Dear EUROCAE members and friends, I have the pleasure to address you for the first edition of the Broadcast in 2019, the tenth edition since we started to publish the Broadcast. We want to give you an update of the activities EUROCAE has undertaken over past few months, and an outlook of the upcoming activities, too. 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 EUROCAE brand and activity visibility and to start engaging to generate awareness about EUROCAE's 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 like the recent visit to our Japanese members. Adding to brand recognition, the presence of EUROCAE at the World ATM Congress 2019 as part of the European village – “Europe for aviation” booth – 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, as we reported in our last edition. 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 interrogability and worldwide harmonisation agenda in the light of an increased use of performance based regulations complemented by industry standards.

MESSA GE FROM TH E SECRETA RY G EN ER A L
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 we ran this important exercise for the first time, following the introduction of the ED review process in 2018. The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has confirmed all EDs due end-2018 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 EUROCAE Symposium that is taking place on 25-26 April 2019 in Toulouse, hosted by École Nationale de l'Aviation Civile (ENAC), is a major event that we organise annually. Aside from being located at one of the most vibrant manufacturing hubs in the world – Toulouse – this year the Symposium is bringing together for you representatives from key stakeholders in Toulouse and around the world. The exciting agenda our team has put together provides attendees with an overview of the most pressing aviation questions – and would try to provide the answers and show possible solutions to these questions, too. I take this opportunity to convey on behalf of EUROCAE our heartfelt thanks to all our sponsors that made this event possible and I look forward to welcoming you personally in Toulouse for a constructive and interesting exchange at our Symposium.
In conjunction with the symposium we hold our 56th General Assembly on Thursday 25 April, also on 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 intend to leave unchanged for the third year now. Also new was the opportunity to livestream the General Assembly, via a link will be provided to our members ahead of the meeting. The EUROCAE team is also getting 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 in support of the TPM responsible for WG-105. I look forward to meeting you at the 2019 EUROCAE Symposium or one of the other events that we are actively participating to. With best regards, Christian Schleifer-Heingärtner Secretary General

