R E P O R T F RO M T H E EUR O C AE P R ESI DENT

The growing number of organisations, public and private, who turn to EUROCAE for support reflects the ever increasing relevance and significance of our Association, as one of the main standardsdeveloping organisations. During my first term after having taken over the Presidency from Eric Bernard, I observed the implementation of several major decisions taken at the Annual General Assembly in 2016. These range from the deployment of a clear and visionary strategy elaborated under the authority of the Council to the establishment of a leaner and more efficient working structure. The move of the EUROCAE head office to a new location will also provide the Organisation with a working environment best suited to execute the tasks assigned to our staff and to our members’ representatives. Finally a very successful symposium in 2016 allowed EUROCAE to begin a new annual exercise under the best possible auspices.

One of the biggest strategic challenges that our Organisation faces on a daily basis is to reconcile the large number of organisations which form its membership, and which often have different specific interests. EUROCAE has performed its role admirably, as a unique platform for an efficient exchange among the many players in the aviation industry. This constructive working spirit shows at the level of the Council and the secretariat team, and within the many working groups in the EUROCAE structure. It is consequently not only with pleasure but also with great pride for what EUROCAE represents and is successfully accomplishing that I look back on a very positive annual exercise. The final words of my report are words of gratitude for the outstanding work done by the Secretary General and his dedicated team, who day after day make the best of the Organisation’s resources to accomplish their tasks.

EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT


REPOR T FROM TH E COUN CIL C HA I R

As Chair of the Council, and on behalf of the whole Council, it is my honour to present this report at the end of a successful and busy year for our organisation. This year was marked by several achievements, including the move from Malakoff to Saint Denis, the launch of the new IT system, a record high attendance at the Annual EUROCAE Symposium, and very productive Working Groups. Membership also increased by more than 10% over the year and new members included IATA as our 200th member – they bring a very useful and welcome participation of airlines to the EUROCAE Working Groups. We have continued our international engagement with RTCA Inc. and SAE International, and have actively participated to the ICAO Standards Roundtable. We also signed a MoC with the European Cockpit Association, who will provide important know-how and another network that could help expand our activities. Thanks to the new membership fee structure, we have additional resources we will use to better respond to the needs of our members. The new EUROCAE facilities in Saint-Denis are already providing benefits – many Working Groups have been using them since they were opened in February 2017.

The EUROCAE Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) played a key role in maintaining a comprehensive and dynamic work programme. The TAC has updated the Technical Work Programme and ensured EUROCAE keeps ahead of the industry requirements in terms of new standards. The updated work program will be made available shortly on the EUROCAE website and I would encourage you to look at it and let us know if you have any suggestions. The EUROCAE Council has been working with the Secretariat on a series of improvement projects to streamline the way that Working Groups are launched and documents published when they are ready. Changes have also been made to the EUROCAE Internal Regulations that will further improve our efficiency. As this is my last term as Chair, I would like to thank all of you for your support and wish you and EUROCAE a successful year ahead. I encourage all of you to continue to display the excellent support you have showed to our organisation. This will make EUROCAE even stronger, to better server your companies and the aviation industry.

R E P O R T F RO M T H E SEC R ETARY G ENER AL

Dear members and friends of EUROCAE, I would like to provide you with a brief overview of the progress made over the past year. The Business Plan for the years 2016 and 2017 clearly indicated that EUROCAE lacks the adequate number of staff and resources. To ensure the proper support and functioning and to provide the adequate response to the increased demand for standards from our members, the General Assembly had approved in 2016 a new membership fee structure which became effective beginning of 2017. The new financial structure, together with the increasing number of members, allowed us to add an additional permanent technical programme manager beginning of 2017. I am pleased to report to you that EUROCAE is now able to better respond to the strategic objectives defined by the Council. This is just one of the additional measures taken to better respond to your demand, considering the 36 active working groups. This is a record-high number of parallel activities we’ve engaged in, which is expected to increase further – always in line with the membership demand. A year ago we were announcing that EUROCAE will move to a new location. Now, we have completed the move. EUROCAE offers you modern facilities, fully equipped with state of the art audio and video equipment. With 3 conference rooms and one

EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

large communications area for breakout sessions, the new facilities are most suited for Working Group activities, no matter how complex. Situated in Saint-Denis - just half an hour away from Charles de Gaulle Airport and 10 minutes from Gare du Nord – the headquarters allow for an optimum meeting timing for your experts. Moreover, we have revamped the IT infrastructure. This brings us one step closer to the goal of offering to all of you tangible savings in terms of time and cost associated with participation of experts to working groups, by reducing the administrative burden and allowing more efficient and effective meetings. I am pleased to inform you that there are several new and exciting projects that we initiated and that you will hear more of in the next months. EUROCAE will launch a training programme on Cybersecurity, with the first training scheduled for Q3, 2017. This follows the Cybersecurity workshop organised together with EASA in Brussels. The goal of this workshop was to shape and to tailor the regulatory and EUROCAE work programme on standardisation. On the UAS side, WG-105 kicked off very well and is already active in six focus teams. We are also about to launch the European Unmanned Aircraft Systems Standards Coordination Group – EUSCG – in coordination with the European Commission and EASA. This follows the already successful EASCG initiative that is progressing very well and has proven very successful.


REPOR T FROM TH E SECRETA RY GEN ER A L

This year’s edition of the EUROCAE Symposium brought us to one of the most vibrant and chiefly important aviation centres in the world: London. With 12% of our members coming from the United Kingdom, we see a clear interest and active involvement here, translating in 27 member organisations supporting the mission of EUROCAE. The Symposium aimed at gathering your input so we can use the conclusions of each of the topics mentioned above to shape the EUROCAE work programme. Our special event featured distinguished representatives from EASA, European Commission, ICAO, SJU, SDM, FAA, RTCA, EUROCONTROL, UK CAA and prominent industry leaders from around the world tackling the most topical subjects of the aviation industry. This year our speakers started the ‘roundtable’ discussions with an insight on the PerformanceBased Regulations. The following panels offered a perspective from General Aviation (GA) and the fast-developing world of the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). Performance Based Navigation (PBN), Datalink and Service Wide Information Management (SWIM) were equally explored over the two days of the Symposium.

standard developing organisations (SDOs) are asked to complement these regulations with more and more “how to comply” standards. EUROCAE and you, our members, are ready to accept and address these challenges. Since our last Annual Report we kept you informed timely and professionally via the Broadcast (we have just released the 6th edition) and the periodic NEWSblogs. We will continue to do so, and look forward to hearing from you regarding any matters you deem relevant for us to further emphasize or activities to engage in. Once again, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate my small but very dedicated EUROCAE Secretariat team, which enabled the smooth transition of the office move with virtually no impact on daily business, while maintaining a top responsiveness towards our members. Last but not least, I invite you to come and visit us in Saint-Denis! With best regards,

Already last year we realised the changing environment and the increased demand for standards. This year we went further. With the regulator providing a high level, performance based and proportional regulatory framework, Christian Schleifer-Heingärtner Secretary General

PA R T N ER S

Memorandum of Understanding with European Cockpit Association (ECA) EUROCAE & the European Cockpit Association (ECA) marked the start of a closer partnership with the signature of a new Memorandum of Understanding. On 28 of April 2017 the organisations agreed on reinforced cooperation on the development of industry standards for better and safer aviation. ECA represents over 38.000 professional pilots in Europe and has long established itself as the active voice of pilots speaking with the European Institutions, such as the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers, as well as EUROCONTROL, the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) and the SESAR Joint Undertaking. Its expertise has already made it a key contributor to various work streams at EUROCAE, ranging from ATM, avionics, safety devices, airports to RPAS.

