Air traffic management (ATM) software provider Barco Orthogon has released its new OSYRIS Queue Management software, which incorporates arrival and departure management tools to be used by air navigation service providers (ANSP).
The new OSYRIS 4.0 can be deployed separately or coupled to assists airport operators and airlines in improving on-time performance and environmental sustainability.
Barco Orthogon CEO and managing director Frank Köhne said that the OSYRIS Queue Management software is the first complete tool set developed for all stakeholders in air traffic management to ensure consistent queue management.
"The new release provides advanced functions that are the result of agreements regarding resource optimisation and air traffic performance with a number of demanding airport operators, ANSPs and airlines, including Gatwick Airport, the Turkish Air Navigation Service Provider DHMI and Airways New Zealand," Köhne said.
The new software also helps airspace users to enhance flight efficiency through more efficient and flexible usage of airspace and runway capacities.
According to the firm, the new OSYRIS Arrival Manager (AMAN) can also be incorporated with the Collaborative Flow Manager (CFM) to provide steady queue management of air traffic from take-off to landing, while meeting the requirements of all stakeholders.
Featuring an extended operational horizon of up to 550NM, the new AMAN assists in optimising inbound traffic across air traffic control centres, while reducing fuel burn.
Barco Orthogon’s OSYRIS Departure Manager (DMAN) offers departure sequencing, supports de-icing and remote holding processes, as well as addresses ‘what if’ situations, which would also improve on-time performance and operational efficiency of the airport.
DMAN also offers ANSPs with improved runway capacity utilisation and consideration of take-off slot constraints.
