Conference paper


The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) is conducting many enhancements in order to improve Air Traffic Management (ATM). It all began in 1991 due to the expected increase in civil aviation. The project is known as Communication, Navigation, Surveillance / Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) and foresees the use of more satellite information associated with automated systems. As a result, there could be an increase in air traffic movement, keeping or even increasing safety requirements.
