AOP04.2 — Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) Level 2

Implement A-SMGCS Level 2 which consists of an airport surface surveillance system (i.e. A-SMGCS Level 1) complemented by the A-SMGCS function to detect potential conflicts on runways and intrusions into restricted areas and provide the controllers with appropriate alerts.

The implementation of A-SMGCS Level 1 is a pre-requisite for the implementation of A-SMGCS Level 2.

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.
