The A-SMGCS is a modular system defined in the ICAO manual on advanced surface movement guidance and control systems. Such systems aim to maintain the declared surface movement rate under all weather conditions while maintaining the required level of safety. In this paper, we find out the details and 14 modules'specific features that developing Level IV A-SMGCS in Korea. Also we figure out relation domestic regulations as SMGCS manual & visual aids manual in Korea and research foreign cases such as defined ICAO 9830 manual, EUROCONTROL's project 'EMMA2' document, and FAA advisory circular-150 manual. It will be used as analysis data that can be applied to the undefined A-SMGCS in Korea technical regulation.
