Indra has received a contract from the Romanian air navigation services provider (ANSP) ROMATSA for the deployment its latest air traffic management (ATM) system to streamline aircraft movements across the country's airspace.

As part of the €26m contract, Indra will implement the new ATM system in ROMATSA's Bucharest control centre, four approach facilities and 15 control towers.

Indra's ATM system includes advanced functionality of the iTEC platform, which includes the latest interoperability features, a key element for the development of a future Single European Sky.

The new ATM will also feature a flight plan management system, which the company has developed for EUROCONTROL.

"Indra will implement the new ATM system in ROMATSA's Bucharest control centre, four approach facilities and 15 control towers."

The flight plan management technology allows precise controlling of air traffic by using a 4D-trajectory-based technology, while enabling flexible management of airspace, addressing changes in traffic demand, weather conditions and areas reserved for military air traffic.

The system also incorporates iTEC Controller Working Position (CWP), which is a control position already deployed in systems used by DFS and NATS and supported by a de-facto standard for the controller working position.

ROMATSA's contract also includes the delivery of system support tools and the delivery of a simulation system to train controllers.

Upon the completion of modernisation, ROMATSA will be able to comply with future European standards and regulations for air traffic control systems, which can define more efficient routes, leading to savings in fuel and environmental efficiency.
