1 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation Document Number Here US Civil - Military Airspace Sharing: Collaboration Tools and Trials April 2001

2 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Outline Background Need for Civil-Military Collaboration Special Use Airspace Collaboration Tools Special Use Airspace Trials Summary

3 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Background 1987 & US General Accounting Office studies criticized the Military (DoD) and FAA for: Inefficient use of existing Special Use Airspace Lack of utilization data DoD commits to develop a DoD-wide airspace scheduling system; FAA commits to develop a system Joint-Government Industry Task Force Report –Recommendations made on Special Use Airspace (SUA) Establish coordination among the Military, FAA, and Users to improve civil use of SUA when not used by the military Conduct operational trials to test concepts for improved civil use; examine benefits, operational issues, and requirements

4 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Background (continued) Develop and implement a real-time SUA notification system between the Military and FAA, and between FAA and Users Form a Technical Working Group to examine SUA issues SUA Technical Working Group met in August –Military, FAA, Airspace Users, Controllers Unions, Contract Personnel –Technical Working Group met at Edwards AFB, California to observe air traffic management at Restricted Area R-2508 Operational trial conducted in R Joint Government-Industry Working Group formed –Military, FAA, Airspace Users, MITRE/CAASD, and Contract Personnel

5 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Background (concluded) Made recommendations on Special Use Airspace (SUA) in the Redesign of the National Airspace System in document (RTCA Paper No /SC ) Examine & promote near-term initiatives for improving civil use of SUA when not in use by the military

6 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Need for Civil-Military Collaboration Increases in civil traffic Richness of the airspace Changes in military requirements –Smaller force, but smarter and longer-range weapons and weapons systems actually increases need for airspace Shorter times but larger areas Combined mission profiles = increasingly complicated training demands and infrastructure –Increased domestic training resulting from reduced foreign presence –Composite force training = more shared use

8 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Special Use Airspace Collaboration Tools The Internet MAMS SAMS Falconview SUA/ISE

9 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April The Internet The Air Forces Special Use Airspace Information System (SUAIS) in Alaska uses the Internet The FAAs Special Use Airspace Management System (SAMS) and the Military Airspace Management System (MAMS) also use the Internet

10 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Web page –General information –Cope Thunder exercise schedules (event, date, time, level of activity) –Airspace/MOA maps Radio –Detailed schedule information –Real-time traffic advisories Telephone –Detailed schedule information SUAIS Internet System: Information & Media

11 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April FAAs Special Use Airspace Management System (SAMS)

12 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April FAAs Special Use Airspace Management System (SAMS)

13 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Military Airspace Management System (MAMS) Provides schedule information on military airspace use for all services. Provides direct input into SAMS, the civil SUA system MAMSSAMS

15 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Special Use Airspace/In-flight Service Enhancement Prototype System (SUA/ISE)

16 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Special Use Airspace/In-flight Service Enhancement Prototype System (SUA/ISE)

17 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Edwards AFB Complex R-2508 & Jet Route-110 (California) Buckeye Military Operations Area (Ohio) CATO ATCAA & Dryheat Departure Procedure (Arizona) Palatka Complex (Florida) Brownwood Military Operations Area (Texas) Special Use Airspace Field Initiatives & Trials

18 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Challenge –Historically available from Hrs –Slow info dissemination Civil-Military Collaboration –Joint FAA, DoD Industry Workgroup Evaluated efficient use Action –Improved info dissemination –Improved automation for issuing clearances Edwards AFB Complex R-2508 & Jet Route-110 (California) J-110

19 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Challenge –Increased airline activity –Addition of new F-16 school Civil-Military Collaboration –FAA and DoD Task Force Accommodate increased traffic Accommodate military training requirements Action –Full-time Military Radar Unit established for real-time control –Departure corridors NW & South –Tunnel through Buckeye for NE departures Buckeye Military Operations Area (Ohio)

20 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Challenge –Delays at Phoenix airport –DoD need for training Civil-Military Collaboration –FAA and 162nd & 150th Fighter Wings Excellent example of win- win collaboration Action –Special high-altitude training area created for DoD –CATO ATCAA modified for FAA Departure Procedure –30% reduction in delays CATO ATCAA & Dryheat Departure Procedure (Arizona)

21 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Palatka Complex (Florida) Challenge –Increased activity along coast –Access Hrs daily Civil-Military Collaboration –FAA and DoD Task Force Dissemination system Increased access Action –Limited access trial Improved info dissemination Saturday & Sunday access to select GA population –Trial expanded-Fri., Sat.,& Sun

22 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Brownwood Military Operations Area (Texas) Challenge –Regional airlines costs $$: SUA circumnavigation Civil-Military Collaboration –FAA and DoD kickoff meeting Info dissemination system Increased access Action –Trial will include Two regional airlines Three automation systems –Local prototype SUA system –FAAs SUA automation system –DoDs SUA automation system 208 NM 197 NM To DFW San Angelo

23 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation April Summary Several actions are ongoing in the US to increase collaboration between military and civil airspace users Many initiatives have started with small steps... the important thing, however, is that they were started! –Some involve simple procedural changes –Some involve simple automated scheduling solutions Changes associated with more efficient use of special use airspace appear to work best when joint civil- military work groups tackle the issues
