiple supplier infrastructures. Created in October 2013, WG-97 is tasked to work on how virtual testing can be integrated within the

avionics development process and to standardise exchanges and integration between test benches (virtual or not), virtual components, and real equipment. The main purpose is to alleviate the use of real test bench and to ease development with means enabling software investigation and integration. The current work is based on performanc optimisation, better avionics protocols coverage, hybridisation. Airbus Helicopters and Airbus Commercial Aircraft are implementing in an industrial way the running revision of the standard, whereas Thales is proposing it through several Research and Technology projects. The WG continues the activity with the aim of finalising the revision of ED-247 by the end of 2019.

WG-98 Aircraft Emergency Locator Transmitters CHAIRPERSON: Philippe Plantin De Hugues, BUREAU D’ENQUETES ET D’ANALYSES SECRETARY: Stewart Taylor, HR SMITH

Created in July 2013, the WG-98 is tasked to improve performance standards for Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELTs). Several aircraft disappearances occurred over water, including Malaysian MH370, for which the potential survivors, the wreckage, potential survivors and the flight recorders have not been recovered. WG-98 intends to establish strong standards to improve the recovery of wreckage and limit future accidents by understanding the cause.

These standards cover the function to trigger ELT transmission from the ground, and define highlevel concepts and typical functional interface requirements, including for the satellite segment. The use of new generation ELTs triggered from the ground through RLS will solve the issue of localisation of non-cooperative aircraft and of General Aviation aircraft that have crashed with no ELT activation. WG-98 SG-1 is maintaining close liaison with RTCA, the ICAO SAR JWG and COSPAS-SARSAT. North American as well as European stakeholders are involved in the activity.

WORKIN G GROUP REP OR T S

Working Group 100 “Remote and Virtual Tower” was founded in June 2014. In September 2016 the first MASPS for “Remote Tower Optical Systems”­ ED-240 was released and in October 2018 the updated standard ED-240A was published. These MASPS are applicable to all optical sensor configurations (visible, as well as infrared spectrum) to be used for the implementation of the remote provision of ATS to an aerodrome, encompassing the whole chain from sensor to display. In addition, ED-240A addresses performances specifications regarding optional technologies like ‘visual tracking’ and ‘PTZ object following’.

In 2019 two meetings in Budapest and Vienna were already held regarding this aspect. The working group started to think about prominent use cases where the integration of additional sensor information into the optical sensor presentation would help the operator to improve their situation awareness. It turned out that the integration aspect most probably will address rather recommendations regarding design aspects and operational consideration and less the formulation of new performance specification. The next meeting will be held in September 2019. The B revision is to be expected for publication by end of 2020.

For the time being the WG-100 work focuses on an extension of the current MASPS (revision B) to cover processing and integration of information produced by existing or emerging surveillance systems/sensors, such as PSR, SSR, SMR, WAM/MLAT, ADS-B, and/or other sensors.

WG-103 Independent Non-Cooperative Surveillance (INCS) System CHAIRPERSON: Tim Quilter, AVEILLANT SECRETARY: Andrew Desmond-Kennedy, EUROCONTROL

WG-103 is tasked to develop a Technical Standard for an INCS System. It was established in recognition that the design of Non-Cooperative Sensors is undergoing a renaissance and that the sensors that traditionally fulfilled this need, rotating Primary Surveillance Radars, are now being supplemented by a host of new designs made possible through the technical advances that have occurred in recent years. Whilst technologies have moved on, the operational requirements have similarly adapted to meet evolving environments Mitigating the clutter originating from wind farms and detecting small

Remotely Piloted Aircraft are typical of the new demands being placed upon new sensor designs.

The lack of a common technical specification, upon which to base the designs of the emerging sensors, threatened to lead to a plethora of sensor types with the potential risk that none met the operational needs of the end user. The group has already made significant progress on assembling a balanced specification that is agnostic enough so as not to unnecessarily constrain the designs and, yet precise enough to ensure the systems produced in accordance with it are both interoperable and capable of meeting the user requirements. The group comprises a diverse mix of sensor manufacturers and ANSPs. Whilst the participation is largely European there are also representations from America and the Far East.

WG-107 RNP Reversion based on DME/DME Positioning CHAIRPERSON: Gerhard Berz, EUROCONTROL SECRETARY: Maurizio Scaramuzza, SKYGUIDE

The 12th ICAO Air Navigation Conference recognised the continued need for terrestrial-based reversion capabilities to guard against the risks associated with GNSS outages. Currently GPS is the enabling infrastructure for all PBN navigation applications, both RNAV and RNP. Generally speaking, DME/DME is considered to only support RNAV applications. This leads to the perception that in case of loss of RNP capabilities based on GPS, reversion to a lower performing navigation capability and associated mitigation measures become necessary.

