At the end of July, Brazilian system manufacturer Atech won the bid issued by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) to provide an air traffic flow management (ATFM) system. Atech and German air navigation service provider DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung are supplying the SkyFlow system on a worldwide partnership basis and the solution will be implemented within the next two and a half years.
In the project, DFS will contribute its in-depth experience in ATFM and support Atech during the system certification process, as well as assist in development of the safety case and operational training plans. For the implementation phase, Atech will also work together with Three D Integrated Solutions, an Indian systems engineering firm.
Skyflow integrates weather information with flight plan data from airlines, airports and air navigation service providers in a unified database. The system is specially designed to manage the strategic planning of scheduled flights, as well as the tactical control of daily operations.
The resulting common situational awareness of the relevant stakeholders assists in ensuring fuel savings and increasing flight punctuality. At the same time, the system also provides a platform for collaborative decision making.
