2016_055_AF3_FR_Upgrade of French Military Control and Reporting Centres (CRC) for civil- military interoperability Planned

Project number:  2016_055_AF3

Country: France

Leader:  French MOD

Description:

This implementation Project (IP) aims at upgrading the French Control and Reporting Centres (CRCs) to maintain interoperability with French Civil Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) Air Traffic Control (ATC) system (4Flight).

This Implementation Project is a prerequisite to the operational deployment of 4flight in civil Air Traffic Control (ATC) centres to assure the non-deterioration of the civil-military IOP (interoperability) services that were made available using CAUTRA (previous civil ATC system). To maintain interoperability from the outset of 4Flight implementation plan (including test phases) military had to develop a programme to upgrade military systems.

This upgrade solution should provide military CRC with the indispensable capability to receive and process civil fight plans, and to perform any coordination activities between civil and military controllers which are necessary to provide simultaneously en-route services, and to perform air policy and search and rescue missions.

This project is also a prerequisite to the implementation of Free route in French airspace as it relies on a robust civil/military coordination.

The project encompasses two main objectives:

-The upgrade of current military CRC system to maintain civil-military interoperability during all the 4Flight deployment phase and from 2018 the implementation of a specific interface that will allow exchange of Air Traffic Management (ATM) data between 4flight and the next generation of CRC system planned to be deployed during the same period.

-The deployment adress directly the upgrade of the ATM systems, precisely between civil ATC and military AD system. It will enable Flight Data Processing System (FDPS) functions of the CRC system to data correlation as well as flight identification which is also one of the main functions of the Air Defense (e.g in the cross-border control).

This new capacity will also prepare the deployment of the foundations for the upgrades of the Air Space Management (ASM) for Free Route Airspace (FRA) management. Military system will be able to process flight data for Direct (DCT) flights.

ATM System Upgrade Towards Free Route Airspace Ongoing

Project number:  2016_085_AF3

Country: Poland

Leader:  PANSA

Description:

This Implementation Project implemented by PANSA (Polish ANSP) aims to develop PANSA ATM System according to the requirements of the Pilot Common Project (PCP) in two parallel paths:

- Path 1 – Achievement of the PCP-required functionalities, in particular Direct Routings/Free Route Airspace (DCT/FRA) (Family 3.2.1) in the current P_21 system till 2017/2018;

- Path 2 – Transfer of the achieved P_21 functionalities to the iTEC-based system and further joint developments within the iTEC Collaboration.

Within Path1, this PANSA P_21 Upgrade1 will allow to enhance functions needed to implement Direct/FRA operations. It will be a continuation of a series of planned upgrades of the PANSA P_21 Air Traffic Management (ATM) system. The system already has some functionalities supporting DCTs/FRA, but this upgrade project will include Flight Data Processing System (FDPS), Safety-Net System and Human Machine Interface (HMI) modifications to fully support DCT/FRA operations. Additionally, it introduces system functionalities for exchange of extended arrival management information for flights into Berlin airport.

Within Path2, these upgraded functions will be later introduced in the next ATM system - iTEC - allowing it to evolve inside a bigger consortium, increasing interoperability. Path2 is also linked to the following CEF Implementation Projects:

- On-going Implementation Project 2014_131_AF3 (Action 2014-EU-TM-0136-M) aiming to deploy the Test and Validation Platform till the end of 2017. The Platform will be used to mitigate the risk of rejecting the iTEC-based system by PANSA Air Traffic Controllers.

- On-going Implementation Project 2016_087_AF3 (that is part of the Action) aiming to validate requirements and functionalities combined from iTEC functions and functions of the P_21 system developed up to the time of validation on the Test/Validation-Platform.

- Future Implementation Project aiming at the iTEC-based PANSA system deployment that will use functions and requirements validated.

Austro Control iSWIM Capability Infrastructure Ongoing

Project number:  2016_149_AF5

Country: Austria

Leader:  Austrocontrol

Description:

SWIM (System Wide Information Management) comprises of standards, infrastructure and governance enabling the management of information and its exchange between operational stakeholders via interoperable services. Globally, this Implementation Project aims at implementing the infrastructure part of SWIM - currently restricted to the SWIM Yellow Profile. For this purpose, Austro Control will implement an Enterprise Service Capability that enables the interconnection of service-oriented systems within Austro Control as well with European SWIM. Interconnectivity will be provided by a "SWIM Connector", which will be the access point to connect the system environment to other SWIM-enabled partners. The definition of the optimal deployment architecture for SWIM in the Austro Control environment is part of this project.