For the ground functions, the objective is to revise ED-57 to take credit for current equipment performance. In order to provide a clearly documented means for Air Navigation Service Providers to offer an RNP reversion mode based on DME/DME positioning, a separate MASPS is developed that explains the overall concept, and describes the various system elements and allocations to both the ground and the airborne segment. The MASPS is envisioned to be a standalone document, while ensuring consistency with ED-75D.

An analysis conducted by EUROCONTROL, Airbus and other partners (SESAR 15.3.2 D12) has concluded that RNP1 performance can be ensured based on DME/DME, provided that the ground transponder can be relied on for part of the integrity budget. Without such reliance, the on-board reasonableness checks cannot detect all identified possible faults. Fortunately, current equipment readily meets this integrity requirement despite not being specified in Annex 10.

WG-109 Runway Weather Information Systems CHAIRPERSON: Guilhem Blanchard, DGAC STAC SECRETARY: Niklas Jost, FRAPORT AG

With the implementation of the Global Reporting Format, ICAO emphasised the importance of runway condition assessment. To assess aircraft landing and take-off performance on a given runway, aerodrome operators need to evaluate the meteorological contamination of pavements. Runway Weather Information Systems intend to help the aerodrome operator in assessing and evaluating the runway condition. To define the performances expected from the systems and the way of verifying that the latter reach them, WG-109 is tasked to develop Minimum Aviation System Performance Standards (MASPS) for Runway Weather Information Systems (RWIS).

The working group has gathered 34 participants from 25 organisations in 11 countries, representing many stakeholders such as airport operators, sensors & systems manufacturers, aircraft manufacturers, flight crews and civil aviation authorities, thus reflecting both the complexity and the importance of RWIS systems. WG-109 is also working under strong coordination with ASTM E 17 committee on Vehicle-Pavement Systems. The need for performance requirements and performance assessment procedures for RWIS is also emphasised by current regulatory developments such as the publication of EASA Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) 2018-14 and the organisation of a series of ICAO Symposia on the implementation of the Global Reporting Format.

Since its creation in May 2018, EUROCAE WG-109 has achieved sustained activity, with three plenary meetings and two subgroup meetings in less than one year.

WG-111 Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) A-CDM is a concept aiming at improving oper­ ational performance at airports which involves not only the airport operators but also other stakeholders such as: ANSPs, aircraft operators, ground handlers, de-icing companies and supporting services. Many airports have already implemented A-CDM and efficiently benefit from it.

It is not a new topic for EUROCAE as it has addressed previously this topic with the first A-CDM standards delivered back in 2008. Since then the Airport CDM community continued to update A-CDM procedures and system features. This functional evolution of A-CDM as well as requirements derived from the PCP or other domains with close connection to A-CDM (such as A-SMGCS with regard to dynamic taxi times) triggered the necessity to update the existing EUROCAE documents in this domain. The EUROCAE Council on 26 February 2019 has approved the creation of this new Working Group to address this topic. The WG-111 shall address in particular the PCP which requires an interface of A-CDM to A-SMGCS with regard to routing and dynamic taxi times. The second topic is the description of the SWIM A-CDM Service definition, providing requirements for the interoperability between the ATM and Airport domain. The work programme of WG-111 consists of four deliverables: }} ED-141A Minimum Technical Specifications for A-CDM Systems }} ED-145A A-CDM Interface Specification, to include SWIM interface description }} ED-146A Guidelines for Test and Validation Related to A-CDM Interoperability }} A-CDM SWIM Service Performance Specification.

The aviation industry is witnessing a revolution that will see integration of unmanned aerial systems, also called “drones”, into the airspace alongside manned aviation. All of these aircraft, regardless of size, will advance the state of automation onboard the vehicle to ensure safety is maintained despite the lack of a pilot on the aircraft. Unlike most traditional manned aircraft, a significant amount of automation will also remain on the ground to remotely pilot the aircraft. These compute-intensive ground systems are not the traditional target of the ‘software document suite’, i.e. ED-12/DO-178 and related documents. A question was raised to provide a tailorable version/addendum that allows the UAS industry to employ them without sacrificing their remarkable innovation and accelerated (as compared to traditional aviation) development and deployment timelines under which they operate.

In the spring of 2018, RTCA and EUROAE asked the Forum for Aeronautical (FAS) software to consider the question whether ED-12/DO-178, and the various supplements, were appropriate for use on projects developing systems that would operate unmanned or whether the documents could be tailored to meet UAS industry demands for lowcost, nimble, and easily applied software guidance material. The final report of this Ad Hoc group is now available and follow up actions are being coordinated between EUROCAE and RTCA.

