Title: Military Special Use Airspace: Atlantic / Gulf of Mexico
Short Name: MilitarySpecialUseAirspaceAtlanticGulfofMexico
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2017-09-13
Abstract:

Military Special Use Airspace is airspace of defined dimensions identified by an area on the surface of the earth wherein activities must be confined because of their nature, and/or wherein limitations may be imposed upon aircraft operations that are not a part of those activities (FAA Order 7610.4K CHG 1, Section 1.3). Limitations may be imposed upon aircraft operations that are not a part of the airspace activities. Special use airspace includes any associated underlying surface and subsurface training areas. The types of SUA are Special Use Airspace (SUA), Alert Area, Controlled Firing Area, Military Operating Area (MOA), Special Operation Area (SOA), Prohibited Area, Restricted Area, Warning Area and Altitude Reservations (ALTRV). DoD Special Use Airspace (SUA) from the NGA Digital Aeronautical Flight Information File (DAFIF).

The MarineCadastre.gov team worked with the Navy to provide this data, which is a subset of the Navy's Common Operating Picture, for ocean planning purposes. This data was derived from the Navy Common Operating Picture data which was downloaded on August 11, 2017. Any questions about access to or the content of the data should be directed to the Navy at eims_usersupport@navy.mil.

This data is compliant with Spatial Data Standards for Facilities, Infrastructure, and Environment (SDSFIE) Version 2.6.

Purpose:

This data was created to assist Navy in decision making and for planning purposes.

Notes:

Supplemental Information:

This data was created by migrating COP Atlantic Gomex OPAREA Grid features and attributes into SThis data was created by migrating the COP Atlantic Gomex SUA(s) to the SDSFIE 2.6 mil_special_use_airspace_area feature class.

Features include AFTT_special_use_airspace (combined/ DAFIF SUA), Pincastle SUA, AC_air_grid, AU_warning_areas, BOS_altitude_reservations, CCV_warning_areas, CP_alert_areas, CP_MOA, CP_restrict_areas, JAX_altitude_reservations, NB_altitude_reservations, Vacapes_altitude_reservations, NB_SOA, NB_altitude_reservations, and Vacapes SOA features and attributes.

Installation_ID's were attributed with prefix value for operating area. E.g. JAX represents Jacksonville OPAREA. BOS represents Boston OPAREA.

All Primary Keys were attributed with unique values. Primary Keys contain suas_ident field values such as E.g. W107 (Warning Area) or R202 (Restricted Area).

Subtypes, feature name and feature description, and data source values were attributed when possible. The data source field contains the name of the data source used in creating the feature class.

DSFIE 2.6 Coordinate Grid Area feature class.

Installation_ID's were attributed with prefix value for operating area. E.g. JAX represents Jacksonville OPAREA. BOS represents Boston OPAREA.

All Primary Keys contain unique values. Primary Key was attributed by concatenating the Installation_ID prefix value with the Feat_Name or Feat_Description value.

Feature name and feature description, and data source values were attributed when possible.

The data source field contains the name of the data source used in creating the feature class.
