Selex Systemi Integrati and Boeing have signed a memorandum of collaboration aimed at improving the compatibility of global air traffic management (ATM) systems.

The companies will collaborate on the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) programme and the US Next Generation Air Transportation (NextGen) programme.

Boeing Flight Services Air Traffic Management vice-president Neil Planzer said: "Global interoperability is achievable through strong collaboration of government and private sector leaders in air traffic management in both the US NextGen and European SESAR initiatives."

The American company said that as it will be critical to establish common standards to harmonize air traffic management systems and ensure that aircraft can fly in all regions of the world as newer technologies, such as four-dimensional trajectory management, information management and performance-based navigation are developed.
