Note

The AN-Conf/12 is expected to consider and endorse the proposed “aviation system block upgrades” methodology and the accompanying communications, navigation, surveillance, avionics and AIM roadmaps. The block upgrades and the roadmaps will then form the backbone of a Global Air Navigation Plan, which will also be introduced to the Conference, leading to the concept of “One Sky”.
