    Implementation of Australia’s OneSky civil-military air traffic management system has slipped by at least two years as Airservices Australia, the Australian MoD and Thales still try to work oput the details for the programme.

    The Australian announced Thales as the successful contractor for the $460 million programme at the 2015 Avalon air show. The project will see the replacement of Airservices’ civil ATC and Defence ATC systems combined into a single, harmonised system (that’s the theory). Both current civil and military ATC systems are approaching the end of their service lives and are unable to cope with forecast traffic growth.

    Under the original plan, the new CMATS was to be implemented in phases, starting in 2018 and resulting in final operational capability in 2020/21.

    CMATS full operational capability is now expected in 2023, with transition activities starting in 2018
