Adacel to Integrate Era ADS-B and Multilateration Surveillance
Orlando, Florida (10 March, 2009) - Adacel, an industry leader in air traffic automation, simulation, speech recognition technology and software integration, announced today it has been awarded a contract from Era Systems Corporation to supply its Aurora air traffic management (ATM) system for Fiji.
The contract is part of a nation-wide project awarded to Era by Airports Fiji Limited (AFL) to provide a comprehensive, advanced air traffic management (ATM) system for the Nadi flight information region (FIR). Adacels Aurora ATM system will replace the existing ATM systems in the area control center (ACC) and in the control towers at Nadi and Nausori airports. The ATM system will integrate data from Eras MSSsm ADS-B and multilateration surveillance system.
We are very pleased to be part of this program with Era, said Adacel CEO Fred Sheldon. Our Aurora ATM system software is already being used in adjacent FIRs by the FAA and Airways New Zealand. With this project, we will provide AFL with equivalent oceanic ATM capabilities as well as en route, approach and tower control in the same system.
It is great to have Adacel on the team, said Russell Hulstrom, Eras Vice President for ATM Solutions. The advanced functionality, ease-of-use, and flexibility of the Aurora product is a star component of the overall solution, and the Adacel team have put together a technical design and support program which is ideal for AFL. The integration of Adacels next generation Aurora ATM automation with Eras surveillance technologies will allow AFL to provide the highest level of customer service throughout its oceanic and domestic airspaces and to transition from procedural to radar-like separation standards within the ADS-B/multilateration surveillance area without ever acquiring radars.
Auroras next generation conflict probe enables user preferred routes, dynamic airborne rerouting and reduced separation to improve airspace efficiency and reduce aviation emissions.