EUROCAE President, Francis Schubert mentioned that a new collaboration always brings new opportunities for both partners and ECA has proven over the years its active involvement in different developments steaming to ensure a high level of aviation safety based upon harmonised rules throughout Europe and globally. EUROCAE shares the same vision and is looking forward to a constructive cooperation for the benefit of the aviation industry. Christian Schleifer, EUROCAE Secretary General and Jon Horne, ECA Vice-President committed to actively cooperate within the framework of the MoU and to effectively use all the available resources to the benefit of the industry.

This reinforced partnership between EUROCAE and ECA will bring added value for both organisations and industry overall. The MoU provides a basis for facilitating the exchange of general and technical information, sharing expertise and best practices, ensuring cross-participation in working groups where appropriate and developing joint positions or recommendations to third parties on certain topics. “We share a long history of working with EUROCAE, we share the same safety-oriented goals and objectives”, said Jon Horne, ECA Vice-President. “The right, commonly understood technical standards are critical to aviation safety, and this is why we are very happy as a profession to be fully engaged and partnered with EUROCAE”.

document, “Supplement to ED-14G User’s Guide”. This has successfully been completed in 2015.

Created 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.

Due to technology evolution, equipment test levels and procedures need to be periodically updated, so that ED-14/DO-160 is now published as edition G, and although the document has reached a high maturity level, it is likely that it will continue to evolve on a regular basis.

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 in 1970, 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

WG-31

Lightning

CHAIRPERSON: Franck Flourens, AIRBUS SECRETARY: Stephen Haigh, Cobham

Created 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 mandate was extended in 2015 to integrate compliance process for Electro-Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) in association with the SAE AE4 (EMC-HIRF). The WG is now running with 4 active sub groups to address several complementary topics in parallel with equivalent SAE AE2 task groups. This organisation initiated in 2015 allows a better and more effective implication of WG31 members and a complete coverage of the different topics addressed by both committees.

Finally, the draft of the guidance document for developing a certification approach for EMC (request from FAA end of 2014 and integrated to the TOR of the WG31 in 2015) has been finalised and voted out in a joint session by both SAE and EUROCAE committees. The EUROCAE document is now referenced ED-248 with public consultation launched in 2017. To be noted a continuous increase of the WG-31 attendance again this year, with an average of 25 members participating to the sessions and covering all branches of industry, laboratories and official bodies. On a more personal subject, WG-31 members recognised the outstanding contribution of Billy Martin who chairs the SAE AE2 for 17 years, participating to all WG31 sessions to ensure tight coordination on all subjects. Billy will retire from his current position in October 2017 but will ensure a transition period with the new chairman who should be officially nominated by mid-2017.

WG31 launched two round robin tests in association with the SAE AE2 having the objective to prepare evolution of two major test procedures: ED-14 Section 22 for qualifying equipment to the indirect effects of lightning, and ED-105 photographic method aimed at detecting ignition sources in fuel tanks. Four European laboratories volunteered to contribute to these test activities and started providing essential results demonstrating the practicality and better efficiency of new test methods and paving the way to a consensual revision of the related standards.

WG-44

Aeronautical Databases

CHAIRPERSON: Stéphane Dubet, DSNA SECRETARY: Sasho Neshevski, EUROCONTROL

After the successful revision of standards on processing aeronautical data (ED-76A) in 2015, WG-44 initiated in 2016 the update to ED-77 to cover user requirements for navigation data, considering the developments in the navigation domain over the past 15 years in general, and in particular the Performance Based Navigation principles. This joint initiative with RTCA SC-217 Committee will determine applicable data quality requirements considering both the ICAO latest propositions in the new PANS-AIM and the existing ARINC standards on navigation data.

WG-49

The expected standard update will also reflect the new System Wide Information Management context and take due account of the most recent applications using navigation data ‘runway safety, data driven charts, etc.). The progress made in 2016 and early 2017, thanks to participation of all stakeholders involved in the aeronautical data chain, from originators through data providers to airframe manufacturers, provides good confidence for meeting the deadline for publication of the updated standard in June 2018.

Mode S Transponder

CHAIRPERSON: Eric Potier, EUROCONTROL

Reactivated in January 2015, WG-49 has been working in 2016 on a revision of the Mode S Transponder MOPS (ED-73 and ED-115) to } resolve errors reported by transponder manufacturers, } resolve misalignment between EUROCAE MOPS and RTCA MOPS, } reflect the last ICAO amendments, } define new requirements as necessary to ensure transponders are more robust to RF environment encountered nowadays in Europe, } review the data provided through transponder registers to support new applications such as ACAS X or Wake Vortex, } remove unnecessary functions, } and to add functions/data to support new ADS-B 1090 MOPS including a possible new phase modulation scheme. Target date for the availability of these documents is end of 2019.

In addition, the future Transponder MOPS will contain basic requirements necessary to include future collision avoidance functionality (ACAS X) into the transponder. Finally, WG-49 – via the Combined Surveillance Committee CSC - takes on board requirements from EUROCAE WG-76/RTCA SC-206 (AIS/MET Datalink Services) for the provision of the related information. Since in parallel work is performed on the respective ADS-B document ED-102/DO-260 (MOPS for 1090 MHz Extended Squitter Automatic Dependant Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) & Traffic Information Services – Broadcast (TIS-B)), a Combined Surveillance Committee (CSC) has been established comprising members of EUROCAE WGs 49 and 51 as well as RTCA SC 209 and 186 to ensure a harmonised development. In addition close cooperation is maintained with EUROCAE WG-75 (Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance Systems (TCAS)) and WG-76 (AIS/MET Datalink Services) and their respective RTCA counterparts SC-147 and SC-206.

Galileo

CHAIRPERSON: Pierre Bouniol, Thales Avionics SECRETARY: Pierre Durel, GSA

Galileo constellation which limits its use for civil aviation. A working paper has been circulated to the EC, GSA and ESA representatives.