 

The Implementation Project's duration is quite long since a continuous evolution of the SWIM Connector is expected as internal and external requirements evolve:

  • Internal: Requirements stemming from the deployment of SWIM services related to other PCP elements;
  • External: The deployment of SWIM Governance and the standardisation of SWIM elements (e.g. SWIM Yellow Profile) will at least partially re-shape SWIM and thus have an impact on the deployment.

 

This Implementation Project aims at covering approximately 66% of the gap in family 5.2.2 for Austria. The remaining gap will be closed with the implementation of the SWIM Blue Profile, once its specification is available. This implementation will take place outside the scope of this project.

Several European ANSPs have shown a keen interest to join the iTEC Consortium and currently iTEC partners are talking with PANSA (Poland), Oro Navegacia (Lithuania) and two additional ANSPs in order to explore their iTEC interest and to elaborate the best way to join iTEC. It is the objective of DFS and LVNL to deploy iCAS in accordance with the deployment plan of this coordinated 2015 CEF funding application through the SESAR Deployment Manager. The potential utilization of funding through the Connecting Europe Facilities (CEF) will offset additional deployment cost for DFS and LVNL which result from an effort to enable a timely implementation of Pilot-Common-Project Functionalities and therewith facilitating an early realization of benefits for airspace users.

Deployment of an Automated Support Tool for Traffic Complexity Assessment at DFS Ongoing

Project number:  2016_024_AF4

Country: Germany

Leader:  DFS

Description:

In accordance with the Pilot Common Project (PCP) Implementing Regulation (IR) EU 716/2014 and the Deployment Programme 2016, traffic complexity tools are required and mandated for deployment in the core of European airspace. The traffic complexity tools continuously monitor sector demand and evaluate traffic complexity (by applying predefined complexity metrics) according to a predetermined qualitative scale. In particular, this project will implement a Traffic Complexity tool and procedures.

The Automated Support Tool for Traffic Complexity Assessment is a Traffic Complexity tool for automated and dynamic traffic forecasting and sectorisation planning, enabling efficient planning of both capacity and staffing at DFS control centres. The Automated Support Tool for Traffic Complexity Assessment will support Flow Management Positions (FMP) and Supervisors in the execution of tactical tasks (e.g. 3h prior to execution). Based on the information from various sources (i.e. radar data, Network Manager data including Enhanced Flight Data information, weather data, Aeronautical Information Management data and Airport Collaborative Decision Making data when available), the system will be able to automatically and periodically run fast-time simulations from which an optimised sectorisation planning is proposed to FMPs and Supervisors for efficient planning of ATSU resources. This will be based on capacity parameters such as controllers' workload and sector occupancy.

The Automated Support Tool for Traffic Complexity Assessment will be deployed in the DFS control centres in Langen, Bremen, Munich and Karlsruhe. In order to undertake a full deployment of this Local Traffic Complexity tool, an initial operational evaluation will be performed in Munich using Release 2 of the tool (the development of the tool up to Release 2 has been already performed, thus not in scope of the project, but only the operational trial itself).

Upon successfully achieving the initial operational acceptance, the Automated Support Tool for Traffic Complexity Assessment will be deployed chronologically in Munich, Bremen, Langen, and Karlsruhe. These activities include the creation of the required working procedures and according documentation, as well as the necessary training of FMPs and Supervisors on the use of the tool. In parallel to the deployment of the tool on all DFS control centres, the Automated Support Tool for Traffic Complexity Assessment will evolve, enhancing current functionalities and adding features (e.g. Capacity Analyser functions). These activities comprehend the collection of requirements, the necessary procurement for the development of the tool, the required testing prior to integration in operational environments, as well as hardware acquisition when needed.

EASI - EAD AIM System Integration Ongoing

Project number: #041AF5

Country: Germany

Leader: DFS

Description: 

The DFS project EASI will replace the current DFS system DIAS by the centrally provided EAD system in the context of AIS/ARO functions. The step to a centralised system enables the direct provision of DFS NOTAM and flightplan information via this centralised service. As soon as implemented on the EAD, this DFS information will be available in AIXM-5.1-format and DFS will directly input this data in AIXM-5.1. The abdication of a DFS-specific AIS-system reduces the complexity for the launch of AIXM-5.1 as the number of interfaces and especially parallel AIXM-5.1-implementations is limited. The effort to implement AIXM-5.1 on an internal system can then be spent to support the AIXM-5.1-implementation by EUROCONTROL on the central system. The migration to the central EAD-system is performed by the usage of standard-EAD-terminal-clients and EAD-standard-interfaces.

ENAV Network enhancement toward NewPENS Planned

Project number:  2016_118_AF5

Country: Italy

Leader:  ENAV

Description:

The Implementation Project aims at preparing the transition from a PENS (Pan European Network Services) to NewPENS for which an enhancement of the current Italian IP network connectivity is required.

