The CND AIS database system is designed to accept ICAO standard NOTAM, OPMET Reports and Flight Plans direct from the AFTN, or via an Operator screen, and catalog in the AIS database. All received reports are verified on entry for correct format and split into separate data fields for speed of retrieval. Local NOTAM can be set to auto number within a designated NOTAM series.

Each separate AIS database is accessed via a Tab at the top of the display. Within a database, the main functions, selected by the top line buttons, are:

Sends a new or corrected NOTAM to the NOTAM input queue for decoding and saving to the Database
Display and search the full NOTAM,OPMET or FPL database, including cancelled and expired reports using multi-field and full text search options.
Presents and identifies errors in any newly received report from the AFTN. Provides the operator with the opportunity to correct and insert the new NOTAM, OPMET or FPL's into the Database
Provides a preformatted screens for NOTAM,OPMET, Flight Plans and Repetitive Flight Plan entry. (See NOTAM Entry screen Below)
Display, Search or update the main Reference database table. This table holds all ICAO and IATA codes, NOTAM codes (Q Code) etc.
Display, Search or update the Bulletin database table. This table holds detail of NOTAM and OPMET bulletins that are used repetitively and can be executed by a ‘short cut’ method
A window to the Query Table in the database which holds the Query expression used to extract matching NOTAM from the NOTAM table. From this window the supervisor can construct new standard query types and assign ‘short cut’ names. Used in conjunction with the Bulletin table for the generation of bulletins on demand
Provides a time schedule screen for automatic execution of both NOTAM and OPMET bulletins and the generation of Standard Flight Plans from stored Repetitive Flight Plan data. (See example RPL Schedule screen Below)





NOTAM bulletins are generated on demand from the receipt of a Bulletin request message from the AFTN or by the operator double clicking the appropriate entry from the Bulletin Table (see below). The stored query assigned to the bulletin is executed and the output mapped into an, ASCII, Rich Text or HTML format template for dispatch to either the requestors AFTN address, and override address, Supervisor screen, local printer or disk file.

The installation has full control over the format of Bulletin Requests by use of a Template file to decode the AFTN message request into the data fields necessary for query execution.



Both NOTAM and OPMET Bulletins can be scheduled for specific times of day, and days of the week, to automatically dispatch to the AFTN or AIS Printer, routine bulletins containing the current NOTAM and OPMET data. The time schedule is also used to create standard ICAO flight plans from the basic data, stored as a Repetitive Flight Plan, for dispatch 1 hour before a flight departure.
