Frequentis Enters Alliance with Jeppesen for Data-centric Software

Following extensive testing, Jeppesen and the Frequentis Group have formed a strategic partnership to further develop the Jeppsen database and follow aeronautical AIXM data standards.

The alliance will also provide a stronger data infrastructure to support Jeppesen’s growing portfolio. Jeppesen is a subsidiary of the Boeing Company.

During the testing period, both companies focused on combining their operational and technical expertise to ensure maximum effectiveness of the future Jeppesen database solutions.

Jeppesen is the world’s largest aeronautical information service provider with the leading range of highly accurate aeronautical data products, helping worldwide aviation professionals to safely reach their destinations for over 80 years.

Today, Jeppesen builds on those roots by offering an ever-expanding array of innovative informational products, services and solutions, relied on every day by pilots from around the world.

Jeppesen updates more than 650,000 data sets and 7,500 charts with every AIRAC cycle in support of the provision of most accurate, current and timely aviation information.

“Frequentis will be a key partner for our future because of the company’s 70-year legacy of technology support, its deep commitment to air safety and innovation for the aviation community,” said Thomas Wede, senior vice president transformation solutions, Boeing Digital Aviation & Analytics/Jeppesen.

“Our collaboration with Frequentis will generate more efficient and seamless information solutions for our customers and enable leading innovation and for the next decade and beyond,” Wede added.

The flexible, comprehensive and technologically advanced AIXM-based aeronautical information management suite from Frequentis and Comsoft Solutions is the leading capability in handling Jeppesen’s current and future services and solutions.

“We are extremely proud of this important partnership and close collaboration with Jeppesen. This strategic initiative is a testament to the fact that the standardisation of aeronautical data has reached a maturity that yields advantages in terms of efficiency and information depth along the digital data chain, not only for a highly innovative company like Jeppesen but ultimately for the entire aeronautical domain,” adds Joachim Lennarz, Director Information solutions Frequentis.

The first deployment phase of the project was initiated when Jeppesen and Frequentis signed the contracts for the delivery and further extension of the AIXM 5.1 AIM system suite, which includes the CADAS database from Frequentis subsidiary Comsoft Solutions, the smartWFM workflow management and the smartCharting system.

Frequentis ATM-grade networks to the air traffic control industry achieve safe, efficient, future-ready air traffic control communications.
