Air Traffic Infrastructure
Global Markets 2012
The world’s air traffic infrastructure (ATI) and its complex modernization programs are at a technical, policy and financial crossroad. As air traffic volumes recover from the latest global recession, congestion and gridlock are again becoming visible. But aviation infrastructure continues to erode. Governments are broke and must turn to new fees, taxes, and private sources of funding for infrastructure renewal. Disruptive new technologies and regional differences in the vision of future ATI architectures will challenge the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) and Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) programs. Airlines, coming out of a difficult decade of losses, find that they may foot most of the bill for ATI modernization, whether through investment in avionics or through increased user fees to pay for new ground infrastructure. Airlines are quickly realizing that they are and should be the new gate keepers for ATI modernization. All the while, aerospace companies are trying to understand the new ATI market dynamics, as corporate acquisitions work their way back into merger and acquisition agendas for 2013.