WG-92 The key role of EUROCAE for the European Data link services recovery The deployment of the datalink services (i.e. the ﬁrst set of CPDLC services known as ATN B1) over ATN2/OSI & VDL Mode 2 as required by IR 29/2009 was planned to be completed in 2015. Such deployment was foreseen as a major step forward toward the modernisation and improvement of the European Air Trafﬁc Management system, necessary to fulﬁl the Single European Sky performances objectives as set up by the European member States. Due to severe technical and operational issues appearing during the ﬁrst stage of ground deployment (i.e. between 2012 and 2014), the target date for deployment completion has been postponed by 5 years allowing the implementation of the relevant mitigations (IR 29/2009 amended in 2015 by CIR (EU) 2015/310). The new deadline for the deployment of VDL Mode 2 ground infrastructure and the upgrade of the ATM system to support the Data Link Services (DLS) was ﬁxed on February 2018. The new airborne equipage mandate deadline is ﬁxed for February 2020. Following the technical investigations conducted by EASA and a later stage by the SESAR Joint Undertaking ("ELSA" study), several actions and recommendations were proposed to the European Commission (EC). Based upon these ELSA recommendations, the EC asked the SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) to develop a DLS recovery plan that was quickly approved by the EC. Following this approval, several mandates were given by the EC to the four organisations (i.e. SDM, EASA, NM and EUROCAE) to support these recovery activities. SDM was tasked to coordinate these activities by implementing an appropriate working arrangement with the three other organisations. This coordination activity has required signiﬁcant effort from all organisations with regular face to face meetings and associated conference calls.
EUROCAE BROADCAST # 10
In this context, EUROCAE received a mandate from the EC, on 10 January 2017, identifying the following items:
} closely work with EASA and the SDM in identifying and developing as needed, the required standards for "end-to-end certiﬁcation" of DLS solutions; } continue adapting ED-92, as needed, targeting the ELSA model D implementation, and complement it by the necessary clariﬁcations and guidance material, to ensure coherence and consistency among all standards and certiﬁcation material } further support the implementation of the DLS recovery plan, in coordination with SDM, EASA and the NM. Regarding the existing standard (i.e. ED-92B) revision or improvement activity, WG-92 jointly with RTCA SC-214 VDL-SG considered the relevant ELSA recommendations. This joint review was also coordinated with the AEEC DLK Technical Subcommittee to ensure consistency between all VDL Mode 2 relative Standards. This joint review was ﬁnalised in April 2018, leading to a new ED-92 release: ED-92C. It was published in summer 2018. No need for new requirement and associated test case was identiﬁed except two:
} One concerning a limitation of the number of frames in the case of grouping in a single super frame that was more dealing with link efﬁciency than defect. } One concerning a maximum time for reestablishing a X.25 link after a CLEAR request reception. The other document updates consisted in the addition of clariﬁcations and complementary guidance.
WORKIN G GROUP H IGH L I GHT S
In parallel to the revision of the avionic MOPS, the WG discuss also some technical and operational issues at VDL Mode 2 system level as identiﬁed within the ELSA study (i.e. interactions between airborne and ground components). Consequently, WG-92 decided to develop another document (i.e. the so-called “companion” document) providing further guidance regarding the main complex interactions of the AVLC protocol (e.g. disconnect mechanisms, handover and hand of between ground VGS or between VDL Mode 2 frequency channels). The objective of this document is to describe through use cases the sequence of interactions when dealing with these complex interactions between air and ground components. New stakeholders, complementing the avionic manufacturing industry, are facilitating the completion of this document (e.g. the two major CSP s: SITA and ARINC and the SDM). This activity is ongoing with the objective to complete the work at the WG level by the mid-2019. To be noted that RTCA has decided to contribute jointly to this speciﬁc activity while it was not foreseen at its initiation. This document will be distinct from ED-92C. Independently from the activity associated with the Impact of ELSA report recommendations, WG-92 has also received the mandate from EUROCAE members to address a connection-less mechanism applicable to VDL Mode2. Such evolution is not foreseen in the frame of the revised DLS IR. It is considered as a potential evolution of the VDL Mode 2 system in an IP migration context. The objective of a VDL connection-less mode is to improve the system performances by reducing signiﬁcantly the number of acknowledgments at AVLC level in the spirit of IP. This is still an option under study within the industry.
A key requirement for the discussions regarding the potential connection-less mode is to guarantee backward compatibility. EUROCAE also supports the rulemaking activity at EASA level (RMT 0524). EUROCAE is an active contributor to this very demanding activity (nearly one face to face meeting per month in 2018). Several meetings have been conducted by EASA during the last years in view of the revision of the current Implementing Rule (IR 29/2009). Among the various topics covered during these meetings, the “end to end certiﬁcation” aspect has also been addressed. This point was clearly identiﬁed in the EC mandate given to EUROCAE. The associated discussions allowed to clarify this point. It is probably more appropriate to speak of end to end validation rather than certiﬁcation. The current process leading to certiﬁcation de facto already includes a part of end to end testing contributing to global validation. Such activities could be more clearly identiﬁed in the guidance material in the future. The EASA RMT 0524 activity is expected to be completed in the coming months with the ﬁnalisation of the associated EASA NPA. Following the analysis of the NPA responses and their assessment, a ﬁnal amendment proposal of the Data Link Services existing Implementing Rule will be submitted to the European Commission.

WG-110 New WG on Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning Systems (HTAWS)
The kick-off meeting of Working Group 110 took place on 11-13 December 2018 at EUROCAE in Paris area. The event was well attended gathering representatives of Airbus Helicopters, Bell, Collins Aerospace, EASA, Elbit, Garmin, IANS, Honeywell, Leonardo Helicopters, Lufthansa Systems, Sikorsky Aircraft, Thales and UK Civil Aviation Authority. WG-110 is tasked to develop a Minimum Operational Performance Standards (MOPS) for Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning Systems (HTAWS) in support of offshore helicopter operations. A number of accidents involving offshore helicopters has demonstrated the need to provide an optimised HTAWS solution for these aircraft. MOPS for HTAWS in support of offshore helicopter operations are also required to support the EASA operating rule mandate under Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/1199 of 22 July 2016 (SPA.HOFO.160(c)).
EUROCAE BROADCAST # 10
The EASA mandate currently applies only to aircraft ﬁrst registered after 31 December 2018. However, this may be extended to other aircraft depending on the outcome of the proposed EASA Rulemaking Task RMT.0708, Controlled ﬂight into terrain (CFIT) prevention with helicopter terrain avoidance warning systems (HTAWS).

WG-111 New WG on Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) A-CDM is a concept aiming at improving operational performance at airports which involves not only the airport operators but also other stakeholders such as: ANSPs, aircraft operators, ground handlers, deicing companies and supporting services. Many airports have already implemented A-CDM and efﬁciently beneﬁt from it.
Provision of more accurate target times with higher update rates to certain stakeholders, A-SMGCS based update of taxi times and taking into account taxi restrictions (e.g. taxiway closures).
The second domain to be taken into account by WG-111 is the SWIM A-CDM Service deﬁnition. It shall provide requirements for the interoperability between
Taking into consideration these developments that are also based on the EUROCAE Technical Work Programme 2019 provisions, EUROCAE Council approved the creation of a new WG-111 on A-CDM on 26th February 2019. The new WG-111 shall address in particular the PCP which requires an A-SMGCS routing service to be implemented in airports and in line with that an interface between the routing service and A-CDM, exchanging updated trafﬁc situation and variable taxi times. This will impact:

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. They published further guidance material and released several updates of the main reference material, the EUROCONTROL Airport CDM Implementation manual (currently Version 5.0, 2017). This functional evolution of A-CDM as well as requirements derived from the IR 716/2014 (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.

