Iceland’s air navigation services provider Isavia will begin using DIVOS 3 recording software at the country’s Reykjavik and Keflavik control centres.

Produced by Austrian communications company Frequentis, the program records and monitors a range of voice and data media. It is accessed through browsers and stores data in a private cloud, making it one of the more versatile and secure recording systems available, according to Frequentis. The program can provide a synchronised playback of recordings, reconstruct events based on data collected from across the country, and provides a customisable user interface for users.

DIVOS 3 also conforms to Asynchronous Transfer Mode complaint interface ED317, and the ED109 guidelines for technical quality in civil aviation equipment.

“Having the latest version of the DIVOS, compliant to EUROCAE ED-137, installed in our three main locations: Reykjavik, Keflavik and Reykjavik OCA [Oceanic Control Area] is ensuring our investigators and engineers a high level of flexibility,” said Teodor Simiganoschi, project manager at Isavia.

“Isavia’s DIVOS virtual environment implementation speeds up the deployment process and separates the software platform from hardware dependencies. For us it was important that our operations and our facilities remain at the forefront of technology, in order to manage our large air space and transatlantic gateway.”

The software builds on the installation of the Frequentis IP Voice Communication system in 2014, and makes Iceland the 50th country to use the DIVOS software.

“We are extremely proud of the long-term partnership with Isavia and for their leading role in utilising the new standard ED-137 VoIP,” said Hannu Juurakko, vice president of air traffic management at Frequentis.

“Isavia manages an important transatlantic gateway and their forward-thinking attitude to technology and communication ensures they are fully prepared for the current and future demands of the airspace.”
