3.1  Purpose
What is the purpose of the NOP Portal?
The NOP Portal aims at facilitating the CFMU Users’ access to all kinds of dynamic data and operational information in a consolidated way. Information is displayed according to the ATFCM phases: Strategic, Pre-tactical, Tactical, & Post Operations. The ultimate goal is to facilitate decision making for all ATFCM actors by sharing the most up to date view on the Network Operations situation along the ATFCM cycle (plans, events, scenarios, real-time information on flights and measures, etc.).

Objectives
The NOP Portal achieves the following objectives, as defined in the DMEAN Concept of Operations: 1. 2. 3. 4. Reflect the ASM / ATFCM decision status at the time they have been taken; Enable a common understanding of the Network situation; Present potential disturbances that could impact the Network and that could induce appropriate actions for risk mitigation; Assist Airspace Users to take their operational decisions

5. Assist Planners to build their local ATM plans and adjust them along the ATFCM phases, in full mutual coordination. All in all, the NOP Portal is the enabler of the operational CDM processes supporting ATM in Europe.

Content management
The NOP Portal is updated dynamically according to operational needs. This means that the frequency of updates may be seasonal, daily, or ad-hoc in real-time depending on the nature of the information. The publication cycle of the operational information follows the principles described in the CFMU Basic Handbook / ATFCM User Manual. The NOP Portal content is managed by a CFMU NOP office team for general and strategic information during office hours and by the CFMU operations teams on duty for the pre-tactical and tactical information.

Evolutions
The NOP Portal is evolving on a continuous basis. It is intended to extend progressively its functionalities to accommodate users’ requirements and to follow the overall evolution of the ATFCM Network Operations towards a more dynamic management of capacity. The use of state-of-the-art technologies allows the fast implementation of new features (additional portlets, navigation updates, etc.). It is therefore intended to deliver short term improvements in the portal layout several times across the year independently of the CFMU releases development cycle. In the medium term, evolutions are foreseen to allow content customization per category of users, content personalization by the end-user, and to integrate new collaboration tools in support of the CFMU CDM (Collaborative Decision Making) processes. The roadmap for the NOP Portal evolutions will be established in conjunction with the CFMU users groups.

3.2  Technical Prerequisites
The Portal will work best with Internet Explorer (version 7) and Firefox (version 3.6 and above) on a high resolution screen. The ideal display size would be 1600x1200. You will also need a recent Flash plugin installed (minimum 10)- check your current configuration on: http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_15507 (http://www.macromedia.com/software/flash/about/)

If you see the above screen, you can skip point 3. below and go directly to point 4.

3. Alert Messages
However, depending on your system's configuration, you may get the alert message below (the look and wording may differ from one browser make and version to another):

It is perfectly safe to continue and open the website - this is a known issue and will be resolved in the near future so that windows will not show anymore. Another message is then likely to pop up:

Again, it is perfectly safe to continue - besides this message might never show, as it is resulting from your personal Internet settings...

4. Filling in the login form
Insert you UserID (e.g. p0abc, r1ab0, etc - in lower case) in the UserName field, along with the password generated by your token in the Passcode (RSA SecurID) field. If the login fails, it is strongly recommended to clear your Browser cache (for Internet Explorer, in Tools > Internet Options > Delete Temporary Internet Files) before attempting to login again.

5. Role and Domain Selection
You should now see the CFMU Login Page. Depending on your authentication level, the procedure will be slightly different but driving to the same concept: entering your UserName in the first field, then typing in your Passcode (or Password) in the relevant field. In case you can have access to several roles, next comes a screen prompting you to select a Role and a Domain. The proposed options may vary according to your access rights - all you need is to select the one that applies to you and/or to the task you wish to perform with the Portal. In case your UserName is associated to a single role, you will not see this and will go directly to the Portal.

Click on the Go Sign In button to get directed to the Portal default page. When successful, you should be able to view the portal main view in Tactical phase

The NOP Portal layout consists in a Header (that manages the navigation) and 5 main areas, which correspond to the ATFCM phases:
    

Strategic Pre-tactical Tactical Post-Operations Resources (general reference information, not specifically related to any ATFCM phase).

