Support services for airport management teams
Cyrrus recognises the many issues management face at today’s modern airports and aims to resolve these problems. Challenges include changes in legislation, growing passenger and cargo numbers, updating and installing new infrastructure and buildings. The team aim to help address these issues, minimising stress and disruption, while maximising return on investment.
Supporting airport developers
Cyrrus assists developers within the aviation industry. The team also work closely with organisations that deliver services, technology and construction projects on or around airport operations. Many years of experience enables Cyrrus to understand the impact that new developments may have on the safety or operations nearby airports or aviation.
Cyrrus has supported developers worldwide in solving technical complexities that can make successful delivery to airports so challenging. The team can attend key stakeholder meetings with you to ensure you are well-represented.
Cyrrus provides full airport development solutions to maximise potential. It is essential that airports constantly develop and expand in a controlled and sustainable way in order to meet increasing traffic demand. Cyrrus’ expertise plays a vital role in ensuring optimisation of development potential in airports. This can be achieved through increasing efficiency in using existing assets and infrastructure, or by benefitting from new developments and technology through replacement and upgrade.
Cyrrus uses the best industry practices to determine highly accurate safety requirements for operations, users, safety and technical specifications to minimise project risks and optimise benefits. Throughout these processes, full consideration is given to potential commercial impacts.
Through innovation and expertise, Cyrrus has successfully facilitated development at airports that includes maximising airport safety, runway optimisation and capacity, refining the provision of air navigation services and assisted in airport planning, aeronautical ground lighting, procurement and project management.
Airspace design solutions
Cyrrus provides airspace design solutions and air traffic management support.
Despite challenging economic conditions, airports have experienced a significant increase in air transport movements. This requires operational systems, noise compliant routings and navigational technologies, such as the use of global navigation satellite systems, as well as the integration of arrival and departure procedures into air traffic control en-route networks.
Cyrrus is accredited by the UK Civil Aviation Authority and Irish Aviation Authority as a designer of instrument flight procedure. Designs of new instrument flight procedures can be produced that are based on standard and satellite-based navigation, complying with safeguarding requirements under a controlled, quality assured regulatory-approved process. This also involves review and optimisation of existing flight procedures for efficiency and to potentially reduce environmental impact.
Airspace is a finite resource that has to support many different users including commercial, military, general aviation and leisure aircraft. Cyrrus has proven industry experience in researching and developing highly advanced proposals for airspace changes, from the initial idea through to delivery and implementation.
Cyrrus covers a range of areas when undergoing an airspace change proposal project, including procedure design, airspace design, consultation and optimisation.
Safeguarding solutions for airports and developers
Development in the vicinity of airports must be controlled to make sure that the safety and effectiveness of airports is not compromised. It is essential that any proposed developments are assessed to ensure there are no impacts on safety of aircraft or airport activities.
Cyrrus uses sophisticated software to simulate instrument landing systems, very high-frequency omni-directional range installations, measuring equipment for distances and radar performance.
The resulting modelling enables a fully informed assessment to be performed when evaluating potential development. Cyrrus can also propose a range of suitable mitigations to allow maximum development without compromising aviation safety and efficiency.
3D computer modelling of the obstacle environment is used to assess the effect of proposed developments on Obstacle Limitation Services and Instrument Flight Procedures. In addition, Cyrrus develops customised safeguarding criteria, as well as maps for airports and operators. User-friendly and easy-to-understand solutions are provided through advanced graphics.
Having provided safeguarding services to airports, developers and Air Navigation Service Providers within Europe, the Middle East and Asia, Cyrrus offers a complete safeguarding solution, covering obstacle assessment, windfarm assessment, glint and glare, and communications, navigation and surveillance systems.
Technology provider for aviation communications, navigation and surveillance
A critical part of the management air traffic is having effective systems in-place for communications, navigation and surveillance. Cyrrus’s team have many years of experience including civil and military air traffic controllers, air traffic engineers and project managers from domestic and international airports so understand the range of requirements at today’s modern airport.
Across each project, Cyrrus uses industry-recognised systems and engineering processes to deliver optimal results
Fit-for-purpose, safe and cost-effective to ensure they meet the operational requirements in a timely manner.
Cyrrus has patented radar data processing systems to address windfarm interference to Primary Surveillance Radar, radar performance monitoring and Mode-S code conflict detection.
The team has successfully completed major air traffic management and communications, navigation and surveillance projects around the world and concentrate on planning and compliance, system design, training, test and commission, requirements capture and procurement.
All Cyrrus solutions are cost-effective, efficient and future-proof, delivered on time and within budget. Cyrrus strives to advise airports and developers effectively, deliver excellence in results and act as a true partner throughout the process.
