Frequentis Comsoft integrates space-based ADS-B data into Isavia’s surveillance infrastructure
Isavia ANS, Iceland’s Air Navigation Service Provider, selected Frequentis Comsoft to integrate its space-based ADS-B surveillance data sources with the ground-based infrastructure consisting of radars, ADS-B ground stations and multilateration. The addition of space-based ADS-B to Isavia ANS’ current surveillance capabilities extends Isavia’s current ground-based air traffic surveillance framework, focusing on enhancing the real-time air traffic surveillance in the North-Atlantic surveillance corridor connecting Europe and North America to all customers.
Frequentis Comsoft has provided surveillance data quality analysis and tracker tuning services for the integration of space-based ADS-B surveillance data feeds into Isavia ANS’ main surveillance data processing system (SDP), the EUROCONTROL ARTAS tracker. This extension of Isavia ANS’ surveillance infrastructure enlarges surveillance coverage and closes coverage gaps both over Greenland and the Atlantic Ocean.
