The high number of runway incursions and weather dependent airport throughput occurrences has led to the development of an Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS). The basic levels of A-SMGCS 1&2 support mainly tower air traffic controllers through the provision of a weather independent complete traffic situation and a basic runway safety net. A high-level A-SMGCS will support controllers as well as pilots and vehicle drivers with services for surveillance, control, routing/planning and guidance in a holistic manner. In 2004 ICAO published the A-SMGCS manual (Document 9830), which describes operational, functional and performance requirements. However, at this time, procedures and operational requirements for the higher levels of A-SMGCS were relatively immature or inexistent. The present paper addresses higher level services of an A-SMGCS, in particular routing, departure management (DMAN), advanced runway safety nets (A-RSN), data link communication (TAXI-CPDLC), and onboard guidance. Under the umbrella of EMMA2 (European Airport Management by A-SMGCS, part two), an Integrated Project of the 6th European framework programme, a holistic A-SMGCS concept that included procedures and requirements was developed. This concept was tested in extensive simulation and field trials at four European airports (Prague Ruzyne, Milan Malpensa, Toulouse Blagnac and Paris Charles de Gaulle), using diverse technical solutions and test platforms. The most important results and recommendations are presented in this paper. They provide feedback regarding their operational feasibility in general, and new procedures and requirements in particular. These results represent an important milestone to support ongoing research in SESAR and NextGen.
