Air Traffic Management System Successfully Commissioned in Fiji

Adacel
: 05 March, 2010  (Application Story)
Fiji airports can now use the Air Traffic Management system installed by Adacel in a project which spanned the nation
Adacel, an industry leader in air traffic automation, simulation, speech recognition technology and software integration, has successfully completed site acceptance testing of its Aurora air traffic management (ATM) system for Fiji.


The system is part of a nation-wide project awarded to Era by Airports Fiji Limited (AFL) last year to provide a comprehensive, advanced air traffic management (ATM) system for the Nadi flight information region (FIR). Under subcontract from ERA, Adacel has installed its Aurora ATM system to replace the existing ATM systems in the area control centre (ACC) and in the control towers at Nadi and Nausori airports. The ATM system integrates data from Era’s MSSsm ADS-B and multilateration surveillance system.

“This project provides Fiji with a state of the art ATM system incorporating the latest in surveillance technology,” stated Adacel CEO Fred Sheldon. “Our Aurora ATM system software is already being used in adjacent FIR’s controlled by the US and New Zealand. With this project, we have provided AFL with equivalent oceanic ATM capabilities as well as en route, approach and tower control in the same system. We are especially pleased to have completed SAT within 12 months of contract award.”

The integration of Adacel’s next generation Aurora ATM automation with Era’s surveillance technologies will allow AFL to provide the highest level of customer service throughout its oceanic and domestic airspaces and to transition from procedural to radar-like separation standards within the ADS-B/multilateration surveillance area without ever acquiring radars.

Aurora’s next generation conflict probe enables user preferred routes, dynamic airborne rerouting and reduced separation in oceanic areas to improve airspace efficiency and reduce aviation emissions. The tower display systems incorporate Adacel’s advanced air traffic situation display and electronic flight strips. Adacel will demonstrate their technology at ATC Global stand R202 next week.