More information of the ATFCM phases in the Timeline Navigation Concept (Section 4.1). The NOP Portal layout is consistent across all the pages to facilitate users’ navigation. For instance, News and Calendar are always displayed at the top right, ATFCM Messages at the top left, the main information of the period at the top centre, the ATM functions at the middle right, and the collaboration functions at the bottom centre. The overall layout is summarised below.

NOP Portal - User Guide

14

Each Portal main page is made of Portlets: individual content boxes each with its own title bar displaying text, images, links or data dynamically fed by the CFMU back-end applications (ETFMS, IFPS, DWH,...) or by the Portal content editor named WIND. Each portlet can be collapsed or expanded by means of or buttons in the Portlet title bar. Your setup will be saved within your browser settings, and restored if you use the same browser for another session (even after reboot). The layout settings will later be part of the Users Preferences (Section 4.2.2), allowing the layout settings to be restored on any browser and computer where you will log in. In a similar way, the button will open a Contextual Help (Section 5.1.4) window.

3.7  Printing from the Portal
A. Printing from the Main View This may differ from each make and version, but is basically obtained under the "File..." and then "Print ..." function of your browser.

B. Printing from a Detached (Section 5.2) View Since no toolbar is present in the detached view, you will need to hit the <Ctrl> and the <P> keys of your keyboard to invoke the print dialog box. You can beforehand specify the display mode of the detached view, using the Display toggle button located in the header, right after the right Set button.

This is the setting by default - the Screen mode. The header is kept visible at all times, and the vertical scrolling only affects the data tables. Click on the icon to toggle in the Print mode. The Print mode is used when you want to keep the header and the data together in one piece - typically for sending the whole content of a page to a printer. Click on the icon to toggle in the Screen mode.

NOP Portal - User Guide 4  Header

16

4.1  Timeline Navigation Concept
This is the Header of the Portal, from which you can navigate across the different areas of the Portal.

The Timeline features 4 different Phases tabs, based on the ATFCM cycle: Post-Operations, Tactical, PreTactical and Strategic. Each covers a specific time span, as outlined below (D being the current date):
   

Post-Operations: D+1 at 00:00 onwards Tactical: D (00:00 to 24:00 UTC) PreTactical: D-6 to D-1 inclusive Strategic: D-12 months to D-7 days inclusive

These tabs allow you to navigate from one Phase to another. In addition, the selected tab rises to provide a visual indication of where you stand in the ATFCM cycle. A fifth tab is featured as well, opening the Resources page containing reference material not linked to time.

Navigate in Time
The Portal opens by default with the Tactical phase selected. A first way to change from one phase to another, and see the Portal content from a different time perspective, is by means of the Date Picker, to be found in the Target Date pane as shown in the red box below.

Clicking on the

icon opens the Date Picker.

The Date Pickers behaves as you may expect from its layout, the left and right arrows going one month back or forth, and the square recalling the current date.

Once a date is clicked, the Date Picker vanishes and the Target Date pane shows, and the Date field (with the pale green background) is updated with the selected value - in this example, November 14th, 2008. Note that the Target Date has not been changed yet. You need to first click on the blinking Set button to change it to the selected value (red outline).

NOP Portal - User Guide
Doing so updates the Target Date and resets the Date field.

17

Note that you can also type the next target date directly in the Date field, following the DD/MM/YYYY format (and confirm with the Set button).

4.2  Header Buttons
Depending on the user role and profile, a number of buttons are available to provide additional functionalities to the Header.

    

HELP: opens the Global Help pages (All users) PREFERENCES: opens the Preferences Editor - detailed below (All users) VERSION: shows the current version of the Portal (Developers) WIND: opens the NOP Portal content editor (Contributors) VIEW: shows the Publishing workflow (Contributors) The two orange buttons (VIEW and WIND) are actually reserved to Portal Contributors. You may therefore not see them when you login to the Portal - this is simply because you will not need them.

4.2.1 Global Help
A global Help function is made available from the header:

Clicking on the Help button opens a pop up window, giving access to a comprehensive Help document. A complete navigation system allows the user to search, browse, bookmark and print any page within the Help system.

NOP Portal - User Guide 4.3  Searching the Portal
The Search function is located in the top right corner of the Header in the Main View..

