INF10.17 — Cooperative Network Information Exchange – Counts service (ATFCM Congestion Points)

The Cooperative Network Information will be exchanged between the systems of the operational stakeholders and the Network Manager by means of cooperative network information SWIM services, using the Yellow SWIM TI Profile, for Air Traffic Flow and Capacity Management (ATFCM) purposes.

Operational stakeholders use the NM B2B Services, which support the exchange of the following cooperative network information:

• ATFCM congestion points
This information exchange is currently supported by the Counts Service, which provides data supporting the assessment of the ATFCM congestions and hotspot detection.

System requirements:

The Network Manager shall support all operational stakeholders in exchanging data electronically for cooperative network management activities, by providing the necessary SWIM services.

The access to NOP via the NM HMIs is covered by Objectives FCM11.1 and FCM11.2. This objective covers only the information exchanges between the stakeholders’ local systems and the NM system. The Network Manager system and operational stakeholder systems shall be upgraded to support the exchange of information in compliance with the EUROCONTROL SWIM Specifications, either through the Public Internet and/or NewPENS. The choice of communication service depends on a business criticality assessment from where minimum performance requirements are identified.

NOTE: For a full description of the services as well as of the associated system requirements, see the Family 5, in the SESAR Deployment Programme edition 2022, Approved by the European Commission.

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.
