The purpose of the airspace data management is to organise and provide all necessary airspace information to feed the core Network Manager Operational systems (Integrated Initial Flight Plan Processing System (IFPS) and Enhanced Tactical Flow Management System (ETFMS)) and the systems of our operational stakeholders. The information we provide consists of:
The Network Manager Operations Centre (NMOC) filters this information and uses it to update the Central Airspace and Capacity Database (CACD) (common airspace data repository feeding operational systems and enabling aeronautical data services). The airspace data is validated prior to distribution.
This activity leads to dynamic, semi-dynamic (during the current Aeronautical Information Regulation and Control (AIRAC) cycle), or static (for the next AIRAC cycles) systems database updates.
The service is only available to EUROCONTROL Member States and for the Computerised flight plan service provider (CFSPs) operating flights in the EUROCONTROL area.
Applicable proceduresto receive the ENV dossier can be found in the Network operations handbook, the Provision of central airspace and capacity database (CACD) data manual, the Flexible Use of Airspace (FUA), or airspace management cell (AMC) ECAC centralised airspace data function (CADF) operations manual, in the Airspace management (ASM) handbook, and the NM B2B web services reference manuals.
