During the last few years skyguide has advanced with Switzerland's local single sky concept, the Virtual Centre Initiative. A Virtual Centre is the foundation for seamless, location-independent air traffic management. It allows groups of air traffic service units in different locations to operate from one single system.
Skyguide's Virtual Centre model is based on an up-to-date service-oriented architecture, which is built on open standards, complying with the System Wide Information management (SWIM) concept.
The Virtual Centre drives operational flexibility, business continuity and cost-effective technical evolution.
Klaus Meier, skyguide's Chief Information Officer: "we believe that a paradigm shift is needed in the air traffic management industry. Switzerland embraces this opportunity and actively contributes to shaping the future of the ATM industry through our “one-sky-by-one-system" approach.
