1 External Consumer Access to FAA Data Sets via SWIM FAA Communications,Information & Network ProgramsGroup (CINP)Date: April 2015
2 Topics SWIM Background Data Product Availability Becoming a SWIM ConsumerFAA Documents for SWIM Consumers
3 SWIM Background and Benefits Replaces unique interfaces with modern standards-based data exchangeProvides SWIM Consumers access to FAA data without directly connecting to individual systemsFacilitates leveraging a single interface to receive multiple data productsMore information provided at link below:
4 Data Product Availability (Existing) The following SWIM products are currently available for consumption by external entities. Please visit the Access Agreement Portal at data.faa.gov to register and request access.ProducerDescriptionNSRR Business Service NameITWSIntegrated Terminal Weather System (ITWS) provides a variety of weather information in graphic and textual forms, such as windshear and microburst predictions, storm cell and lightning information, and terminal area winds aloftSWIM ITWS SubscriptionTFMSTraffic Flow Management (TFMS) will provide Aircraft Situation Display (ASDI) data, which will include aircraft scheduling, routing, and positional informationTFMData: Flight DataTFMData: Flow DataSTDDSSWIM Terminal Data Distribution System (STDDS) provides surface movement data (ASDE-X), Runway Visual Range (RVR), and a variety of departure event dataSurface Movement Event (SMES)Airport Data (APDS)
5 Data Product Availability (Near Future) The following SWIM products are scheduled to be available for consumption by external entities and listed on the Access Agreement Portal by the end of 2015.ProducerDescriptionNSRR Business Service NameSFDPSSWIM Flight Data Publication Service (SFDPS) will provide a variety of En Route flight data, such as flight plans, beacon codes, and handoff status. SFDPS will also disseminate data regarding airspaces, such as Sector configuration data, route status, Special Activity Airspace (SAA) status, and altimeter settings.En Route Flight Data PublicationEn Route Airspace Data PublicationEn Route Operational Data PublicationEn Route General Message PublicationAIM FNSProvides Notice to Airmen (NOTAMs)FNS NOTAM Distribution
6 Data Product Availability (Distant Future) The following SWIM products are scheduled to be available for consumption by external entities and listed on the Access Agreement Portal in 2016 or beyond.ProducerDescriptionNSRR Business Service NameAIM-MSegment2AIMM Segment 2 (S2) will modernize the ingestion, integration, management, and distribution of aeronautical information (AI) by establishing the Aeronautical Common Services (ACS) and a one-stop-shop (OSS) customer portal. ACS and OSS will streamline dissemination and updates to Airport reference and configuration data, SAA/ SUA, FNS, and other types of AI information. TBDAIM SAAProvides Airport reference and configuration data, including: definitions and schedule information for Special Activity Airspace (SAA), Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR), procedure (RNAV/RNP) data, and obstacles.Get Static SAAPut Static SAASAA Operational ScheduleSAA Schedule NotificationCSS-WxCSS-Wx will modernize, centralize and streamline distribution of weather within the NAS. CSS-Wx will replace with NEMS-based SOA Servicesexisting data feeds from ITWS, CIWS, EWD, WMSCR, and WARP.TBD
7 Data Product Availability (Distant Future) The following SWIM products are scheduled to be available for consumption by external entities and listed on the Access Agreement Portal in 2016 or beyond.ProducerDescriptionNSRR Business Service NameNCRThe NAS Common Reference (NCR) Service will integrate, aggregate, correlate, and filter a variety of NAS data to form spatial and temporal relationships.TBDSTDDSDisseminate Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System (STARS) data via the NEMSTerminal Automation Information Service (TAIS)TBFMTime Based Flow Management (TBFM) will provide a variety of aircraft metering information, airport configuration and adaptation data.TBFM Metering PublicationTFDMTerminal Flight Data Manager (TFDM) will provide a variety of Airport information, Surface and flight data, and flow informationWMSCRThe Weather Message Switching Center Replacement System (WMSCR) collects, processes, stores, and disseminates textual aviation weather products such as PIREPs and Altimeter data.Publish PIREPPublish Altimeter SettingSubmit PIREPSubmit Altimeter SettingAcknowledge Weather ReportWMSCR Report Retrieval Service
8 Key Actions RequiredNote: Existing NEMS users may skip to the FNTB stage.
9 External Consumer On-Ramping Process Visit the Access Agreement Portal at data.faa.gov to register and request access to available SWIM products.
