ATC07.1 — AMAN tools and procedures

Implement Basic Arrival Manager (AMAN) tools to improve sequencing and metering of arrival aircraft in selected TMAs and airports.
The AMAN tools interact with several systems, including the host Flight Data Processing System (FDPS) and Surveillance Data Processing System (SDPS) resulting in a 'planned' time for any individual flight.
Since the AMAN has certain conditions it needs to satisfy (such as the required landing rate, or spacing, on the runway), when 2 or more aircraft are predicted at or around the same time on the runway it plans a sequence, generating new 'required' times that need to be applied to the flight(s), in order to create/maintain the sequence.
AMAN also outputs the required time for the ATCO in the form of Time To Lose (TTL)/Time To Gain (TTG) information. The controller is then responsible for finding and applying an appropriate method (vectoring, path stretching, speed changes or holding) for the aircraft to meet its time or position in the sequence.

FOR MILITARY AUTHORITIES: It is the responsibility of each Military Authority to review this ESSIP Objective IN ITS ENTIRETY and address each of the SloAs that the Military Authority considers RELEVANT for itself. This has to be done on top and above of the review of "MIL" SloAs which identify actions EXCLUSIVE to MIL Authorities.