EUROCAE publications list EUROCAE Documents (ED) are developed by Working Groups bringing together renowned experts in their area, and following a well-established process.

Some documents are dedicated to the airborne side, others to the ground side (mainly CNS and ATM), while others cover common air and ground requirements.

EUROCAE has published more than two hundred documents, all of them in the Aeronautic fields, several of them developed jointly with US partners and many being referenced in ETSO/TSOs and/or referred to in ICAO SARPs and/or EUROCONTROL ESARRs and/or FAA standards. They are recognised worldwide for their high quality and as state of the art technical specifications.

EUROCAE Reports (ERs) describe results of Working Groups, which are of general interest but not appropriate to publish in the form of a specification or other type of ED.

These EDs cover system or equipment performance specifications, safety and performance requirements, interoperability requirements, technical specifications or guidance material.

All full members are entitled to consult our whole catalog for free. EDs are available for download via our e-shop at the following address: https://eshop.eurocae.net Other members and non-members may buy EUROCAE Documents from our eShop: www.eurocae.net/eshop/catalog

H I GH LI GH T S O F EUR O C AE 5 6 T H G ENER A L A SSEMBLY

2019 EUROCAE SYMPOSIUM HIGHLIGHTS The 2019 edition of the EUROCAE Symposium ended on 26 April 2019 on a positive note regarding the future of aviation and the role EUROCAE should play to support it. Building on the conclusions from the 2018 High Level Meeting, namely that we should expect capacity growth in the coming years yet not compromise safety, EUROCAE has carried some of the solutions highlighted last year into its Technical Work Programme to tackle the appropriate technical solutions. The value of the activity performed by EUROCAE was once again recognised by major industry players and the European Commission, who have highlighted the need to maintain a strong, efficient and effective organisation in Europe to drive forward industry standards.

RPAS – a real game changer RPAS was stressed again as a key game changer in the coming years, with some of the main challenges being to identify technical gaps, perform required R&D activities and set up the regulatory framework.

Urban mobility – a fast-growing segment Rapid urbanisation, demographics and social trends show significant business opportunities, whether for commercial aviation or urban air mobility. At the same time, technological breakthroughs provide an opportunity for more autonomy. At the same time, the radio spectrum constraints pose serious limitations for aviation, an aspect that is being addressed by ICAO. Another significant challenge discussed was the social acceptance of having many drones in the skies at the same time in a city.

Automation and digitalisation Integration of securely connected solutions into a comprehensive aviation eco-system will deliver value to the industry, from reduced fuel burn to reduced congestion, to name just two benefits. For this to happen, our industry requires harmonised

56  EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

regulations and standardisation. Likewise, updating the industry standards to address digital issues should be pursued. As machines become more intelligent and more connected than ever, the need for air and ground automation and integration will increase.

Safety and regulatory aspects to support benefits At the same time, there are several obstacles to overcome. As aviation industry is innovating at high pace, this poses challenge for the regulators to keep up and cope with innovative solutions. Regulators also need to evolve and learn to enable the innovation to be implemented. On the regulatory side, EASA has a full toolbox to enable developments to happen.

Impact on ATM – old technologies must be changed Regarding ATM, there are several possibilities of further digital transformation of the tower, beyond what is currently deployed. Innovative ATM solutions must address the needs of today’s ATM and cope with its challenges: safety must not be compromised, while capacity, technological/economic efficiency and flight efficiency must increase to cope with the rising number of flights. While we are at a crossroad – we have to use technology – it emerged that we can’t just put the human out of loop; at least not in the near future.

Airport developments The symposium addressed also the question how to unleash the potential of enhanced access to airports and terminal airspace, and the environmental issues and the complexity of terminal airspace situation. A-CDM was a key element highlighted by the speakers – which would entail a cultural change. For this, collaboration must be enhanced and based on trust. In the future, the system will be driven by data exchange, data analytics, used in both strategic and tactical applications.


A PRIL 2019, TOULO USE

Avionics developments The performance of global aviation systems depends on the capacity of all actors to perform together, cohesively. For a large part, this will require innovative avionic architectures allowing different update and certification cycles. Considering certification, the paradigm is whether to incentivise or to mandate. Whichever the approach, adapting the certification process to facilitate dynamic evolution while maintaining and improving safety remains essential.

CNS The use of satellite-based technics was once again highlighted as a valid solution to many CNS functions. In particular the global coverage of satellite based ADS-B was mentioned as a solution for an increase in capacity and safety across those areas not covered by ground based surveillance systems. The issue of common mode failure must be anticipated. Likewise, global tracking of aircraft and the use of specific distress signals are promising solutions for accident investigation and – subsequently – prevention.

