AOM19.1 — ASM Support Tools to Support Advanced FUA (AFUA)

Deploy Airspace Management (ASM) support systems (LARA or locally developed) and their interoperability with NM systems to manage airspace reservations (ARES) resulting from civil-military co-ordination, more flexibly according to airspace users' needs.
The automated ASM support system shall:
- enable the improvement of airspace management processes, including timing dimension by providing mutual visibility on civil and military requirements;
- support a flexible airspace planning taking into account ATS units' airspace management functions and airspace users' requirements, allowing also cross-border and segregated operations with optimized impact;
- support dynamic airspace management;
- address strategic, pre-tactical planning and tactical operations;
- be compatible for the sharing of real-time airspace status requirements and possibly provide data for impact assessment of airspace configurations;
- be interoperable with NM systems using AIXM 5.1 (Aeronautical Information Exchange Model);
- include a verification process for automated data exchange.

This objective is an enabler for its successors AOM19.2, AOM19.3 and AOM19.4 and, in turn, for ATM sub-functionality 3.1 (Airspace Management and Advanced Flexible Use of Airspace) of the PCP Regulation.

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

Improved through better co-ordination of civil and military airspace needs at the European Network level and through a shared real-time airspace status display and enhanced, common situational awareness of all players.
Increased through better awareness and 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.
