Traffic Sync

Traffic synchronisation solutions & green operations

Ensuring effective Air Traffic Management operations at and around airports today calls for innovative, perhaps even ground-breaking procedures and decision-support systems. Globally, the ICAO Aviation System Block Upgrades (ASBU) provide an appropriate blueprint. At the European level, the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) programme is blazing a trail for ATM modernisation and greener operations.

Frequentis Orthogon, which joined the Frequentis group in 2021, is recognised as the global leader in high-performance traffic synchronisation solutions. Its solution portfolio boasts a 20-year track record of success, with skyguide leading the way as the first Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) to deploy the AMAN back in 2001. Today, ATCOs worldwide trust the Frequentis solutions to manage air traffic at and around airports in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way possible.

Frequentis was recognised for its contribution to sustainability in aviation with the CANSO Maverick Sustainability Award in 2021.


Products & Solutions

Arrival Manager (AMAN)

The Frequentis Arrival Manager (AMAN) solution helps air traffic controllers efficiently manage inbound flights to optimise runway and airspace capacity. AMAN offers decision-support capabilities to all controllers managing arrivals. Where required, it can be deployed in multi-runway configurations and multi-airport environments. In 2021, the Frequentis Orthogon AMAN won the CANSO Maverick Sustainability Award for its contribution to sustainable aviation.

Departure Manager (DMAN)

The Frequentis Departure Manager solution supports consistent optimised planning of outbound airport traffic, in turn driving optimised target times at the runway and the stands. Its key objectives are the efficient management of airport departure traffic, to ensure maximum utilisation of the available runway capacity, and the appropriate management of additional constraints such as Minimum Departure Intervals (MDIs) and Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) requirements.

Integrated Arrival Departure Manager (IAD)

It can be difficult to optimise runway usage at high-demand, capacity-constrained airports, especially in the case of mixed-mode operations at airports that have just one runway for both arrivals and departures. The Frequentis Integrated Arrival Departure Manager (IAD) solution addresses the challenge of balancing arrivals and departures for maximised airport performance, for example by optimising the efficiency of integrating departures into the arrival stream.

O4D Trajectory Prediction

The Frequentis Orthogon 4D (O4D) Trajectory Prediction has a proven track record of more than 20 years in providing reliable trajectory predictions in air traffic management (ATM). O4D contributes to air traffic flow management (ATFM) and air traffic control (ATC) as well as the coordination with airspace users to achieve optimum trajectories. Frequentis Orthogon successfully deployed the O4D Trajectory Prediction as a service within skyguide’s pioneering Virtual Centre programme.

Demand Capacity Balancer

The Demand Capacity Balancer (DCB) is the world’s first Airport Operations Plan (AOP) management tool. The solution provides a powerful digital twin of airport operations and significantly extends the current planning horizon of Airport CDM to support the AOP implementation in Europe and globally. DCB enables information sharing and integration with the Network Operations Plan (NOP), for example through its unique capability to calculate Target Times of Arrival (TTA).

FREQUENTIS enhances airspace safety in Spain with nationwide contingency voice communication system

ENAIRE, the air navigation service provider (ANSP) of Spain, is upgrading 14 contingency voice communication systems across nine different locations in Barcelona, Madrid Area Control Centre and ENAIRE Test Centre, Seville, Palma de Mallorca, the Canary Islands, Málaga, Valencia and Zaragoza.

The project, contracted in 2020, is the first large-scale voice communication project for the country, and was driven by a need for the renewal of the country’s backup systems. Frequentis has now implemented the contingency systems at both the main operations room and the contingency room in Seville, with the systems in Palma de Mallorca, the Canary Islands, Barcelona, Valencia, Zaragoza, Málaga and Madrid following throughout 2022 and 2023.

Morocco upgrades aeronautical message handling with Frequentis Comsoft

Morocco upgrades aeronautical message handling with Frequentis Comsoft

The Moroccan Airports Authority, ONDA (Office National Des Aéroports), entrusted Frequentis Comsoft with the upgrade of their message handling and switching capability in line with latest ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) basic and extended AMHS (ATS Message Handling System) service profiles.

Thanks to its strategic location, Morocco is an important hub for air traffic flows between many regions of the world. The continuous and secure flow of aeronautical messages is crucial to safe air traffic management, which is why upgrades to new standards and the implementation of new features are vital in preparing ONDA for the future demands and challenges of its airspace.

“Frequentis Comsoft successfully upgraded our message handling system, smoothly, ahead of schedule and with no interruption to normal operation, despite COVID restrictions. The upgrade enables us to further support the increasing demands of our service, both now and in the future.” said Bartal Said, Information Processing Division Manager, ONDA.