During 2015, the Galileo OS MOPS has been reviewed and commented. The main fact has been the discussion on the Galileo Ionosphere correction model. The Nequick model is too demanding on the computational load and deemed not certifiable by the EASA representative. A working paper on this subject will be delivered soon. As a conclusion and also due to the lack of constellation performance commitments, the Galileo OS MOPS has been put on hold (see modifications of the ToR below).

EUROCAE WG-62 has proposed an update of its ToR to acknowledge the changes described above. The new ToR have been approved by the EUROCAE TAC in May 2016. To be noted: in addition to the Russian representatives, EUROCAE WG-62 has welcomed Chinese attendees in December 2015.

In the meantime, discussions have accelerated on a GPS/Galileo multi constellation SBAS MOPS (SBAS DFMC MOPS). As the GSA is proceeding with the EGNOS V3 program, a certain level of maturity of the SBAS DFMC MOPS is required. A subgroup led by the GSA has been created to build up the preliminary MOPS to support the EGNOS v3 system development.

WG-72

Aeronautical Systems Security

CHAIRPERSON: Jean-Paul Moreaux, 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, including the whole lifecycle of the aeronautical systems, addressing security concerns for aeronautical systems to ensure safe, secure and efficient operations amid the growing use of highly integrated electronic systems and network technologies used on-board aircraft. WG-72 is maintaining a very close connection with RTCA SC-216 Aeronautical Systems Security and with several other EUROCAE and international working groups. To respond to the anticipated EASA mandates for Technical Material with respect to imminent cybersecurity-related performance-based rulemaking, WG-72 has been re-structured into subgroups with the objective of maintaining a coherent and comprehensive set of standards for all upcoming aspects of aeronautical information systems security. Mid 2016, the group has started working on a new subject, Security Certification of ATM Systems (ED205). It is the beginning of reaching out from the aircraft- and safety-centric perspective of the work to the ground- and more business continuity-centric logic. Looked at from a large European perspective, this also means airspace capacity-centric. At the same time, the existing airworthiness security process-centric work continues, while the understanding of critical factors and contexts grow with the increased application of previous versions of existing standards (ED-202A, ED-203). While working on the next version of the latter, which had been published separately from a similar variant of RTCA (DO-356), the revision work significantly

30

EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

focuses on harmonising the two documents in Europe and the US and to keep them harmonised in the future. Also, the need to align ED-204 to the modifications and enhancements of ED-203 has been identified recently. The real importance of the working group, however, has followed the increasing awareness and concern of the subject of information security in aviation. All industry and governmental stakeholders now understand the high potential of the large-scale risks caused by aeronautical systems security. And it has been understood that all stakeholders will have to coordinate technical and operational efforts and collaborate in establishing seamless protections in order to protect the civil aviation ecosystem. One key factor to make a sustainable level playing-field happen and to keep it effective will be a comprehensive set of rules which all stakeholders will adhere to. With the emergence of an updated Basic Regulation “Cybersecurity” – that part of Information Security related to the networkbased communication of the modern world, including aircraft networks – will be considered in a fully comprehensive, aviation-wide and end-toend approach. At the EASA High Level Meeting Cybersecurity in Civil Aviation, held in Bucharest, Romania on 8-9/11/2016, the complementary nature of performance-based regulation providing the regulatory framework and industry standards providing the means of compliance was clearly recognised. To complete its set of rules, EASA will need an equally broad set of technical standards. A workshop was held at the Brussels EASA premises on 31 May 2017 to discuss with all industry and governmental stakeholders the width and depth of the standards needed as well as priorities in terms of standardisation activities (see also page 73). Its outcome will outline those elements of the foundation for a resilient and secure future of civil aviation in Europe and form the basis for a future work programme of WG-72.

no Provider aborts). These “Best-in-Class” tests have been done on various equipment from several suppliers and have raised some performance issues.

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).

In addition, while working on ED-92B which currently only contains test cases for the avionics systems, the WG-92 identified the need to add test cases related to ground systems requirements to ensure the interoperability of the VDL Mode 2 systems.

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

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) and, in that frame, ED-92B should be impacted. 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. The WG-92, jointly with the AEEC and RTCA VDL groups, will work intensively in 2017 and 2018 to prepare the future updates and ensure the standards and related equipments will be available on time for the DLS-IR mandate.

Interoperability of virtual avionic components

CHAIRPERSON: Olivier Fourcade, AIRBUS 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. Initial ToR (December 2013) has been updated and approved in February 2017 and the first official draft has been distributed in March 2017. The WG continues with the aim of having the next version issued by beginning of 2018. Still no certification credit is directly expected from the resulting standard.

EUROCAE WG-98 continued to work jointly with RTCA SC-229 to revise the MOPS ED-62A/DO204 in order to improve the document in light of recent accidents. The work on this document is progressing, and the document is now scheduled to be released for Open Consultation in Q3/2017.

These characteristics should be useful as guidance material to regulatory authorities, designers, installers, manufacturers, service providers and users of systems intended for operation. ED-237 was published on February 2016, and referenced in ICAO Annex 6.

In parallel the group has developed a MASPS ED237 covering the function that would trigger ELT transmission while in-flight, defining some high level concepts and the typical functional interface requirements between the ELT and the emergency triggering element. The document defines the minimum specification to be met for criteria which can be used to detect an in-flight aircraft distress

WG-98 is maintaining close liaison with the ICAO FLIRECSWG. North American as well as European and Asian Authorities are contributing to WG-98 activity.

Portable Electronic Devices

CO-CHAIRPERSONS: Stephan Schulte, Lufthansa Technik; Robert Kebel, AIRBUS Secretary: Nuria Riera, Triagnosys

Safely dealing with electronic devices on board aircraft has been a long, evolving process, ever since concerns were raised about the usage of electric razors onboard planes in the 1950’s. Fast forward through the testing of operating two hundred laptops onboard an empty aircraft fifteen years ago, to today when airlines cannot escape the ubiquitous use of cell phones, and the variety of PEDs, is limited only by the imagination of PED creators. Consolidating all guidance material for usage of PEDs on aircraft has been an important achievement for EUROCAE and RTCA.

Created April 2014, WG-99 worked jointly with RTCA SC-234 Portable Electronic Devices, to align the existing documents in EUROCAE and RTCA to develop

To honour this achievement, the 2017 EUROCAE Awards Committee has selected EUROCAE WG99 and RTCA SC-234 as the winners of the “Global Harmonisation” Award, which was presented to the Co-chairs during the Gala Dinner during the 2017 EUROCAE Symposium at the Royal Aeronautical Society at London on Thursday, 27 April 2017.

