Building the Bridge Between Airports and Air Traffic Management


Published on

The term CDM is thrown around the industry in the same way that the IT industry uses “Cloud”, “Big Data” & “Mobile”. CDM as a concept can be a true value add…not only for ATC, but for airports, airlines and the wider range of aviation stakeholders. In many cases community, rather than collaboration, is key to the accuracy and effectiveness of any efficiency effort. The role of the airport is often overlooked in the efficiency of this whole process, despite operators being responsible for the handling and processing of the two key components: passengers and aircraft. In this session we will examine the role of the airport and, specifically, their operating systems and platforms to demonstrate the benefits of a fully integrated end-to-end solution encompassing airport and air traffic systems.

  • There are many flavours of CDMI’ve often likened the term CDM in airports to “Cloud” and “Big Data” in the IT industryIdeas and concepts, often misunderstood and meaning many things to different peopleIn our world, CDM isn’t simply A-CDM or FAA NextGenIs it standards?Procedures?No, its about a mindset in airport operations in sharing a common view of the operation
  • Where does CDM lie in the overall concept of airport ops?There are many siloed systems, each serving part of the picture.In many cases, CDM is often being seen as a separate “stand alone” systemThis only serves to increase the complexity of data sharing and integration
  • Diagram form page 3.11 – Shaun to tart up, reformat.Much of the CDM process is around the aircraft on the ground.All of this data is typically part of any operational AODB solution managing the aircraft turnaroundCommon data relatedto the aircraftn Aircraft registrationn Aircraft flight statusn Aircraft typen Aircraft parking standn Boarding gaten Turn-round timen Handling agentn TOBTData extracted from arrivingflight informationn Aircraft identificationn ADEPn Inbound flight typen Take off time from outstationn EETn Landing timen Taxi-in timen In-block timeData extracted from departingflight informationn Aircraft identificationn ADESn SIDn Outbound flight typen De-icingn Off-block timen Taxi-out timen Take off timeAircraft related

  • In this case, the obvious hub of data management becomes the AODBCDM is not a separate platform for data sharing, but should be integral in the data sharing and integration inherent within a modern AODB
  • The main areas of co-ordination are around TOBT from the airline/ground handlers and the TSAT from ATC.This allows the airport to keep ATC updated on the Departure Planning aspects.However the exchange of TOBT may not always be sufficient?Is there sufficient visibility into those factors that can affect the TOBT. In particular, there are many “sub-milestones” in the ground handling process.These can also be matched to an equal number of sub-processes within the terminal which need to be met.It is interesting that in the first page of the A-CDM implementation guide – there is this quote.However – the terminal or many of the sub processes are not sufficiently highlighted within the rest of the CDM implementation Guide.In particular – I was talking to a pilot friend about how “realistic” they can be when slipping on off blocks time.In many cases – people can be overoptomistic?
  • Example from a recent airport I’ve been working.Very interested in monitoring the various sub-milestones of the turn around processVery important for Hub operationsDetailed tracking right down to the individual aircraft off-loading timesBecomes important as aircraft continue to grow in size
