Introduction to SAAs

Overview of the SAA System


Lessons Learned

Next Steps


Introduction to special activity airspaces saas l.jpg
Introduction to Special Activity Airspaces (SAAs)

Special Use Airspace (SUA)

Airspace in which activities must be confined or limitations may be imposed on aircraft, generally below en route airspace

Air Traffic Controlled Assigned Airspace (ATCAA)

En Route airspace analogous to SUAs

SAAs may depend on many other features

NAVAIDs, airports, runways, cities, other airspaces, geographic features or arbitrary points

Goals for the saa project l.jpg
Goals for the SAA Project

Define SUAs and ATCAAs in a consistent manner using an editing tool

Use a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to distribute that data to interested users

Manage the schedule and status of those airspaces through a SOA


The creator editor tool l.jpg
The Creator/Editor Tool

Allow a user to create and modify SAAs

SAAs defined using AIXM 5.0

Controlling agency. FAA, Oakland ARTCC.

Using Agency. U.S. Navy, Commander, Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center, NAS, Fallon, NV.

  • Generate the SUA 7400.8 legal definition from the AIXM definition

Using Lucy and LuciadMap v9

This version has an extension to support for AIXM 5.0

Users of the first release are NFDC


Static repository l.jpg
Static Repository

Stores the static definitions of SAAs in AIXM 5.0

Notifies subscribers of new SAAs created and old SAAs updated

JMS pub/sub services

Provides the SAA definitions to users

SOAP request/response web services


Operational repository l.jpg
Operational Repository

Accepts schedule requests and airspace status changes

SOAP request/response web services

Distributes schedule and airspace status updates

JMS pub/sub services


Benefits l.jpg

One definitive source for SUA definitions

Currently there are multiple digital definitions for SUAs and none accurately represent the complete SUA legal definition

The AIXM definition of the SUA generates the legal definition

Provide an accurate picture of SAA utilization


Swim integration l.jpg
SWIM Integration

The SAA project is an FAA System Wide Information Management (SWIM) implementing program.

SWIM implementing programs use Progress FUSE products for their SOA infrastructure

ESB (based on Apache ServiceMix)

Message Broker (based on Apache ActiveMQ)

Services Framework (based on Apache CXF)

Mediation Router (based on Apache Camel)

Able to implement AIXM 5.0 services with FUSE ESB 4.2


Next steps for the saa project l.jpg
Next Steps for the SAA Project

  • Deploy the system this year

  • Add support for AIXM 5.1 for the second release

  • Have the Editor adopted earlier in the workflow of designing SAAs

    • Military use of the Editor to define SUAs

    • Implement the Review and Comment System for the back and forth dialogue and approvals of SAAs


Next steps for the saa project15 l.jpg
Next Steps for the SAA Project

  • Expand the consumers of the Operational Repository service

    • The Air Force’s Central Scheduling Enterprise (CSE)

    • Airlines

    • En Route Automation Modernization (ERAM)