WG-100 Remote and Virtual Towers CHAIRPERSON: Jörn Jakobi, DLR SECRETARY: Mariann Hintz, EUROCONTROL

Working Group 100 “Remote and Virtual Tower” was founded in June 2014. It consists of active contributors from more than 30 companies worldwide and acts in close coordination with EASA, ICAO, SESAR, SESAR2020 PJ05 and EUROCAE WG41 A-SMGCS. The group was tasked as a first step to develop standards for remote towers optical systems. In September 2016 the MASPS document 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. This standard will help vendors and customers to quantify an optimal operational system performance and to verify it in a standardised way.

For the time being the WG-100 work focuses on an extension of the current MASPS (revision A) to include ‘visual tracking’ technologies. By the WG100 ‘visual tracking’ is understood as the augmentation of the display of objects on the visual presentation by using information obtained only by image processing of the video from the optical sensors for the purpose of increasing the operator’s situation awareness. The MASPS (revision A) are expected to be published by 2018.

WG-101 Runway Overrun Awareness and Alerting System CHAIRPERSON: Pierre Georges, DASSAULT AVIATION SECRETARY: Logan Joneas, AIRBUS

Aviation Safety statistics indicate that runway safety is a major accidents and incidents category, with almost 30% of occurrences, most of these being runway excursions. Modern avionics and aircraft systems make it possible to design monitoring systems which will follow in real time an aircraft trajectory and energy state during approach and landing, and using a runway database and aircraft landing performances raise an alert to the crew when the predicted stopping distance is not compatible with the runway length. Such functions are called «Runway Overrun Alerting and Awareness Systems» and will give the crew the opportunity to either execute a go around or increase braking , depending on the flight phase, if a safe landing is estimated not to be possible.

fications) for ROAAS systems, following a public consultation by the European Aviation Safety Agency on a proposed mandate for such systems, in keeping with the safety plan to prevent runway excursions. EASA plan to use the document resulting from WG-101 work as a basis for a future rulemaking. WG-101 membership is a fair cross-section of the stakeholders community worldwide, including aircraft manufacturers, avionics manufacturers, airlines and pilots representatives, ATM, airport systems and authorities, from both sides of the Atlantic. Participation has been very active and the group has made significant progress in drafting the Minimum Operational Performance Specification for a Runway Overrun Awareness and Alerting System. The document is planned to be released to Open Consultation in Q3/2017.

WG-102 Generic Surveillance Safety and Performance Requirements CHAIRPERSON: Roland Mallwitz, DFS SECRETARY: Jörg Steinleitner, EUROCONTROL

WG-102 is tasked to specify generic surveillance safety and performance requirements. Within the approach taken these requirements are based on operationally driven ATC surveillance requirements. They are related to a logical end-to-end ATC surveillance function and its respective sub-functions (resembling typical physical ATC surveillance components) and in this respect determine the overall surveillance system performance. The goal is to formulate generic safety and performance requirements for surveillance in a consistent technology independent manner.

With this overall system approach the EUROCAE document(s) to be developed by WG 102 are expected to support the surveillance performance and interoperability regulation and provide guidance for a harmonised implementation. WG 102 had its kick-off meeting in October 2015. The work of the group is closely coordinated with the work related to the evolution of the Surveillance Performance and Interoperability Implementing Rule (SPI IR) EC 1207/2011 and a potential revision of ESASSP, the EUROCONTROL Specification for ATM Surveillance System Performance.

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

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.

WG-103 is a relative newcomer to the collection of EUROCAE Working Groups. It was kicked off in December 2015 and has hit the ground running.

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. Even though the group is in its early days significant progress is being made on assembling a balanced specification that is agnostic enough so as not to unnecessarily constraint the designs 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.

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.

WG-104 SWIM Services CHAIRPERSON: Siegfried Schäfer, DFS SECRETARY: Eric Roelants, EUROCONTROL

WG-104 started in January 2016 the works on the standardisation of SWIM (System Wide Information Management) Services that have reached a maturity level so that they are ready for standardisation. The focus of WG-104 is on a standardised SWIM service description for the extended Arrival Sequence (AMAN) SWIM service. The main effort goes to the specifying those elements which are needed for the standardisation and on elaborating the right level of (technical) detail of the SWIM service description. The existing service description from SESAR1 for the extended AMAN has been taken as a basis and has been

further extended to reach a standardised service specification. A standardised service will ensure interoperability between systems provided by different industry providers and can therefore be seen as a first milestone towards the implementation of an Open Architecture where the integration of components from various providers will be enabled. In addition, WG-104 is working on a guideline document aiming to support the standardisation of future services. Another deliverable of WG-104 was the Work Programme, which defines the Roadmap for the standardisation of further services. This deliverable was already completed at the beginning of 2017 and is currently under analysis by the TAC.

WG-105 Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) CHAIRPERSONS: Alain Vallee, Safran and Michael Allouche, IAI SECRETARY: Andrew Jones, Thales

EUROCAE has been working on standardisation for Unmanned Aircraft Systems since 2006 when WG-73 was founded. Later WG-93 was split off with the aim to develop standards for small RPAS. In the course of 2015 the political and regulatory environment changed. Initiated by the Riga Declaration from the European Commission and with the EASA Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) 2015-10, a shift towards a risk based, operation centric approach for the approval and regulation of RPAS operations was implemented. Since the weight or the size of an Unmanned Aircraft was no longer the decisive factor, also the split of the EUROCAE activities into WG-73 and WG93 was no longer reflecting the new environment. During a workshop on 04 March 2016 a wide range of EUROCAE stakeholders were consulted on the future structure EUROCAE would put in place for

the standards development for unmanned systems. The Workshop participants made it very clear that they would like to see EUROCAE working with one WG only covering the whole range of standards required for the safe integration of UAS into the airspace. Following the results of the Workshop, EUROCAE initiated the creation of WG-105 which kicked off from 15 to 17 November 2016. Since the scope of WG-105 is very broad, implementing a structure that facilitates the management of the Work Programme was challenging. The work was organised in Focus Team, each of them developing standards for a specific aspect of UAS. To harmonise those developments and to manage the overall Work Programme, a Steering Committee has been created consisting of the WG Leadership and the Focus Team Leaders. It is expected that by middle of 2017 the ToR have been revised and fine-tuned and the Work Programme is in its final shape.

WG-106 EFB Software Applications CHAIRPERSON: Eric Lesage, AIRBUS SECRETARY: Manuel Gucemas, Thales Avionics

WG-106 will deliver MOPS for Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Software Applications - 2018.

To facilitate the operational approval path in Europe and an EASA ETSO authorisation, an industry standard on EFB software applications became necessary. Based on the existing material, WG-106 should ideally unambiguously define the perimeter of EFB applications, identify the minimum requirements that any EFB application must meet, propose guidance for specific class of EFB applications and specify the data needed for proper integration of the EFB application in operations.

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 (ER) 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.

