Indra today announced an agreement to deploy its air traffic control systems with Nav Canada , the air navigation manager of the North American state, an entity similar to the Spanish company Enaire.
The first phase of the agreement will address the deployment of a next-generation flight data processing system (FDPS) and an air traffic flow management (iACM) system for complex airspace within the Nav Canada center responsible for managing the air navigation network of the country, as stated by the Spanish company in a statement.
The agreement involves introducing Trajectory Based Operations (TBO) in Canada, guiding air traffic management towards an approach with a more complete view of the flight from takeoff to landing. This new technology can calculate routes with great precision and predict the evolution of air traffic over a long horizon, allowing for greater planning and coordination. This will provide greater flexibility that will result in improved traffic flow within Canadian airspace and the rest of the network. The result will be more efficient routes for air operators and a reduction in fuel consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions, while providing greater operational resilience and meeting the needs to increase capacity for manage more flights.
This agreement reinforces the collaboration between Nav Canada , the British NATS and the Norwegian Avinor , which also have Indra as a strategic technological partner. Both companies have welcomed this important agreement.
The technology will be deployed over ten years at all NAV CANADA facilities. “We are proud to announce that we have reached an agreement with Indra to deploy the next generation of air traffic management systems in Canada,” said Raymond G. Bohn , president and CEO of Nav Canada . “Once completed, it will be a generational leap in the tools we provide to our employees.”