}} Tackle the presence of significant number of drones in the skies as when addressing the operational scenarios in an urban environment. }} There is a need for consistent automation/ digitalisation of ATM, consistent over time and between stakeholders, especially as automated operations of UAS are on the rise and need to be accommodated. }} Recognising that digitalisation and automation are key for the future developments in aviation, we must acknowledge the challenges posed by automation and human-machine interface developments when it comes to deploying new technologies. }} To better prepare for the future, data is key: we have to connect systems together, and this applies also to airports. Thus, the governance of data is very important, as data should be made available safely, securely and in the required high quality. Data should be better used towards a predictive approach, and trusting the data is essential.

Key take-aways The elements that will be further addressed by the EUROCAE Secretariat, EUROCAE Technical Advisory Committee and Council in an effort to deliver further value to the EUROCAE members, and to revisit the Technical Work Programme in the coming months include: }} Underlying that the cyber security elements are essential to sustainable development of aviation solutions, RPAS/new vehicles included.

}} From a safety/regulatory framework perspective, what is required is to exchange knowledge, understand objectives and priorities from industry, in order to allocate resources to the right areas. }} Satellite services should not be seen as the onesize-fits-all solution; legacy technologies will still play a role in future, at least as fall-back solutions in case of space related problems. Implementation of new technologies should be done in such a way so the flight-deck would not notice an operational difference between the use of ground or satellite services.

2019 EUROCAE Awards Night Standards development by EUROCAE Working Groups is the work of volunteers that spend their time and effort in addition to their activities «at home». More than 2000 subject matter experts are currently registered with EUROCAE to support this task. Each year EUROCAE asks their Working Group members to identify those colleagues that go beyond what can be expected, that show excellent performance either in leading an activity or by contributing to the drafting of the standards. These colleagues are presented with a EUROCAE Award. In 2019 a total of 6 Awards were presented. Leading a EUROCAE Working Group is a very challenging task. Experts come with their own professional and personal background and company interests. Stephane Pelleschi, the 2019 winner of the "EUROCAE Working Group Leader Award" has shown that it can be done. Not only did he lead WG-92 in developing the VDL Mode 2 Standard, he also was willing to step in to lead WG108 (Standards for ATN/IPS) when it was created quite recently. No-one can put it better than one of the Working Group Members: «That working group is in very capable hands». The "EUROCAE Best Contribution Award" was presented to Christopher Hoffman for his contribution to the development of Revision B of ED-62/DO-204, the «MOPS for Aircraft Emergency Locator Transmitters 406 MHz». He was driving the development through some challenging times when the document needed to be restructured and changed significantly. That the development was a success was to a big part due to Christopher’s contributions.

60  EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

Standardisation and its application is global! This makes it important to join forces for the development of standards. EUROCAE follows this principle by working jointly with RTCA and SAE. An excellent example for such a cooperation is the joint work of EUROCAE WG-72 and RTCA SC-216 on the development of standards for «Aeronautical System Security». It was a rocky road they travelled but in the end achieved a standard that was considered by everybody as fit for purpose. The "EUROCAE Global Harmonisation Award" was presented to WG-72/SC-216. There’s a big mis-conception: EUROCAE is for Europe only. Wrong! Indeed about 30% of our members are located in the «rest of the world». Also in the Working Groups a significant number of nonEuropean attendees contribute. The "EUROCAE International Contribution Award" was presented to one of these non-European members: Fabrice Kunzi. His contribution to WG-105 (Unmanned Airborne Systems) ensured that also the nonEuropean perspective was considered. The "EUROCAE Lifetime Achievement Award" shall recognise the contribution of members that goes beyond the participation in one Working Group or the execution of a specific task. It is longlasting contribution to the EUROCAE activities that justifies this Award. Michael Allouche, the 2019 winner of this Award represents exactly this. Since many years he is active in EUROCAE in the area of Unmanned Systems. He is one of the authors of the 1309 reconciliation report, bridging competing perspectives of EUROCAE and JARUS. And when in 2016 the decision was taken to establish WG-105 as a single Working Group to develop standards for unmanned systems, he, together with Alain Vallée, was chairing the group, putting in place a unique structure to manage the challenging work programme.


2019 EUROCA E AWA RD S N I GHT

To recognise outstanding contribution to EUROCAE and International Standardisation, the "EUROCAE Presidents Award" was in 2019 presented to Shigeru Ozeki Director General of the «Electronic Navigation Research Institute (ENRI)», headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. ENRI has since long been an organisation that promoted EUROCAE and its activities. And Shigeru Ozeki was one of those experts spending his effort in the development of standards. But what is really impressive is his dedication when it comes to promoting EUROCAE and its activities.

