In preparation for the planned start of operations at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport (BER), the A-CDM project was launched as a joint project 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 (then still known as CFMU). 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.
In May 2013, the A-CDM process was successfully rolled out at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport.
