Implementing Partners

Leader: NATS


AF5 iSWIM is primarily an enabler for other PCP elements that deliver benefits in safety, capacity, cost-effectiveness and environment, in AF1, AF3, AF4 and AF6, System Wide Information Management (SWIM) concerns the development of services for information exchange. SWIM comprises standards, infrastructure and governance enabling the management of information and its exchange between operational stakeholders via interoperable services, Initial System Wide Information Management (iSWIM) supports information exchanges that are built on standards and delivered through an internet protocol (IP)-based network by SWIM enabled systems and will be delivered in the following blocks
o S-AF5.1: Common Infrastructure Components
o S-AF5.2: SWIM Technical Infrastructure and Profiles
o S-AF5.3: Aeronautical information exchange
o S-AF5.4: Meteorological information exchange
o S-AF5.5: Cooperative network information exchange
o S-AF5.6: Flight information exchange
,NATS proposal is to deliver a core Enterprise Information Service (EIS) capability to interconnect ATM services within centres, with Airports and other users and to underpin and enable later stages of information exchange by Flight Object. The feasibility and options considering the most suitable colour profiles for the core EIS is the prime action in this 2014 funding call. To enable information exchanges of this nature, a number of NATS core systems (primarily Networks, FDP, AIS and Meteo) also require update and enhancement. By their nature, these enhancements need to be carried out first and form the other sub-action elements of this 2014 funding call. Provision of full Flight Object exchange and IOP are expected to be part of future funding requests.