10 Access Agreement NAS Data Release Group Required Actions Purpose: The NAS Data Release Group evaluates all applicable NAS Data Release requests for the FAA to determine if they are eligible for approval by the NAS Data Management Director. The FAA may only release NAS data to external organizations identified in an approved Access AgreementRequired ActionsCreate an account at data.faa.gov and sign Access AgreementYou will receive an with your signed copy of the Access AgreementKeep this Access Agreement copy for your records
11 NAS Service Registry/Repository NAS Service Registry/Repository (NSRR)Purpose: The NAS Registry and Repository (NSRR) contains the documentation necessary to develop Consumer interfaces to include: Web Service Description Documents (WSDD), JMS description Documents (JMSDD), WSDLs, XML schemas, etc.SWIM Governance Policies can be found at:Required ActionsReview NSRR for data products and supporting product documentationAllow 7-10 days for account creationServiceConsumerProviderNSRRExchangeMessagesPublish and Register ServicesDiscover and Consume Services
12 Client Development Review the NEMS User Guide Document Understand Basic and Enhanced capabilities of NEMSUnderstand the interaction between various capabilitiesI.e. Any consumer can order mediation capability but dynamic subscription must be enabled by producer before the consumer can order itRequired ActionsIdentify critical staff in your organization to facilitate interface developmentCollaborate with your designated Project Lead to complete on-ramping form based on consumer requirementsDevelop client to consume serviceSee SWIM Jump start kit
13 Prepare to Establish Connectivity Review the “FTI NBPS User Guide Volume 2” DocumentUnderstand NAS Enterprise Security Gateway (NESG) requirementsUnderstand Security requirementsUnderstand the various connection options and the impact of design on availabilityI.e. Internet VPN or dedicated connection(s)Review the VPN Technical Requirements DocumentComplete the Consumer On-Ramping FormIdentify critical staff in your organization to facilitate connectivityNetwork administratorSecurity administrator
14 FAA Research & Development Domain External Consumers are required to connect to the FAA’s R&D DomainIdentify how your organization will connect to R&DVPN over dedicated connection or InternetProvide the following information to your appointed FAA project leadTechnical Points of Contact (POC)IP AddressesExternal IP Address of VPN ConcentratorIP Addresses of systems that will be accessing the FAAConnect to R&D to complete client developmentWork with FAA test personnel to verify that client is functioning properlyFAA External Consumer project lead to provide required information for connectivity
15 FAA FTI National Test Bed (FNTB) External Consumers are required to connect to the FTI National Test BedEstablish connectivity to the FNTB DomainPerform FNTB consumer qualification testing with the FNTB NEMS environmentFNTB consumer qualification testing is required prior to deploying in the operational NAS environmentFNTB qualification ensures that consumer has connectivity and is able to receive messages via NEMSDetermine if your desired operational connectivity approach requires additional testing in the FNTB
17 On-Going Support Pre-Operational Deployment Your assigned Project Lead will be your single point of contact for all coordination, status checks, and will provide additional contact information for subject matter experts as required.After transition to Operational EnvironmentThe Network Enterprise Management Center (NEMC) will serve as the SWIM helpdesk for Consumers that have been cut-over to Production.NEMC Contact Information:855-FAA-NEMC ( )Use option 1, followed by option 3 for Enterprise Services.NEMS Support Hours:24/7/365Written this way since we still do not have commitment from NEMC regarding a timeframe for them to take over SPOC for swim external consumers.
18 Pre-Operational Deployment Key Contacts Your organization will be provided both a primary and backup POC upon entry into the external consumer on-ramping processMailbox:Alex PrikhodkoBrandon WangDavid WickesWendy SwartzRob JohnsonMichelle Sreedharan