19

Type in your query in the light green text field and click on the SEARCH button to open a Search Detached View listing all the found matches. The query is case insensitive, and can be one or several words separated by spaces. You can also directly click on the SEARCH button to open the Detached View and launch your query from there.

4.3.1 Search Text
Definitions
In order to make the best use of the Search function, here are a few definitions as how the Portal considers your queries:

4.3.1.1 Text
A Text is a sequence of one or more Items, separated by a space. Example: "a collection of words" +single_word -another_single_word one_last_word

4.3.1.2 Item
An Item is a group consisting of an (optional) sign in from of a Term. Example: +single_word or -"first_word second_word"

4.3.1.3 Term
A Term is a single word, or a collection of words within opening and closing double quotes. The quotes are telling the system that the space between the words is not to be interpreted as a separator - ore more simply, that the text string between the quotes is the entity for which you are searching a match. Example: "first_word second_word third_word"

Searching for Text
If an unsigned term matches a keyword with a Damerau-Levenstein distance of at the most 2, the application considers this term as a match (effectively, the search algorithm allows the user up to 2 spelling mistakes) and, depending on the result of the matching process of signed terms, the document will be added to the search result.

Refining the Search
Additional features allow you refine your search:

the "+" sign right in front of the term: the related term must match a keyword in exactly the same spelling, baring letter casing the "-" sign: if a keyword exists that matches the related term then the whole document is struck from the set of matching documents

4.3.2 Search Results
The Portal Search Detached View lists all the entries matching the searched term(s).

If the search was initiated from the NOP portal header, the results are displayed in a new search window. If the search was initiated from the search window, the search window is refreshed with the results. A color coding tells you the quality of the found match:
 

20

a partial match is indicated with an orange bullet: a full match is indicated with a green bullet:

See below an example with the query 'EBBR EDDY':

This tells you that 15 matches were found in 5 FCUs: ATFCM Events, Country, etc. Notice the two green expand boxes , indicating that they contain one or more full match. The fully expanded view looks like this:

Drilling down information
Move your mouse over a result bullet to reveal the matching keyword(s) and scoring:

In similar fashion, move your mouse over a title (light blue link) to get its summary, providing there is something to show. As a matter of fact, the tooltip is not available in all FCUs.

4.4  Logout
The Logout function is located in the top right corner of the Header. It is part of the User Credentials module, showing the user ID with which you have logged on the Portal.

NOP Portal - User Guide 5  Portlets and Detached Views

23

5.1  Portlets General Features 5.1.1 Portlet Definition
A portlet is a window providing a synthetic piece of content on a portal page. This content may be static, or dynamic – with interfaces for dialogue with the user, and with data/graphical information/transactions provided by back-end applications. This window is configurable within the portal, and gives access to more detailed information: tools and applications, news, reference material, web pages…. In the Portal, the Portlets are grouped by nature and usage, as explained in the Global Layout (Section 3.6) section.

There are two buttons in the Title bar, one collapsing or expanding the portlet to respectively its content, and the other to call a Contextual help (Section 5.1.4) window.

reveal or

hide

A portlet will typically show a very synthetic rendering of the data, and whenever relevant present some basic navigation, filtering or querying mechanism to facilitate the retrieval of more detailed information. This information is presented through a pop up window called Detached View (Section 5.2) in the context of the Portal. Several detached views can be left open at a time, for comparison purposes or for later reference.

5.1.2 Portlets Scope
Every Portlet does not show on all pages. Depending on its scope, it will be displayed according to the ATFCM Phase in which the Header is set.

5.1.3 Portlet Availability
It is of importance to understand that not all Portlets are available in every ATFCM Phase. Whenever irrelevant, they simply do not appear on the screen. This is the case for the RAD portlet, not showing in Post-Operations. In a similar way, CIR will not appear in Strategic. It may also happen that a Portlet is present (showing the border and title bar), but displays no content. In this case, a message will tell the reason for the absence of data, as for instance (the exact wording may vary between Portlets, but the overall meaning will be the same):

The [name of the Portlet, for instance "Network Daily Plan"] is currently not yet available : this

means that the data is not available yet for the context (day and/or time) in which it is requested.

