The Program


The Sydney Basin Airspace Modernisation Program (SBASM) is concerned with modernising the Sydney basin airspace services, by transitioning the provision of the Terminal Control Unit (TCU) service from Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (KSA) to our Melbourne Air Traffic Service Centre (ATSC).  The transition to Melbourne will enhance service resilience and implement a like-for-like transition to meet Civil Military Air Traffic Management System (CMATS) technical requirements.
