The multi-sector planner (MSP) defines a new organisation of controller team(s) and new operating procedures to enable the planning controller to provide support to several tactical controllers operating in different adjacent en-route sectors.
This Implementation Objective proposes a structure whereby, in en-route sectors, a single planner controller (P) is planning and organising the traffic flows for two tactical controllers (T), each of whom is controlling a different sector (1P-2T configuration). There is no need for exit/entry coordination with the airspace volume of multi-sector planner however, the coordination capability with adjacent planner/multi-planner should remain.
In order to guarantee that the workload of the multi-sector planner remains comfortable, even when the executive controllers face traffic levels which are not especially low, some enhancements to the planning tools are needed, improving the efficiency of the planning and decision-making processes.
This concept is intended for operation with suitably configured flight data processing components, flexible allocation of ATC roles and volumes and multi-sector planning.
NOTE 1: A further phase of concept development will extend the concept for MSP during SESAR 2020 to (1P-nT) (SESAR Solution PJ10.1.a) and a further evolution of the MSP concept will develop a novel way of working without the necessity for boundary co-ordinations ('Collaborative Control', SESAR Solution PJ10.1.c]).
NOTE 2: Being a local objective, to be applied at individual States or ATC unit level to achieve their performance targets, the objective does not have a mandatory implementation deadline. As guidance, the FOC of the OI Step on which the SESAR Solution is based is 31/12/2024.
NOTE 3: This objective is linked to SESAR Solution #63.
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.
