Trajectory Based Operations - Aircraft Arrival Mgt Sys (AAMS) / Enroute (PiS Metering)

Traffic Management Advisor (TMA) is a vital part of the National Airspace System (NAS) and enhances air traffic operations, by reducing delays and increasing efficiency of airline operations. Current TMA functionality, known as TMA - Segment I, is in daily use throughout the NAS. Sustaining the existing TMA system beyond April 2009 is necessary to encourage continued use of TMA data by the airlines. Expediting Enhancement of the existing TMA to create Time Based Flow Management (TBFM) - Segment II (TMA with mid-term NextGen enhancements), is necessary to support the end-state portfolio of NextGen enhancements, known as Integrated Enterprise Solution (IES) - Segment III.
