Polish Air Navigation Services Agency (PANSA) is rolling out the new electronic flight data management solution (EFES) from Frequentis, as the first step towards next generation tower services. EFES will be implemented at all 15 control towers in Poland, marking the first step in a program to integrate and streamline flight data around its airports. Airspace users, airport operators and third parties will also see enhancements from flight plan digitalisation.
At World ATM Congress in Madrid, PANSA and Frequentis will provide a first glimpse of this state-of-the-art solution at stands #526 and #239. And on Tuesday, March 12, 11:00 – 11:30 at PANSA’s stand #239 the two partners will present the concept of data-driven aerodromes and how airspace users, airport operators and third parties can benefit from data aggregation.
“PANSA is seeing the biggest change in ATC operations in the last 15 years. The nation-wide rollout of electronic flight strips is just the start. We are working with Frequentis to support our roadmap to unify and integrate data in all of our towers nation-wide.”, says Janusz Janiszewski, Acting President of PANSA.
By modernising and standardising systems that are used by air traffic controllers in their towers, we plan to improve efficiency that will produce benefits in capacity and safety as well as will support airspace users.
“Together with PANSA we are demonstrating how innovative solutions can change our industry. Tower automation and digitialisation will allow all partners to increase efficiency and capacity.” Hannu Juurakko, Frequentis Vice President ATM Civil.
In 2017, PANSA selected Frequentis, a market leader in tower automation solutions, to develop electronic flight data management solution, EFES, based on its smartSTRIPS product. PANSA’s requirements and international standards for data exchange with ATM systems were included in the development of the solution, to allow PANSA to set a new standard for integrated tower systems increasing the productivity and efficiency of ATC operations. Both parties are now preparing to rollout the solution to all 15 locations throughout Poland.
Meet Frequentis and PANSA at World ATM Congress, March 12-14, 2019, stands #526 and #239.
