Actively managing change in ATM

Actively managing change in ATM

The center of gravity for the ATM industry will once again be in Washington DC at the ATCA Annual Exhibition and Conference and Frequentis is in full swing to share our insights into industry developments and trends.

The predominant themes this year are Digitalization and Virtualization of ATC services and communication. 

IP-based technology is already in wide use on a global basis.  To date this has industry has cautious adopted these technologies due to the ‘safety-critical’ nature of Air Traffic Management communications.  Although it looks simple from the outside, the transition to IP has major impacts on how communications between air traffic control facilities will be conducted in the future. In addition to IP-based technologies, we are closely following tech trends around the world, and are convinced that machine learning and artificial intelligence have already reached ATM. Digitalization of towers, and remote virtual tower technologies will also provide huge benefits to regular tower operations.

We have also identified the potential for software-defined networking (SDN) to improve ATM networks. Software-defined networking (SDN) has already been adopted by big Internet companies such as Google and major telecoms providers. Today, thanks to an intelligent, converged network, ATM customers can reap the benefits of SDN, and its already happening.

ANSPs require collaborative thinking and efficient, integrated solutions that will support the future evolutions of their infrastructures. Airspace is constrained and ATM resources are under pressure to increase efficiency without compromising on safety.
