SESAR was the first specific R&D programme for the modernisation and homogenisation of air traffic control in the European Union. This ambitious programme comprises more than 300 projects and is financed equally by the European Commission, Eurocontrol and European Industry, with more than 1.6 billion euros through a Joint Undertaking. The programme was executed between 2009 and 2016. Ineco participated in the Program as an affiliate of its shareholder Enaire, a founding partner of SESAR Joint Undertaking. It participated in all program areas (Route, TMA, Airport and Transversal Areas) as part of more than twenty projects. Ineco played an important role as leader of the WP6, Airport Operations, on behalf of Enaire.
Participation in SESAR has helped keep Ineco on the forefront of developments in the field of Air Navigation and maintain its prestige as an agent in this area at European level.
Ineco is continuing its participation in SESAR 2020, the successor to SESAR, which will run from 2016 to 2022, with Ineco once again playing an important role.
