E-IDS En-Route Survey
NATCA recommends participation in this survey. 

MITRE has finished creating the E-IDS En-Route survey. The En-Route version of the survey mirrors the previously approved Tower and TRACON surveys, with one exception. We have many different tools in the center environment (ERAM, ESIS, SIA, etc.) that allow us to view some of the information that the Towers and TRACONs view on their IDSs (airspace, airport flows, etc.). To ensure that this difference is allowed for, the survey has been modified. It now allows an individual to choose an option that indicates that the information is currently displayed using another system and that system is preferred. This will then be further discussed between SMEs and MITRE during the subsequent focus groups and demos.

The survey is being sent to all ARTCCs to capture the different uses across the NAS, and it is scheduled to be sent on Aug 28th.