The ENAV national communication infrastructure Wide Area Network (WAN) is constituted by the ENET (Ethernet) network with POPs (Point of Presence) for the delivery of PENS services. In each POP, the related MSE (Security Modules for ENET) are also present to guarantee security for any connection and data transmission/reception.

PENS network, like other external networks, is connected to ENET POPs to exchange operational data for FMTP (Flight Message Transference Protocol), AMHS (Air Traffic Services Message Handling System) and RADAR (Radio Detection and Ranging) services and connections. In this way it ensures the proper security management of national ENET Programme that is aimed at deploying the infrastructures needed for the geographical transfer of operational services and the migration to the new net infrastructure.

This project will contribute to complete the installation of such security modules all over the national territory.

ENAV Security Operational Centre (iSOC) Upgrade Planned

Project number:  2016_116_AF5

Country: Italy

Leader:  ENAV

Description:

ENAV Information Security Operation Centre (iSOC) is operated since 2009 in Rome ACC (Italy) and since then the main responsibility of iSOC is the identification of security risks related to information, systems and networks in accordance with ISO 27001 processes and standards (ENAV is ISO 27001 certified). To accomplish these objectives, ENAV iSOC implemented procedural and technical controls operated today in a single data centre, based on legacy hardware. Most of operational security services are based on Open Source software.

Today Security in ATM (Air Traffic Management) is an important topic also in Italian and European regulations (as per Directive EU 2016/1148 the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 July 2016 concerning measures for a high common level of security of network and information systems across the Union).

Every day ENAV adapts its security process and technologies to be compliant with national and international standards and to emerging threats. For this reason, ENAV is already expanding its security controls to extend centralised authentication and parsing of security logs to selected operational servers and services in all Italian Air Traffic Control Centres (ACC).

ENAV is also planning to extend Security controls to PENS (Pan European Network Services), NewPENS networks and to ATC European programmes (e.g. Coflight As a Service).

To accomplish these growing needs, ENAV iSOC infrastructure and systems shall be upgraded to new and modern systems and technologies that shall be also in a full high availability shape and granting business continuity, adapting also internal processes (incident handling and response, monitoring etc.), skills and capacity.

To extend and complete ENAV Security Services catalogue, ENAV will create also a CERT (Computer Emergency Response Team) division that will be responsible to anticipate and solve the ATM cybersecurity challenges that ENAV will face in the next few years working closely with iSOC operators.

ENAV Traffic Complexity Tool Implementation Planned

Project number:  2016_114_AF4

Country: Italy

Leader:  ENAV

Description:

Globally, the Implementation Project aims to develop the Traffic Complexity Tool. Traffic complexity tools continuously monitor sector demand and evaluate traffic complexity (by applying predefined complexity metrics) according to a predetermined qualitative scale. The predicted complexity coupled with traffic demand enables ATFCM (Air Traffic Flow and Capacity Management) to take timely action to adjust capacity, or request the traffic profile changes in coordination with ATC (Air Traffic Control), airspace users and NM (Network Manager).

In order to supplement the local traffic counts with the flight plan data and the Traffic Volume profile available from ETFMS (Enhanced Traffic Flow Management System), the local complexity tools will (if needed through B2B connection) receive, process and integrate EFD (Flight Data message) provided by NM.

Through the implementation, planned trajectory information, network information and recorded analytical data from past operations shall be used to predict traffic complexity and potential overload situations, allowing mitigation strategies to be applied at local and network levels. Extended Flight Plan (EFPL) shall be used to enhance the quality of the planned trajectory information thus enhancing flight planning and complexity assessments.

The design and system development are part of this project, the implementation will be executed in the context of a separate project. The Implementation Project uses the specifications developed under the CEF call 2014- #062AF4 project "ENAV initiative for the identification of Network Collaborative Management requirements" (2014-EU-TM-0136-M).

European Deployment Roadmap for Flight Object Interoperability Ongoing

Project number:  2016_027_AF5

Country: Germany

Leader:  DFS

Description:

A European roadmap for the deployment of Flight Object (FO) interoperable ATM systems taking into consideration planned industrialisation activities is strongly needed to achieve a timely, synchronised and coordinated deployment across Europe.

The main objective of this Implementation Project is to identify, agree, and commit to essential and critical aspects required for a successful FO deployment in Europe. The project shall implement the deployment objectives and targets from the roadmap under the framework of the SESAR Deployment Manager to the SESAR Deployment Programme (DP) aiming at further elaborating and detailing DP Family 5.6.2. Therefore, the results of the Implementation Project shall anticipate the specific deployment timelines for each concerned stakeholder. As a result, the roadmap will enable synchronised deployment taking care of the various dependencies between partners and with external developments.

