UK CAA launches latest round of funding to support airspace modernisation

The UK Civil Aviation Authority has launched its latest round of funding to help support airspace modernisation projects across the United Kingdom.

The Airspace Modernisation Support Fund (ASF) is part of the regulator’s work in setting out a vision for the future of UK airspace, which will help deliver quicker, quieter and cleaner journeys.

So far, the UK Civil Aviation Authority has supported organisations such as Trax and Custom Chess Company to further work that will contribute towards airspace modernisation, such as the interoperability of electronic conspicuity systems and improving Flight Information Display documentation. Successful applicants to the previous fund allocations have also included organisations looking into the digitisation of flight data, and research towards distribution of aircraft noise.

The Fund – which amounts to GBP2 million annually – gives the opportunity for organisations to seek financial support that cannot be funded by other means. Eligible projects must support the ambitions of the Airspace Modernisation Strategy and be from organisations actively engaged in modernising UK airspace.

The call for applications is open from 19 June 2023 until 21 July 2023. A further call for proposals will open later in the year.
