Thales extends its AIM* and AMHS* presence in Latin America

Thales is pleased to announce it has continued to extend its footprint in the AIM* and AMHS* domains in the Latin America region with three new successes in Chile, Ecuador and Bolivia.
In December 2011, following an international open tender, Thales signed a contract with the Chilean Civil Aviation to provide an AIS* system in Santiago, at the San Pablo Air Traffic Control Centre. This project sets the foundation of a wider transition towards AIM* for the Chilean DGAC* and is already fully compliant with the new 2012 Flight Plan format in this country. In January 2012, the AIS* and AMHS* systems were successfully delivered and put into operation in Ecuador, in line with the expected schedule. This system has replaced the existing Thales AFTN* which has been serving the national civil aviation authoritys messaging services for more than 15 years.

Finally, the AMHS system in Bolivia was deployed countrywide accepted and became operational in September 2011. Even though the project started in 2010, the products delivered were already in line with the 2012 flight plan regulations.

These three additional successes in the region illustrate the expertise developed by Thales and the excellent relationship established with these civil aviations along the years.

With more than 130 radars and 25 Air Traffic Centres already installed in Mexico, Santo Domingo, Colombia, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil, as well as navigation aids systems in operation in nearly all the countries of the region, Thales confirms its strong leadership in the broader Latin American region, where it has been present for more than 40 years.
