Frequentis facilitates change to weather data model to meet updated ICAO standard

Frequentis smartWeather release 6 fully supports requirements for updated ICAO Meteorological Information Exchange Model (IWXXM)

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has mandated that from November 2020 weather information must be provided in ICAO meteorological information exchange model, IWXXM, as well as in traditional alphanumeric code (TAC) format. The machine-readable message format will facilitate information exchange for controller tools and automation systems.

The mandate to support IWXXM modernises meteorological information in harmonisation with other XML based information exchange models including aeronautical information exchange model (AIXM) and flight information exchange model (FIXM).

Enhanced surveillance data monitoring for Icelandic airspace

Frequentis Comsoft increases reliability and accuracy of surveillance data for Isavia Air Navigation Services (ANS)

Isavia ANS, Iceland’s Air Navigation Service Provider, has selected Frequentis Comsoft to upgrade its radar data monitoring system (RMD) to the latest solution, RAPS-SMD, which will enable further accurate monitoring of surveillance data, including ADS-B and WAM, and improve the air situation picture. Air traffic situation in Iceland is provided by both radar and a country-wide ADS-B network, provided by Frequentis Comsoft Quadrant sensors. Losing access to surveillance data in one section of airspace can significantly reduce air traffic control (ATC) capacity. 

Our solution provides Iceland with real-time sensor observation combined with continuous technical recording, automated data export and offline post-event analysis. This enables increased accuracy and improved evaluation.

COVID-19 compels aviation industry to speed up the modernisation of the ATM system and prioritise business continuity

Frequentis emphasises benefit of SESAR Virtual Centre concept during pandemic 

Many flights across the world remain grounded due to COVID-19, however, repatriation flights and cargo flights require the airspace to remain open. There have also been cases of interrupted air traffic control (ATC) services due to suspected COVID cases in air traffic control centres. Today’s operational ATC concept does not allow other sectors to immediately take-over operations, if area control centres (ACCs) are taken out of service. This calls for a modernisation of the ATM system, building on virtualised ATC centres for ACCs and tower, with built-in business continuity, beyond national or regional borders.
