SECTORLINE Definition

Now we are going to define the different SECTORLINEs we will need in our area. We’ll make difference between internal and external SECTORLINEs. An internal SECTORLINE is a SECTORLINE located inside GMMM area. An external one is located on GMMM periphery and is adjacent with a neighboring FIR. So, on the picture below you can see how we defined all these SECTORLINEs.

Let’s now see how a SECTORLINE is defined, and take the example of the separation line between Casablanca Oceanic and Casablanca West.

SECTORLINE:GMMO_GMMW_SCL
DISPLAY:GMMM_O_CTR_SECT:GMMM_O_CTR_SECT:GMMM_W_CTR_SECT
DISPLAY:GMMM_W_CTR_SECT:GMMM_O_CTR_SECT:GMMM_W_CTR_SECT
COORD:N030.48.17.299:W014.13.33.264
COORD:N035.57.32.923:W009.39.27.732
  • The first line contains the name of the SECTORLINE. We had it the suffix _SCL to identify it immediately when reading.
  • The second line defines the conditions for this SECTORLINE to be displayed. Its general format is:
DISPLAY:param1:param2:param3

where all parameters are SECTORs and NOT identifiers from the POSITIONS section.

So the SECTORLINE will be displayed IF you are controlling param1 AND IF param2 AND param3 are controlled by two different controllers.

And in our case the GMMO_GMMW SECTORLINE will be displayed if you are controlling GMMM_O_SECT and GMMM_O_SECT and GMMM_W_SECT are controlled by two different controllers.

  • The third line is the other condition for this line to be displayed and follows the same logic. And since this SECTORLINE is a straight line, we only need two coordinate points to define it.
  • The fourth line contains the geographical coordinates of the separation point between GCCC4 and GCCC3 SECTORLINEs. This is the starting point of the SECTORLINE.
  • The fifth line contains the geographical coordinates of the separation point between LPPC2 and LPPC3 SECTORLINEs. This is the ending point of the SECTORLINE.

All SECTORLINEs follow the same rules, and are more or less complex according to their shape, so GMMO_GMMW is a simple one with only two coordinate points and we can also have a SECTORLINE like DAAA1 which is defined by 26 coordinate points.

All SECTORLINEs can be defined in any order.
