At Reims UAC, DSNA, the French Air Navigation Service Provider, is deploying a permanent technical architecture supported by operational networks and Control Working Position (CWP)'s dedicated HMI. This new system called “4 Me” introduces new services and System Wide Information Management (SWIM) web-services such as :
- XMAN procedures (plug & play integration of new airports such as Zurich in March 2017)
- Extended ATC Planning procedures, including dissemination of Short Term ATFCM Measures onto the CWP
- Interactive weather information
- Network Manager flight 4D-profile access from the CWP
After the success of the live trials, the first build with some of these services was granted with a full operational status since 8th December 2016 and the project received the approval of the French National Supervisory Authority. Karine, Air Traffic Controller and Flow Manager at Reims UAC, said: “The “4Me” HMI is very intuitive and user friendly. It’s very helpful on the position, improving situational awareness and allowing the introduction of new procedures without excessive additional workload.”

Developed using Agile iterative processes, “4Me” is now targeting a new Air Traffic Flow & Capacity Management service to be trialed during spring 2017. A concrete step into SWIM deployment at operational level.
