Introduction what is nes

Introduction - What is NES?

  • The NOTAM Entry System (NES) is an FAA program designed to simplify and expedite the TFR request process.

  • It was created for authorized users to input TFR requests using a web browser that creates a draft TFR that is sent to the appropriate ARTCC who forwards it to the US NOTAM office for issuance.

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Instructions for the notam entry system nes

Instructions for the NOTAM Entry System (NES)

  • It is accomplished through the acquisition of an internet “Certificate” which may be considered a passport to the secured FAA NES Website.

  • Authorized users are required to down load the “certificate” to their computer and register as users of the NOTAM Entry System.

5. After the word “Firefighting” add the words “Aviation Operations” so it reads “Firefighting Aviation Operations.”

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Notam entry system nes june 2013 update

6. Type in Incident Name and the word “fire.” For example: The Cedar Fire. This clarifies the name of the fire within the NOTAM. If you do not add “the” and “fire”, it can be very confusing because of the way the NOTAM is issued.

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Notam entry system nes june 2013 update

7. Click on ARTCC for Drop down menu.

Select the appropriate ARTCC for the

Next step time range

Next step – Time Range

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013

  • You have two choices:

    • A 24 hour a day TFR.

    • A “time specific” TFR that has a start time in the morning and a closing time in the evening.


Notam entry system nes june 2013 update

10: Click on Time Ranges. This opens a box which allows you to specifies the time range.

11: For 24 hour a day coverage, Ignore Step 1. Click on “Get Time Range” under Step 2.

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Notam entry system nes june 2013 update

12: When you click on “Get Time Range” in Step 2,

This will bring in a standard clause “effective immediately until further notice.”

13: Click on “Save New Time Range” in Step 3. This will populate the box with your time range.

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Notam entry system nes june 2013 update

14: Click on the exit box once your selected time rangeis “saved.”

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Alternate if you want to identify specific hours of operation in your tfr

ALTERNATE If you want to identify specific hours of operation in your TFR

Do NOT use the words “Daylight”, “Civil Twilight”, “Sunrise”, etc in your description as these are not LEGAL terms for the issuance of a regulatory FDC NOTAM. You must use actual times of operation.

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Notam entry system nes june 2013 update

a: Go through Step One to populate the time range box with the words “Effective Immediately Until Further Notice”.

b: Next, click after the word notice and add the following words to designate your time frame for example: “1200-0430 UTC (0600 – 2100L)” Note – this is an EXAMPLE.

c: Which interprets to mean “effective immediately until further notice 0600 – 2100 Local” (the “L” is the abbreviation for “Local time” and UTC is the acronym for Greenwich Mean Time).

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Next step shape of tfr

Next Step – Shape of TFR

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013

For a circular TFR, continue to the next page or slide

For a polygon TFR, please go to Slide Number 39.


Notam entry system nes june 2013 update

15. “Affected Area”:

Select either “circle” or “polygon”. DO NOT SELECT “Corridor” as that is used for Presidential motorcades.

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Circular tfr for polygon tfrs go to slide 39

Circular TFR (For Polygon TFRs go to Slide #39.)

16. Enter Circle Radius as specified

on the TFR request form.

Suggested guideline is 5 NM

17. Enter latitude and longitude of the TFR. Remember to Type N (north) after latitude and W (west) after Longitude.

Remember TFRs Latitude and Longitude must be in Degree,Minutes,Seconds. NOT IN DECIMALS and with no punctuation. If you do not have the seconds, use zero’s.

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Notam entry system nes june 2013 update

Note the attempt to put in Degrees, Minutes, Tenths. It will be rejected by NES.

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Notam entry system nes june 2013 update

18. Click on “Find Navigation Aids” Button which will provide a list of the closest NavAid VORs.

19. Select the top NavAid as this is usually the closest to the incident. (But do not select it if it is a TVOR or a NDB – see Nav Aid discussion for more information.

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Notam entry system nes june 2013 update

20. When you check the VOR type, if it says “NDB” (Non Directional Beacon) or “TVOR” (Terminal VOR) , then do NOT use it and use the Nav aid listed below it. Even though NES lists it, it is NOT a valid or appropriate Nav aid for a TFR.

“As the name implies, the signal transmitted does not include inherent directional information, in contrast to other navigational aids such as Low Frequency Radio Range, VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) and TACAN. However, the NDB signal is affected more by atmospheric conditions, mountainous terrain, coastal refraction and electrical storms, particularly at long range.” Therefore we do not use them in a TFR.” (Wikipedia reference)

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


For example

For example

NES suggests St George (OZN)

Do not use even if it is the closest Nav Aid as it is a TVOR.

