The output of the first SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) Joint Undertaking programme, known as SESAR 1 that ran from 2008 to 2016, has permitted to demonstrate that the use of meteorology information is still sub-optimal in the ATM sector, resulting in a concrete decrease of capacity, efficiency and lower safety level.
The System Wide Infrastructure Management (SWIM) which is the new intranet for Air Traffic Management (ATM) has opened new opportunities for innovation in ATM by allowing access to a multiple source of data and services from ATM stakeholders.
In this context of innovation, a team of ATM and MET experts decide to bring together experience, expertise, skills and knowledge to explore innovative ATM services through a Business to Business services system : MetSafe services’ platform is born.
Building on the experience gained in SWIM Master Classes, MetSafe was created in 2017 following 18 months of intensive and agile software development.
This innovative platform delivers core and expert services through an Application Programming Interface (API), powered by Météo-France global products.
