What is OneSKY?
The OneSKY Australia Program is the most complex transformation of air traffic management in Australian aviation history. It’s a partnership between Airservices and the Department of Defence, replacing existing air traffic management systems with an advanced integrated system known as the Civil Military Air Traffic Management System (CMATS). OneSKY was established to deliver more efficient air services, support future air traffic growth and enhance national security. The program will deliver more than $1.2 billion of economic benefits to Australian airspace users over 20 years.
2022: Release Zero
Defence legacy system replacement commences and support system established. This initial release includes mission systems deployed at defence sites in East Sale, Amberley, Tindal and Pearce. Support System equipment will also be deployed at Amberley and at an Airservices facility in Melbourne.
2023: Release One
Defence and Airservices legacy systems replaced. The next major release includes deployment of mission and support system equipment at the remaining sites of Melbourne, Brisbane, Darwin, Townsville, Williamtown, Nowra, Perth and Sydney. Release Zero sites will also be upgraded to Release One systems.
2024: Release Two
Full capability provided. The final release will see all Australian sites upgraded to realise the full capability being delivered under OneSKY, establishing a harmonised air traffic management system for all Australian airspace users.
Shaping the industry
Next generation technology
Airservices is delivering five advanced technology initiatives under the OneSKY Program, harmonising Australia’s civil and military air traffic management into one seamless system that’s built to enhance the safety, efficiency and capacity of the Australian air traffic network.
OneSKY is delivering purpose-built Airservices buildings to house and support CMATS and its associated operations room as Airservices transitions to the new system.
As the existing system must be maintained until CMATS is operational, establishing an alternate facility with independent systems ensures a seamless transition for airspace users without interruption to services.
Enabling the benefits
Airservices is optimising the capabilities delivered through OneSKY into practical solutions for Australian airspace users. These capabilities include business continuity, shared use airspace, improved productivity, trajectory based operations and route optimisation.
