The project aims at procuring and deploying, in cooperation with ANSPs, Airports, Airlines, MET Providers and Military, the New Pan-European Network Services (NewPENS) network, an IP services based Ground-Ground network that will replace the current PENS to support all SWIM information Exchanges in order to become the unique international ATM network in the ICAO EUR/ΝΑΤ Region.
Under the auspices of the European Commission, a coordination exercise took place between EUROCONTROL, and the ANSPs of the A6 Alliance to jointly develop the NewPENS Governance structure. A Common Procurement Agreement (CPA) has been developed and in September 2016, 35 stakeholders (including Belgocontrol) have already signed it. The project is coordinated by EUROCONTROL.
