AOP04.1 — Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) Level1

Implement A-SMGCS Level I which consists of an airport surface surveillance system that provides ATC with the position and automatic identity of:

- All relevant aircraft on the movement area;
- All relevant vehicles on the manoeuvring area.

A-SMGCS Level 1 surveillance data may be used to replace visual observation as required, in accordance with ICAO EUR Doc 7030, chapter 6.5.6 (approved March 2009), and as the basis of controller decision making. Traffic will be controlled through the use of appropriate procedures allowing the issuance of information and clearances to traffic on the basis of A-SMGCS Level 1 surveillance data.

Apron management units, airlines and other interested parties may also benefit from the provision of A-SMGCS Level 1 surveillance data.

A-SMGCS Level 1 is a prerequisite for A-SMGCS Level 2.

All reference documentation listed in SLoAs is available via the EUROCONTROL website: https://www.eurocontrol.int/articles/advanced-surface-movement-guidance-and-control-systems-smgcs

NOTE 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.
