This version supports:

•  The content of the individual ATS message fields described in ICAO Doc 4444

•  The new flight data items identified by ICAO ATMRPP as part of the requirements for FF-ICE Block 1 (based on working paper ref. ATMRPP-WG/31-WP/713 "Manual on FF-ICE Implementation Guidance").

Compared with the previous version, this release:

•  Retains only the pieces of flight information that are traceable to ICAO requirements (Doc 4444 and draft FF-ICE Block 1 requirements). This implies that some capabilities previously enabled by FIXM v3.0.1 are no longer supported.

•  Incorporates a new messaging package for enabling the creation of the FF-ICE Block 1 messages as described by ICAO ATMRPP.

•  Implements improved route and 4DT structures in line with FF-ICE Block 1 requirements.

•  Achieves greater alignment with ISO standards (e.g. ISO 19103) and AIXM 5.1.
