Task Status

This page is part of the ongoing SWIM communities of interest discussions. The content is working material. It should not be treated as final as it is still subject to review, comment and change.

This task will work on service categories in support of SWIM-SERV-009 Service categories. It will reflect the more flexible approach that will be adopted.

Published service category schemes

The current published service categories are at: https://reference.swim.aero/information-services/service-categories.html

Mature and can be published

No new schemes.

Météo-FranceMétéo-France is the French national meteorological service, an ISO 9001:2015-certified public sector body placed under the authority of the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, in charge of Transportation.

FMIFMI is the designated aeronautical meteorological service provider for Helsinki FIR as designated by the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Finland and as certified by Finnish Transport and Communications Agency.

European Organisation for Civil Aviation Equipment (EUROCAE)The European Organisation for Civil Aviation Equipment (EUROCAE) deals exclusively with aviation standardisation, for both airborne and ground systems and equipment. It was created in 1963 in Lucerne, Switzerland by a decision of the European Civil Aviation Conference as a European forum focusing on electronic equipment for air transport.

Royal Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy (BIRA)Since its creation in 1964, the main tasks of the Royal Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy (BIRA-IASB) are research and public service in the field of space aeronomy, which includes the study of the physics and chemistry of the atmospheres of the Earth and other planets, and of outer space.

4Information security category

This comes from the final version of the Information Service Overview fields  - see Information Service Overviews Handbook v1.1.

Service CategoryValueDefinition
Information security category
Categorisation of information and information systems based on the information security impact on safety risk analysis. Information service providers and consumers apply the performance-based information security requirements based on the category.

NoneNone.

BasicInformation security categories shall be reviewed every (2) years based on the latest risk analysis.

IntermediateInformation security categories shall be reviewed annually based on the latest risk analysis.

AdvancedInformation security categories shall be reviewed monthly based on the latest risk analysis.

AIRM subjects (the packages within the AIRM also have URIs

This was raised in the context of datasets but is applicable to information service payloads in general and, e.g. tools like semantic NOTAM in particular. At the moment the packages are not published but should be. An AIRM change request has been raised.

The following table is an extract to show the potential result.

Service CategoryValueDefinition
AIRM subject
Fields of specific knowledge.

AirspaceInfrastructureInformation about airspace volumes and infrastructure.

  • RouteAndProcedure
Information about the routes and procedures designed for channelling the flow of traffic en-route and while departing and landing.

BaseInfrastructureInformation about the identity, location, description, and configuration of the infrastructure assets including physical facilities and systems, and obstacles.

  • AerodromeInfrastructure
The aerodrome including any installations and equipment.
6More refined ATM Capability list

The EATMA Service Overview organises the services by ATM Capability.

The first level is reflected in CodeBusinessActivityType. It is possible to add more levels from the ATM Capability Model. The table below includes the second level. Definitions are taken from https://www.eatmportal.eu/working/data/capabilities.

Service CategoryValueDefinition

Aerodrome Operations



  • Information from/to Airport Landside Operations
The provision of information to/or reception of information from airport landside with which airport airside interacts.

  • Airport Situational Awareness Provision
The ability to know about the current state of airport facilities, traffic situation (vehicles, aircraft) and events at airport, and anticipate future changes and developments that may impact on aerodrome ATM operations.

  • Surface Guidance & Routing
The ability to provide guidance and routing to aircraft and other vehicles moving on the surface of an aerodrome.

Airspace Organisation and Management



  • Airspace Design
The ability to design airspace structures to accommodate the different types of air activity, volume of traffic, and differing levels of service and rules of conduct.
