TFDM Implementation Map and Timeline

TFDM Implementation

TFDM capabilities will be implemented incrementally in a phased approach throughout the life of the program beginning in 2022. The TFDM System will be deployed to a subset of National Airspace System (NAS) Air Traffic Control Towers (ATCTs). ATCTs will receive TFDM capabilities based on operational needs and the impact of installation and deployment on the NAS. Other FAA facilities will also have access to the TFDM Surface Situational Awareness (SSA) data, including Terminal Radar Approach Control Facilities (TRACONS), Air Route Traffic Control Centers (ARTCCs), and the Air Traffic Control System Command Center (ATCSCC).

TFDM provides two configurations that consist of different levels of TFDM capabilities which can be achieved by turning functions on and off through adaptation.

Configuration A: Full Functionality (27 Sites: Large, high density airports)

  • Improved Electronic Flight Data (EFD) exchange and electronic flight strips in towers
  • Surface surveillance data integration
  • Full Decision Support Tools (DSTs), including surface scheduling/metering
  • Traffic Flow Management (TFM) data exchange and integration
  • SSA on TFMS Traffic Management Unit (TMU) displays in the TRACON, ARTCC, and ATCSCC

Configuration B: Improved EFD and Electronic Flight Strips (22 Sites)

  • Improved EFD exchange and electronic flight strips in towers
  • Limited SSA capability on TFMS TMU displays (only airports with surface surveillance)
  • Scheduling Capability

The below map shows which configuration will be installed at the 49 sites and the below table shows when each airport will be receiving TFDM.

 

These dates are as of October 2022 and include COVID-19 impacts to the program deployment schedule.
