The paper explains why a new approach, both broader and more rigorous than that traditionally followed in ATM, is needed for the safety assessment of the major operational and technology changes that are planned for introduction into European ATM over the period up to 2020 and beyond. It presents the theoretical basis for what is a “systems-engineering approach” and describes how that is being applied to the preliminary work on the safety assessment of the SESAR Operational Concept.