EUROCAE Symposium Highlights Over 120 delegates attended the EUROCAE Symposium on 27 and 28 April in London, UK. The sessions focused on 7 topical subjects: Performance-Based Regulations, General Aviation, UAS - Regulatory, Performance Based Navigation, Datalink, UAS Technology & Operations and SWIM. Christian Schleifer-Heingärtner, EUROCAE Secretary General, opened the event by highlighting the achievements and the challenges EUROCAE is facing, and giving an overview of the past year since the last Symposium held in Vienna, Austria, in April 2016. He noted the important level of participation, which shows the high level of interest from the industry towards the EUROCAE activity.

The EUROCAE President, Dr. Francis Schubert emphasised how EUROCAE is a solutions-oriented organisation. He acknowledge the constructive working spirit at the Council, Secretariat and WGs level. He welcomed the topics chosen for the Symposium and encouraged the wide audience to quality exchanges to take place during the two days of the Symposium. The host country was represented by Dame Deidre Hutton, UK CAA Chair. In a keynote address, she stressed that aviation should act as a community

regardless of borders – national, international or otherwise. Dame Hutton acknowledged that EUROCAE work is very important as it brings regulators and the industry working together and that the UK CAA fully supports it. Mr. Maurizio Castelletti presented the European Commission perspective. He empahsised the Environment as an area the EC is very active in, and mentioned aviation safety regulations and Single European Sky as key elements to focus on as well as drones integration and emerging challenges such as cybersecurity. He restated the EC support to EUROCAE in developing aviation standards and technical specifications with clear impact on ATM and SESAR. Mr. Adriaan Heerbaart, EUROCONTROL Director Central Route Charges Office, Director PanEuropean Single Sky mentioned that standards have to be carefully developed in order to avoid over-standardisation or poor standards which could affect the industry by bringing additional costs. Mr. Heerbaart reiterated the commitment of EUROCONTROL to support regional and global standardisation efforts, while stressing that cooperation is a prerequisite to a successful standardisation activity. SESAR Deployment Manager Deputy Managing Director and Director Technical and Operations Mr. Nicolas Warinsko presented the achievements of the SDM. He emphasised that sustainable deployment cannot work without standards, where the value of EUROCAE work is well recognised. He mentioned EUROCAE as a key enabler bridging the gap between mature technologies and what we can bring to market, where the importance of global interoperability is critical.

SESSION 1: PERFORMANCE-BASED REGULATIONS The panel stressed how much global harmonisation and global standards are essential for aviation development. The industry is making tireless efforts to bridge any gaps thereto, this including the bilateral activity between standardisation bodies in Europe and the United States. At the global level, the ICAO Standards Roundtable is a very important interface between standardsdeveloping organisations and ICAO. This requires a standardisation roadmap, timeline and deliverables. By making this roadmap transparent, the aim is for stakeholders to come to ICAO to say where the possible gaps are.

performance-based regulations we should also talk about risk-based oversight. There are three ingredients to performance based rules: objective, process, and performance. The EASCG model, a recognised initiative with more than 1.5 years of experience, is a good example of how the regulator and SDO work together. Taking a consensus-driven development approach, this process is now established and recognised worldwide. The ultimate goal of performance-based regulations is a more stable regulatory frame and more flexible second layer of industry standards. There is no need to duplicate efforts – but to make use of industry efforts instead.

Performance-based regulations should limit regulatory intervention to what is essential – the performance requirements, and leave businesses and the industry the greatest possible choice to meet regulatory requirements. This would promote innovation and the adoption of technical standards by SDOs . about

SESSION 2: GENERAL AVIATION

SESSION 3: UAS - REGULATORY PERSPECTIVE

There are significant challenges to GA certification streamlining. These are linked to the average age of GA aircraft, the cost of new aircraft (prohibitive to many private pilots), and not the least the cost of certifying new systems.

UAS exist since 1930s – though the activity was mostly a military one until relatively recently. Yet, there has been an exponential development in the civil area since 2010.

Solutions do exist, amongst which using performance-based rules and industry standards, enabling the deployment of safety-enhancing technology into existing fleet at lower costs, and making technology safer. See and avoid presents specific characteristics for GA, as visual acquisition happens before device detection. Whereas visual flight rules (VFR) are simple – and by following them one stays safe and avoids collision, when weather interferes, then serious limitations to VFR can make the situation very difficult to manage. The industry should work together to ensure mutual interoperability of 1090 MHz, use Information Display & integration with 3rd party display solutions, and to lower barrier to entry to develop products that meet market needs. In a nutshell, some of the most important standardisation challenges for GA are related to equipment size, weight, power, cost, and path to equipage. Also, a clear direction on technological solution is needed, as it to identify funding / financing opportunities. Last but not least, interoperability is very important, and here regulations and industry specification requirements play a major role. To address this matter and to enable and align strategies, GA should engage with international standardisation bodies.

EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

Drones fly from minutes to several hours. There are great variety of UAS masses, sizes, configurations, modes of propulsion and command and control. This is different equipment with different operational requirements, making the spectrum for UAS extremely vast. With over one million drones registered in the US alone and a much greater number of drones not registered at all, an awareness and education campaign is necessary. When regulating the operation of drones, the protection of overflown people is a particularly important matter that should always be considered. Another major regulatory challenge stems from the fact that the development of civil UAS (operations, technologies) is worldwide, and many actors do not come from the manned aviation community. A number of tools exist, to help the regulators around the world – whether we are talking about the ICAO RPAS Manual, UAS Toolkit (for small UAS), etc. There is a need for new working methods, at the speed of industry development, to harmonise domestic regulations globally. EASA highlighted an upcoming NPA in this area and the main elements it introduces in the regulatory framework. According to this, 3 categories of UAS are envisaged: open, specific and certified with the operator being responsible for the safe operation depending on rules applicable to the category of operated UAS. Also, the registration of operators (except the toys) would be required, There would be an e-identification and geo-fencing requirement as well.

SESSION 4: PERFORMANCE BASED NAVIGATION PBN brings up several benefits for stakeholders. It improves above all safety, especially on final approach, with the increase of confidence in positioning accuracy, creates system flexibility (where ATS routes, SIDs/STARs can be placed), interoperability (one qualification, works everywhere), and a better access to airports and airspace. It also provides ground based equipment rationalisation, DME optimisation, coordination with standards, regulations and implementation activities, and environmental improvements. Also, there is a particular feeling about noise in aviation. People are using social media, and pressure mounts for authorities, airports, and airlines. Noise is a major issue especially when airports experience growth. Possible ways of mitigating noise could entail to limit, and where possible, reduce the number of people significantly affected by aircraft noise and to consider the environmental factors from the start, when designing procedures, while engaging as early as possible with the community. To this end, reducing significant impacts rather than the number of people who will experience some aircraft noise would produce better results.

