We adopt a layered approach to autonomic systems to simplify the specification, implementation and evaluation of self- * behaviours. Autonomy is rendered in two dimensions and interfaces suitable for tool based development are incorporated. To exemplify our approach we present an emergent solution for airspace management. This is representative of many problems in which local neighbour interactions can be utilised to give stable and robust global behaviour. 1
