Brian Bruckbauer HeadshotATCA has ambitious goals in 2023 and beyond, and we’re excited to offer you, our members, the ability to participate in the many professional development opportunities we have planned. Whether you attend our events or serve on a committee to shape the future of our events, publications, membership, or by providing or receiving mentorship, ATCA is here to support you. We look forward to sharing even more opportunities for you to get involved very soon.

Shortly after I became your President and CEO, I spoke to many of you about the direction ATCA should take in the future.  Almost all of you recommended that ATCA shift our focus to supporting the full integration of all airspace users into our domestic and international airspace. With this new focus, we re-branded our ATCA Annual Conference to become ATCA Global, with airspace integration woven into all facets of the conference from exhibits to programming. Given the success of ATCA Global, together with ATCA’s strong international support, we’re delivering our airspace integration conference model to other parts of the world.

That is why we are thrilled to host our inaugural Airspace Integration Congress in Madrid in September 2023. Unlike other events, we are discussing all aspects of integration including commercial space, civil-military cooperation, advanced air mobility, uncrewed vehicles, air traffic management, and commercial aviation. We look forward to welcoming you to a week-long event that not only discusses the theoretical applications on integrations but also demonstrates current technologies utilizing live in-person displays. Stay tuned for more details to be released soon.

There is much to look forward to this year, and I plan on sharing more soon.

ATCA is back, we’re better, and we’re extremely happy to have your support.
