Avinor, the navigation service provider for Norwegian airspace, has implemented a new ATM system to handle ever increasing en-route traffic in the North Atlantic.
Over the past three years Avinor has reported a 20 percent increase in en-route traffic in Norwegian airspace covering the North Atlantic region. The new system is tailor made to handle air traffic services in oceanic areas. Avinor can now provide customers in the NAT-region with new and improved services, compliant with NAT-region requirements and EUs Implementing Rules.
Jan-Gunnar Pedersen, director of en-route dervices at Avinor commented: “We are happy to have implemented this new system to provide our customers with an even better service than today.”
The new ATM system, provided by Adacel, can provide an increased level of automation in the communication between aircraft personnel and air traffic controllers. Datalink services, such as Controller Pilot Datalink Communication (CPDLC), Oceanic Clearance (OCL) and Automatic Dependent Surveillance Contract (ADS-C) are now implemented. The interaction between neighbouring sectors, such as Iceland, will also be automated via On-Line Data Interchange (OLDI). Avinor also state that the new system is highly scalable to meet future operational requirements and features functionality to support SESAR initiatives.
Seth Brown, Adacel’s CEO said: “We are very pleased to provide this new system to Avinor and to support them as they commission it into operational service. Norway becomes the latest country to use our Aurora ATM technology which is in operation today in oceanic airspaces controlled by Fiji, France, Iceland, New Zealand, Portugal and the United States. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with Avinor”
