In preparation for the planned start of operations at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport (BER), the A-CDM project was launched as a joint effort by the airport operating company FBB and DFS (German Air Traffic Control). The partners developed the A-CDM process as well as new traffic management systems which are intended to provide optimal support for that process. Final testing was carried out on the NMOC interface. The way was clear for a successful rollout of the A-CDM process at BER.
After the failed launch of BER, the decision was made to transfer the new process and the new traffic management systems to Berlin-Schönefeld Airport (SXF). The goal was and still remains to make good use of the time until BER goes into operation, to continue developing the process and systems locally, and also to start reaping the benefits of the process immediately at SXF.
Starting in mid-2019, adaptation of the A-CDM process for BER was completed by FBB and DFS and integrated into the partners’ processes at the airport. The A-CDM process SXF will be merged seamlessly into the A-CDM process BER on 1st November 2020.
