4th SESAR SWIM Master Class with participation of railML.org
On the 23rd of June 2015 the launch event of the 4th SESAR SWIM Master Class took place in Brussels. This year also railML.org was represented with an information booth and a presentation.
The SESAR SWIM Master Class is an event organised by EUROCONTROL. The European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation (short: EUROCONTROL) is an international organisation coordinating air traffic control in Europe. SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research Programme) was initiated by them and is comparable with railML in the aviation sector. The aim of this initiative is to reduce costs, increase capacity and safety and protect the environment by the standardization, alignment and synchronisation of the European Air Traffic Management. Within SESAR the concept of SWIM (System Wide Information Management) exists, which similar to railML deals with data exchange.
Vasco Paul Kolmorgen, railML.org-coordinator, was enthusiastic about SESAR and SWIM and underlined, that he would be pleased to find further opportunities for cooperation in future. “EUROCONTROL has already developed its programme SESAR so much further than railML.org. Especially in the field of governance and the development in the working groups, we have to learn a lot from them!” was his final statement.
