1 International Civil Aviation Organization ICAO Aviation System Block Upgrade Executive Briefing: The Framework for Global Harmonization Issued 10 June 2011

2 2 The Challenge USD 120 billion will be spent on ATS transformation in next 10 years NextGen and SESAR account for large share of spending Parallel investment initiatives also include: – Latin America, Russia, Japan, and elsewhere ATM Modernization is enormously complex task As traffic levels in civil aviation continue to increase, Industry stakeholders seek benefits of new initiatives ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing

3 3 Why is Action Needed? Need to renovate ATM systems to: – Safely accommodate increase of air traffic demand – Respond to diversified needs of operators – Global environmental issue – Other issues inherent with current ANS ATM modernization programmes must harmonize to: – Provide greatest operational & performance benefits – Achieve seamless global air navigation into future ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing

4 4 What are the Impediments? All programmes face risks & require mitigation strategies Most significant risk is related to timing and mix of technical, political, and infrastructure requirements Set of risks exist independent of specific solution chosen: – Non-homogeneous deployment across regions – Lack of synchronization of air & ground deployments – Future investment in existing ATM programmes by key stakeholders not secured – Delays in standards development and approvals – AIM not implemented in global interoperable way – SWIM not implemented in correct form ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing

5 5 ICAO’s Approach ICAO established programmatic, collaborative approach to develop set of ATM solutions Meet global needs for interoperable airspace that: – Takes advantage of current equipage – Establishes transition plan that provides key performance improvements – Enables global interoperability Aviation System Global Block Upgrade ICAO launched Aviation System Global Block Upgrade initiative to facilitate: – Interoperability – Harmonization – Modernization of air transportation world-wide ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing

6 6 What is an ASBU? Aviation System Block Upgrade (ASBU) designates set of improvements that can be implemented globally from defined point in time to enhance performance of ATM System A Block is made up of modules Each module represents a specific, well-bounded improvement A module can be grouping of several elements which can contain: – Communications, navigation, surveillance components in aircraft – Communication system – Ground component of ATC automation or decision support tool for controllers – etc. Elements mutually make module comprehensive & cohesive ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing

7 7 What is an ASBU? (Cont’d) ABSUs are suite or package of capabilities (called modules) where each has essential qualities of: – Clearly defined measurable operational improvement with appropriate metric to determine success – Necessary equipment and/or systems in aircraft and on ground along with operational approval or certification plan – Standards & procedures for airborne & ground systems – Positive business case over clearly defined period of time ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing

8 8 What is an ‘Aviation System Block Upgrade’ ? 8

9 9 It’s been done before - PBN ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing9 Operational Improvement Fewer Runway Excursions Less Noise & Emissions Fuel Savings Lower Pilot workload Lower ATC Workload Performance Monitoring by PIRGs/States Metrics Positive Business Case Minimum investment; using existing airborne technology Rollout (Formulation of business case by States) Necessary Technology Air & Ground Annex 10 (2008) GNSS Manual (2011) Rollout (planning & implementation by PIRGs/States ) Global Demonstrations and/or Trials Oceanic – RNP 4; Pacific Continental – RNAV 5; S. America RNAV 10; Red Carpet Africa Challenging Approaches Lhasa, Queenstown Rollout (planning & implementation by PIRGs/States) Regulatory Approval Plan Air & Ground Ops Approval Handbook (2011) PBN Model Regulations (2011) Rollout (planning& implementation by PIRGs/States) Necessary Procedures Air & Ground Annex 2, 10 & 11 (2008) Annex 14 & 15 (2009) Annex 4 & 6 (2010) Annex 3 (2012) Procedures Ops Vol. 1 & 2 ( ) Procedures ATM ( ) Procedures ABC (2010) PBN Manual ( ) RNP AR Manual (2009) Continuous Descent Operations (2010) Continuous Climb Operations (2012) Quality Assurance Manual (2010) Airspace Design Handbook (2011) Rollout (planning& implementation by PIRGs/States)

10 Advantage of ICAO’s Approach Block Upgrades provide a series of measurable, operational performance improvements Organized into flexible & scalable building blocks Could be introduced as needed Implemented as each individual State and or Region determines feasible – based on individual needs & level of readiness ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing10

11 11 What is the Basis for ASBUs? Foundation of blocks originates from existing, near term implementations and access to benefits that already exist Blocks are based on operational concepts extracted from: Intent is to apply key capabilities and performance improvements across other regional and local environments – with same level of performance and associated benefits worldwide Block upgrades will allow structured approach to meet needs of individual aviation communities worldwide – while considering associated business cases not Block upgrades reflect recognition that all module solutions are not required in all airspaces ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing

12 12 ASBUs & Performance Improvements ASBUs address 4 key Performance Improvement Areas: – Greener Airports – Globally Interoperable Systems and Data – Optimum Capacity and Flexible Flights – Efficient Flight Path ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing

13 Improvement Areas, Blocks & Modules ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing13 Block 0 (2013) Block 2 (2023) Block 1 (2018) Block 3 (2028 & >) Optimum Capacity and Flexible Flights Globally Interoperable Systems and Data Efficient Flight Plan Greener Airports Performance Improvement Areas

14 Roadmaps??? ICAO ASBExecutive Briefing14 A slice based on technology. Block 0 Block 1 Block 2 Block 3 + Communications Navigation Surveillance AIM AVIONICS + Plus whatever else we are doing!!! 14

15 Example of Mapping ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing15 Block 0 (2013) Block 2 (2023) Block 1 (2018) Block 3 (2028 & >) Optimisation of Approach Procedures Including Vertical Guidance (GBAS I) Optimisation of Approach Procedures Including Vertical Guidance (GBAS II/III ) Wake Vortex Separation (Time-based) Greener Airports Performance Improvement Areas Wake Vortex Separation, Refined Advanced Wake Vortex Separation (Time-based) Runway Sequencing AMAN/DMAN Metroplex Linked AMAN/DMAN Integrated AMAN/DMAN/ SMAN etc.

16 16 Timeframe Block 0: available to be deployed globally from 2013 Block 1: available to be deployed globally from 2018 Block 2: available to be deployed globally from 2023 Block 3: available to be deployed globally from 2028/beyond ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing

17 17 Mitigating the Risks Deployment of ASBUs chosen to resolve many identified risks Timing and sizing of Block Upgrades are in response to need for: – Mature standards – Integrated air and ground solutions – Establishment of positive business cases for level of equipage and infrastructure costs Capabilities lacking specific maturity in content or described benefit are purposefully placed in later Block Upgrades ASBUs respond to issue of “non-homogeneous deployment across regions”. – Block components are intended to interoperate seamlessly independent of how they are implemented in neighboring States – To ensure procedures, training, policy, and other “infrastructure” are consistent Ensure safe transition to more capable airspace ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing

18 18 Improvements for Phases of Flight Example: Block 0 ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing

19 19 A Team Effort ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing

20 20 What’s Next? ASBUs initiative formalized at 12th Air Navigation Conference – In November 2012 – As revision to ICAO Global Air Navigation Plan Global Air Navigation Industry Symposium (Sept 2011): – Allow States and industry partners to gain insight – Provide feedback – Ultimately commit to concept Initiative will influence ICAO’s future Standards development work programmes Block Upgrades and associated performance improvements will be realized by implementation actions in regions ICAO ASBU Executive Briefing