The scope of the roadmap planning comprises two main activities to be encompassed. To upgrade Family 5.6.2 from medium to high maturity, it is very important to achieve the synchronisation of FO IOP (Flight Object Interoperability) industrialisation activities which are to be developed in the short term (e.g. SESAR 2020 FO IOP Validation, EUROCAE ED- 133 review). A second set of activities are associated with FO IOP deployment. These deployment activities are per se bound by the readiness of FO IOP implementation activities and are especially complex to plan with the required synchronisation from the partners.

Therefore, several planning dimensions must be taken into consideration, such as:

  • time schedules of each contributor, including common and synchronisation milestones (e.g. common integration and test activities) to be performed collaboratively,
  • external dependencies (see 'Interdependencies'), with special focus on those related to the SESAR Joint Undertaking (i.e. SESAR 2020 PJ18 and PJ27), the EUROCAE Working Group 59 and the evolution of the developments in SWIM Common Components (i.e. S-AF 5.1 and S-AF 5.2 of the DP),
  • an agreed functional requirement baseline supporting seamless coordination deployment and taking consideration of individual technical and operational constraints,
  • a governance structure to support the organisation of common projects, o the role of the roadmap inside the SESAR Deployment Programme.

A successful deployment of FO IOP will depend upon the deployment of a SWIM infrastructure as a prerequisite. Such infrastructure comprises a network environment (e.g. New PENS) and components such as a SWIM Governance, a SWIM Registry and a SWIM Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).

EUROCONTROL, NATS and Croatia Control will contribute to the project but will not receive any CEF funding support.

FAB CE wide Study of DAM and STAM - Cohesion Call Planned

Project number:  2016_075_AF3_B

Country: Slovenia          

Leader:  FABCE Ltd

Description:

FAB CE (Functional Airspace Block Central Europe) launched the Dynamic Airspace Management (DAM) /Short-Term ATFCM (Air Traffic Flow Capacity Management) Measures DAM (Dynamic Airspace Management)/STAM (Short-Term ATFCM measures) project with the goal to improve Air Space Management (ASM) processes and DAM in the FAB CE area of responsibility. This Implementation Project (IP) aims to make the FAB CE fully compliance with the Single European Sky (SES) Deployment Plan through the application of short term air traffic management measures and an increased application of flexible use of airspace (FUA) processes. This is done by addressing and bundling a set of related AF sub-families and providing a FAB CE wide roadmap for the future timely implementation of DAM /STAM processes and a closure of all existing ASM-related gaps within the FAB CE.

The IP consist of a study to determine the high level operational concept for DAM/ STAM in FAB CE and to define a roadmap for future implementation. This study is therefore directly in line with the Deployment Programme 2016. Even if the full operational capability of some included operational concepts and tools will not be available before 2022, it is the FAB CE view that a study addressing how to close all the existing gaps (gaps in all families and in all stakeholders countries) now is paramount to a timely implementation of the desired concepts and tools according the Deployment Programme schedule.

While 3.1.4 has been identified as the main family, and is identified as medium-readiness in the Deployment Program, the remaining families will have an almost equal focus and priority within the Implementation Project. They are fundamentally inter-related and essential to the success of the implementation of Dynamic Airspace Management and STAM within FAB CE. Of these families 3.1.1, 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 4.1.2 and 4.4.2 are identified as high-readiness in the Deployment Program 2016. The Implementation Project is expected to realise 70% coverage of the gap in each FAB CE State for 4.1.2 STAM Phase 2 as it is anticipated that it will be at a more mature state at the end of the Implementation Project because all FAB CE ANSPS are already in the process of implementing STAM Phase 1. For 4.4.2 Traffic Complexity Tools the Implementation Project will define a common requirement specification for the traffic complexity tool(s) that will subsequently need to be developed or procured to close the gaps in this family.

To achieve maximum benefits from dynamic airspace management, any changes in airspace status or flow control measures need to be shared with all concerned users, in particular Network Manager (NM), air navigation service providers and airspace users (Flight Operations Centre/Wing Operations Centre (FOC/WOC)).

As well as emphasising the benefit of addressing this study as a FAB CE project the study will also coordinate directly with the Network Manager. In particular the Network Manager representatives will be permanent members of the Implementation Project team organisation and this participation assures early involvement of NM views into the Implementation Project tasks, and deliverables.

