AOM19.2 — ASM Management of Real-Time Airspace Data

Implement enhanced Airspace Management (ASM) by automated exchange services of ASM data during the tactical phase continuously in real time. ASM information (real-time Airspace Reservation (ARES) status) is shared between ASM systems, civil and military ATS units/systems and needs to be communicated to NM in the tactical phase. The data shared with NM is mostly related to the early airspace release pertinent to the possibility that the released airspace could be plannable by IFPS. These data, consisting of pre-notification of activation, notification of activation, de-activation, modification and release of airspace are collected, saved and processed in order to be exchanged between ASM stakeholders and be made available to ATM actors; while some airspace users are not directly involved in ASM process, they will be notified by the Network Manager.

The scope of this objective encompasses:
- Procedural and system upgrades (ASM, ATM, NM and AU systems (Computer Flight Plan Software Providers (CFSP)) for exchange of real time airspace status data;
- Integration and management of ASM real-time data into ANSPs' ATM systems and into AUs' (CFSPs) flight planning systems;
- Full sharing of real-time airspace status updates in order to take early advantage of possible opportunities and/or to achieve real-time awareness of airspace situation;
- Network impact assessment of the changes resulting of the application of the above processes.

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.

Operating Environments

Expected Performance Benefits

Improved through better co-ordination of civil and military airspace needs at the European Network level. Potential gains through more efficient airspace allocation and better knowledge of traffic environment, common situational awareness, and some enhancement through reduction in controller workload.
Increased through better utilization of airspace resources within and across airspace boundaries leading to reduction of flight delays.
Operational efficiency
Increased through the availability of more optimum routes/trajectories allowing lower fuel burn.
Cost efficiency
Emissions reduced through the use of more optimum routes/trajectories.