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


How to enter a polygon tfr

How to enter a polygon TFR

1. Latitude/Longitude information needs to be entered in a clockwise direction.

2. A rectangular shaped Polygon requires 4 data points.

3. You need to select the closest Navigation Aid for each Latitude/Longitude data point.

4. If possible, use the SAME Nav Aid for all data points. Do NOT use Canadian Nav Aids.

How do you know if a vor is a tvor

How do you know if a VOR is a TVOR?

  • You don’t! It’s not on a sectional. There are three ways to make sure it is not a TVOR:

    • Look in the Airport Flight Directory

    • Look up the VOR in AirNav.com

    • Check in IAMS

    • Did you forget what a TVOR is? It is a Terminal or Airport VOR often with limited range.

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Notam entry system nes june 2013 update

This is what you will see when you look up an airport in the Airport/Facility Directory (you can subscribe or find it on line if you Google “Airport/Flight Director on line at NACO). A TVOR (Airport VOR) will have a (T) in front of it. Do not use this VOR as your NAV Aid in your TFR as it has limited range. For example, notice that this NAV Aid for St. George (OZN) is not usable beyond 15 NM.

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


You can also check a nav aid type at www airnav com

You can also check a Nav Aid Type at www.airnav.com

Note under characteristics that it

Says T-VORW/DME which means it

Is a Terminal VOR associated with

An airport and has no distance.

Non directional beacon ndb discussion

Non Directional Beacon (NDB) Discussion

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013

  • Often, NES will list NDBs that have Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) particularly in Alaska. Care must be taken when using NES in Alaska to not use NDB’s.

  • There are 24 such facilities in Alaska

  • There are only 4 NDB/DME combinations in the lower 49.

    • Hailey, ID

    • North Carolina

    • Two in Minnesota


Ndb discussion continued

NDB Discussion continued

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013

While there are hundreds of NDB’s throughout the country and many of them are listed in NES, they should NOT be used as a navigational aid associated with a TFR.

“As the name implies, the signal transmitted does not include inherent directional information, in contrast to other navigational aids such as Low Frequency Radio Range, VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) and TACAN. However, the NDB signal is affected more by atmospheric conditions, mountainous terrain, coastal refraction and electrical storms, particularly at long range.” Therefore we do not use them in a TFR.” (Wikipedia reference)


Notam entry system nes june 2013 update

20. Check the VOR type – if it says “NDB” (Non Directional Beacon, then do NOT use it and use the navaid listed below it. Even though NES lists it, it is NOT a valid or appropriate navaid for a TFR. Do NOT SELECT. Use Burley.

“As the name implies, the signal transmitted does not include inherent directional information, in contrast to other navigational aids such as Low Frequency Radio Range, VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) and TACAN. However, the NDB signal is affected more by atmospheric conditions, mountainous terrain, coastal refraction and electrical storms, particularly at long range.” Therefore we do not use them in a TFR.” (Wikipedia reference)

So what am i looking at

So what am I looking at?

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013

You actually are looking at two circles; one red, one blue. Each circle represents the area closed by either the description of the Nav aid by distance or the latitude/longitude.

The FAA accepts a certain distance between the two circles. If the distance is too far, NES will give a suggestion as to how to fix either the latitude/longitude or bearing/distance. This can be an issue in Alaska.

NES presentation by Julie Stewart [email protected] 6/12/2013


Frequency

Frequency

27. Type in the Air to Air Frequency. You may use your Initial Attack Frequency since there have been noted delays in receiving a TFR frequency. You can always change the TFR when you receive the new frequency but suggest you do not change it in the middle of a shift. Work with the AOBD and change the frequency at the end of the day or in the early morning. NOTE – if your TFR exceeds 20 NMs, please contact either the Incident or GACC Communication officer as there may be some issues that need to be worked out with the FAA.

28. Why is it optional? Because some TFRs for other disasters such as hurricanes, tornado’s, etc may not have an established air to air frequency.

The FAA’s Area Managers initials will show up after ARTCC code when they have looked at the TFR. The FAA will then do their internal screening (checking with their sectors, going through their checklist) and then the TFR is sent to the USNOF (US NOTAM Office). The draft will drop down to “Drafts Pending edit/review by the USNOF”. After a screening process by the USNOF, the draft will drop to the “Drafts Pending entry into the USNS. When the draft disappears from the work list, you may to go DINS on the internet (immediate) or to FAA.gov (allow 15 minutes) to see you TFR.
