air movement data
Terms Definitions
Need for Air Movement Data
Air movement data provides a warning to the AD System resulting in quicker and more efficient identification.
Sources of Air Movement Data
Flights plans, FPDS, Electronic Data Display Update System, Totes, Signals, ATO, NOTAM, FLYPRO, AEW Tasking, EW Tasking, M-ALFENS, STARS, Intelligence, SITREP.
When are Flight Plans filed?
Can be filed for any flight but must be filed for the following: in CAS with IMC at night, in CAS under IFR, Class D and C, Class A, Flights crossing the UK FIR boundary, Flights using Air Traffic Advisory Service.
ADNC Roles
To provide information on the movement of civil and military aircraft in accordance with AD requirements and to assist in tracing Unidentified aircraft.
RFI=Routine request to find info on an aircraft. Query=More urgent request where ADNC drop everything else and focus on getting info.
Handover/Takeover Format
AOR-System Serviceability-QRA-MRTs-MRTs Expected-AOB
MRT Handover/Takeover
Handover ID-NTN-Position-C/S-Routing-Squawk-AOB.
D&D Liaison
Emergency Type-Position-Callsign-Aware?
Track Production Area: Area o defined dimensions within which the CRC has responsibility for the production and subsequent ID of all tracks within its AOR.
Area of Operational Interest
Area in which automatic cross-telling o tracks of interest is provided to an adjacent site based on established criteria, such as identity and location.
Track Continuity area
Track Continuity Area: An area within which all tracks are automatically cross-told between adjacent TPAs to allow continuity o tracking.
Alert Allocation Areas
Local to a CRC and are used to divide the TPA into quadrants forte purpose of alert ownership. 2 types of alert allocation area: Identity and Tracking.
Air Surveillance Area
APA 1 is divided into ASAs. E3s are assigned specific ASAs.
Need for Track Filtering
Exchanging data must be the correct data and is exchanged in the correct priority and is accurate. Track filtering does this.
Concepts of track filtering
To only send out tracks if interest to the receiving unit. Useful to void double tracking, reduce loading and transmitting interesting tracks. Normally UCCS does it automatically but I not then must be completed manually.
How can track filtering be manipulated?
Geographical area, range. Environment, identity, height, individual track.
Need for Track correlation
To connect a number of sources and make them one. Used when one or more source is contributing to a picture and ensures only one track for each aircraft.
Need for Tracking
Differentiate categories, tracks of interest can be monitored, prevents misunderstanding and ensures effective BM.
Purpose of NAIs and NATs
NAIs=Non-Automatic Initiation Area where the system will not initiate tracks on plots other than for emergencies. NATs=Non Automatic Tracking Area where the system will not initiate or update tracks, other than for emergencies.
Local/Remote Tracks
Local is a track held by your system. Remote is a track held by an external agency's system...Not our track. It will become our track when we gain radar contact.
Voice Telling Tracks
Where tracks are told over voice comms. Slow but only way when no DDL.
Track Fusion
Fusing inputs from multiple sources to create a Common Operating Picture and supervised by the SD.
Upper airspace above FL 195
Principle ATC Documents
MMATM, flips, en route succulents, en route charts, airspace chart by area.
Airspace regulations regarding world flights
The movements of the specifically task aircraft to carry one or more the following members of the world family. Temporary controlled airspace, temporary control zones, temporarily controlled areas, temporary control airways, loyal low-level corridors.
Vertical Airspace
Lower Airspace - SFC-Below FL100. Middle Airspace - FL100-FL245. Upper Airspace - FL245-UNLTD
Location of the aeronautical rescue coordination Centre
The ARCC is based at RAFKinloss
Locations of the search and rescue units
Lossiemouth, Bulmer, LeconfieldWattisham, chivenor, Valley
Location of the mountain rescue teams
Four. Kinloss Leuchars Leeming Valley
Actions on aircraft in distress
Inform D and D, identified the track k if appropriate, inform the rest of the ops room, label as emergency, monitor the track until it fades, park track upon fading.
Continental early warning locations and tactical call sites
Nadge 1-6. Strida 1-2.
Need for different identification systems.
Environment/service. Data handling systems. Commander directives. Implementation costs.
Constant efforts amplifying descriptors
Mixup. Vampire. Jammer. Renegade.
Link 11 identification
Based on a three layer identification definition. Primary identification/primary amplification/identification application. Allows precise definition of aircraft role.
Defining the constant efforts identifications.
Consult document.
Mandatory reporting tracks
A track that would always be cross told to an adjacent track production area unless good reason.
Define identification.
The determination of an identity by means or combination of: Visual recognition, flight plan correlation, electronic interrogation, Track behaviour, acoustic information, current orders for meeting and recognition of air traffic.
Means of identification
Confidential - constant effort
Define hostile act
Firing on an aircraft, dropping paratroopers, Landing troops, attacking forces, manoeuvres in to launch position, reconnaissance.
Define hostile intent
Penetrate S space a high-speed, preparing to lay sweet Boarhunt mines inside international waters, conduct electronic warfare/targeting all reconnoissance in Airspace.
International emergency radio frequencies
UHF 243.0 VHF 121.5
MRT Procedures
Anticipate - Locate - Confirm Squawk - ID - Correlate - Monitor - Handover
Anticipate Sources
Flight plans/Missions - Totes - Signals - NOTAMS - Personnel at CRC - Other Units
