The rigid application of ATFM regulations based on standard capacity thresholds as the predominant tactical capacity measure needs to be replaced by a close working relationship between ANSP/FMP, AU and NMF, which would monitor both the real demand, the effective capacity of sectors having taken into account the complexity of expected traffic situation.
In order to close the gap between ATC and ATFCM, local operational procedures need to be developed. The aim is to improve the efficiency of the system using flow management techniques close to the real time operations with direct impact on tactical capacity management, occupancy counts and tactical action on traffic. The target of the short term ATFCM measures (STAM) is to replace en-route CASA regulations for situations where the capacity is nominal.
This objective deals with the initial version of STAM already deployed in some FMPs following some operational experimentations which is labelled STAM phase 1. A more automated version of STAM labelled STAM phase 2 will be released in the next years by SESAR. The deployment of STAM phase 1 is expected to happen only in selected core area FMPs. Once released, STAM Phase 2 will be deployed ECAC wide or at least in the high complexity ACCs.
Airports can be involved in the STAM process but the decision to involve them is a local decision
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.
