AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL THE NETHERLANDS (ATC-NL) is a Dutch independent administrative organisation that is responsible for providing air traffic services to civil air traffic in the Dutch airspace in a safe, efficient, and environmentally sensible way. In the Dutch Aviation Act this and all other tasks of ATC-NL have been laid down. Besides the provision of air traffic services these tasks consist of the provision of communication, navigation and surveillance services (including the modernization and management of these technical systems), giving aeronautical information, catering for air traffic control training and providing aviation charts and publications. In short, ATC-NL is responsible for the control of Dutch civil airspace as well as parts of the North Sea area and everything related. ATC-NL became operational  in 1923 and since 1993 as an so called "Independent Administrative Body (ZBO)".

General information about this tender
ATC-NL wants to innovate and make all forms of aviation possible together with our sector partners. We want to be a facilitator, a connector and a body that helps realize aviators' ambitions (corporate vision). We want to pave the way for new airspace users whilst guaranteeing the safety of all airspace users. ATC-NL wants to realize the safe integration of drones into the airspace.
ATC-NL is appointed as provider of Air Traffic Services (ATS) by law within the Amsterdam Flight Information Region and is therefore responsible for ensuring a safe, orderly and smooth flow of air traffic (Article 5.23 of the Dutch Aviation Act). To fulfill this responsibility, ATC-NL has constructed and developed a reliable ATM system.

Realization of UTM system 
Drones, and the way they should be handled from an air traffic management perspective, is a new type of operation for ATC-NL. Although a lot is similar to manned air traffic, specific requirements need to be developed to properly support UAS. This program must be seen as an innovating development at ATC-NL and within aviation in general. Innovation is all about exploring (im)possibilities, making choices, evaluating, cooperation. Sometimes mistakes will be made, and rework is necessary. The level of uncertainty associated with this program is high; UTM is still in its infancy and the available technology evolves at a revolutionary pace. The purpose of the program is to gain knowledge and experience with a UTM system and to add to the combined European ANSP knowledge of services for UAS traffic management. At this time, ATC-NL does not envision financial compensation for providing Air Traffic Services for drone activities in the CTR during the test and trial phases.

Please note that further detailed information regarding the scope of supply can be found in the Invitation to Tender.
