Company information

Aviation Data Systems Australia (ADS) is a privately owned Australian company with an eighteen year history in the development of electronics and software for commercial aviation related applications. The company is one of a number of technology oriented businesses in La Trobe University's Research and Development Park located in the Melbourne suburb of Bundoora about 20 minutes drive east of Melbourne's international airport (MEL). The companys technology focus has grown from its initial developments for ACARS systems, to VDL Mode 2 and GNSS/GBAS technologies. ADS is strongly oriented towards development of systems and products which can be adapted and enhanced to meet specific customer requirements. ADS provides both independent platform and PC based hardware and software systems that allow developers and users of data link systems to emulate and engage in datalink operations between a ground station and an aircraft. The primary purpose of many of ADS's systems is to replace either the aircraft system or the ground station system in test and development configurations. The founders, directors and staff at ADS share significant experience in the aviation industry and have a very strong background in airline data link operations, avionics engineering and development, systems installations and maintenance, flight testing and hardware and software development. Aviation Data Systems has demonstrated its credibility and expertise by penetrating an international market dominated by major corporations. This has been achieved by offering products and services that respond directly and immediately to client demand. This customer driven philosophy has won an impressive list of highly valued clients and demonstrates the sustainable value and flexibility of ADSs products and services. In addition to 'off-the-shelf' and customised products, ADS offers consulting and development services for the implementation of aircraft data link innovations. The company was selected as a finalist in the 2002 "The Age / Dun & Bradstreet Victorian Business Awards - Export Category". This selection was based on "outstanding achievements in areas of both financial management and business performance". The award is designed to promote, acknowledge and reward outstanding business achievement in the state of Victoria, Australia.
