Over the last eighteen months, a project team from the European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation has worked with a task force drawn from regulators and Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) to draft guidelines for contingency planning. The intention is to help Air Traffic Management (ATM) organisations prepare for the potential loss of a major unit following possible scenarios that include but are not limited to systems failure, terrorist actions, floods, fires and pandemics. As part of this work, a study was conducted to identify current and best practice in contingency planning. This paper provides a brief introduction to the different architectures that were identified. The intention is to help service providers identify the different ways in which they can prepare resources for a wide range of threats to key components of national safety-critical infrastructures.
