DIESER TEXT DIENT DER NAVIGATION ADQ Implementation Workshop Austro Control – Status and Issues ATM/AIM-SDM Robert Wehofer, Manager Static Data Management
2 ADQ Implementation Status at Austro Control –System adaptation –Formal arrangement AIXM 5.1 – a proper origination format? Originators vs. ADQ –Non ADQ addressed originators –Special case: Cloud breaking procedures –Special case: NOTAM Content
3 ACG Project Data quality for static data –started in 2009 –More digitalisation and automation Digital origination formats for external originators Designer tools for Austro Control originators Modern database management system Cartography AIP production –Workflow management system for documentation (PLX) ADQ implementation Status at Austro Control System adaptation
4 ADQ Compliance Checklist –Generic approach rather than distinct SLAs –Standard form with concrete ADQ requirements for all originators –All relevant requirements must be checkmarked Formal arrangement ADQ implementation Status at Austro Control
5 Many States target AIXM 5.1 as origination format Reasons: –Easy to comply with ADQ Article 4 and 5(1) –Data set specification from Eurocontrol (AIXM 5.1) But ?!? –How is the acceptance coming from originators? –Do originators understand the AIXM 5.1 specification? –Has anyone of you already seen a full AIP in complete AIXM 5.1 format? (incl. GEN part) –How well do software providers support AIXM 5.1 to cover the full AIP? (incl. GEN part) AIXM 5.1 A proper origination format?
6 AIXM 5.1 data set specification –is of no use for originator (too technical) –should be relevant for originators as well (Article 4) –Several GEN chapters are described by a single entity RulesProcedures –What would be the reaction of the originator? RulesProcedures. Nice! But which GEN chapters should I supply? AIXM 5.1 A proper origination format?
7 Austro Control approach: AIXM 5.1 only used for exchange between ANSPs Specific origination formats that fit to originators For ICAO relevant geographic data –Simplified XML format based on AIXM 5.1 (version independent) –Excel format (obstacle owners) For non geographic data –Unstructured data formats (Word, PDF) –Still comply with Article 5(1) and Article 6 For each originator: –Data product specification with reduced feature catalog AIXM 5.1 Austro Control approach
8 Discrepancy in ADQ –Not all IAIP originators are addressed –But: ADQ applies to whole IAIP (exkl. AIC) Unclear situation for AISP –How to ensure ADQ compliance for whole AIP? Originators vs. ADQ Non ADQ addressed originators
9 Two possible approaches: 1)Article 6(5): AISP shall define specific requirements to receive data in sufficient quality What is sufficient quality? If too high: Originators dont care If too low: AISP is liable if something happens 2)Article 7(2): AISP annotates not ADQ-compliant data Paragraph will not be seen only as temporary solution Austro Control approach: –1) High quality requested => 2) Permanent annotation Originators vs. ADQ Non ADQ addressed originators
10 Two VFR aerodromes in Austria with cloud breaking procedures: –1000 feet above ground and higher: IFR procedure –Lower than1000 feet: VFR procedure In theory: VFR aerodromes with cloud breaking procedures are fully addressed by ADQ –VFR aerodromes with cloud breaking procedures have to supply fully ADQ compatible data But: –Quality of aerodrome data does not affect IFR procedure in any way –ADQ in this case useless, but significantly high costs for ADs Originators vs. ADQ Special case: Cloud breaking procedures Art. 2(2b) – operators of those aerodromes, for which IFR procedures have been published
11 Conclusion by the European Commission But: –ADQ applies to all NOTAM –Auditors would inspect all NOTAM –Conclusion should be incorporated in the ADQ!!! –Not clear: When does ADQ inhibit a timely distribution of aeronautical information? How to measure? Who is responsible for the decision? How to deal with temporary obstacles? (e.g. crane for 2 days) Originators vs. ADQ Special case: NOTAM NOTAM shall comply with ADQ, if ADQ does not inhibit the distribution of aeronautical information necessary to ensure the safety of flight.
