Posted 24 October 2018 · Add Comment

Frequentis, a supplier of communication and information solutions, and the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) have announced the establishment of an MoU to support current and future developments in airspace management.

 

The MoU will establish a general working arrangement between the pair, in order to strengthen GCAA’s position as a leading organisation within the air traffic control (ATC) domain, while reinforcing Frequentis’ role in providing systems that ensure the efficient and safe management of airspace. Key topics for the growth of the partnership will address the enhancement of future flight planning, the interoperability of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and research to identify and develop Air Navigation Service capabilities.

“The GCAA is always keen to strengthen our partnership with industry leaders like Frequentis to explore new eras of innovations and excellence in Air Navigation Services. Through this agreement, we will exchange our knowledge and experiences and work together to strengthen our position as a regional and global leader,” said Saif Mohammed Al Suwaidi, Director General of UAE General Civil Aviation Authority.

“The agreement between Frequentis and GCAA highlights the organisations’ unified commitments to a collaborative roadmap that will allow knowledge transfer, enhanced capabilities and prototypes developments.” said Ahmed Al Jallaf, Assistant Director General of ANSP in the GCAA.

Under the strengthened partnership, a commitment to develop a Collaborative Air Traffic Flow Management C-ATFM, to enable essential improvements for future flight planning in the region according to the needs of all stakeholders will be established.  Additionally, the pair will work together on the implementation of an unmanned traffic management (UTM) data exchange platform that will ensure interoperability with current and future ATM system components, with the aim of creating a blueprint for the Middle East region and beyond.

“We are proud to be strengthening our partnership with GCAA, demonstrating our commitment to aligning our strategic objectives, enabling the continuous development of pioneering air navigation services in the UAE and neighbouring regions," said Norbert Haslacher, CEO Frequentis AG. 

The first step of the partnership will establish a regional user group to discuss the evolution of the AIM roadmap, in order for the GCAA to enhance and adapt its AIM system capabilities, to meet future requirements. Together, Frequentis and the GCAA will continuously develop air navigation service standards and prototypes focusing on the implementation of SWIM-enabled applications and services.
