ENAV, the air navigation service provider (ANSP) of Italy, has chosen US-based technology company Harris to enhance the efficiency of the country’s air traffic management (ATM) network.

Under the terms of the deal, Harris will implement its Osyris Extended Arrival Manager (E-AMAN) technology to enable the ANSP manage its flow of arriving aircraft by ensuring the best use of available ATM resources, such as runways and airspace.

The new solution will also help ENAV balance its traffic demand and optimise passenger traffic to and from Italy’s capacity-constrained airports, while facilitating collaborative management.

The Harris system will support some of the busiest airports of the country, such as Rome Fiumicino Airport and Milan Malpensa Airport, along with Italy’s four area control centres situated in Rome, Milan, Padua and Brindisi.

"The Osyris E-AMAN system helps air traffic controllers better manage cross-border arrivals and departures."

Harris Mission Networks vice-president and general manager Kelle Wendling said: “The Osyris E-AMAN system helps air traffic controllers better manage cross-border arrivals and departures.

“ENAV’s adoption of the Osyris E-AMAN system represents the fourth major implementation of the system in Europe and supports Harris’ overall strategy of becoming a global ATM technology provider.”
