SWIM Benefits

The Benefits of SWIM

System Wide Information Management (SWIM) is part of the NextGen portfolio of programs and is critical to ensuring all stakeholders can communicate with each other. SWIM will allow airline operations, air traffic managers and controllers, Federal Air Marshals, military, and other stakeholders to share information in near real time.

SWIM helps to reduce costs & increase agility. Do more with less.The SWIM program focuses on improving National Airspace System (NAS) in the following ways:

  • SWIM makes it possible to have access to real-time, relevant aeronautical, flight, and weather information so users (both within the NAS and outside of the NAS) can respond faster and more accurately.
  • SWIM helps to reduce implementation and operating costs and increase agility for the air traffic community … to do more with less.
  • SWIM creates collaboration opportunities across borders and with industry to address some of aviation's most complex problems.
