To achieve a common trajectory for ATM planning purposes, the Initial Trajectory Information Sharing requires the improvements in three main areas: quality and completeness of input information, the trajectory calculation method and sharing of the results. The trajectory information will allow a common view on planned trajectories to the various Stakeholders to be used to fulfill their different responsibilities.
The Extended Flight Plan (e-FPL) represents one of the system requirements supporting the Initial Trajectory Information. This objective addresses the message exchange between NM systems, ANSPs ATM system and AU/FOC /WOC flight plan fling systems in respect of collaborative flight planning, improving flight plan distribution and enhanced tactical flow management, using the e-FPL.
The e-FPL will include the planned 4D trajectory of the flight as well as flight performance data in addition to ICAO 2012 FPL data. The first phase that will be implemented should address only the exchange of e-FPL information between AUs and NM. The transmission of e-FPL data to ANSP (flight plan distribution) will be implemented when transition to FF-ICE provisions is achieved.
e-FPL will be processed by AU flight planning systems and sent to IFPS. Initially the Extended Flight Plan exchange will be implemented using the flight data model developed by the NM for B2B and that is currently used for operations. Subsequently, as the FIXM version corresponding to FF-ICE/1 becomes available, the e-FPL will be migrated to FIXM.
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 MIL Authorities.
