It is recognized that to satisfy new requirements arising from the Global ATM Operational Concept, aeronautical information services (AIS) must transition to the broader concept of aeronautical information management (AIM).
The 36th Assembly recognized the need for an AIM strategy and concept in this respect, as it was also noted in the recommendations of the 2006 AIS Global Congress. A transition strategy is being developed to ensure the availability of real-time accredited and quality assured aeronautical information to any ATM user in a globally interoperable and fully digital environment.
The following tasks are carried out under the strategic objective "Efficiency":
- development of a strategic roadmap to support the transition from AIS to Aeronautical Information Management (AIM);
- development of appropriate presentation of aeronautical information to the end user, including electronic AIPs and charts;
- assurance of a uniform, global approach for the provision of aeronautical information through increased use of the Internet;
- increased implementation of the world geodetic system - 1984 (WGS 84), quality management systems, and electronic terrain and obstacle data.
