As part of the policy on continuous improvement and adaptation of its master program to meet technological evolutions, air transport jobs, and to better answer to the needs of the global Air Navigation Industry, ENAC created a new Advanced Master Air Navigation System Engineering and Operations which replaces 3 former advanced masters: MS aviation and Air Traffic Management, MS Air Ground Collaborative System Engineering and MS Communication Navigation Surveillance.

The MS ANSEO integrates the topics of the former masters by offering a systematic and global approach of the Air Navigation systems: on-ground (communication systems, navigation systems, surveillance systems, automated air traffic control systems), onboard (Satellite and avionics systems), and its operational methods (Air Traffic Management).

Aims of the MS ANSEO:

Commercial air transport Business should double before 20 years according to the most realistic forecasts. Therefore ICAO, States, Authorities of the Civil aviation should anticipate and prepare technically and operationally this growth by, establishing and implementing an effective global air navigation services system, absorbing the air traffic growth by a more integrated flight management into their different phases, reducing waiting times on the ground or during flight, and implementing new optimized operational concepts for eco-effective trajectories.

Training program objectives

The new advanced master “Air Navigation Systems Engineering and Operations ", MS ANSEO, is based on a systemic approach of Ai Navigation System, on a unique and integrated program with opened to three operational options: ATM, CNS/GNSS, and Avionics. The MS ANSEO role is to educate a new generation of Air Navigation Systems experts providing up-to-date skills and transverse knowledge to develop and operate the Air Navigation System meeting the worldwide Air Transport challenges.

Future graduates of the MS ANSEO will be qualified managers of interdisciplinary teams to develop or to improve technical Air Navigation System, whether at sub-systems level (plane, ground, management of air traffic) or at architecture system integrating interactions between these sub-systems.
Thanks to their high techniques monitoring, legal and regulations awareness of the global Air Navigation System, they will be able to monitor, to optimize systems evolution, whether it is at the equipment level or at the system level, or to propose operational and technical roadmaps, and to define the development and operational standards.
So, whether it is for senior or for junior engineers in their first years of their professional life, the MS ANSEO will give them the best means, after their graduation, the understanding of the complexity of technical Air Navigation systems, to allow them to develop adapted solutions, to make the decisions and to take the most relevant technical and operational choice meeting their particular needs satisfying of the worldwide overall objectives.

The option "ATM" prepares future engineers for developing and improving the operational efficiency of air navigation systems and air traffic management operations by a thorough knowledge of interactions between various actors of the air transport.

The option “Avionics” prepares future engineers for designing, developing, integrating or the testing, as well as for the certification or maintenance of any avionics systems, thanks to their comprehensive mastering of legal, regulatory, technical and operational associated aspects.

The option "CNS/gnss" prepares future engineers for developing technical infrastructure, implementing advanced systems ensuring air navigation services, such as communication, navigation (including GNSS) and surveillance, and in particular the navigation systems by satellite, thanks to their comprehensive mastering of legal, regulatory, technical and operational associated aspects.
