AOP04.2 — Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) Runway Monitoring and Conflict Alerting (RMCA) (former Level 2)

Runway Monitoring and Conflict Alerting (RMCA) (former Level 2) is the first element of the A-SMGCS 'Airport Safety Support' service. Implementation Objective AOP12 covers the other elements of the Airport Safety Support service which are the Conflicting ATC clearances (CATC) and Conformance Monitoring Alerts for Controllers (CMAC).

Implementation of a Runway Monitoring and Conflict Alerting (RMCA) functionality consists of an airport surface surveillance system (i.e. A-SMGCS Surveillance - former Level 1) complemented with a short term conflicting alerting tool that monitors movements on or near the runway and detects conflicts between an aircraft and another mobile as well as runway incursion by intruders. Appropriate alerts are visualised on the controller's HMI.

The implementation of A-SMGCS Surveillance a pre-requisite for the implementation of Runway Monitoring and Conflict Alerting.

NOTE FOR MILITARY AUTHORITIES: It is the responsibility of each military authority to review this 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 military authorities.
