Mini Global I is an open communications infrastructure that allows Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs), airlines, and other stakeholders to exchange flight, weather, and aeronautical information using the following open standards: Flight Information Exchange Model (FIXM), Aeronautical Information Exchange Model (AIXM), and Weather Information Exchange Model (WXXM).

Mini Global II will focus on the connectivity and data sharing between multiple Enterprise Messaging Services (EMSs). It will identify global policies, protocols, security, and business sensitivity requirements, mediate between diverse EMSs, and provide an infrastructure for future applications/services to benefit Global Air Traffic Management (ATM). It will extend the list of international partnerships and aviation stakeholders to support the validation of FIXM/AIXM/WXXM standards by using additional datasets in supporting complex use cases. The goal of Mini Global II is to further advance the technology and demonstrate future applications by exploiting the capabilities of this infrastructure.


Attendance at the facility is limited and is on a first come first serve basis. However, a webcast will be provided for those that cannot attend in person.