Flight evolution and upgrade of interfaces with NM stakeholders Planned

Project number:  2016_008_AF4

Country: Germany

Leader:  Deutsche Lufthansa

Description:

This project aims to complement the work on the new concepts in the Flight domain, performed under IPs # 079AF4 and #082AF5 of the Action 2014-EU-TM-0136-M. It covers topics to be developed by NM after Release 21.0 (March 2017) and includes work of partners to set-up collaborative flight management.

This project has the following scope:

  • The current period until 2017 will provide an implementation strategy and related user requirements and use case descriptions. These documents will provide a clear description of how it is planned to implement the foreseen flight data evolutions within the European theatre of operations and, in particular, how operations can continue within a mixed mode in terms of both operational procedure/process and technical networks/formats, SWIM, etc.
  • Initial implementations concentrate on migration to the new format (FIXM, Flight Information Exchange Model) from the current proprietary B2B format and messages developed by NM, effectively migrating the 'EFPL' to the ICAO 'eFPL' (Electronic Flight Plan). In addition, early deployments will focus on the exchange of 4DT with AUs and a limited number of ANSPs. The period from 2017 onwards will focus on developing further the full functionality associated to FF-ICE (Flight & Flow Information for a Collaborative Environment) provisions.
  • The OAT flight plan will be implemented from 2018 onwards pending satisfactory outcome of the validation activities and the readiness of the military environment data and military flight plan originators. Implementation of the OAT (Operational Air Traffic) FPL in FIXM format is included in the scope, however the provision and, more importantly, the use of military 4DT is not expected within the same period.

In addition, this IP covers the integration of the ATC (Air Traffic Control) Flight plan Proposal (AFP).

This project is an enabler for NSP (Network Strategy Plan) Strategic Objective 5: Facilitate business trajectories and cooperative traffic management. It contributes to the NSP strategic actions: SO 4/2 and SO 5/1.

The objective is to prepare and upgrade the message exchange between the Network Manager (NM) systems and SABRE flight plan filing systems in respect of collaborative flight planning. Focus on implementation of the Extended Flight Plan (EFPL) including the planned 4D trajectory of the flight, as well as, flight performance data. To include ail potential interfaces with the data linked system in order to access to the aircraft flight data and the adaptation of the trajectory prediction sub system to integrate such additional information in SABRE flight planning system.

Met Éireann will be responsible for the sensor automation and IAA will be responsible for display and alert processing. Both parties will agree on a SWIM compliant format for data distribution. At present the existing met observations for wind, pressure & visibility are manually observed and manually entered and recorded. These readings are then transmitted to the ATS (Air Traffic Services) Units along with significant trend information. The IAA and Met Eireann need to replace existing legacy systems, and introduce a solution that will automate the entire data chain from sensor input to ATC display to meet the requirements of the DP including:
  • Meteorological information supporting Aerodrome ATC & Airport Landside process or aids involving the relevant MET information,
  • Meteorological information supporting En-Route/Approach ATC process or aids involving the relevant MET information The Met Éireann element will automate the existing sensor reading and data input,
  • Information messages and significant trend information will be made available to ATS units in real time.

The IAA displays the data enriched with alerts and notifications, which will inform controllers of changes and raise alerts/warnings in the event of significant changes. The key to the successful implementation of this Implementation Project will be message distribution, ensuring the data formats are in WXXM/iWXXM (initial Weather Information Exchange Model) formats in accordance with SWIM profile requirements, Met Eireann will be responsible for the sensor automation and processing, the IAA will retain responsibility for Data Display and alerting.

  1. Develop and verify systems for generating, disseminating, collecting and visualising standard meteorological forecast products (i.e. Terminal Aerodrome Forecast (TAF), Meteorological Aviation Routine Weather Report (METAR), Special Weather Report (SPECI), Significant Meteorological Phenomena SIGMET, warnings) that are iWXXM/iSWIM compliant is also included.

Initial AOP DUS Planned

Project number:  2016_137_AF2

Country: Germany

Leader:  Dusseldorf International

Description:

Globally, the Implementation Project aims to set up the Initial Airport Operations Plan (AOP) in Düsseldorf Airport (DUS). Additionally, to the already implemented Initial DMAN, Electronic Flight Strips (EFS) and Basic A-CDM (Airport Collaborative decision Making), Düsseldorf Airport intends to close the gap on Initial AOP by implementing different system modules so that the Airport's Operational Database will be extended in relation to the actual status of the overall capacity and resources at the airport.

The AOP information shall be shared with the local stakeholders (Information Sharing - Common Situational Awareness). It shall be implemented to be ready for the AOP - NOP (Network Operations Plan) Connection (Family 4.2.4.) to ensure the positive impact on the network level (AOP-data sending to NOP implemented). By introducing the Demand Capacity Functionality and On-Time Key Performance Indicator the A-CDM performance assessment and reporting process will be improved/implemented.

