Short term ATFCM measures (STAM), as defined in the STAM Concept of Operations but also in the Pilot Common Project Regulation and in the Deployment Programme is consisting of an approach to smooth sector workloads by reducing traffic peaks through short-term application of minor ground delays, appropriate flight level capping, timing and modalities of ATC re-sectorisation, exiguous re-routings to a limited number of flights and 'what-if' function in order to identify the applicability and gains of potential ATFCM measure. These measures are capable of reducing the traffic complexity for ATC with minimum curtailing for the airspace users. STAM is based on high-quality data for prediction and accurate traffic analysis and will be an important contribution to enhanced demand capacity balancing (DCB) concept.
ANSPs can optimize capacity throughput by adopting and improving the tactical capacity management procedures (with the use of STAM). The tactical capacity management procedures can be supported by a Network Tools (system based STAM with the hot-spot detections in the network view, the "what-if" function and capabilities of promulgation and implementation of STAM measures, including CDM) or by local tools. These tools shall be applicable in the tactical ATFCM timeframe (e.g. up to 2 hours before flights enter a sector).
Tactical capacity management shall implement STAM using cooperative decision-making to manage flows before flights enter a sector.
The deployment shall mainly focus on:
- Enhanced monitoring techniques (including hotspot management and complexity indicators)
- Coordination systems (including B2B with local tools)
- What-if function (local measures, flight based, flow based and multiple measure alternative)
- Network impact assessment
NOTE: the STAM CONOPS mentioned in this document includes both STAM Phase 1 and Phase 2.
NOTE FOR MILITARY AUTHORITIES: It is the responsibility of each military authority to review this Objective IN ITS ENTIRETY and address each of the SLoAs that the military authority considers RELEVANT for itself. This has to be done on top and above of the review of "MIL" SLoAs which identify actions EXCLUSIVE to military authorities.
