Jane’s invites readers to submit nominations for the next edition of our ATC Awards, held each year since 2001.
At a time of increasing air traffic, it is more important than ever to highlight work to improve safety, capacity, efficiency, and environmental performance – so we are delighted to offer you the opportunity to nominate innovative, field-proven technologies and projects.
Entries are free of charge and open to organisations in all areas of the global ATC industry, be they national air navigation service providers, large-scale industry partnerships, or new entrants to the sector.
You can nominate your own organisation/company or a third party. Nominations are limited to one per organisation, although you can be named as a partner in other entries.
The deadline for nominations is 8 December 2017 . A panel of experts from IATA, ICAO, IFATCA, SESAR JU, FAA, ECTL, and IHS Markit will assess the entries before shortlisting them into the six categories mentioned below.
Jane’s will reveal the shortlisted nominations in January, before the winners are announced on 6 March 2018 during the World ATM Congress in Madrid.
ATC Awards 2018: the categories
Enabling Technology: for contributions to enhanced capacity and safety
Environment: to recognise work on green ATM concepts
Industry: reflecting a significant contribution by equipment suppliers
Technology: for small enterprises that have raised ATM performance
Service Provision: for contributions to safe and efficient airspace management

As a guide, the judges award points for the following:
• An improvement in safety, capacity, and efficiency that is quantified
• A customer assessment of the performance of a product or service
• A new concept that delivers measurable benefit
• Activity which goes beyond the scope of normal operations by an organisation or individual
• Collaborative activity that results in cost savings, sharing best practise, and improving safety
• Innovation in any area of air traffic control
