With 25 years of experience in the ATC domain, COMSOFT are passionate about forward-thinking surveillance and communication infrastructures that ease the efforts of our customers, helping them to cope with the increasing demands of their respective skies.

We recognise growing traffic numbers and the economic obligations of our customers and are motivated to provide the answers.
We have a portfolio of successful projects that show we are at the forefront of aviation solutions, adapting our expertise to the needs of our users.

From the market-leading AIDA-NG message handling system, AIM solutions fully in line with the ICAO roadmap AIS to AIM, to innovative ADS-B and Multilateration surveillance and integrated ATM automation solutions, we ensure we remain dedicated to the future of air traffic management.

Quadrant ADS-B sensor with multilateration

Quadrant is COMSOFT's response to growing demands from the aviation industry, pressured by lowering investment budgets and increasing safety demands.

Quadrant is an expandable, modular solution providing independent, genuine 3D, position measurement using multilateration techniques, by means of multiple ground stations reporting over conventional communication links. Advanced algorithms precisely calculate aircraft positions, which are typically updated much more frequently than conventional radar.

AMHS solution: Aeronautical Integrated Data Exchange Agent - Next-generation (AIDA-NG)

AIDA-NG is COMSOFT's aeronautical message handling system based on the EATM Communication Gateway (ECG) software, which was developed on behalf of EUROCONTROL in 2002 in order to bring uniformity to ground data networks.

COMSOFT has designed AIDA-NG in close cooperation with leading air navigation service providers in order to meet their most challenging demands.

COMSOFT's leading message handling system AIDA-NG offers a highly versatile communication gateway integrating AFTN / CIDIN, SITA and AMHS technologies on one single platform. These services are ideally complemented by COMSOFT's aeronautical e-services products.

AIM solution: COMSOFT Aeronautical Data Access System (CADAS)

COMSOFT AIM is the next-generation solution for aeronautical information services. The advanced solution is fully in line with the ICAO Roadmap for the transition from AIS to AIM and complies with the ADQ Implementing Rule (Regulation (EC) 73/2010). COMSOFT AIM offers wide-ranging functionality for integrated aeronautical information management.

The backbone of the COMSOFT AIM solution is its central Aeronautical database CADAS-AIMDB, a fully featured AIXM 5 database that implements the temporality model as defined in version 5 of AIXM. It is designed to serve as a base for integrating AIM applications and components such as electronic AIP, charting, procedure design, NOTAM Office or briefing.

CADAS-IMS (COMSOFT's Aeronautical data access system - information management and services) is a sophisticated and highly customisable service integration platform for modern AIS applications. Plug-in modules such as NOTAM and OPMET databases allow to individually customise each implementation according to the customer's need. Configurable program workflows and filters guarantee the highest possible degree of adaptability.

ATM automation systems

Integrated ATM automation holds the answer to a more proficient use of airspace, by enabling proactive solutions, predictive situational awareness and the optimisation of arrival times.

PRISMA is an advanced and powerful solution for ATC automation. Composed of highly sophisticated modules with outstanding performance and functionality COMSOFT offers a modern ATC system for area control centres, approach units and tower control which easily adapts to any operational environment, including tower, en-route control and approach services.

Optional components such as a powerful set of safety nets and the attentive supporters of air traffic controllers add to its potential.
The consistent and coordinated sharing of information is increasingly possible with an integrated and automated approach.

Surveillance Data Distribution System - Next-Generation (SDDS-NG)

SDDS-NG facilitates a uniform connection of surveillance sensors, using the ASTERIX standard, continuing the extensive success of RMCDE, and supports full integration and interoperability with the European Radar Data Network (RADNET) and makes it fit for the next generation, directly incorporating legacy serial interfaces, communication protocols and data formats, still in use around the world - distinct features proven to be unique to SDDS-NG from COMSOFT.

As a turnkey supplier of SDDS-NG, COMSOFT provides its customers with the ability to operate legacy formats and equipment for as long as they need to.
