Leader: DFS


The deployment of an Arrival Management System (AMAN) at EDDL, EDDK (both AMAN NRW) and EDDB (AMAN BER) will close two of the gaps identified in the 2015 Deployment Programme as well as deploy up to three so called Families as laid down by the SESAR Deployment Manager within the Deployment Programme 2015 on the basis of implementing the Pilot-Common-Project Regulation EU No. 716/2014. Therewith, deploying advanced operational concepts such as but not limited to continuous calculation of arrival sequences and automated sequence support in a timely, coordinated and synchronized effort to raise capacity and improve safety while minimizing aviation's environmental footprint by reduced holdings. The deployment of AMAN NRW and AMAN BER shall:

  • Improve sequencing and metering of arriving aircraft incl. control of approaching aircraft and reduce overloads.

  • Continuously calculate arrival sequences and times for flights, taking into account the locally defined landing rate, the required spacing for flights arriving to the runway and other critical criteria.

  • Provide automated sequencing support for the Air Traffic Controllers (ATCOs) handling traffic arriving to an airport.

  • Provide as a minimum simple Time To Lose / Time To Gain.,AMAN NRW and AMAN BER will support the ATCOs in times of holding or delay, e.g. with the display of
    holdingtimes.,AMAN NRW and AMAN BER will reduce the coordination effort between approach and centre sectors in terms of the flow of approaching aircrafts and therewith increasing ATCOs productivity.,AMAN NRW and AMAN BER will provide the ATCOs with a tool-based support in the arrival process especially to accomplish air traffic increase and with a display of the predicted "Remaining Trackmiles" for each aircraft.,AMAN NRW and AMAN BER will also implement the technical capability for the implementation of the Extended Horizon Function for EDDL and EDDB.
