According to the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 716/2014 on the establishment of the Pilot Common Project, the Advanced Flexible Use of Airspace (AFUA) aims to provide the possibility to manage airspace reservations/structures more dynamic and flexible in response to airspace user requirements. Changes in airspace status shall be shared with all concerned users, in particular Network Manager, air navigation service providers and airspace users. ASM (Airspace Management) procedures and processes shall cope with an environment where airspace is managed dynamically with no fixed- route network.

At present, airspace management activities are performed at national level with no specific automatic support. The first objective of this project is to implement LARA (Local And sub-Regional ASM support system) as the national ASM support tool which complies with all the systems requirements included in PCP regulation. LARA also fulfils the compulsory activities established in the Commission Regulation (EC) No 2150/2005 laying down common rules for the Flexible Use of Airspace (FUA).

On the other hand, according to the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 390/2013 laying down a Performance Scheme for air navigation services and network functions, the performance plans shall contain a description of the civil-military dimension of the plan describing the performance of FUA application in order to increase capacity with due regard to military mission effectiveness, and, if deemed appropriate, relevant performance indicators (KPI) and targets in consistency with other indicators and targets of the performance plan.

The second objective of this project is to implement PRISMIL (Pan-European Repository of Information Supporting Military) as the national programme for the implementation and monitoring of automated data collection, supporting KPIs implementation required by the Performance Scheme.