After analysing the gaps within Initial AOP compared to the external requirements (SESAR definition) DUS airport will implement demand and capacity balancing functions, What If decision making supporting tools and On time Key Performance Indicators at Düsseldorf Airport.This will improve the common situational awareness and information sharing between the airport stakeholders (also within the DUS Airport Operations Center) and ATC about the operational status of the Airport. It will furthermore optimise the turnaround processes and general throughput to ensure improved ATM stakeholders’ planning processes. Together with the concerned stakeholders it must be defined what is operationally useful and feasible.

The implementation of the system modules includes:

 - Flight trajectory data: Information sharing related to Flight Progress Information Elements of an Inbound/Outbound/airport transit Trajectory to/from/at Airport.

- Airport Resources data: Airside and landside resources such as runway capacity & configuration, or parking stands.

- Local weather data: Information sharing related to MET Information Elements of airport.

The initial AOP is the basis for a later integration of the AOP into the NOP (Family 4.2.4.) which provides a rolling picture of the network situation used by stakeholders to prepare their plans and their inputs to the network CDM processes (e.g. negotiation of airspace configurations). Also receiving the NM (Network Manager) Information is planned to make sure to exchange the information with the operational stakeholders by means of defined cooperative network information services. The data exchange between AOP and NOP should be performed by using SWIM components in the future.

LAN network upgrade Ongoing

Project number: 2015_035_AF5

Country: Poland

Leader: PANSA

Description: 

Communication infrastructure is a vital part of common tools for ATCO. Transmission and exchange of data allows to improve ATM quality. Dedicated communication (LAN) infrastructure for ATM purposes is needed for providing appropriate level of quality. Number of data in ATM is still growing from year to year. Concept of shared LAN infrastructure was sufficient few years ago, but still growing amount of data, as well as more and more demanding requirements for data transmission faced us in front of necessity of splitting data transmission infrastructure on few independent parts, where the most important will be SWIM-ready ATM operational part. Such upgrade and development for communication infrastructure is strongly related with increasing capabilities, which are required for providing appropriate security level. It will also allow to improve management of information flow, including especially integration existing legacy information solutions with SWIM environment. Such upgrade allow also to achieve required QoS level, taking into account requirements related with Blue Profile and its technical consequences. It is also strongly related with growing amount of information, as a consequence of still more intensive cooperation between identified on national level stakeholders. The project supports: AF5 in developing information infrastructure and AF 5.2.1 in developing of Stakeholder Internet Protocol Compliance. Cooperation with Military Stakeholder in this particular are allow to increase project efficiency and multiply project benefits.

RNP APCH RWY 29 Vienna Planned

Project number:  2016_147_AF1

Country: Austria

Leader:  Austrocontrol

Description:

Performance Based Navigation (PBN) in high density Terminal Manoeuvring Areas (TMAs) improves the precision of approach and departure trajectories and facilitates air traffic management whilst also reducing the environmental impact of air traffic, as well as its operational cost. PBN in high density TMAs covers the development and implementation of fuel efficient and/or environmentally friendly procedures for arrival and departure: Required Navigation Performance 1 Standard Instrument Departures (RNP 1 SIDs), Standard Arrival Routes (STARs) and transitions (to final approach) as well as various approaches (RNP APCH, such as LNAV/VNAV, LNAV (Lateral-/Vertical Navigation), and LPV (Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance) (Space Based Augmentation System (SBAS) European Geostationary Navigation Overlay (EGNOS)) procedures).

 

To funnel departure traffic at noise-critical altitudes onto tight departure corridors with turns to avoid sensitive areas, the use of RF (Radius to Fix) legs in the initial segment of SIDs is planned for all runways at LOWW and is expected to contribute greatly to a relief in the environmental exposure of neighbouring communities, whilst at the same time reducing track miles, fuel-burn and hence CO2 emissions on the aircraft operators’ side. In the same context the implementation of an RNP to ILS approach, including RF legs in the intermediate segment, is planned. Furthermore, an analysis of the effects on aircraft fuel consumption will be conducted for the procedures within the scope of this project in order to assess targeted benefits. Airspace user feedback and environmental benefits have proved to be so positive that RF Legs have become a major element in the overall PBN strategy of Austro Control. Moreover, equipage rates for RF capability are very advanced which makes their application in the departure domain a very useful, additional implementation element.

