In line with the vision of its General Manager and the strategic orientations validated by its Member States, notably through resolutions of its Committee of Ministers and its Board of Directors, the Agency for the Safety of Air Navigation in Africa (ASECNA) is committed to developing solutions likely to significantly improve the safety and efficiency of flights in the African airspace. It is within this framework that it has chosen to deploy satellite-based augmentation services and specifically the provision of Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) services in Africa.