On the other hand, new route designs may have environmental benefits, but create operational impacts and aircraft capability issues. This is not just a challenge to PBN. The aircraft is the ‘noise generator’, and there will be no optimal solution that addresses all stakeholder needs. Nevertheless, a balance will be required in order to find the most acceptable route positioning or operating concept. Not the least, costs and timescales of changing airports procedures are elements that would also have to be mitigated in the process. And this does not make the situation any easier to handle so PBN can be easily implemented. Going forward, EASA proposes PBN regulation supported by standards. With the activity harmonised at ICAO level in the PBN manual, it is translated into aircraft certification requirements and route design criteria. At the same time, EUROCAE has a policy to revisit standards for and bring them up to date. Along these lines – and considering their importance in the PBN context – EUROCAE should revisit the navigation sensor standards (and maybe provide an update thereto).

SESSION 5: DATALINK SERVICES AND TECHNOLOGIES How do we ensure European DLS deployment? How do we best prepare i4D and 4D ATM? How do we ensure interoperability EUR/US? How do we make an efficient use of the spectrum? Are the different technologies mature and credible (SAT, Terrestrial, AeroMACS)? How to manage complex Aircraft Integration? How do we address Security Aspects? And how do we handle operational situations in the polar regions? - these questions were addressed by the 5th panel at the EUROCAE Symposium that dealt with Datalink.

From the IATA perspective, future COM needs to support the evolution of en-route / TMAs and Airport traffic (based on the SESAR ATM Master Plan), to ensuring “Capacity meets Demand” , and a worldwide interoperability and harmonisation through global standards developed by ICAO, RTCA, EUROCAE. To secure the DLS deployment, a validation of the avionics system operation in the evolving multi-frequency environment should be done in a complete end-to-end environment.

SDM presented the way of working with relevant bodies and the ongoing activities.

Very importantly, the industry should proceed with the validation of ELSA recommendations for the airborne segment, moving forward with actions started during the ELSA project.

Considering the incoming DLS implementation deadlines, SDM would evaluate with EUROCAE the opportunity to anticipate the current plan for the documents production. SDM fully supports EUROCAE future activities, including the preparation of an ED for ground test cases (by the end of 2018) and the update to several other documents, based on the specification of the VDL Connection-less mode (by mid-2019).

On the regulatory side, the process for aircraft certification should be improved. The EuropeanUnited States standardisation and roadmap alignment should continue as a joint effort. There is already a strong coordination between Europe and the United States, however some differences have to be dealt with.

From an EASA perspective, filling the gap towards successful DLS implementation would be answered through a single network infrastructure within a single service area, allowing to balance the data traffic, and the implementation of alternative COM means for AOC to offload VDL mode 2 traffic. Essentially, the goal is to establish an end-to-end certification and oversight function. EASA is of the opinion that the technology and operational environment used to transmit ATN messages also needs careful tailoring to the intended operational concept.

SESSION 6: UAS - TECHNOLOGY AND OPERATIONS EUROCAE is very active in this area through WG105. The WG develops the necessary standards to enable safe integration of all classes of UAS into all classes of airspace. In doing so, WG-105 considers the emerging European regulatory proportionate risk based approach and related categories (open/ specific/certified), while giving due consideration of the industry requirements and maintaining close coordination with EASA, JARUS, and other bodies concerned (i.e. SJU, EDA , RTCA, ASTM).

What emerged is that aviation requires solutions for U-space (UTM) and that the impact of drones on ANSPs is growing. How do drones enter and exit controlled airspace? This is one of the many questions to which there is no answer yet. SESAR expects some 7 million consumer leisure drones to be operated across Europe in 2050 – not counting the commercial and government missions. A more fundamental question might be: are ANSPs going to be part of the (new) business model?

Different business segments have specific requirements. Whether we are talking about operations, technical, regulatory or commercial aspects, the challenges for each of these areas are quite various. They span from public perception (threat to privacy), to technical, operational, planning, business risk. UAS airspace integration and certification challenges are significant, as the regulatory context is still evolving and the difference between the European and the US context is significant. The large number of UAS operations, size, applications as well as of organisations involved does not make the task any easier. EUROCAE WG-105 facing these challenges through due coordination with authorities and by taking a holistic approach and having created an interface with other involved stakeholders, while working on six Focus Areas to provide deliverables oriented as per industry needs.

SESSION 7: SYSTEM WIDE INFORMATION MANAGEMENT The SWIM panel provided an excellent overview of what SWIM is and what is not, where we are today compared to 8 years ago, what the evolution is in the SESAR program, and which contributions have made SWIM a unique development. Thus, SWIM is an umbrella concept, which enables the use of SWIM enabled applications. SWIM is a notion, and not only a set of services; it is a methodology, which comes with many standards. SWIM characteristics include easy access to information, easy connectivity, and the provision of cost reduction in the ATM evolution. There are multiple ATM stakeholders, each with specific needs that drive the offer and respectively the consume of ATM information from each other. The cost element is an important one, which should be proportional to the required performance level.

There are many significant benefits SWIM is bringing up, which can be looked at from a business or an operational perspective. From a business perspective, we can mention the agility in future evolution, the flexibility in global uptake, as well as the global interoperability. Common methods and standards and a secured information, deliver cost efficiency through a service oriented architecture. From the operational perspective, SWIM enables ASBUs (XMAN, A-CDM, FF-ICE, TBO, ..) and provides the right information at the right time through filtering, alerting, and visualisation. EUROCAE WG-104 has already identified a list of services that should be standardised. The WG itself will focus on AMAN going further, while several additional services are under consideration to be standardised within the framework of EUROCAE, possibly by the specific WGs dealing with those areas with active support from WG-104 experts.

The Symposium presentations are available on the EUROCAE website.

Chairpersons Club 2017 On 30 March 2017 EUROCAE hosted the 2017 edition of the annual Chairpersons Club. Over 20 participants joined this year’s meeting hosted by EUROCAE on the new premises in Saint-Denis. Chairs and Secretaries of 13 EUROCAE WGs joined this meeting.

LATEST NEWS Christian Schleifer, the EUROCAE Secretary General, informed the WG leaders of recent developments at EUROCAE: from office move, new IT system, and the annual Symposium to the stakeholder engagement plan, cooperation agreements, membership policy, and efficiency task force. He also highlighted the record number of 36 active Working Groups (WGs), compared with only 18 WGs 12 years earlier.

the GANP, and is negotiating with ICAO to upgrade the current Memorandum of Understanding to a Memorandum of Cooperation to cover the closer link between the organisations and the increased use of EDs in the ICAO context.

TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE (TAC) ENGAGEMENT Eric Bouchard, EUROCAE TAC Chairperson, joined the Chairpersons Club. He provided a very engaging presentation of the TAC and the future of standardisation activities, stressing that WGs are the ones that have the view what standardisation activities will be happening in the coming years. At the same time, more and more TAC members are in touch with WGs to gather their expert view for updating the work programme for the future activities of the organisation.