Not only does he encourage Japanese researchers to attend Working Group meetings, he is always ready to provide EUROCAE with a possibility to present its activities, such as the EIWAC conferences during which EUROCAE presented its activities.

European ATM Standards Coordination Group (EASCG) Since its creation in 2015, the European ATM Standards Coordination Group has developed and maintained the ATM Rolling Development Plan (RDP), the value of which is well recognised and the ROP, often used by the ATM community in Europe and beyond. During these meetings the EASCG updated the Rolling Development Plan. Version 8 of this comprehensive document was published in April 2019. The RDP brings together all relevant standardisation activities and their status and is updated regularly in order to maintain visibility and awareness of the progress. It provides a method for the identification and discussion of overlaps, and as a basis for feedback to contributing organisations, to improve overall coordination of standards developments.

The process also identifies the technical input from other sources (such as ICAO GANP and ASBUs, RTCA, …) into the standards plan through the interfaces of the EASCG with the international level. The EASCG also considered the validation activities prior to the deployment of new technologies with a focus on the role of standards, more specifically, the need for validating standards themselves. This discussion has resulted in a Position Paper on Standards Validation, which was submitted to the European Commission as part of the EASCG’s advisory role to the EC. The discussion went into further details to develop criteria to support the identification of standards needing further validation, which may be supported by the use of checklists to address the necessary aspects at each stage where standards validation takes place.

European Cyber security for aviation Standards Coordination Group (ECSCG) Cyber security is one of the major challenges currently faced by the aviation industry. To respond to cyber security threats, EASA and ICAO are promoting the development of risk- and performance-based sectorial regulations involving, as much as possible, the Industry to develop standards (‘Bucharest declaration’). The European Cyber security for aviation Standards Coordination Group (ECSCG) was created in this context. The ECSCG is a joint coordination and advisory group. Its purpose is to coordinate the cyber security-related standardisation activities across Europe to ensure that the necessary and appropriate standards are available in due time. The ECSCG also acts as a bridge for similar international developments outside of the region

62  EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

Considering that only finite resources are available, it is important to limit overlaps between the different initiatives, ensure interoperability of the systems and compatibility of the relevant standardisation activities in Europe as well as globally. ECSCG gathers experts from the European regulators as well as European organisations active in cyber security and international SDOs to discuss the terms of reference of the Coordination group with the goal to define a way to streamline standards developing activities in Europe. The ECSCG work will ensure a better coordination and monitoring of the relevant activities affecting standardisation. Rulemaking activities under EASA responsibility, standardisation activities executed by the relevant

standardisation bodies, including a significant part of the EUROCAE work programme. The main deliverable of the ECSCG is the European cyber security Standardisation rolling Development plan (RDP). The RDP will list and categorise standardisation and regulatory activities, providing a method for the identification and discussion of overlaps and gaps. As a basis for feedback to contributing organisations, it will improve overall coordination of standards development. Following a first version to be published in the third quarter of 2019, the RDP will be progressively updated to reflect the current situation.

More information on the ECSCG and the European Cyber security Standardisation Rolling Development Plan will soon be available on a dedicated website.

EUSCG continues to support UAS stakeholders After almost two years of activity, the European UAS Standards Coordination Group (EUSCG) proved to be the initiative which came at the right time with the involvement of the right stakeholders. The combined efforts of the regulators, standardisation organisations and industry associations resulted in a comprehensive document – the Rolling Development Plan (RDP) – which shows a very good illustration of the regulatory and standardisation UAS landscape.

hosted by EUROCAE, participants were introduced to a Horizon 2020 project which will conduct a thorough analysis of the information contained in the RDP in order to determine which of the existing and planned standards can be endorsed as acceptable means of compliance in support of the European UAS regulatory framework. This effort will be supported by EASA. The RDP remains a valid source of information about standardisation activities conducted by main SDOs, which benefits were recognised by many stakeholders of the UAS community. The next EUSCG meeting is planned for 11th June 2019 hosted by EASA in Cologne. For more information on the EUSCG and to obtain the latest version of European UAS Standardisation Rolling Development Plan, please visit the webpage www.euscg.eu.