European ATM Standards Coordination Group (EASCG) The 15th meeting of the EASCG took place on 25 October 2018, and the 16th meeting was held in Madrid, prior to the World ATM Congress on 11 March 2019. 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 UAS Standards Coordination Group (EUSCG) 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 useful illustration of the regulatory and standardisation UAS landscape. The RDP incorporates the inputs from the major standardisation organisations (e.g. EUROCAE, SAE, ASTM, ISO), while also including the most relevant military references provided through the representative of the European Defence Agency (EDA). Version 3.0 of the RDP was published beginning of March after the coordination of the updates by all the EUSCG Members.
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.
During the 8th meeting of the EUSCG on 20 March 2019, 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 the main SDOs, the beneﬁts of which are being recognised by the stakeholders of the UAS community. The next EUSCG meeting is planned for 11th June 2019, hosted by EASA in Cologne.

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 (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bucharest declarationâ&#x20AC;?).
ECSCG gathers experts from the European regulators as well as European organisations active in cyber security and international SDOs to discuss the progress in cyber security standardisation and regulatory activities. The participating organisations are ACI-Europe, ASD, ASTM, CANSO, CEN, EASA, EC, ECAC, EDA, ETSI, EUROCAE, EUROCONTROL, IATA, SAE and SESARJU.
IFATCA 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 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 second quarter of 2019, the RDP will be progressively updated to reflect the current situation.
The ECSCG also acts as a bridge for similar international developments outside of the region. 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.

TWP - 2019 Technical Work Programme - public version The Technical Work Programme (TWP) is the repository of the ongoing technical standardisation activities undertaken by EUROCAE, as well as the anticipated technical standardisation activities to be potentially undertaken by EUROCAE during the next five years. The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of all these activities, in order to illustrate the extent of the current and future EUROCAE work. The foreseen future activities cover new or revised tasks to be allocated to existing WGs in the short term and a 2-year time frame, and the establishment of specific new working groups (WGs). This document is intended to be used as an input to the EUROCAE Business Plan and Technical Advisory Committee work for starting new and strategically relevant working groups in order to appropriately size the future EUROCAE activities. In general, the strategic environment of EUROCAE, although wide, has been found to be stable. Nevertheless, inﬂuence on the technical domains does exist and it could be summarised as follows:
} There is not much change in the Avionics Domain. Most aircraft manufacturers are upgrading their existing products through incremental innovation. Avionics equipment and systems are slowly continuing their evolution without experiencing signiﬁcant breakthrough changes. In the CNS Domain and in the Surveillance subdomain the focus is on performancebased Surveillance and alternatives to conventional systems, with the opportunity to rationalise the ground surveillance infrastructure. In Navigation, the focus is also on performance-based Navigation, especially on GBAS CAT II/III multi-constellation/dual-frequency speciﬁcation with enhanced DME-DME as a terrestrial backup network. The Communication subdomain will concentrate on work resulting from implementing the recommendations of the ELSA-study, as far as EUROCAE will be concerned, and on preparing the standardisation of a new terrestrial component (LDACS) and a SATCOM Datalink, both in the L-Band.-Not much new work is expected for the ATM Domain. EUROCAE standards on digital Voice for ATM (VoIP) are expected to be globalised by ICAO. } In the Airport Domain, work on Remote Tower is well under way. A-SMGCS is a dynamic ﬁeld, driven by new sensor technologies emerging from SESAR (video and non-cooperative surveillance) and by SESAR deployment mandates.
TECHNICAL WORK PROGRAMME
} In order to reﬂect a more and more service-focus approach, the SWIM services as well as AIS/MET and datalink services have been grouped within one domain: Services. The activities on SWIM in the near future have been outlined by the currently dormant WG-104. In the medium-term, a (to be created) European SWIM Governance function may inﬂuence EUROCAE’s activities in the standardisation of SWIM services. Standardisation of MET information services is expected to happen in the SWIM Domain, also in support of MET Datalink services.

