Boeing has sealed an agreement with the European Air Traffic Alliance consortium under which it will participate in the definition phase of the Single European Sky research initiative known as SESAR, writes David Kaminski-Morrow.

SESAR will develop a European air traffic management masterplan to cope with traffic demands to 2020 and beyond.

Boeing will contribute to four areas: market analysis of the ATM role; setting of performance requirements; selection of target ATM concepts; and identification of a transition schedule for a new ATM system.