25

You are not authorized to see [name of the Portlet, for instance "Flights"]: this means that your profile does not grant you access to some restricted information. Data is no longer available: this means that the requested data is no longer accessible from the Portal.

This list is not exhaustive, but as a general rule the displayed message will be such as to make clear the cause of the data unavailability.

5.1.4 Contextual Help
Each portlet has its own contextual Help page, which can be opened at any time by clicking on the Help button located in the title bar.

Each Help page provides, whenever relevant, links to other concepts of interest, in the form of See also links as shown below, taken from the ATFCM Events page.

Should it not be sufficient, the whole navigation system (Table of Content, menu buttons and toolbar) is available as well to provide every possible mean to dig for additional information.

NOP Portal - User Guide

27

Detached Views appear under the same NOP header reminding that they are issued from the Portal - be it on your screen or when printed. The header may also display the name of their portlet of origin when relevant. A Target Date selector is sometimes also present in the header, to modify the dates for which queries can be launched. Navigation tabs and query areas typically reside at the top of the window, whereas the body content can be of various nature:
   

messages lists links etc.

Whenever relevant, one -or more- query areas allow further filtering or sorting operations on the current query result, or the launch of new queries within the same context.

Loading data - Waiting time
Some queries can put a significantly heavy load on the Portal server, and take some time to be calculated and presented back in your browser. To provide a strong visual clue that your computer is indeed waiting for a response from the server and not simply frozen, the classical hourglass pointer has been replaced with a light indigo transparent overlay, telling you that your query is being processed.

5.2.1 Error Messages
When a query can not be performed, the Detached View window freezes and is shaded with a light red transparent overlay indicating that an error was encountered. A pale yellow Alert box also appears, detailing the cause of the error, and if possible providing information on how to solve the problem. You need to click on the OK button to close the Alert box, unfreeze the window and resume working.

In the above example, the query was launched with no data in the Airspace search field - while it is a mandatory field which must contain at least 1 alphabetic or numeric character. In the other example below, the message tells you that the requested service is momentarily not available.

Screen Mode
The vertical scrolling only affects the data tables. This allows the table headers to be visible at all times, for an easier on-screen reading.

This setting is however ill-suited for printing, since it only prints what is visible in the window - and in some cases only one of the frames (the header OR the table).

Print Mode
This mode is used when you want to keep the header and the data together in one piece - typically for sending the whole content of a page to a printer. See how the scroll bar on the left of the image now encompasses the whole window:

6.6  Airspace Structure
Typical Scope:

The Airspace Structure Portlet presents some elements formerly carried by the seasonal Network Operations Plan. This is were you will find information and documents on some Airports best practices, or other Airport related facts to be brought to the attention of the whole community.

6.7  ANM
Typical Scope:

The ANM (ATFCM Notification Message) is a message issued by the CFMU Operations to notify all concerned in the Aviation community of any ATFCM regulations. The ANMs resulting from the ATFCM Daily Plan are sent the day before the day of operations upon finalisation and release of the plan around 16.00/17.00 UTC summer/winter time. Each ANM has an associated released date/time stamp. When the Portlet is refreshed - and if the ANM has a newer date/time stamp that the former one - the "new" item is displayed against a colored background, to draw the attention of the user.

Note: Clicking on the link returns the Portlet to its normal status (the color background is removed). Clicking on the highlighted link opens the ANM List window depicted below, listing all regulations matching the default query - which means all regulations for the selected Day of Operation, with no filter applied, and sorted by FMP Identifier and Regulation Number. Note that the query area at the top of the window features filtering and sorting options.

The ATFCM Events portlet lists in 4 different categories the most recent ATFCM Events relevant to the selected Target Date:

Special Events: foreseen events that may lead to a substantial drop in the capacity of the European Network, requiring ATFCM actions to minimize consequences and to optimize network capacity. Axis Management: a CDM process which optimizes seasonal flows of traffic across the European Network. Military Events: large military exercises/activities requiring a special reservation/segregation of airspace that have significant impact on the available routes and capacity within the European ATM network. Critical Events: sudden and usually unforeseen events that lead to a substantial drop in the capacity of the ATM network, requiring immediate ATFCM action to minimize consequences and to retrieve network stability.

