AOP17 — Provision/integration of departure planning information to NMOC

The Network integration of departure estimates from medium and small sized airports via the exchange of Departure Planning Information (DPI), specifically ATC-DPI and CNL-DPI messages is needed to enhance the network benefit and improve the flow management process. This functionality aims to improve integration of departure estimates from medium or small-size airports when serving a complex airspace with dense traffic through improved availability of aircraft pre-departure information to the ATM Network, through the provision of accurate pre-departure information to the NM.

The objective also supports further integration of airports into the Network by addressing the reception from the NM of estimated landing times.

This objective should be considered as not applicable for the airports that already deployed A-CDM or planned to deploy A-CDM in near future.

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

There will be an overall minor improvement in the safety of operations through the provision of timely and accurate information that is widely shared amongst all partners in the ATM business.
Improved availability of more accurate departure data will improve the performance of network management, thereby enabling the improvement of capacity through better confidence in NMOC traffic load predictions.
Operational efficiency
The improved data will increase predictability within the NMOC systems for demand on a sector, leading to: • Better decision making concerning when to open or close a sector; • Fewer unnecessary regulations leading to a reduction of ATFM delays; • Fewer overloads as sudden increases in demand will be rare.
