Airports and Airlines

Aeronautical information management on six continents

Aeronautical Information Management (AIM) solutions leverage more than seventy years of ATC heritage showcasing true leadership in this market. During this timeframe, more than twenty years of AIM-specific experience has built the foundation for shaping this focus within the company. Frequentis supports these users with its interoperable information management components for everyone along the aeronautical digital data chain, increasing efficiency and quality in automated data handling from data origination at airports to data ingest of airlines.

Project FALKE: Successful interception of illegally flying drones at Hamburg Airport (VIDEO)

On 22 September 2021, the interception of a non-cooperative drone was successfully demonstrated for the first time in a field test at Hamburg Airport as part of the FALKE project, funded by the BMVI (Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure) - for interesting insights, watch the VIDEO.

FALKE provides an automated and standardised solution that can also be used at other German airports, considering all areas of competence and responsibility. In addition to the Frequentis Group, the German Federal Police, DFS, Lufthansa, Hamburg Airport, the Hensoldt Group, and the Professorship for Electrical Measurement Technology at the Helmut Schmidt University (HSU) Hamburg are involved in the project.

This video documents the successful field test at Hamburg Airport in September 2021.

Airlines

Downstream, airlines can rely on the correct automatic ingest of data to run their data engines and optimisation tools. While all regulatory requirements are fulfilled and data structures are applied according to international standards, the flexibility of the solution allows the addition of data and business rule extensions to manage and process additional data that is especially crucial in the airline industry.

Airports

Upstream, data origination at airports is being supported through the correct formatting and verification of the completeness of all data according to the latest requirements and regulations from ICAO, Eurocontrol or the EC. A flexible workflow engine allows third-party originators to manage data in a true collaborative manner while internal departments and teams are constantly informed about the current status of tasks and the respective data.

Data Management

Data management organisations can rely on the correct automatic ingest of data via a workflow-based management of their specific data sources and data originators. Additionally, they can feel confident of the powerful publication and data exchange tools that support data products tailored to the needs of the specific end customer. All regulatory requirements are fulfilled and data structures are applied according to international standards. This is made possible due to the flexibility of the solution that allows the addition of data and business rule extensions to manage and process the additional data that is crucial in the data management industry.

The Frequentis AIM solution is an entire system landscape that consists of modular components, fully integrated internally and with third-party components to ensure complete interoperability along the digital aeronautical data chain.

Short term information management smartINMO consists of

  • AIXM NOTAM management
  • Web/pilot briefing
  • Extensive flight plan management
  • smartWeather for the management and integration of meteo data.

Long term information management smartDM consists of

  • AIXM information management
  • Extensive reporting tools
  • Comprehensive GIS component
  • smartETOD for the management and integration of terrain and obstacle data.

For the creation of ICAO standard publications and any type of non-standard publications, the following components are available

  • General publication management platform PAMS with smartWeb clients
  • smartAIP for AIP management
  • smartCharting for management of aeronautical charts.

smartWFM and smartADQ allow organisations to map organisational structures of the entire work environment including third-party collaboration units, team members and roles into the solution workspace. On this basis, workflows are created through which the cooperation of teams and how different modules and tools interact is defined. This is the basis for a truly customer-specific configuration of a standard process with full interoperability not only for the initial setup, but that can be adapted and extended at any stage in the future according to a changing environment and changing needs, while fully protecting the initial investment in the overall solution.

All components are available for all users along the digital data chain ensuring full data exchange capabilities and are scalable for the smallest teams up to solutions for large multinational organisations. Most of the tools and components are also available as stand-alone systems, as hub platforms, as hub-services or as AIM services in specific cloud environments.

The basis for the innovative Frequentis AIM solution landscape is an intensive investment in research, continuous extensions and improvement. Our activities under SESAR2020 and NextGen, the extensive participation in expert working groups and the general close collaboration with ICAO, EUROCONTROL, EUROCAE and CANSO is important for us to drive useful standards in the AIM industry. Our unique 4.5/5.1 AIXM data duality implementation and our selection as the winner of the SWIM Masterclass bear testimony to the fundamental Frequentis strategy of fostering an innovation spirit in the data management domain.

Frequentis Air Traffic Management – Digital. Sustainable. Safe.

Frequentis leads the way with innovative solutions for traffic management and collaboration, ensuring safety always comes first. Our solution portfolio comprises service-based solutions for voice communication, ATM-grade networks, remote and integrated digital towers, traffic optimisation, surveillance and information management.

 

Efficiency meets dynamics

Constant growth is a well-known historical challenge, but the regular ATM playbook has changed: the new normal in ATM is defined by a traffic situation which is more volatile, and less predictable. In the long run this means that traffic fluctuations caused by disruptive factors such as pandemics, weather, or political issues, will be the new normal, hence ATC services need to scale up and down, in a cost-efficient way, while simultaneously offering greater resilience.

The ability to provide more precise route planning and traffic management that takes into account real-time weather data, together with optimised flight profiles, will reduce fuel consumption. Adding effective departure management tools in the tower will also allow engine time on the ground to be reduced.

A digital platform ensures that data is shared and used in the right way, and new approaches to Controller Working Position integration provide best-in-class situational awareness for controllers. 

Our solutions: Digital tower, incl. A-SMGCS | Remote digital tower | Traffic synchronisation |ATC systems

 

True IT in ATM

Communication continues to be critical for airspace safety. Networks and communication technologies are ALREADY moving from legacy to digital; radios will no longer be connected point-to-point but will be seen as a service in an IT-based communication world.

The IT revolution in ATM has just started. At Frequentis we are mastering this paradigm shift by providing you with safe and secure communication solutions, taking advantage of modern IT concepts.

Virtualisation, cloud-based systems and intelligent networks are the foundations of modern IT-based ATM technologies.

Our solutions: VCS X10 | vitalsphere network performance | Advanced network monitoring | DIVOS recording and replay

 

Digital data to unite the sky

The ATM revolution has already started: the management of drones in a UTM system has reached an unprecedented level of automation by embracing digital platforms and digital data at its core. Concepts such as SWIM, primarily developed in the ATM domain, can be applied to UTM and will help accelerate the evolution of UTM systems. Combining digital data, information management, ubiquitous connectivity and autonomous decision making, UTM paves the way for the next level of ATM automation, managing everything that flies.

Digital data and autonomous systems are the future for managing both traditional aircraft and new airspace users.

Our solutions: UTM drone traffic management | SWIM/AMHS | CADAS AIM digital data management tools
