System Operations Services

System Operations Services (or SysOps) provides a broad range of operational services as part of the Air Traffic Organization (ATO). All national air traffic flow management initiatives are provided by SysOps along with policy and concept development for our new airport surface flow management programs. We are the focal for stakeholder interaction through formal Collaborative Decision Making venues and serve as FAA's Customer Advocate. We provide all national flight service functions and operational oversight to all National Airspace System (NAS) security issues. We provide the ATO with system performance analysis, trending and forecasting and we manage the FAA's data policy and orders. Therefore, if there are planned or unplanned impacts on the NAS we can deliver the critical operational benefits to keep it functioning efficiently and safely.
