The development of air traffic control technology is very important to the development of civil aviation industry. Air transport t industry is one of the main contributors to the global economic prosperity, long term sustained traffic growth can promote technological development, in China, this is still a gap compared the concept of next generation ATM systems operation, core technology, ATM equipment, system structure and standards with developed countries. Part of the ATM technology and equipment is still dependent on foreign companies, China urgently needs to improve the technology and equipment research and independent innovation capacity of the air ATM industry, to promote the overall technical progress of the industry, enhance international influence.
Based on the achievements of ‘12th Five-Year Plan’, during ‘13th Five-Year Plan’, civil aviation air traffic management industry will be driven by innovation and market traction, focus on ATM infrastructure construction, lean operation management, application of new technologies, flight operation collaborative environment, general aviation service support system and UAV ATM research and etc. … In the face of growing demand for the development of civil aviation transportation industry, strengthen the innovation of the civil aviation industry system, increase the importance of ATM system, to improve and perfect the ATM technical and equipment facilities, deepen the domestic and international ATM technology information exchange, make the ATM system a reliable guarantee for civil aviation transportation industry, as the strong support of economic development.
