Leonardo: Improving air traffic management reliability
From Leonardo’s Electronics Division, working in Air and Land Systems Engineering, Gianfrancesco Ranieri discusses how to further develop the ATM sector.
How can aviation work to ensure ATM is more reliable?
Leonardo’s ATM product, LeadInSky, is highly automated and allows integration between different ATM operational needs, such as ground ASMGCS (Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System), approach and on route with maximum flexibility in roles and configurations.
LeadInSky is built to support controllers in any situation, including degraded modes to guarantee the tightest safety regulation requirements.
The system can be deployed in virtualised architecture, allowing LeadInSky to overcome issues related to physical disruption of the HW in the case of losing specific server functionality (for example, safety nets and flight plan processors).
