SESAR 2020

Participation in the SESAR Research and Innovation Programme 2020


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). 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.

Within the context of SESAR 2020, the SESAR Joint Undertaking (SJU) and its members have been working on two waves of industrial research projects, aiming to deliver more digital solutions to transform Europe’s ATM system.

In 2019, the first wave of SESAR 2020 industrial research projects came to a close, delivering a number of solutions (as part of Release 9) to the necessary level of maturity to make them available for pre-industrialisation (Technology readiness level 6 or V3).

In 2020 and 2021, the second and the third waves of industrial projects were kicked off, aiming to take forward the results from the first wave and focus on solutions that can bring the most benefits in terms of environment, capacity, safety and cost efficiency.

With a budget of 151 million, 15 projects (12 focusing on industrial research and three very large-scale demonstrations) aim to deliver a further 50 SESAR solutions.


From 2016, as B4 Consortium member has an opportunity to participate in the following Industrial Research and Transversal projects of the SESAR 2020 Programme (Waves 1, 2, 3):

Wave 1 (2016-2019) projects

  • PJ.05 Remote Tower for Multiple Airports
  • PJ.06 Application of FRA for airspace below FL310
  • PJ.14 Essential ad Efficient CNS Integrated systems
  • PJ.19 New European Air Traffic Management System Guidance
  • PJ.20 The European ATM Master Plan Maintenance
  • PJ.22 Validation and Demonstration Engineering

Wave 2 projects

Wave 3 projects


B4 Consortium. A consortium of the Air Navigation Service Providers of the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic, Poland and Lithuania and the partners thereof was established on 8 September 2014. B4 Consortium is comprised of four Air Navigation Service Providers of Central and Eastern Europe: SE Oro navigacija (Lithuania), PANSA (Poland), ANS CR (Czech Republic), and LPS (Slovak Republic). The common purpose of members of the consortium is effective implementation of technically complex projects of SESAR 2020 Programme, by sharing the burden of research and active participation in collaboration with structures of the SESAR Joint Undertaking (SJU).


SE “Oro navigacija” and PANSA will manage their airspace with a new generation iTEC system

On Tuesday, 26 July 2016, Magdalena Jaworska and Algimantas Raščius, heads of air navigation services providers PANSA and SE “Oro navigacija”, signed contracts with Rafael Gallego, Director General of the Spanish company INDRA SISTEMAS S. A. for the deployment of the iTEC last-generation air traffic management system.

These contracts are the first steps for the both air navigation services (ANS) providers to join the iTEC Alliance, which already encompasses DFS (Germany), ENAIRE (Spain), NATS (U.K.), LVNL (The Netherlands) and AVINOR (Norway).

The ceremony took place in Warsaw, with the presence of honourable gests of the Polish Ministry of Infrastructure and Construction and Agustín Núñez, Spanish ambassador to Poland.
