CAIRO, 16 Sept. 2012. Officials of the National Air Navigation Services Co. (NANSC) in Cairo needed to modernize aeronautical information services (AIS) in Egypt’s air traffic control (ATC) centers as well as at all airports of the Egypt. They found their solution from COMSOFT GmbH in Karlsruhe, Germany.
NANSC awarded the German ATC specialist COMSOFT the contract to modernize information technology in Egypt’s ATC centers. After factory acceptance conducted by NANSC’s AIS experts, the large-sized information system is about to be rolled out to its final destination. In the first phase, the main aeronautical information management (AIM) system will be installed at Cairo Air Navigation Center (CANC).
The air traffic control technology can be accessed remotely via the Internet from Egypt’s five major airports -- Aswan, Sharm El Sheikh, Hurghada, Luxor, and Alexandria. Phase two will see Egypt’s nine remaining domestic airports connected to the new AIM system.
COMSOFT supplies NANSC the CADAS AIM solution that implements ICAO’s and EUROCONTROL’s latest AIM standards. The solution handles conventional as well as future digital NOTAMs using its native AIXM 5.1 database, which integrates with COMSOFT’s flight plan management and briefing applications and Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP).
COMSOFT will supply the company's Internet Security Appliance (CISECA) that employs a layered security system to shield AIM functions and applications from unauthorized access and malicious intrusions.
