Short Term ATFCM Measures (STAM) validation exercise
About the exercise
STAM Measures were applied to minor ATM events such as ground delays, flight level capping and re-routings can reduce the complexity of traffic peaks, easing the overall flow of traffic. The trial was part of the Demand Capacity Balancing (dDCB) initiative, which used collaborative decision making to maintain the balance between user demand and available capacity. The validation exercise included London, Reims and Maastricht along with 11 airlines and the Network Manager.
The nine STAM measures that were applied reduced the initial regulation delay (of 810 minutes) to 99 minutes.
