ATC19 — Enhanced AMAN-DMAN integration

Integrated Arrival and Departure management aims at increasing predictability and resilience at an airport by improved co-ordination between ACC/APP and TWR controllers. Arrival and Departure flows to the respective runway are integrated by setting up fixed arrival departure sequencing pattern for defined periods. The successive pattern shall be agreed between ATSUs with the support of a tool considering arrival and departure demand for the RWY(s) concerned. Departure flow to the runway is managed by pre-departure sequencing (integrating route planning) while arrival flow to the runway is managed by arrival metering. Procedures for adjusting the Arrival and Departure sequence shall remain unchanged compared to the previous operating method of just using AMAN and DMAN work independently .

The integration of the two systems is achieved as follows:

a) AMAN and DMAN systems shall be coupled and shall provide with an integrated and shared view on the planned arrival and departure flow (and sequence pattern) to the relevant TWR and APP CWPs.

b) Coupled AMAN/DMAN shall operate in a master/slave configuration; the AMAN setting-up gaps (Arrival Free Intervals) to be filled by the DMAN.

This integration shall rely on a stable and optimised pre-departure sequence supported by an enhanced DMAN as described in PCP sub AF 2.1 and 2.2.

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.

Expected Performance Benefits

Operational efficiency
Contribution to Predictability; increase in resilience.
Cost efficiency
The coupling of AMAN with DMAN has been shown to save departure fuel and improve local air quality due to a reduction in the taxi-out time during peak traffic (up to 7% savings in taxi-out fuel )