PERFORMANCE-BASED REGULATIONS Performance-based regulation concept is a key aspect where EUROCAE can and does act. Performance-based regulations need to be complemented by industry standards which provide the technical details ‘how to comply’ with the highlevel regulations. EUROCAE is recognised by all key regulators (ICAO, EASA, national regulators) as one of the major providers of these technical standards thanks to the high quality of the EDs developed by our WGs. Whilst this is a very positive step and welcomed broadly by the community, greater reliance on industry standards also puts greater expectations on EUROCAE and the WGs to deliver their standards on time, and to address the right scope. This was reminded and well acknowledged by the WG leaders.

RELATIONSHIP WITH ICAO Participating to the ICAO Standardisation Roundtable was a major step for EUROCAE to further engage with the international community in civil aviation. EUROCAE is also invited to participate to the ICAO Visionary Team to prepare the update of

He stressed that TAC reviews ToRs and supports WG activities. In doing so, the TAC reviews proposals for new standardisation activities, provides guidance in the more and more complex environment – Technical Work Program is a key driver, which also ensures technical alignment with other standardisation bodies. ToRs could be updated using a ‘fast-track’ mechanism. If the relevant information is shared by email ahead of the TAC meeting to ensure all relevant details are made available to the TAC, with the WG Chairperson present, it should be possible that the ToR are finalised at the same meeting. The meeting ended on a similarly positive note that was present throughout the day, with an interactive session where participants shared best practices and lessons learned. This furthered the sense of collaboration among the industry stakeholders, with support from the EUROCAE Secretariat. The meeting also covered updates on current EUROCAE activities and projects and provided an opportunity for the WG leaders to network and exchange on challenges encountered in their work and best practices to address them.

E U ROP E A N AT M STANDAR DI SATI O N C O ORD IN ATION GROUP (EA SCG)

EUROCAE chairs the European ATM Standardisation Coordination Group (EASCG) On the initiative of the European Commission, the EASCG, a joint advisory group was established to coordinate the European ATM-related standardisation activities, essentially stemming from the European ATM Master Plan, in support of Single European Sky SES implementation.

Since the creation of the EASCG, the group has developed into a very efficient and effective coordination platform, successful in coordinating the main stakeholders and addressing complex, pressing issues, such as the validation of standards, in an open and collaborative manner.

The EASCG, according to its Terms of Reference (ToR), develops, monitors and maintains an overarching European ATM standardisation rolling development plan, based on the standardisation roadmap from the SESAR framework with additional inputs from the EASCG members (including military) and from other key actors in aviation as needed. These tasks included in a first instance the maintenance and updates of the Pilot Common Project (PCP) “indicative roadmap with respect to standardisation and regulation”, which was completed in summer 2015.

The main deliverable of the EASCG is the European ATM Standardisation Rolling Development Plan. This rolling development plan is regularly updated to reflect the evolution of the relevant activities. Three versions of the RDP have been released, providing increasing levels of detail on the various standardisation and regulatory activities, and upto-date information on their progress. The RDP has become the sole reference source for information on standardisation activities in the ATM domain in Europe.

Furthermore the group facilitates the sharing of work among the Standards Developing Organisations (SDOs), thus avoiding the risk of overlapping developments and gaps. All relevant standard development activities are monitored to identify as early as possible resource difficulties, risks and other issues related to the standard development. The EASCG provides a forum to manage specific standardisation topics, provides a platform for finding consensus between the contributing organisations and advises the European Commission on standards development matters. The membership of the EASCG is composed of European Commission (DG MOVE), EASA, EUROCAE, EUROCONTROL, ESOs and SJU. The SESAR Deployment Manager, EDA and ASD participate as observers. In October 2016, EASCG has granted CANSO Europe permanent observer status.

EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

Like in 2016, EASCG organised a session during the WAC, which took place in Madrid in March 2017 (see also page 73 [WAC report EASCG session]) to further engage with the aviation community. In addition, regular reports have been provided to the Industry Consultation Body’s Technical Subgroup. The EUROCAE Secretariat, in its role of EASCG Secretariat, also set up a dedicated website to inform the aviation community about the activities of the EASCG and make available the RDP for download. The website, www.eascg.eu, went live in July 2016, and over 100 stakeholders have already registered their interest in the work of the group.


EUR OPEA N UA S STA N D A RD S COORD IN ATION GROUP ( EUSC G)

EUSCG – Coordination of European UAS Standards Development Several events such as EASA High Level conference on Drones in Warsaw and the EASA Workshops on Unmanned Aircraft Systems, have highlighted the multitude of ongoing UAS-related standardisation activities in Europe. They have confirmed the need for a more holistic approach and a structured coordination process for the standardisation activities, supporting the regulatory framework set up by the European Commission and EASA. The environment in which UAS operations shall be performed is changing. Moreover, the range of UAS products and their types of operations is quite wide, much wider than for manned aircraft. The challenges faced and issues to be solved are often different between the small and large UAS, leading to technical solutions, which are also different. This is reflected in the different set of competent standardisation bodies, per product class. To enable the safe operation and seamless integration of UAS into the airspace in a coordinated and harmonised way, it is essential to ensure that the necessary and appropriate standards are available in due time. Considering that only finite human resources available, there is a strong need to streamline relevant standardisation activities in Europe. Based on the positive experience with the successful launch of the EASCG (European ATM Standards Coordination Group, www.eascg.eu), EUROCAE has proposed to initiate a similar group for unmanned systems, the EUSCG (European UAS Standards Coordination Group). This proposal has been made in coordination with the European commission, DG MOVE, and EASA. The EUSCG shall bring together the regulators (EC and EASA) and all relevant standards-developing organisations (SDOs), supported by industry and representatives of UAS Operators, to ensure a

harmonised and coordinated work programme between the involved organisations, based on a common understanding of standardisation needs. Only a consolidated approach will allow resources to be allocated in the most efficient way with each organisation being responsible for the areas it is best suited for. The analysis of existing work programmes shall ensure that gaps are prevented and overlaps resolved. It will be the task of the EUSCG to deliver a Rolling Development Plan (RDP) for UAS Standardisation. The UAS RDP which will contain detailed information on who will develop which standards by when. It will also show the connection of the standardisation activities to regulations or ongoing regulatory work. Involving the European Commission and EASA form the start is essential to make sure that the RDP fits the political agenda and the regulatory requirements. EUROCAE has invited all stakeholders for the EUSCG Kick-Off meeting to take place on 01 June 2017 at the new EUROCAE premises at Saint Denis. At the time this report is written, 19 organisations have registered for the meeting, proof that this initiative is very well received by the stakeholder community.

