French air navigation service provider DNSA has awarded a contract to air transport IT specialist SITA for deploying SITA Safety Cube, its safety and compliance management tool.
Under the contract, SITA will equip five air route traffic control centres, 70 airports in mainland France and six overseas airports with its technology.
SITA said that its Safety Cube technology has been designed to enable proactive safety management, helping detect and minimise potential safety risks before incidents occur.
It links operational safety data with safety risk analysis and is claimed to support ‘more objective’ and ‘data-driven’ decisions for managing safety.
DSNA CEO Florian Guillermet said: “Flight safety is the primary mission of DSNA. Far from being a restriction, it is a driver of development.
“We have chosen SITA given their combined expertise in aviation safety and data management to help us improve our safety management system and implement the most proactive system possible.
“SITA Safety Cube allows us to put in place a strong collaborative and data-driven safety strategy where everyone can participate in making safety our top priority.”
Using centralised safety data, DSNA can identify and monitor risks associated with safety, including runway conflicts, as well as implement the essential controls to handle risks.
SITA for Aircraft CEO Yann Cabaret said: “We are honoured to partner with DSNA to maximise safety benefits.
“Beyond the ability to address the operational complexities faced by ANSPs today, we are proud to provide DSNA with a Cloud-based solution that meets the highest standards in digital security, confidentiality and data sovereignty.”
Earlier this week, SITA deployed its digital passenger processing technology at Geneva Airport in Switzerland to streamline operations.
The company has installed self-service touchpoints at the airport’s check-ins, bag drop points and security points to reduce wait times for passengers.