Public version 2019
} In the Security Domain, a substantial work programme is foreseen for WG-72. Work will be conducted in close cooperation with RTCA as far as possible. Necessary input from certiﬁcation authorities has to be awaited. } UAS and General Aviation: with the creation of WG-105, a comprehensive work programme on UAS has been installed for at least the next three years within six Focus Areas. The UAS Domain has the potential to be a disruptive market segment with high growth rates and high number of aircraft especially in the domain of smaller aircraft ﬂying at lower altitudes. This segment of the domain may not follow the approach established for transport category aircraft. European coordination of standardisation is foreseen among this differing stakeholder community via the EUSCG. } In the Aircraft Energy Management Domain, all standardisation activities which are related to energy management of aviation needs are considered such as Hydrogen Fuel cells and the domain is expected to develop in the near future. } Artiﬁcial Intelligence (AI) was identiﬁed as a new domain, technologies combine the raw computing power of machines with the cognitive power to reason, learn and make decisions. It is recognised as increasingly important in the aviation sector. This TWP has been developed by the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) with the support of the EUROCAE Secretariat, and was presented to and approved by the EUROCAE Council. The TWP is available online at http://eurocae.net/ media/1567/eurocae-public-twp-2019.pdf.

EUROCAE meets key US 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 14-15 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 organisationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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. 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.

EUROCA E MEETS US KEY PA R T N ER S
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.
«The visit of the US stakeholders helped to strengthen the links between EUROCAE and these organisations and helped to identify potential for cooperation and new activities.» Christian Schleifer-Heingärtner, EUROCAE Secretary General
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.

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 components (both air and ground sectors) are increasingly present. Furthermore, new technologies such as e-enabled aircraft, computerbased 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.

Training: Aviation Cyber Security Standards Civil aviation is an increasingly attractive target for cyber-attacks. 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, there is growing demand for guidance and leadership in cyber security, where EUROCAE WG-72 has brought a signiďŹ cant technical contribution through four EDs: ED-201, ED-202A, ED-203A and ED-204. Standards and guidance are proliferating in this space, which makes it potentially confusing for aviation stakeholders to know which is appropriate for what purpose. Guiding people through this maze is a key goal of this NEW two-day training course.

E U R O C A E VI S I T TO JAPAN
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.

EUROCAE BROADCAST # 10
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).

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. 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.
Olivier Jankovec, Director General ACI EUROPE
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.

AV ION ICS EX P O 2019
EUROCAE at Avionics Expo 2019 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 few years’ editions. At the event, EUROCAE shared the same booth with EUROCONTROL. This presence at the booth has led to good contacts and interesting discussions with the attendees. This was also a ﬁne opportunity to increase the visibility of EUROCAE’s publications.
The second session focused on Big data and cyber security. Anna Guégan presented the excellent progress of the activities of WG-72 on aeronautical sytems security and the ECSCG. Other panellists provided valuable input on the risks involving cloudbased services, the challenges for connected aircraft, and cyber security vulnerabilities, from a navigation systems’ perspective.
EUROCAE participated to two conference sessions. The ﬁrst session was addressing 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). Chaired by Luc Deneufchâtel, the session underlined the implementation issues from an 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.
Leaders of the Europe for Aviation partners at WAC 2019
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
EUROCAE BROADCAST # 10
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

Christian Schleifer, moderating discussion on standardisation in support of R&D and deployment
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.”

EUROCAE and EASA announce a Joint Workshop on Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft are currently under extensive development. Many projects are in design or experimental phases worldwide, and several applications have been made to authorities seeking type certification within a demanding schedule. EASA is developing a VTOL Special Condition (SC), composed of elements taken from CS-23 Amdt. 5, transposed parts from CS-27 as well as new parts, to address particularities of this new aircraft category using lift/thrust units to generate powered lift and control. Following an objective-based approach to the best extent, while also offering a certain degree of proportionality, the VTOL SC is expected to be published mid-2019. To provide the related guidance to applicants, EASA seeks to have industry standards established, ensuring appropriate participation of European experts to standard development. A stepwise approach addressing the most important Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) with a potentially strong impact on the design is considered for this. EASA and EUROCAE are jointly organising a workshop to discuss current activities, identify and prioritise standardisation needs with key stakeholders from industry, airspace users, Member States, European institutions, academia. The VTOL Workshop will be held on 6 June 2019, at the EUROCAE premises in Paris area, France. Further information and registration to the workshop are available at https://eurocae.net/events.
For further information, please contact Alain VallĂŠe at email@example.com. As places are limited, successful registration will be conďŹ rmed by email after 17 May.

EUROCAE Documents (ED) are developed by Working Groups bringing together renowned experts in their area, and following a well-established process. They are often developed jointly with our international partners and recognised worldwide for their high quality and as state of the art technical speciﬁcations. These EDs can be system or equipment performance speciﬁcations, safety and performance requirements, interoperability requirements, technical speciﬁcations or guidance material. 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. EDs are widely referenced as a means of compliance to regulatory documents by EASA, EUROCONTROL, the European Commission and ICAO.
