Eurocontrol’s Maastricht Upper Area Control Center (MUAC) is collaborating with NAV Portugal to assess its new surveillance data processing system.  
NAV Portugal now uses the Tracker Quality Monitoring tool to assess the assessment of its surveillance performance.  Now the Portuguese Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) is teaming up with MUAC to validate the tool against the new Eurocontrol Specification for ATM Surveillance System Performance (ESASSP). 

"A similar cooperation was established between MUAC and Austro Control in December 2013 whereby the partners assessed a new surveillance infrastructure performance standard using Wide Area Multilateration and Enhanced Mode-S data," Eurocontrol said.
