|Deployment Scenario Title
Dynamic airspace configuration
|Deployment Scenario Description
|Dynamic airspace configuration: the objective is to improve the use of airspace capacity for both civil and military users by increasing the granularity and the flexibility of airspace configuration and management within and across ANSPs’ areas of responsibilities. This will result in the integration of concepts and procedures to allow flexible sectors that can be dynamically modified according to demand. This includes potential implications for ATCO licences, international boundaries, and potentially interoperability and air-ground multi-datalink communication capabilities.
