This course provides in-depth knowledge of the Services (Surveillance, Airport Safety Support, Routing and Guidance) and requirements for an Advanced-Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) to support their deployment at an aerodrome. It mainly reflects the content of the EUROCONTROL Specification for A-SMGCS Services published in 2018.

The Airport Safety Support and the Routing Services  are planned for synchronised deployment in a total of 24 airports in Europe, in accordance with the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 716/2014 of 27 June 2014 [12] on the establishment of the Pilot Common Project (PCP).
This course elaborates on the experience gained from the European implementation of A-SMGCS Surveillance and Runway Monitoring and Conflict Alerting (RMCA) Services and includes the new Services (Airport Safety Support, Routing and Guidance) that have been subject to validation in the SESAR programme.

The course also includes practical exercises with ITWP.
