ROMATSA is in the process of launching a major ATM development project with the objective to renew the current ATM system with a new one, fully compliant with the SESAR standards and European Commission regulations. The project is called “ATM System 2015+”.
Before launching any formal procedure, ROMATSA seeks for a preliminary feedback from any interested economic operators on any relevant aspect of the project: organisation, timescale, operational goals and foreseen technical solutions. ROMATSA therefore decided to initiate information exchanges with ATM system providers through the present Request for Information (RFI) which guarantees equal access to information, transparency and equity.
ROMATSA invites suppliers to submit an information package which will cover the technical, operational and safety aspects, containing their currently available technology, products and solution for the establishment of our ATM system 2015+. The information provided in the initial technical information will be used in finalizing a tender for the procurement of ATM system 2015+ with an aim for contract signing within the fiscal year of 2012.

The impact of transport on our social and economic life made it become the corner stone of the modern society. As Arnold J. Toynbee appreciated, during the short lasting of a single life, the modern technique placed the whole world in sudden connection, by removing the distances. All the peoples, cultures, religious communities on the globe achieved a direct physical contact with each other, today, for the first time in history.
The present development stage of the civilization has an unpreceding increase of the material and spiritual exchange amount, as a main feature, and this involves an increase of the number of travelers, moving, due to various reasons, to and from all the Earth areas. Within this environment, competing with the other transport means, the air transport becomes more and more outstanding, offering:
• A peak of safety
• Maximum speed
• The highest rank of comfort.
As far as the air transport industry is concerned, the success is not easy to come ; it is the result of a multitude of intricate aeronautical activities, before, during and following to the actual performance of the flight.
Within these aeronautical activities, the air traffic services play a leading part, as they mean:
• The air traffic control within the Romanian airspace and on the airport manoeuvring surface;
• The aeronautical information;
• The aeronautical weather information;
• The aeronautical fixed and mobile telecommunication;
• The technical protection of the air navigation;
• The alert in view of the search and rescue for the aircraft in emergency conditions.
The definite aim of the air traffic services is to provide all the airspace users with the maximum freedom of movement, under safety and economic efficiency conditions, at the same time protecting the environment and fulfilling the national safety requirements.
