AOM-0206-A — Flexible and modular ARES in accordance with the VPA design principle

The new modular design principle for ARES, the Variable Profile Area (VPA) enabling flexible airspace sub divisions, new or revised ARES allocations in close proximity (<10 min flight time) from (military) aerodrome of departure shall be introduced on an harmonised European level. Tailored to the individual mission and ensuring optimum military mission effectiveness, the VPA design principle will allow higher flexibility and increased airspace volume to surrounding traffic improving the DCB process. ARES designed according to VPA can also be activated as an ad-hoc combination of modules. ARES activation as ad hoc configurations within predefined structures at short notice is offered to respond to short-term airspace users' requirements. Changes in the airspace status are not uplinked to the pilot yet but are shared with all other concerned airspace users by the system, i.e. Network Manager (ASM and ATFCM functions), ANSPs, civil and military Airspace Users (FOC/WOC).

Rationale
The objective is to better respond to military airspace requirements, ATM and/or meteorological constraints while giving more freedom to GAT flights to select the preferred route trajectories and to achieve more flexibility from both civil and military partners.
