European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation



Where do we take Airport CDM from here?

Today s problem

Today’s problem

  • Lack of collaborative strategic planning between Airport partners

  • Limited facilities for real-time data sharing

  • Inflexible responses to real-time events

  • Inability to exploit potential for efficienceand capacity gains offered new capabilities

Even with Airport CDM in place

Airport cdm

Airport CDM

TAM is an extension of Airport CDM

Airport CDM will improve today’s situation,

but there are certain shortcomings:

- CDM is limited to the pre-tactical phase (+2 hours)

- There is no support of analytical tools

- CDM provides limited understanding of system wide impact of decisions

- CDM has limited use of common performance indicators

…but Airport CDM is still a big step forward

Stakeholders need

Stakeholders need….

  • optimised arrival and departure rates for sustained periods

  • improved predictability of all airport processes

  • sufficient flexibility to accommodate real-time events

  • environmentally suitable and acceptable operations

  • understanding of trade-off possibilities

What is tam

What is TAM?

TAM considers the airport holistically as one node of the overall air transport network.

In order to ensure an overall Quality of Service (QoS) of an airport to the customers and to the air transport network, TAM concentrates on the initial strategic and pre-tactical planning phases using the most accurate information available, followed by the monitoring (and when required, reactive planning) of the tactical working process.

and flexibility

Expected benefits

Expected Benefits

Improved predictability

Resources can be used more efficiently, keeping sufficient flexibility to cater for the unforeseen

More transparency

Cooperative negotiation and equity for all stakeholders


With direct involvement of stakeholders in determining performance targets

Problems addressed by tam

Problems addressed by TAM

Poor global flow of information:

A deficit of information exchange between subsystems is caused due to no common information system

Global goal neglect and conflicting interests:

Subjective interests of stakeholders follow a local cost-benefit analysis before information exchange is supplied and restrictions are accepted

Complexity increase:

Problems of complexity increase, focusing on global goals. More system parameters and dependencies have to be considered

Summary status and outlook

Summary, Status and Outlook

  • TAM is the Vision, Airport CDM the solid starting point

  • Performance based airport needed to enable performance based ATM

  • “Total” means airside and landside & adhoc to strategic time horizon

  • Proactive, layered guidance based on C4I principles

  • Tools supporting dynamic, repetitive planning results in joint AOP

  • Human centred automation

  • Different APOC Instantiations possible

  • Integrating existing approaches like A-SMGCS, xMAN, CDM…

  • Initial concept document jointly developed by DLR and EEC

  • Initial Validation Exercises planned for EC FP-6 Episode 3

  • Effort in DLR and EEC to be continued

  • FP7 / SESAR might be platform for large scale validation
