The present document is applicable to the Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) Surveillance Service. This system provides enhanced surveillance functionalities, as well as a display to controllers with accurate and unambiguous identity and position information for mobiles on the entire manoeuvring and movement area.
The present document provides a European Standard for manufacturers, Air Navigation Service Providers and/or Airport Operators, who have to demonstrate and declare compliance of their systems and constituents to the Essential Requirements (ERs) of Annex VIII of Regulation EU 2018/1139.
NOTE 1: The ERs in Annex VIII of Regulation EU 2018/1139 covered by the present document are outlined in Table A.1.
NOTE 2: Although the ERs of the SES Interoperability Regulation have been repealed with effect from 11 September 2018, a mapping of the requirements for the A-SMGCS Surveillance Service to this same regulation is provided in Annex B.
Any software elements related to the software assurance level of an A-SMGCS are out of scope of the present document. As such the ERs of Regulation EU 2018/1139 are not considered for software elements within the present document.
The present document does not give presumption of conformity related to the maintenance requirements, environmental constraints, procedure level, effect of harmful interference and civil/military coordination.
NOTE 3: For these ERs, the Air Navigation Service Provider will need to provide supplementary compliance within their Interoperability Technical Files.
The present document does not give presumption of conformity to any current interoperability Implementing Rules (IRs).
NOTE 4: Currently there are no relevant Implementing Rules for A-SMGCS.
Requirements in the present document which refer to "should" statements or recommendations in the normatively referenced material (clause 2.1) are to be interpreted as fully normative ("shall") for the purpose of compliance with the present document if they are unambiguously referred to from the present document.
The reference to particular requirements is done either by citing the unambiguous requirement number or range of numbers (e.g. "[REQ 30.] to [REQ 35.]") or, if no requirement numbers are available, by indicating the paragraph and clause of the reference material where the requirement can be found.
NOTE 5: Other requirements and other EU Regulations and/or Directives may be applicable to the product(s) falling within the scope of the present document.
