Boeing has released the high-level system performance requirements for a future global air traffic management (ATM) system. Two teams will now focus on refining the requirements for a US system and generating specific requirements for users of European and transatlantic airspace. The 100 page-plus document is the result of Boeing's ATM "working together team" comprising 40 organisations. The document claims to offer a "single, integrated, system view" of the performance users will require in 2011-2020. This will be used to generate, compare and select operational concepts in the next phases. A separate European team is being formed.
