Modernization of air navigation

Published on Tuesday 28 January 2020
To improve the effectiveness of its action, DSNA developed a strategic plan to comply with performance targets regarding the safety, the capacity, the environment and the cost control. DSNA controls its performance by monitoring indicators and thus supervises the successful implementation of its strategy.

Strategic plan of air navigation

One of these objectives is the modernization of the air navigation. The technical modernization plan of the DSNA takes into account the european research program “SESAR”, technological dimension of the “Single European Sky” project, and in particular the regulatory framework established by the " Pilot Common Project", first step of deployment of the work in 2015. It is based on new generation tools (4-Flight, ERATO ...) and optimized operational procedures for all phases of flight (EGNOS, Airport CDM ...).

Information aéronautique

La direction des services de la Navigation aérienne (DSNA) est certifiée pour fournir les services d’information aéronautique à tous les usagers de l’espace aérien français, y compris en Outre-mer. Le Service de l’Information Aéronautique (SIA) au sein de la direction des opérations est chargé d’assurer la publication de cette information sous forme de produits et de services.

L’évolution du SIA s’inscrit dans la transition d’un environnement AIS à un environnement AIM : les services basés sur l’information papier ou électronique sont progressivement remplacés par la mise à disposition, à tout instant, de données numériques de qualité accompagnées de nouveaux services. Dans cet environnement innovant de données de plus en plus abondantes et complexes, la DSNA doit délivrer à l’usager une information aéronautique fiable, utile, à jour et sans délai.
