DIGITAL NOTAM TRANSITION Moving Forward!
NOTAM MODERNIZATION AIM Segment 1 Program Policy Alignment with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Working on new NOTAM manual to coincide with International policies and goals. Modernization of Automation for NOTAM Entry and Distribution. Streamline domestic NOTAM entry by working directly with airport operators.
Modernization Tracks Improve the quality of NOTAMs Provide meaningful information Enhance NOTAM interpretation Graphical depiction necessary Improve reliability and accessibility Digital data exchange will enhance filtering and sorting Conform to ICAO standards Provide a single source for all NOTAMs One collection and distribution point for all information Consolidate inefficient legacy systems for improved customer service Balance diverse customer needs Airlines, ATC, General Aviation, International, Military
Current NOTAM Status Digital NOTAM Entry live test now underway Working on future Direct Entry of NOTAMs by airports, bypassing flight service Development underway for ICAO formatted NOTAMs Airports being utilized are: FAI, DEN, ACY, FWA, ORF, RIC, DCA, MDW, MEM, IAD, BWI, ORD Direct entry by the originator will improve speed and accuracy of NOTAM publication Digital NOTAM Entry can output the NOTAM in U.S. domestic NOTAM format, ICAO format, and plain language format
NOTAM Keywords (Current) Effective November 2010 All (D) NOTAM shall be prefaced with a keyword: ADAerodrome AIRSPACEAirspace APRONApron COMCommunications NAVNAVAID (O)Other Aeronautical Information OBSTObstructions RAMPRamp (Goes away Nov 2010) RWYRunway SVCServices TWYTaxiway (U)Unverified Movement Area
NOTAM Keywords (New) Effective November 2010 ODPObstacle Departure Procedure SIDStandard Instrument Departure STARStandard Terminal Arrival CHARTChart Correction DATADataset change IAPInstrument Approach Procedure VFPVisual Flight Procedure ROUTERoute change with ATS routes SPECIALSpecial Instrument flight procedure OOther Aeronautical Information NOTE: These new additions are not put in by airport personnel except for possibly (O).
Upcoming Changes to NOTAM Input (November 2010) All these changes reflect a transition toward compliance with Annex 15 of the International Civil Aviation Organization and FAAs new policies and procedures to meet these goals. Start and End Times must be used in a NOTAM. A 10-digit-date-time group must be used to indicate the effective time and expiration time of the NOTAM. Effective time and expiration time must be separated by hyphen (-). 10 digits = year, month, day, hour and minute. If duration is uncertain, approximate expiration time must be indicated by using date-time group followed by EST. Once used this NOTAM must be cancelled or replaced before the expiration time specified in the NOTAM. WIE, WEF AND UFN is not authorized! Use of TIL is not authorized!
Examples of NOTAM Changes Time: !ABC ABC RWY 9/27 CLSD Notice what is missing….WEF before the start time. TIME: !ABC ABC AD CLSD EST Notice the EST now in use, only underlined for demo purpose. TIME: Start times will either be put in by the operator or a box can be clicked that puts the start time in upon activation. These are all drop down menus on a template supplied to the airport from the FAA or a third party vendor. Web based applications. Keyword: RAMP will no longer be used, to be included under the keyword APRON. !DSM DSM APRON SOUTH CARGO RAMP CLSD
Digital Goal Sort - Order the data Filter - Geographic, temporal, or logical extract Transpose – Convert data to graphic Alert - Evaluate the data and take action Fuse – Ability to merge multiple datasets
Quality Assurance Direct entry would bypass current procedure of going through flight service Eliminates third party errors Improves the quality of the NOTAM for safety purposes Shortens the time it takes to put out a NOTAM for all stakeholders Originating at the source improves data integrity, traceability and is encoded digitally Validation is to strict business rules Eliminates incorrect runway numbering and other human typo errors (NASR database tie-in)

Web Access Lets go directly to the FAAs Web site now in use for testing. Notams.aim.faa.gov The public web site is useful for airport operator Can check on status of NOTAMs See if a NOTAM has been accepted by the system (numbered) Verify that it has not been changed Great Quality Assurance for the airport operator

Summary of Changes Reclassified civil Local NOTAMs –All current local NOTAMs reclassified as D NOTAMs –January 28, 2008 Created keywords for all D NOTAMs for improved sorting and parsing Created central repository for all NOTAMs Standardized NOTAM policy with ICAO Community Preparation for full ICAO format Elimination of certain time contractions Digital database
Changes are coming… Direct Entry of NOTAMs By-passing flight service Near real time availability of information ICAO Formatted NOTAMS One stop shopping for Aeronautical Information More keywords Digital Database Graphical Products Seamless transition User Friendly
Conclusions The Airport Operator is the key player in the issuance of NOTAMs Knows the subject matter/information Responsible for this data to get out in a safe, timely manner and as close to real time as possible This information needs to be concise, yet understandable Data needs to be accurate according to the airfield master database Runway numbers, taxiway labeling, other identifying features If this first link, in the chain of events that leads to a NOTAM being issued, is flawed then… Safety is compromised A potential accident can be lurking
Conclusions Safety Improvements for NOTAMs… Improved NOTAM training on site with new employees Constant review of FAA NOTAM Orders, including FAA Airport Advisory Circulars Better communication at all levels when a NOTAM is being issued Monitoring of what aeronautical information/NOTAMs are being issued to the public Checking web sites Pilotweb FAA Beta test site for FNS Third party sites E-NOTAM system Phone calls These can be done now, but in the near future……