 

They all share a common ATFCM Events List Detached View, but clicking on one of the highlighted categories will open the ATFCM Events List window with the relevant tab (Special Events, Axis Management, Military Events or Critical Events) already selected. Here the More button displays all the events for the target date, however unfiltered, in the Detached View.

6.8.1 Consulting ATFCM Events per Category
Consulting the events per Category
A definition of each type of event is provided under each tab: Axis Management: Axis Management is a CDM process which optimises seasonal flows of traffic across the European Network. The process starts in advance and has as an output ATFCM Measures (e.g., re-routings, FL capping or alternative routings) that would be further consolidated and applied on the day of operations. This output is discussed and agreed through dedicated CDM conferences (either via a meeting or an econference) and there is a monitoring process to fine-tune the event management as well. Special Events Special Events are plannable events that may lead to a substantial drop in the capacity of the European Network, requiring ATFCM actions to minimise consequences and to optimise network capacity. They are of different nature (ATM changes, including changes in ACC configurations and locations and in systems, sporting events, major social events, etc) expected to affect the demand and have a significant impact on Operations. These events are early notified, allowing an advanced assessment of the likely impact, and a collaborative planning to define the appropriate ATFCM measures to minimise the effects on airspace users and to ensure network stability. Military Events Military Events are large military exercises/activities requiring a special reservation/segregation of airspace that have significant impact on the available routes and capacity within the European ATM network. These events are early notified, allowing an advanced assessment of the likely impact, and a collaborative planning to define the appropriate ATFCM measures, like the suspension of part of the RAD for specified

periods and/or additional routeings, in such a way that they can be accommodated while minimising the effects on other airspace users and ensuring network stability. Critical Events Critical Events are sudden and usually unforeseen events that lead to a substantial drop in the capacity of the ATM system, requiring immediate ATFCM action to minimise consequences and to retrieve network stability.

In this example, the Special Events scheduled for the selected Target Date are displayed in a list, inside the Online Special Events panel which is selected by default. On the other hand, the Archived Special Events contain all the archived events matching the selection criteria (in this case, Target Date + Special Events) The three other ATFCM Event categories (Axis Management, Military Events or Critical Events) feature a similar filtering between online events and archived ones. From the ATFCM Events List Detached View, you can browse between the different categories without needing to come back to the Portlet on the main page. Please continue with the next topic (Section 6.8.2)...

The ATFCM Network Situation displays a map of Europe, where certain ACC areas are colour coded to indicate ATFCM delays for these areas. Four types of delays are displayed, ranging from over 45 minutes to less than 15 minutes. < 15 min < 30 min < 45 min > 45 min For the Token (Section 3.3.1) Users (users of the Protected Portal), two buttons currently appear at the bottom of the Portlet, namely Beta and More. The users of the Public Portal (not requiring a login) will only see the More button so all information pertaining to the Interactive Map is not relevant in that context. For the Token (Section 3.3.1) Users, two buttons currently appear at the bottom of the Portlet, namely Beta and More. The Beta button opens a Detached View (Section 6.10.3) displaying a map connected to the operational system, enabling you to extract operational information. This beta function will be available in dual mode with the former static map, available under the More button. This dual mode will be sustained until the release of CFMU14 (scheduled around may 2010), where the dynamic operational map will replace the static one for good.

This Portlet is present in two ATFCM Phases. The measurements upon which it is based is different, and therefore the rendered map different as well. See the following topics for details:

The ATFCM Daily Plan is a set of Tactical ATFCM measures (e.g. activation of Routing Scenarios, regulations, etc.) prepared by the CFMU and agreed with all partners concerned during the planning phase. Published every day around 1600UTC, it is accessible via the NOP Portal and also promulgated via AFTN by means of the ANM and Network News messages. The ATFCM Network Daily Plan may be updated at any time according to the needs. The updates are issued by the CFMU Network Management Cell on duty during office hours 7 days/7. The map in this portlet displays with color codes the areas which are affected by an ATFCM Event or by a Network Headline News (meaning a significant ATFCM event) at the moment of publication. Note: The ATFCM Network Daily Plan uses the same Map component as the ATFCM Network Situation. please refer to that specific section (Section 6.10.4) to get detailed help, useful information and demo movies on the general Map features.