 

The project also includes a MTT (Multi Track Turns) study which will analyse the feasibility to provide RF-leg substitutes by a sequence of TF (track-to-fix) legs (a potential method has already been described by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the form of the 60-60-40-10 TF leg sequence to emulate RF). This aims at making RF-based procedures more accessible to aircraft that are not RF capable. This would greatly increase the community of airspace users to which these modern, efficient and environmentally-friendly procedures could be made available. Furthermore, the project foresees the implementation of one SBAS LPV200 approach as well as the redesign & publication of the current LNAV/VNAV Approach (both for Runway 29) according to the new ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) DOC 8168 (Amendment 6) criteria which provides the opportunity of lower approach minima. There is the need to coordinate/synchronise efforts (operational procedure and aircraft capabilities) between ANSPs (Air Navigation Service Providers) and Airspace users to ensure the return of investment and/or the start of operational benefits, which is why stakeholders' workshops with airlines and other airspace users are foreseen. The project is building on the 2014-CEF call 007AF1 Performance Based Navigation (PBN) implementation in Vienna.

System Procurement for Deployment of PCP Air Traffic Control System iCAS at DFS and LVNL Ongoing

Project number:  2016_026_AF3

Country: Germany

Leader:  DFS

Description:

iCAS (iTEC Centre Automation System) is a state-of-the-art harmonised and interoperable air traffic control system which will be rolled out at all DFS and LVNL control centres. It is a significant functional evolution to the current DFS ATS (Air Traffic Services) systems P1/ATCAS (Air Traffic Control Automation System) and P1/VAFORIT (Variance Flight Data Processing System Automation Requirements Implementation) and the LVNL ATS system AAA (Amsterdam Advance ATC). iCAS features a 4D-trajectory and is designed to provide ATC (Air Traffic Control) services within the entire airspace of Germany and the Netherlands, including all lower and upper control centre sectors, except in airspace controlled by EUROCONTROL MUAC (Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre).

 iCAS will be used as a fully integrated civil / military ATS system, thus enabling a more "Advanced and Flexible Use of the Airspace" (A-FUA) for both civil and military purposes. In addition, iCAS will be used to control and safely guide more than three million flights carrying over 450 million passengers flying through European core airspace per year. Therewith, the benefits of the implementation of this project being significant with regards to the European public, as well to the European economic growth generated and facilitated via air transport.

iCAS procurement and deployment is currently planned in an iterative two-step approach called iCAS I and iCAS II and a latter third Phase called iCAS III:

.iCAS-I: Deployment of iCAS at Karlsruhe Control Centre. The deployment of the first phase iCAS I is undertaken by two DFS/LVNL projects:

--2016_026_AF3 System Procurement for Deployment of PCP Air Traffic Control System iCAS at DFS and LVNL

--2015_190_AF3 Deployment of Air Traffic Control System iCAS Implementation of ATM PCP Functionalities at LVNL an DFS (funded under 2015-EU-TM-0196-M)

.iCAS-II adds all necessary functions to the iCAS-I system to also support ATC services in lower En-Route and Terminal Airspace (TMA) and to enable the transition between FRA (Free Route Airspace) and low En-Route and TMA (Terminal Control Area) operations. iCAS will achieve a full integration of upper En-Route and lower En-Route Air Traffic Control Centres including their associated TMAs and Extended Arrival Management systems, thereby enabling a significant increase of overall network performance also by including approach and departure to major airports in core Europe.

 

.iCAS-II will be fully integrated with Extended Arrival Management systems (AMAN) to enable the provision of arrival sequence time information and to manage AMAN constraints for highly congested airports. This support to the management of arrival constraints is achieved through data exchange, data processing and information display at the relevant controller working positions in the ATS control centres. First iCAS-II deployment is planned for Munich Control Centre by end of 2020 / beginning of 2021 and iCAS-II will then be rolled out subsequently to all remaining iCAS centres in Amsterdam by the end of 2021, in Bremen by end of 2021 / beginning of 2022 and Langen by end of 2022 / beginning of 2023. Activities to be executed after 2020 are not part within this Implementation Project (i.e. Action)

.iCAS-III (future version) will add additional functionalities of the PCP e.g. to make use of flight information exchange services like sharing of Flight Object information (AF5) and 4D trajectories(AF6) and Conflict Resolution Assistant (CORA). Thus, iCAS-I and iCAS-II are central prerequisites and critical enablers to deploy additional performance improvements of the PCP IR. iCAS-III activities are not part of this Action.

The key iCAS components Flight Data Processor, Controller Working Position and Middleware will be deployed into all ACCs of the iTEC ANSPs DFS, ENAIRE, LVNL and NATS making a total of 11 control centres with their associated airspace deploying und utilising a European, harmonised and interoperable ATS system.

