The draft EUROCONTROL Specification for Airspace Management (ASM) Support System Requirements supporting the ASM processes at local and FAB level - Part II: ASM to ASM Systems Interface Requirements has been developed in collaboration with stakeholders from civil and military air navigation service providers and airspace users.
The document defines how to exchange the optimised set of ASM data in a standardised manner, at local and FAB levels. It describes the ASMtoASM service and the consolidated technical interface requirements. This includes the development of SWIM-conformant ASM Support System interfaces.
The Specification does not mandate the implementation of ASM interfaces but specifies the requirements that need to be met when implementing such facilities. If interfaces are implemented as the result of regulatory provisions, or based on bilateral agreements between States/AMCs, then the requirements outlined as mandatory in this Specification for those interfaces become mandatory for implementation. This is required in order to meet the purpose of the interfaces and to ensure interoperability between local ASM Support systems.
Part I of the Specification covers the baseline system requirements for ASM Support Systems supporting the ASM processes at local and FAB level. Part I was published on 26 September 2017 - a link to it is available in related links.
As required by the EUROCONTROL Regulatory and Advisory Framework (ERAF), this draft Part II of the Specification is now being submitted for formal stakeholder consultation until 27 September 2019 using the mechanisms of the EUROCONTROL Standards Development Process. The formal consultation enables all states, stakeholders and interested parties to express their formal views on the draft EUROCONTROL Specification.
The consultation package can be found below. The submission of responses and comments to this consultation is supported by the Standards Development Consultation On-line Platform.
