Ultra Electronics Airport Systems is pleased to announce the contract award for delivery of its UltraDB platform for Copenhagen Airports (CPH). The confirmation of contract award follows an intensive period of clarification, in which Ultra and CPH worked together to refine the technical and functional specifications of the requirements.

The new operational platform will replace the existing core operational traffic systems at CPH including the airport operational database (AODB) and GUI clients. The implementation of UltraDB requires the transition of data and services from existing systems and integration with CPH’s wider operational environment and airport community.

As part of its detailed evaluation CPH was looking for a solution provider with a proven implementation and support approach, a highly reliable COTS platform requiring a minimal level of customisation and capable of working as part of CPH’s service orientated architecture (SOA) environment using the latest open standards.

Ultra’s record in the delivery and implementation of UltraDB in the world’s largest and busiest airports, its extensive systems integration experience combined with UltraDB’s flexible data structure aligned to CPH’s operational requirements for ‘end-to-end’ turnaround visibility were key factors in Ultra’s selection.
