Seeking for its vision to become the most competitive air navigation service provider in the Baltic Sea Region which is creating, developing, and deploying innovative aviation solutions, SE Oro navigacija participates in the SESAR 2020 Research and Innovation Programme which is developing the next generation of European Air Traffic Management (ATM). This Programme aims to improve European ATM Network performance by modernising and harmonising ATM systems through the definition, development, validation and deployment of innovative technological and operational ATM solutions. Modernization of Europe’s air traffic management system will deliver benefits to Europe and its citizens.
The SESAR 2020 Research and Innovation Programme is managed by the SESAR Joint Undertaking (SJU), which manages the current SESAR Programme. The governance of the SJU is ensured by the Executive Director and Administrative Board, which is composed of the SESAR founding members, equipment manufacturers, civil and military airspace users, airports, and air navigation service providers, staff associations and the scientific community. In 2016, B4 Consortium, to which belongs SE Oro navigacija, became a formal member of SJU.
The whole B4 Consortium comprising of four ANSPs from Central and Eastern Europe (SE Oro navigacija (Lithuania), PANSA (Poland), ANS CR (Czech Republic), and LPS (Slovakia)) participates in 18 Industrial Research, Transversal and Very Large Scale Validation Projects of the SESAR 2020 Programme with financial contribution at the level of around 9,5 M€.
