New Specification for UAM PSU Interoperability

1. Scope

o Define interoperability protocols, APIs, and functional requirements for digital traffic management systems for Advanced Air Mobility (AAM)
? Maybe add some conops info for readers to know our target area
? Focus on Provider of Services for UAM (PSU) and its necessary functions and interfaces.
o Build upon the digital traffic management infrastructure established in the UTM Draft Standard and adapt to unique characteristics of the AAM domain:
? AAM-specific entities (e.g., constrained waypoints, volumes)
? Unique interfaces and integrations (e.g., Vertiports, Legacy ATM, UTM)
? Flight planning, coordination, and execution as per prevailing AAM CONOPS
? AAM-specific contingency events
• UAM Interoperability Performance Requirements Focus Areas:
o CONOPS and description of target operating environment(UML-2/3)
o General performance requirements supporting a safe and secure PSU interoperability network
o Operation Creation, Modification, Deletion
o Demand/Capacity Balancing
? Associated Operation Planning
? Prioritization Framework
o Resource Definition, Status, and Information Sharing
