Development of air navigation and avionics technologies led to solve the problems that conventional ATM system had. The International Civil Aviation Organization developed the Aviation System Block Upgrades (ASBU) initiative in order to harmonize global ATM planning and technology upgrades and urged to implement the recommendations for the member States. The ASBUs provide the road map to assist air navigation service providers in the development of their individual strategic plans and investment decisions. In this paper, the operational concepts in 2 performance improvement areas, Airport Operations and Globally Interoperable System and Data in ASBUs, have been summarized. In Airport Operations area the new management technologies and required systems are presented for optimizing the traffic flow in airport area and terminal airspace. Data format standards and required systems presented for information integration and usage of the new system under Globally Interoperable System and Data area.
