Abstract This paper presents a framework for transitioning Air Traffic Management (ATM) functions to cloud computing, for cost savings, and gains in performance and efficiency. With the established framework, initial analysis was carried out for NAS automation systems. The analysis revealed that it is technically feasible to transition most of the ATM functions to the cloud computing environment, with benefits significant to both the system owner and NAS end users. A study of recent development in the field also revealed that, while challenges exist, with the proper alignment of technical and investment decisions, transitioning of ATM functions to the cloud computing environment can be achieved much faster, and that it is already happening.
