Estonia’s ATC provider completes phase two of data management upgrade
Estonia’s state-owned air traffic services provider has collaborated with Comsoft Solutions on a major modernisation of its aeronautical information management (AIM) system.
UPGRADE: Estonia's coastline from the air
Estonian Air Navigation Services (EANS) has successfully completed the next step in its major AIM modernisation programme.
EANS is working with German air traffic management solution company Comsoft Solutions on the programme. Comsoft Solutions said its work with EANS is one of the largest upgrade projects it has ever carried out and is in full compliance with European ADQ regulation EC 73/2010 and the ICAO AIS to AIM roadmap.
With the successful upgrade of Comsoft Solutions AIM database, CADAS-AIMDB, EANS now benefits from ADQ compliant data management, integrated workflow management, a new generation of Internet based flight planning and briefing and implementation of the complete aeronautical data chain including data originators.
SWIM compliant interfaces allows digital aeronautical data exchange of static and dynamic data, AIXM 5.1 and legacy data formats within system boundaries and beyond. EANS enhanced AIXM 5.1 data management capabilities are also fully integrated with Frequentis’ smartWFM, a workflow management sub-system that connects data originators with EANS and also manages internal ADQ related workflows.
During 2018, the next phase of the innovation programme will occur with the system augmented to an AIXM 5.1 based digital NOTAM management tool, making EANS the first ANSP in Europe to use digital NOTAM operationally. Additional GIS tools will enhance the static and dynamic AIXM 5.1 data quality assurance processes.
“We are pleased with the successful upgrade of AIM for Estonia, and are happy to be a long-term partner of EANS. With our mature and scalable CADAS product range, we strive to excel on providing high quality Aeronautical data management systems for the safety and efficiency of air traffic within Europe and beyond.” says Uli Kaage, Head of Sales for Frequentis and Comsoft Solutions AIM business unit.
EANS manages both domestic and international air traffic in the Tallinn Flight Information Region, covering the airspace over the Estonian territory and adjacent oceanic regions.
