EUROCONTROL, the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation, is an intergovernmental Organisation with 41 Member States, committed to building, together with its partners, a Single European Sky that will deliver the air traffic management performance required for the 21st century and beyond. We help our Member States to run safe, efficient and environmentally-friendly air traffic operations.

Within the Network Manager, the NMD/SC/SCC Unit coordinates all Network Management work in the areas of Surveillance and Code Management to improve the operation of the network in terms of capacity, safety and cost-efficiency. SCC enables network performance by ensuring the good operation of surveillance systems within ATM infrastructure already deployed in Europe.  A necessary part of this is managing the scarce resources used - such as Interrogator codes and 1030/1090 MHz RF band.  By monitoring the interoperability between aircraft avionics and ground surveillance systems SCC staff analyse data recordings for their correct functioning.  Any detected issues and anomalies are resolved to maintain a safe and efficient network.  

SCC provides services to NM users and member states by providing unique surveillance expertise that could not be maintained in each State. SCC also supports the evolution and modernisation of surveillance, assesses new systems from an NM perspective, and contributes in the development of standards, such as for ADS-B, WAM and MSPSR.
