Given WATMC’s positioning as the world’s largest Air Traffic Management (ATM) event, it fits to see the global market leader for communication and information systems in ATM demonstrating its coveted position. Many of the 5,000 visitors from over 100 countries found their way to the Frequentis booth, panel discussion, presentations and demonstrations. They enjoyed product demonstrations, attended the Frequentis panel “Cultivating Innovation in ATM: delivering the promises with new operational concepts”, visited the presentation on “Hybrid Networks: investment protection and safe migration to IP-based, safety-critical ATC networks” or simply chatted about today’s ATM issues.
The products and solutions on display at WATMC - held at IFEMA Feria de Madrid in Spain - mirrored the company’s stellar status as a supplier, integrator and operator of voice communication and information systems and solutions for centres, towers, AIM offices and military ATC & air defence operations.
Frequentis presented a very strong line-up of solutions at the show, reinforcing its position as technology leader and innovator with a strong commitment to the ATM industry.

System Wide Information Management (SWIM) Demo:The demonstrations organised by SESAR Joint Undertaking involved 10 different ATM organisations (including Frequentis) interconnecting 31 instances and successfully exchanging information on airspace, flights, airports and weather. Together with our industry partners in SESAR, we have been able to showcase the benefits of SWIM and how our products are SWIM-enabled getting closer to deployment in the near future.
