Adacel has been awarded a new contract by the Norwegian air navigation service provider (ANSP), Avinor, to modernise the air traffic management (ATM) system used for managing air traffic in the Bodø Oceanic Flight Information Region (OFIR).

Since April 2015, the Bodø Oceanic ATM System (BOAS) has been operational and is successfully managing the surging air traffic in the Bodø OFIR.

The BOAS also provides enhanced service to airspace users and offers interaction with adjacent ANSPs.

The OFIR ATM system upgrade will enable the use of ATM surveillance tracker and server (ARTAS) surveillance data by air traffic controllers.

"Integrating new sources of surveillance data is a typical example of how we support our customers in the evolution of their systems."

ARTAS merges data based on all available surveillance sources to highlight the most probable and correct aircraft position, while informing the air traffic controller of the reliability of that position.

Adacel chief operating officer Gary Pearson said: “We are pleased to support Avinor by upgrading the BOAS system.

“Integrating new sources of surveillance data is a typical example of how we support our customers in the evolution of their systems.”

BOAS is a development of Adacel's Aurora ATM system employed to control traffic across the oceanic airspaces, which are controlled by Fiji, French Guyana, Iceland, New Zealand, Portugal and the US.

The scalable Linux-based system helps address all operational requirements and features functionality including 4D profile protection, automated conflict detection, monitoring and control by exception, separation based on individual aircraft performance and equipage, dynamic airspace allocation, controller pilot data link communications (CPDLC), and automatic dependent surveillance contract and broadcast (ADS-C and ADS-B).

Aurora systems also supports approach and tower control.
