Aeronautical Common Services (ACS)
The ACS provides access to integrated Aeronautical Information (AI) in Aeronautical Information Exchange Model (AIXM) 5.1
- The ACS ingests and integrates multiple aeronautical data
- Makes integrated AI available via Web Services (WS) that consuming systems will have access to through System Wide Information Management (SWIM)
The consolidation and distribution by the ACS of these AI from separate NAS systems offers users a single integrated data feed under a common AIXM format
ACS Web Services
ACS Data Subscription Service - A system-to-system interface that allows ACS users to subscribe to updates to different groups of AI features types. The ACS publishes to messages containing changes to AI features that meet users’ subscriptions to their pullpoint queue that the users then retrieve. The AI provided to the ACS Data Subscription Service subscribers is in AIXM 5.1 format.
ACS Web Feature Service - A system-to-system interface that provides ACS users the ability to query for aeronautical information (AI) features using customized queries adhering to the Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) WFS standard. The AI features returned by the ACS WFS are in Aeronautical Information Exchange Model (AIXM) 5.1 format.
ACS Data Query Service - A system-to-system interface that provides a set of predefined AI queries for ACS users. These operations include, querying for AI within a given radius, along a specified flight path, or related to a specific NOTAM. The AI returned by the ACS Data Query Service is in AIXM 5.1 format.