The RDP incorporates the inputs from the major standardisation organisations (e.g. EUROCAE, SAE, ASTM, ISO) but also includes the most relevant ­military references provided through the representative of the European Defence Agency. The Version 3.0 of the RDP was published beginning of March after the remote coordination of the u ­ pdates with all the EUSCG Members. During the EUSCG meeting#8 on 20 March 2019,

The EUSCG is a joint coordination and advisory group established to coordinate the UAS-related standardisation activities across Europe, essentially stemming from the EU regulations and EASA rulemaking initiatives. The EUSCG provides a link to bridge the European activities to those at international level. The EUSCG work ensures a better coordination and monitoring of the relevant activities affecting standardisation. MAY 2018 - APRIL 2019  63

EUROCAE meets US key partners In the framework of the stakeholder engagement plan, a EUROCAE delegation met some of our key partners in the US during the week of 12th November 2018, such as RTCA, ANSI, ASTM and NTSB. It was a good opportunity to meet these important organisations and strengthen our collaboration by getting to better understand their priorities, while presenting the ongoing activities within the EUROCAE working groups and establishing stronger cooperation links.

RTCA The annual coordination and working meeting between EUROCAE and RTCA took place on 1 ­ 4-15 November at the RTCA premises in Washington DC. The RTCA team was led by RTCA Vice President Technology and Standards Al Secen, supported by the Programme Management Committee (PMC) Chair, Chris Hegarty. The EUROCAE team was led by Christian Schleifer, Secretary General, and composed of Eric Bouchard, Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) Chair; Anna von Groote, Director Technical Programme; and Sergiu Marzac, Technical Programme Manager. The meeting was dedicated to a detailed review of the various standardisation activities as well as general items and policy-related subjects, such as our organisations’ contributions to ICAO work. The organisations had constructive discussions, exploring new areas of joint activities, in order to support the aviation industry with globally applicable standards. In closing the meeting all participants recognised the importance of close coordination between RTCA and EUROCAE, and the value this coordination brings to the aviation community. The meeting was also an important signal of our continued efforts in working together to achieve our common goals of international harmonisation and global interoperability.

64  EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

Steve Brown, the RTCA Board of Directors Chair, used this opportunity to introduce Terry McVenes who was just appointed as RTCA President & CEO. EUROCAE is looking to a positive continuation of the partnership with RTCA under the new leadership.

ANSI The discussion with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) offered a more detailed insight into the standardisation system works in the US. A link between the European UAS Standards Coordination Group (EUSCG) and ANSI’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Standardisation Collaborative (UASSC) is established to exchange information on the developments and avoid overlaps in in the activities of the SDOs dealing with UAS. The ANSI Standardisation Roadmap For Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Version 1.0) was published end of 2018 and the EUROCAE contribution to the document was highly appreciated.

ASTM The meeting with ASTM was focused on a potential increase of the collaboration between our organisations, specifically on two main subjects: UAS and runway weather information systems. Both ASTM and EUROCAE see a good potential in this cooperation and the parties agreed to work on a way forward to exchange of information and cross participation in working groups.

NTSB At the meeting with NTSB, EUROCAE presented a number of activities, such as: ROAAS, flight recorders, flight tracking, return link service, helicopter TAWS and runway safety. It was very useful to have the NTSB feedback on these topics taking into consideration their insightful perspective. Another topic for discussions regarded safety recommendations from the investigation authorities as triggers to standard development activities and how standards could better support the needs of investigators.

Stakeholder engagement plan: EUROCAE visit to Japan EUROCAE actively pursued its engagement with our international stakeholders during a visit to Japan in late ­November / ­early December 2018. This visit was a prime opportunity to meet our Japanese members as well as to raise awareness for international standardisation. It also helped to understand the specific Japanese context, priorities and challenges for aviation. During a dedicated workshop at the Japan International Aerospace Exhibition 2018 Tokyo (JA2018), Christian Schleifer, EUROCAE Secretary General, addressed more than 80 interested participants and outlined the European perspective for future aviation and standardisation activities within EUROCAE. This was complemented by 2 further presentations on standardisation activities in CARATS, by Mr. Shuji Takahashi, Director Air Traffic International Affairs Office, JCAB, and examples of Japanese contributions to international standardisation efforts of avionics based on the example of TCAS, by Shigeru Ozeki, ENRI Director General. A meeting with ENRI, Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) and Japan Radio Air Navigation Systems Association (JRANSA) provided in-depth insights into the work these organisations are performing in support of the Japanese ATM modernisation programme CARATS. A specific focus was on remote tower, an area where ENRI has been actively engaged in the past years within EUROCAE WG-100 and is conducting important R&D work. It was also a great opportunity to better understand the Japanese priorities and particular challenges faced here, e.g. in the area of GNSS, and to discuss standardisation trends and EUROCAE’s relationship with other SDOs and contributions to ICAO. EUROCAE also took the opportunity of the meeting of ISO/TC 20 SC16 ‘Unmanned Aircraft Systems’, taking place in Tokyo at the same time, to present and discuss our activities in the area of UTM. As a result of this meeting, EUROCAE applied for a liaison status with ISO/TC 20 SC16, which was subsequently approved.