Time Based Separation Completed

Project number: #097AF2

Country: United Kingdom

Leader: London Heathrow Airport

Description: 

 Deployment of Time-based separation (TBS) at Heathrow Airport in order to address the  biggest single cause of delay to Heathrow arrivals - strong headwinds on final approach.

 Time Based Separation is expected to reduce this delay by as much as 50% of all strong wind regulations applied at Heathrow (equating to c.20% reduction in overall Heathrow ATFM delay) with a projected benefit to the airlines in the range £6m to £7.5m per annum. Any reduction in spacing during strong wind conditions will not result in aircraft being closer than minimum radar separation of 2.5nm.

VCS-IP - Upgrade of Voice Communication Systems to support ATM VoIP communications Planned

Project number:  2016_043_AF3

Country: Croatia

Leader:  Croatia Control

Description:

The Implementation Project aim to:

- Upgrade of all CCL´s main and backup Voice Communiction Systems (VCS) to comply with EUROCAE ATM Voice over IP (VoIP) standards as a prerequsite for implementation of PCP AF3 Flexible Airspace Management (ASM) and Free Route

- Carry out a Safety Assessment of the upgraded CCL´s main and backup Voice Communiction Systems (VCSS).

 

In the course of this Implementation Project, all main, backup and simulator VCS will be upgraded to allow Internet Protocol (IP) based connectivity in Ground/Ground (G/G) and Air/Ground (A/G) voice communication domain. Voice Communication Systems procured in period 2012-14. can be upgraded to VoIP by changing system software release followed by replacement of monitoring and control subsystem and integration of additional VoIP hardware. Following systems will be upgraded as described:

 

- Main VCS Zagreb Area Control Cenre (ACC),

- Main and backup VCS for Split terminal area,

- Main and backup VCS Pula terminal area,

- Main and backup VCS Dubrovnik terminal area,

- Main and backup VCS Zadar terminal area,

- main VCS Zagreb TWR,

- simulator VCS.

 

Back Voice Communication System (BVCS) Zagreb ACC is a system of an older generation and can only be extended by additional media gateway (MGW) to mediate between BVCS legacy type of interfaces and IP network. During integration and site acceptance testing, existing and new system functions shall be validated. Upgraded systems will provide telephone connectivity with VoIP compliant VCSs and an easy integration of all IP-based VHF/UHF radios needed for the management of dynamic airspace configuration. The implementation of VoIP will enable the introduction of dynamic sector delegation between Air Traffic Control centers thus increasing the number of sector configurations provided from every ATC centre depending on the traffic demand. More direct routes available due to flexible use of airspace will directly reduce fuel burn and emission of carbon. Decrease of maintenance cost is also expected after implementation of the whole IP concept.

XMAN - Cross-center arrival management - Part 2 (CEF2016) Ongoing

Project number:  2016_023_AF1

Country: Germany

Leader:  DFS

Description:

This Implementation Project continues the activities for the deployment of extended arrival management that were started with the XMAN (Cross-center Arrival Management) multi-stakeholder project (2015-EU-TM-0196-M-2015_196_AF1). The XMAN project ensures the harmonised and coordinated implementation of Extended Arrival Management in accordance with PCP (Pilot Common Project) IR EU No. 716/2014 and the Deployment Programme 2016 of the SESAR Deployment Manager in the European Core Area.

The overall aim of this Implementation Project is the extension of the planning horizon of Arrival Management systems (AMAN) from the local TMAs into the airspace of En-Route Control Centres up to about 200 NM (Nautical Miles) around the PCP-airports – or even beyond – depending on the operational environment and the needs of the stakeholders.

It foresees the upgrade of ATC systems at the respective ATS (Air Traffic Services) units (Approach Control and Area Control Centers) to support the processing, exchange and display of arrival management information such as Time to Lose and/or Speed Advice. The exchange of information will be established with existing technology via OLDI (On-Line Data Interchange) with an Arrival Management Message (AMA) or SWIM (System Wide Information Management) using XML format. The XMAN Portal is a common service by which the XMAN actors can interact, to share data, to achieve common awareness and consistent and coherent application of XMAN actions.

The remaining implementations of XMAN connections to affected Control Centres within the extended planning horizons should be developed before 2020. It should be noted that only those upstream Control Centres will be subject to Extended Arrival Management where it is deemed operationally beneficial e.g. due to their share of the arrival stream or the amount of airspace available for effective handling of arriving flights.

The following airports and controil centres are involved in this project:

. Airports: Minuch (MUC), Dusseldorf (DUS), Berlin (BER), Nice (NCE) and Barcelona (BCN).

. Control Centres: Padua, Vienna, Karlsruhe, Maastrich, Bremen, Munich, Milan, Marseille and Brodeaux.
