Abstract : AERA consists of a series of new or enhanced software functions which help the performance of en route air traffic control. Current planning calls for the AERA functions to be developed incrementally in a series of six separate packages. This document presents an overview of the AERA packages, with particular emphasis on the way the AERA functions interact with other ATC functions and with the controller. Functional descriptions of each package present the logical organization of the AERA functions, including the role of each function and the interfaces between functions. The operational descriptions discuss how the AERA functions will be used by the controller: when the function is invoked, what information is exchanged between the function and the controller, and how the controller is expected to respond.