The visit was an occasion as well to meet with the Society of Japanese Aerospace Companies (SJAC). Anna von Groote, EUROCAE, gave a presentation to an audience of more than 150 participants at the ENRI conference held on 3 December, to explain the EUROCAE process and raise awareness for ongoing and planned standardisation activities and note the importance of a truly global approach to standardisation through the involvement of all interested stakeholders. The visit closed with a meeting with the Tokyo University Aviation Innovation Study Group, under the leader­ship of Prof. Shinji Suzuki on 3 December. This group of high-level representatives of the Japanese aerospace industry was created already in 2008 as an informal discussion group. EUROCAE’s presentation was received with great interest and led to an exchange about international standardisation work, priorities and possibilities for involvement. Developing and nurturing strong relations with­ industrial members and partners from countries and regions around the world is a firm objective for EUROCAE in support of international harmonisation and global interoperability.

EUROCAE participation to the 13th ICAO Air Navigation Conference 9 – 19 October 2018, Montreal, Canada The theme of the conference was “From Development to Implementation” which encompasses implementation of operational improvements, such as technology, operational concepts, and roadmaps, from the conceptual phase until deployment. This theme emphasised the importance of concepts for global use, development of implementation plans regionally, and implementation of performance improvements locally, based on specific operational requirements in a cost-effective manner. The conference covered a wide variety of subjects and included the first time Air Navigation and Safety aspects. Flight safety and air navigation capacity, efficiency and other key performance areas are of particular interest to the aviation community and this conference is paving the way into the technical part of the ICAO General Assembly 2019. EUROCAE on behalf of ARINC, RTCA, SAE International and EUROCAE in its position as ­ recognised international organisation and Standards Developing Organisation (SDO), presented at the conference a Working Paper (WP/55) “Industry Standards in Support of ICAO Provisions”, offering ICAO and the global aviation community our support to complement ICAO provisions with industry standards and urging ICAO to make more and better use of industry standards in the future. This strategy would further enable ICAO to develop performance-based regulations, which will be complemented by industry standards. Many States from around the world and other international organisation supported the content of the paper and the recommendations made to the conference. This outcome is reflected in the conference report as a recommendation: “[…] continue to explore practical means to make use of international standards in particular through the Standards Roundtable coordination

The technical discussions at the Conference will lead to a more efficient and effective decision-making process during the ICAO Assembly in 2019 and will allow for the focus to be on strategic issues based on sound technical advice on both the Global Air Navigation Plan (GANP) and the Global Aviation Safety Plan (GASP). During the Conference, ICAO also convened a meeting of the Standards Roundtable (SRT), the forum where Standards Developing Organisations (SDOs) and ICAO work on the details how we better complement each other’s work. At this meeting EUROCAE presented some good examples where EUROCAE standards can complement ICAO provisions, which were identified based on the analysis we did, comparing each other’s work programme. EUROCAE will further work on the issues raised and priorities established during the Air Navigation Conference in order to reflect them appropriately in our Technical Work Programme so as to be able to identify, develop and publish ­ EUROCAE Documents in support to ICAO ­provisions in a timely fashion and work closely to work with ICAO at the SRT.

EUROCAE at Avionics Expo EUROCAE participated to the Avionics Expo annual event in Munich on 12 and 13 March 2019. Although simultaneous with the World ATM Conference in Madrid, the attendance was as good as last years’ editions. At the event, EUROCAE shared a booth with EUROCONTROL. This presence at the booth led to new contacts and valuable exchanges with the attendees. This was also an opportunity to distribute EUROCAE’s publications.

The second session focused on Big data and cyber security. EUROCAE representatives presented the excellent progress of the activities of WG-72 on aeronautical systems security. Other panellists provided interesting input on the risks in cloudbased services, challenges for connected aircraft and cyber security vulnerabilities from navigation systems.

EUROCAE participated to two conference sessions. The first session addressed the current European and ICAO equipage mandates (i.e. Surveillance Performance and Interoperability Regulation, Datalink Services Regulation, Performance Based Navigation Regulation and the ICAO Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System). This session was chaired by EUROCAE representatives and underlined the implementation issues from the airspace user perspective.

