2-1-4. DOMESTIC NOTICES AND INTERNATIONAL NOTICES

a. The International Notices are divided into two sections:

1. Section 1: Flight Prohibitions, Potentially Hostile Situations, and Foreign Notices.

2. Section 2: International Oceanic Airspace Notices.

b. The Domestic Notices are divided into the following:

1. General Notices.

2. Special Operations Notices.

3. Airport and Facility Notices.

4. Major Sporting and Entertainment Event Notices and other Notices.

5. Airshow Notices.

NOTE-

Domestic Notices and International Notices are submitted to and processed through Mission Support Services, Policy, Publications and Administration via 9-ATOR-HQ-PubGrp@faa.gov. Cutoff dates and requirements for Domestic notices are found at https://www.faa.gov/air_traffic/publications/domesticnotices/. For International Notices refer to https://www.faa.gov/air_traffic/publications/internationalnotices/.

3-1-2. FDC PRESIDENTIAL, SPECIAL SECURITY INSTRUCTIONS, OR EMERGENCY AIR TRAFFIC RULES TFRs

b. Upon receipt of these messages, the watch supervisor at the designated flight service station must ensure that the NOTAM is received at each of the remaining facilities. The designated facility must send notification within 15 minutes by receipt message to “KDZZNAXX.” The receipt message must include:

1. R or RGR.

2. The FDC number, including the letters FDC.

3. The initials of the watch supervisor.

NOTE-

Only the designated facility needs to acknowledge the NOTAM. For automation processing, the receipt message must adhere to the following format: R FDC Y/1234 XX

c. The USNOF must make a record of all receipt messages received.

d. If no receipt message is received by the USNOF within 90 minutes of issuance of the FDC Presidential, Special Security Instructions, or Emergency Air Traffic Rules NOTAM, the USNOF will follow-up with a phone call to the facility watch supervisor.

e. The watch supervisor of the designated flight service station must be responsible for:

1. Logging the Presidential, Special Security Instructions, or Emergency Air Traffic Rules FDC NOTAM in the facility log.

2. Notifying the specialists on duty that a Presidential, Special Security Instructions, or Emergency Air Traffic Rules FDC NOTAM has been issued.

3. Putting the Presidential, Special Security Instructions, or Emergency Air Traffic Rules FDC NOTAM in the facility status information area.

4. As part of the FSS supervisor's watch checklist, the watch supervisor must check the FDC list that is issued by the USNOF to ensure that every Presidential, Special Security Instructions, or Emergency Air Traffic Rules FDC NOTAM has been received in the facility.

NOTE-

The purpose of this procedure is to ensure that:
1. All flight service specialists know about the Presidential, Special Security Instructions, or Emergency Air Traffic Rules TFRs so that pilots are briefed appropriately.
2. All affected air traffic facilities receive immediate notification when these TFRs are issued.

3-1-3. MILITARY NOTAMs

The NS transmits a list of FDC NOTAM numbers issued during the previous 24 hours. The NS transmits the list between 1715 and 1745 UTC.

a. Military Functions

1. MILITARY FACILITIES
NOTAMs pertaining to U.S. Air Force, Army, and Navy navigational aids that are part of the NAS must be disseminated.

2. SUBMISSION OF MILITARY DATA FOR PUBLICATION
Military aeronautical data affecting FAA publications must be submitted to the FAA through the responsible military authority.

3. MILITARY NOTAMs
Department of Defense (DOD) NOTAMs are stored in the FAA NOTAM database. Most of these facilities are assigned to a tie-in FSS for NOTAM purposes.

NOTE-

Some Army airfields are not assigned to a tie-in FSS. Army aeronautical data and NOTAMs are not necessarily published in FAA publications. Publication of NOTAM data in the DOD FLIP is justification for NOTAM cancellation.

4. ALASKAN MILITARY NOTAMs
Select Alaskan military facility NOTAMs may be disseminated in the FAA NOTAM system via the tie-in FSS. The military base operations must transmit NOTAM data into the Department of Defense Aeronautical Information Portal (DAIP) and, at a minimum, coordinate with tie-in FSS.

5. MILITARY NOTAM AVAILABILITY

(a) All military NOTAMs are stored in the NS data base. While current, they may be retrieved by both AFTN subscribers and FAA facilities via request/reply.

(b) Refer to the DOD Flight Information Publication (EN Route), IFR, or VFR Supplements to determine whether NOTAM service is provided for a facility.

(c) Military NOTAMs are entered in the military system using the following NOTAM format:

EXAMPLE-

281131 KLTS
NOTAMN M0719/ YY
Q) ZFW/QMXLC/IV/NBO/A/000/999/3439N09916W005
A) KLTS
B) YY 08071256
C) YY 10302359
E) TWY C BTN TWY G AND TWY B CLSD

NOTE-

Refer to ICAO 8126 for international NOTAM (Q) codes. The DOD may supplement ICAO NOTAM (Q) codes based on military necessity.

5-3-8. SATELLITE BASED SYSTEMS

Use standard request/reply procedures to obtain all current GPS NOTAMs.
