Consultation is an active process built upon the formal and informal communication needs of every stakeholder.

At ATS, we enact consultation with your business by assessing your needs and defining how to approach a system development or upgrade.

What is consultation? For us, consultation serves three main purposes for achieving an effective start to a successful relationship with our clients.

First, it provides a space for stakeholders to communicate to us what their values are and their expectations for us in helping them enact their values. Stakeholders can also use this opportunity to share with us any value they want to develop as a result of working with us and implementing a new system.

Second, stakeholders can share their experiences of past collaborative efforts as a basis for establishing expectations for service delivery. This aspect communicates to us what stakeholders expect to gain by way of example. This minimises assumptions, errors, and misinterpretations through practical examples of expectations.

The third purpose of consultation is to prevent miscommunication at the onset, paving a smooth path for an effective and productive business relationship that puts you in the driver’s seat and marks your goals as the destination. Then, we can begin developing strategic and operational plans for your system.

Once we’ve addressed the communication requirements of all stakeholders, assessing your air traffic management needs is the next on the agenda. Interpreting your business requirements is an essential component of our service delivery and occurs in conjunction with an analysis of your existing processes and systems before development or application. But beyond that necessary step is a comparative analysis of your system requirements against industry standards and a set of ideal procedures developed by air traffic veterans.

These steps help us develop an enhanced standard of delivery, rather than merely accepting the given one and working to meet that protocol. This component uses a set of practical strategies founded on an integrated analysis of current industry research and environmental impact studies. Then we can apply a fully integrated needs profile into your system requirements.

We also provide assistance with airspace design to help reduce airspace fragmentation, minimise the operational costs of your business, and lessen the environmental impact created by aviation activities. We can assist with the calculation of aerodrome obstacle safeguarding and instrument flight procedure development and advice (under the umbrella on a CASA Part 173 MOS certified provider).

In addition, we provide services supporting flight path segregation and deconfliction, heliport obstacle safeguarding, including approach and departure path planning, and One Engine Inoperative departure path planning.
