Implementation Plan It provides for the FAA in house follow on effort to. operationally implement FDIO at the field sites AAP 310 will continue to. perform Project Management and all FAA follow on efforts will be conducted. according to this order Since the FDIO System has been contractually. delivered by the development contractor and accepted by the FAA the FAA is. fully responsible for the operational commissioning of this system. 2 DISTRIBUTION This order is distributed to the division level in the. Automation System Maintenance Program Engineering System Engineering. Acquisition and Materiel Air Traffic Operations and Air Traffic Plans and. Requirements Services and to the division level at the FAA Technical Center. to the division level at the FAA Aeronautical Center to the regional Air. Traffic and Airway Facilities Divisions and to the Airway Facilities Centers. and Airport Traffic Control Towers Air Route Traffic Control Centers. 3 BACKGROUND, a The FDIO system was initially scheduled to be operational by June.
1987 as described in the original Flight Data Input Output System Program. plan distributed in May 1986, b FAA decisions to delay full implementation of FDIO until the Post Host. Computer System timeframe fragmented and nullified many provisions of the. original plan and required the installation of interim systems to replace the. maintenance intensive flight strip printers in the field Full commissioning. is now planned to be done in stages between mid 1988 and early 1989 The full. system requirement is based on a need for meeting remote site tower. requirements which cannot be met by the interim system Also the interim. system was not designed to standards which support longer term use. c FDIO system equipment has been delivered to all ARTCCs ATCTs and. military warehouses the FAA academy and Depot and the FAA Technical Center. In most cases this equipment has been tested and stored awaiting the. necessary central computer Host Computer System or HCS software and. necessary changes to the FDIO firmware to allow operational use. d The Air Traffic operational software modified for FDIO is scheduled to. be released in March 1988 which will permit the final integration and testing. of FDIO leading to ORD of the full system starting in May 1988. 4 AUTHORITY TO CHANGE THIS ORDER The order may only be changed by the FDIO. Program Manager En Route Automation Branch AAP 310. 5 19 RESERVED,Par 1 Page 1 thru 8,1 29 88 6470 35,CHAPTER 2 PROJECT OVERVIEW. 20 SYNOPSIS This plan provides for the events leading to a final transition. to FDIO Additionally separate appendixes describe the interim systems. developed to allow early use of FDIO peripheral equipment in the operational. facilities, 21 PURPOSE This order is issued to replace the original FDIO Program Plan. which showed the FDIO as completed and commissioned shortly following FAA. system acceptance from the contractor This order provides for FAA in house. follow on effort to operationally implement the FDIO system. 22 HISTORY See Chapter 1 para 3 Background,23 29 RESERVED.

30 FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION The system which will replace the existing FDEP. and FSP systems will duplicate all of the functions of the present systems. while providing extended capabilities A discussion of these functions. follows Flight strips will be displayed as they are on the present system. In addition a display compose cathode ray tube CRT unit will be included. The CRT capability will be included as a function at all terminal sites A. replacement alphanumeric keyboard RANK shall provide for data entry as in. the current system The replacement system will use central control units. CCU at each central computer complex CCC and remote control units RCU at. each remote site The CCU will provide an interface with the CCC via a. general purpose input general purpose output GPI GPO adapter pair and will. drive up to 28 high speed 2400 bits per second lines each of which will be. connected to one RCU The RCU has capability to control local functions for. up to five replacement alphanumeric keyboards five CRT and ten replacement. FSP RFSP The implementation configuration will be adapted in software to. support only three RFSPs two CRTs and two replacement keyboards The printer. control unit PCU located at the CCC will interface a GPI GPO pair to up to. 28 RFSP The system is designed so that there is no single point of failure. within an ARTCC Figure 3 1 System Functional Block Diagram represents the. overall diagram of the FDIO system as it relates to the Peripheral Adapter. 31 PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION,a Central Control Unit CCU. 1 The CCU uses microprocessor technology Performance. specifications are as follows, a Provides parallel serial and EBCDIC ASCII conversion. b Provides multiplexing demultiplexing for up to 28. high speed lines each of which may be connected to one or more terminals. c Provides data error detection retransmission of data. to from the RCU, d Provides local buffering of incoming and outgoing messages. e Operates on the critical power bus where available. f Operates on off line self diagnosis,g Provides secondary maintenance output channel. h Provides switching for input output I O lines for main. and standby unit, 2 Figure 3 2 CCU PCU Cabinet Configuration depicts the planned.
