Eurocontrol and iTEC have agreed to develop interoperability constituents to in pursuit of SESAR's goals for a free and open sky across Europe.

The founding members of the iTEC collaboration, which includes some of the largest air navigation service providers in Europe, signed an agreement with Eurocontrol involving the joint development of Flight Object Manager (FOM) and the System-wide Information Management (SWIM) software, facilitating the future exchange of flight path information.
