Single European Sky Air Transport Management Research (SESAR), is the collective research of the Single European Sky, and the University of Westminster's project was competing against a wide field of large industry projects and academic research initiatives across Europe. It was highlighted that this was one of the only research projects to put the passenger at the centre of research.
POEM did this by building the first full simulation of European airspace to include explicit passengers and airline costs. It demonstrated how new flight prioritisation procedures were superior to the current rules and resulted in win-win performance outcomes for airlines and passengers.
