FCM07 — Calculated Take-off Time (CTOT) to Target Times for ATFCM purposes

Target Times (TT) shall be applied to selected flights for ATFCM purposes to manage ATFCM at the point of congestion rather than only at departure. Where available, the Target Times of Arrival (TTA) shall be derived from the Airport Operations Plan (AOP). TTAs shall be used to support airport arrival sequencing processes in the en-route phase.
NM's systems shall be able to adjust CTOTs based on refined and agreed TTAs at the destination airport; TTAs shall be integrated into the AOP for subsequent refinement of the NOP.
Flight data processing systems may need to be adapted in order to process downlinked trajectory data (ADS-C EPP).

In a first step, NM system will transmit calculated Target Times (TT) at the most penalising regulation reference point in addition to Calculated Take-Off Times (CTOT) to all concerned users of CTOT. Those users should be able to manage this new feature and potential system upgrades should be foreseen

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.

NOTE: This is an "Initial" objective to provide advance notice to stakeholders. Some aspects of the objective require further validation.