EUROCAE at World ATM Congress EUROCAE actively participated at the World ATM Congress, which took place 7 – 9 March 2017 in Madrid. Under the motto “Partnering for excellence in global aviation” EUROCAE was represented on a joint stand with our partner organisations, including the European Commission, SESAR Joint Undertaking, SESAR Deployment Manager, EDA, EASA, and the Network Manager.

capabilities in the form of the datalink technology as essential enablers for the modernisation of air traffic control and to achieve SESAR performance benefits. Luc provided information on EUROCAE planned activities to address the recommendations of the ELSA report in WG-92. These recommendations have been confirmed by the European Commission in a mandate letter to EUROCAE.

In fact, ‘Partnering for excellence in global aviation’ is the theme for all activities taking place at the SESAR stand and theatre during the World ATM Congress. Activities are being hosted by the SESAR Joint Undertaking (SESAR JU) and the SESAR Deployment Manager (SESAR DM) in collaboration with the European Commission, Network Manager, European Defence Agency, European Aviation Safety Agency and EUROCAE, the European leader in aviation industry standards.

Anna von Groote joined Peter Green, Head of Standardisation Unit, EUROCONTROL and Al Secen, Vice President for Aviation Technology and Standards, RTCA in a session entitled ‘Standards facilitating change in air traffic management: the EUROCONTROL, EUROCAE and RTCA perspectives’. The session focused on the openness, transparency and consensus-based standardisation processes and the cooperation between the organisations ensuring complementarity of the activities and avoidance of duplication and overlap.

This partnership was visible during the three days of the WAC, where the EUROCAE team had the opportunity to contribute to several sessions, either as active speakers or in the audience. Christian Schleifer was invited to participate to a high-level opening session, ‘Towards Global Interoperability’. Ensuring that new ATM systems around the world are harmonised and interoperable is essential if the full benefits of ATM modernisation are to be realised to the benefit of airspace users and the travelling public. The EU and US cooperation and the important role of the ICAO at the global level were underlined. Luc Deneufchatel contributed to a session discussing the ‘Data Link Services Recovery Plan’, which focussed on high-quality data communications

EUROCAE ANNUAL REPORT

Another session, organised by the SJU, ‘CNS and Avionics: Challenges and Priorities’, showed how the Single European Sky is fostering changes to the aviation infrastructure including moving towards rationalisation, cost reduction and more efficiency. Finally, the EASCG workshop, ‘Standardisation: connecting R&D achievements, industrialisation, deployment and regulation’, presented the EASCG activities and the Rolling Development Plan. Building an efficient, sustainable and safe Single European Sky requires the modernisation of the European ATM infrastructure. The EASCG was recognised as an essential link building the bridge between R&D and deployment by coordinating standardisation and regulatory activities throughout the development process.

EUROCAE at the I-CNS Conference The 2017 ICNS Conference was organised in Washington DC between 18 and 20 April 2017. The motto of the conference was “CNS/ATM Challenges for UAS Integration”. The importance of industry standards in the implementation of the performance based approach to the integration of UAS into the airspace has been acknowledged widely. EUROCAE has an extensive programme in place for the development of these standards by Working Group 105. During the conference EUROCAE presented this work programme and how it can be integrated into the European environment. The session called for increased transparency and improved coordination, and examples such as the European ATM Standardisation Coordination Group (EASCG) or the ICAO-led Standards Round Table were welcomed. Further coordination and awareness-raising about standardisation and opportunities for participation to the standards developing process were proposed. EUROCAE is already actively engaged with our partner organisations in Europe as well as internationally and will continue to work towards global coordination.

EUROCAE at Aviation Electronics Europe The 2017 Aviation Electronics Europe conference & exhibition took place in Munich MOC on 25 and 26 April 2017. EUROCONTROL shared their booth with us, which gave us the opportunity to present EUROCAE at the AEE, and Luc Deneufchatel was busy at the booth answering questions and distributed supporting and information material. EUROCAE was also speaking at the opening session of the conference, addressing the «Future Avionics Mandates – the bridge between cockpit and ATM programmes». EUROCAE´s presentation covered the key role of standards in the industrialisation phase and providing the bases for a successful deployment. This first session was conducted together with SESAR Joint Undertaking and EUROCONTROL. The three organisations reconfirmed the importance of timely available standards to schedule equipment mandates and successfully role out new functionalities. More heated discussion took place afterwards at the EUROCONTROL/EUROCAE booth

WORK SHOPS

Workshop on Cybersecurity in Aviation Joint EUROCAE-EASA workshop on Cybersecurity in Aviation 31 May 2017, Brussels Cybersecurity incidents are increasing in frequency, magnitude and complexity, and have no border. Civil aviation is an increasingly attractive target for adversaries and new technologies such as e-enabled aircraft, new generation CNS/ATM systems and drones are changing the risk landscape of the aviation system. At the same time, the rationalisation and concentration of the aviation IT infrastructure and the multiplication of network connexions will create new vulnerabilities.

The EASA High Level Meeting in Bucharest (November 2016) on Cybersecurity in Civil Aviation concluded that to ensure both a level playing field and a balanced sharing of risk management, cybersecurity in aviation will require risk and performance based sectorial regulations that benefit from industry standards to the greatest extent possible. The need to develop a coherent, global and streamlined airworthiness framework consisting both of regulatory material and standards is therefore paramount. The long time scale of regulation and standardisation processes was seen to present some clear challenges to cybersecurity, given the fast growing and quickly evolving threats.

There is a concern that the aviation system is insufficiently protected against cyber threats and that there is an urgent need to develop a holistic response.

documents, events and contract incomes. Facilities rentals, taxes and charges, payments for services and suppliers are shared almost equally between EUROCAE Communication and Association.

The main expenditures are related to the EUROCAE premises, secretariat staff salaries, social security, taxes and travel expenses. The Communication SARL turnover arises mainly from sales of EUROCAE

For 2016, EUROCAE finances supported the planned increased in expenditures that led to a smooth transition to the new office location in Saint-Denis and the IT modernisation project. Overall, EUROCAE finances remain stable and are structured in an optimised way between the Association and the Communication. With the new membership fee structure in place from 2017 on, it is expected that a

sustainable financial situation will be maintained to support the strategic objectives of the organisation as well as the growing demand on members’ needs and standardisation activities. The operating income for the fiscal year 2016 for EUROCAE Association was € 1.066.000 and showed an expected increase, notably as a result of a slightly better utilisation of the EC Grant and an increase in members. The operating result was within 5% of the planned budget.

EUROCAE Communication - 2015-2016 operating income

The operating income for the fiscal year 2015 - 2016 for EUROCAE Communication SARL was € 310.000. The operating result showed a positive net result, due notably to activities related to contracts, the annual symposium and the sales of EUROCAE Documents. The annual full legal audit of both EUROCAE entities revealed no significant findings and it is expected that the change of accountant will continue to enhance the financial management and reporting of the Organisation.