Opening a Detached View
Six links are grouped on the top pf the Portlet: Headline, Events, ACC's, NAT, Weather and Other:

Clicking on each of these shortcuts will open the same ATFCM Network Daily Plan Detached View - the difference being that the (sometimes very lengthy) document will be presented with the relevant section expanded and the other ones collapsed, to save screen space and facilitate the reading.

77

The above example results from a click on the NAT shortcut - see that all sections are collapsed except the NAT one.

Accessing the Map
Two buttons currently appear at the bottom of the Portlet, namely Beta and More.

The Beta button opens a Detached View (Section 6.10.3) displaying a map connected to the operational system, enabling to to extract operational information. This beta function will be available in dual mode with the former static map, available under the More button. This dual mode will be sustained until the release of CFMU14 (scheduled around may 2010), where the dynamic operational map will replace the static one for good. Using the More link opens the static Daily Plan (Section 6.12.1), while using the Beta link opens the new interactive Daily Plan (Section 6.12.2).

6.12.1 The Static Daily Plan

6.19.5 Compare with Predecessors

A Compare link is available at the bottom of each EAUP Detached View. It will however only be meaningful in case of a EUUP. Clicking on Compare will in effect open an overlay listing the Predecessors, allowing you to pick one of them for comparison purposes, in order to check the changes having occurred between the original EAUP and its updated EUUP version. Please note that an EUUP can in turn be updated by another EUUP - in which case both will be listed in the Compare overlay. The number of cumulative updates is presently limited to two.

CFMU E-conferences for Collaborative decision Making (CDM) are usually run using EUROCONTROL econferencing (previously known as CENTRA). The following e-conferences are accessible: Planning and Review of ATFCM Situation CDM Conferences Each day at 14.00/15.00 UTC (summer/winter) the CFMU briefs attendees on the current ATFCM situation in Europe and prospects for the following day based upon the plan CFMU has constructed that day. Daily Tactical Briefing Each day at 08.00/09.00 UTC (summer/winter) the CFMU provide an overview of the current ATFCM situation in Europe and give a prediction of developments up to 14.00/15.00 UTC (summer/winter). Seasonal CDM Conferences Seasonal CDM conferences are held during the summer (e.g. South-West Axis, etc.) and winter (e.g. Ski, etc.) seasons on a weekly basis. Any scenarios to be applied are decided through a CDM process and agreed by all concerned. Ad-hoc CDM Conferences Ad-hoc CDM conferences are organized whenever there is a need to discuss a course of action, in order to prepare and monitor events such as industrial actions, important sporting events, etc.

6.24 IFPUV
Typical Scope:

The IFPUV portlet gives access to the IFPS Validation system (IFPUV). It is aimed to allow Airspace Users and Aerodrome Reporting Offices to submit their flight plans to a dedicated test system for validation, prior to their submission to the operational system. It may also be used to find an IFPS compliant route. The tool delivers the shortest possible IFPS compliant routes taking into consideration some user defined constraints (e.g. via a point or airspace, avoiding a point or airspace). The IFPUV contains the current IFPS software and receives copies of updates to the operational environment database, fed by live updates. The IFPUV is therefore an accurate reflection of the operational system. The Free Text Editor and the Structured Editor both feature two tabs, one for FPL Validation and the other to Propose Routes. The FPL Validation mode is set as default for both the Free Text Editor and the Structured Editor. The main difference between the two editor modes resides in the way to enter the flight plan : one single text field for the Free Text Editor against a set of form elements ensuring data quality in the Structured Editor. Caution:
  

Flight plans submitted to IFPUV for pre-validation are not stored. Manual correction is not possible. The IFPUV response is automatic. Flight plan originators are reminded that flight plan messages must be submitted to the IFPS to ensure acceptance in the operational system. The routes that are proposed by IFPUV are not to be considered as ‘CFMU recommended routes’. IFPUV is NOT a flight planning system. The responsibility to ensure operational acceptance of the IFPUV proposed routes before filing to IFPS is with the flight plan originator.
