(N98) BASELINE PLANNING CRITERIA FOR DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL FACILITIES (ASHORE)
|Publication Date:||20 May 2014|
All echelons of commands with ATC facilities use enclosure (1) during development, review, and update of manpower authorizations. In-service engineering agents (ISEA) with the responsibility for the life-cycle support of ATC equipment use enclosure (1) during the design, renovation, modernization, or modification of various classes of DON ATC facilities. Enclosure (1) provides an engineering tool to determine type, quantity, configuration, and staffing of operating positions and corresponding equipment to support a specific ATC facilities mission. This enclosure should be used in conjunction with reference (c) during the design planning of DON ATC facilities ashore. Reference (d) provides policy and guidance for planning, programming, budgeting, and management of naval ATC, air navigation aids (NAVAID) and landing systems assets under the cognizance of the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations (OPNAV), Director, Naval Airspace and Air Traffic Control Standards and Evaluation Agency (N980A). Reference (e) describes the policies and procedures under which the Program Manager, Air, Naval Air Traffic Management Systems Program Office (PMA213) shall apply configuration management for all air NAVAIDs and landing systems. Reference (f) provides guidance for controller work hours, rest hours and work days further clarified in paragraph 220.127.116.11 of reference (a). Reference (g) provides the total force manpower policy. The formulas and variables used in this document are in compliance with the Navy standard workweek and standard productive workweek.
a. To provide standardized baseline planning criteria, including both staffing and equipment standards, for Department of the Navy (DON) air traffic control (ATC) facilities ashore.
b. This instruction is a complete revision and should be reviewed in its entirety. The most significant change is the addition of ATC staffing formulas in paragraph 5 of enclosure (1). The formulas identify the appropriate controller manning for the type facility, traffic demand, and workload complexity which enables each air station, air facility, or base to successfully execute their aviation mission.
