Saab, along with partners NAV CANADA and Harris, developed INTAS on NAVCANatm technology that was modified to meet the specific needs of the NTP initiative.
The successful implementation of INTAS in Melbourne demonstrates its flexibility and capability to integrate flight data, advanced air field lighting control, and fused air and ground surveillance with safety logic in a large complex tower," said Sid Koslow, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at NAV CANADA.
As with any new system, we have been working closely with Saab Sensis to keep INTAS updated to the latest software versions, ensuring we continue to operate safely, which is our highest priority.
INTAS is expected to contribute to improved efficiencies at Cairns and Gold Coast airports by introducing a dedicated Airways Clearance Delivery frequency and function without the need to increase the number of controllers.
is comprised of a Controller Working Position with up to four touchscreen monitors to display data and common input devices based on the airport, Nav Canada said.
The inherent flexibility in the INTAS
platform allows it to meet the current and future demands of all tower types and operator position," said Sid Koslow, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at NAV CANADA.
Saab Sensis, along with partners Nav Canada and US-based Harris have developed and are deploying INTAS
Our controllers played a critical role in the development of INTAS
as they provided input, feedback and refinements along the entire design path to ensure the new system met current operating requirements with minimal retraining.
The announcement follows the introduction of INTAS
in newly constructed air traffic control towers in Broome, Rockhampton, Adelaide and Melbourne.
incorporates a fully digital voice communication subsystem, supplied by SolaCom Technologies, directly into the flight information management system.
is part of Airservices Australia s National Towers Program (NTP) initiative to modernize or replace the core ATC technology in its towers with a universal, flexible solution that meets current and future controller needs for safe, efficient operations.