Europe for Aviation – EUROCAE at World ATM Congress Under the theme “Europe for Aviation” the European aviation organisations working to implement the Single European Sky, namely the European Commission, EUROCONTROL, SESAR Joint Undertaking, SESAR Deployment Manager, European Aviation Safety Agency, European Defence Agency, Innovation and Networks Executive Agency, and EUROCAE, were represented at the World ATM Congress which was held in Madrid, 12 – 14 March 2019. In doing so, the organisations showed how between them they cover the full project management cycle from policy and funding to research and deployment. As the European leader in the development of worldwide recognised industry standards for aviation, EUROCAE was able to brief visitors on the latest standardisation developments and how we work together with industry and institutions, in Europe and beyond, to contribute to global interoperability. EUROCAE Secretary General Christian Schleifer participated in several sessions and discussion panels.

The official opening with discussion on the future of the Single European Sky, was led by Filip Cornelis, Director Aviation, DG MOVE, European Commission, as Master of Ceremony. In this session, held in the presence of the leaders of the partner organisations, EUROCAE was very clearly identified as the leading organisation for aviation standardisation in Europe. Nevertheless, we have to do more to stay in this leading role, adapt the organisation, and further instil a standardisation culture in Europe. To achieve this the industry must join the work, having a unique opportunity to shape the means of compliance as regulators move to a more performance-based approach, and we also need the political level to support and push. Touching directly on the core business of EUROCAE as a standardisation organisation, a panel composed of representatives of international partners, such as ICAO, FAA, JCAB, CAAS and IATA, discussed the progress being made and the key opportunities and challenges for global interoperability and international harmonisation, within the context of the international dimension of the EU’s aviation strategy. As ATM systems around the world are modernised, it is essential that harmonisation and interoperability are secured to ensure efficient operations of airspace users and for the ultimate benefit of the travelling public, and high-quality international standards developed by an open and transparent process with the involvement of all interested parties are the best tool to support this objective. In a session on civil-military cooperation, focusing on the civil-military vision and challenges as well as ideas to overcome those challenges, the role of the military in civil standardisation and the benefit of the close involvement of the military in such activities was recognised and encouraged.

In addition, the work of EUROCAE and the status of standardisation activities within the WGs was presented during more technical sessions on drones, cybersecurity and the Data Link Services Recovery Plan. A special focus on standardisation activities directly supporting the Single European Sky and analysis of the effects and contribution of international standards in support to the deployment of innovative solutions. Based on the example of Remote and Virtual Tower we described the success story of transferring the R&D achievements of the SESAR programme towards implementation and deployment of this solution by the industry, supported by open and consensus-based standardisation. WG-100 and ED-240A were in the centre of this discussion and the EUROCAE standard is growing globally as the main reference standard for remote tower deployment. The panel discussion clearly showcased the fact that delivering a complete package of R&D, standards and regulation enables effective deployment of innovative technology and enhances the competitiveness of the European industry.

The “Europe for Aviation” stand and theatre hosted a wide range of debates, presentations and guided walking tours, as well as the Single European Sky Awards, and illustrated the collaboration in action between European aviation organisations working to implement SES. The WAC was again an excellent opportunity to meet with stakeholders, obtain information on ­l­atest industry trends and in turn inform about EUROCAE’s activities and perspectives. Christian Schleifer, EUROCAE Secretary General, concluded the event noting that “the joint stand and various sessions clearly recognised EUROCAE’s place in the bigger picture of aviation in Europe and at global level, and our role as leading standardisation organisation in aviation. EUROCAE is proud to have been a part of this joint effort, looking back on a great event, and looking forward to continued collaboration with our European partners.”

Training: Aviation Software Standards Applied to ATM With airborne and ground-based aviation systems increasingly intercon­nec­ted, the land­scape for critical systems software is changing. Civil aviation is a sector where critical software com­­ ponents (both air and ground sectors) are increasingly present. Further­more, new technologies such as e-enabled aircraft, computer-based concepts and new technologies and concepts such as A-SMGCS, APW, ADS-B and drones have changed the safety risk landscape of the aviation system. At the same time, there is growing demand for guidance and clarification on the way some principles and methodologies are integrated in the lifecycle of critical aviation software systems and components. Whether you are an ANSP specifying or accepting a system, the person responsible for system maintenance, or a supplier at the cutting edge of software product development, you will need to understand the standards options available to you, how to apply them, and the impact on costs.

EUROCAE Communication turnover mainly results from sales of EUROCAE Documents (EDs), trainings, events and contract agreements. Office rents, taxes and charges, service/supplier payments are almost shared equally between EUROCAE Communication and EUROCAE.

EUROCAE generates the largest proportion of the income (membership fee and a bi-annual EC Grant) and expenditures (premises, staff member salaries, social fee, taxes and travels).

As is customary, our legal auditor carried out his audit mission - on EUROCAE fiscal year ending 31/12/2018 and EUROCAE Communication fiscal year ending 30/09/2018 – in January and March 2018. The audit did not reveal any significant findings.
