Terma A/S has been contracted to supply an ATC Information Support System (ATC*ISS) to the Abu Dhabi International Airport in the United Arab Emirates.
Terma will be a part of the prestigious expansion programme of the Abu Dhabi International Airport which will be completed in 2010. The ATC*ISS will be installed both in the tower cap, approach room and simulator. ATC*ISS provides one single access point for information, improving air traffic safety, as well as working conditions and situational awareness for air traffic controllers. The solutions is fully scalable from tower solutions (minimizing the number of displays) to large ATC centre installations providing information to hundreds of concurrent users. Furthermore, the unique graphical design tool in ATC*ISS allows users to easily layout and format the graphical user interface according to their own desire. The user may define a wide range of parameters for the selection and presentation of available data and ultimately design his or her personal screen layout. The data sources for ATC*ISS can be more or less static documents, Aeronautical Information Publications (AIP), charts or real-time dynamic data sourced from sensors, video, Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS), Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunication Network (AFTN) or external international data based like European AIS Database (EAD). The system delivery for Abu Dhabi will also include integration of CCTV, Runway Performance Calculation and interface to a wide variety of other sub-systems. The Terma ATC*ISS fully complies with the highest standards of the industry and provides for full scalability and easy expansion. Terma will execute the contract as subcontractor to Thales Air Systems.
