NATS Services launch Nucleus – a new way to manage aviation data
NATS Services is pioneering a new way of managing critical aeronautical data and information for its customers.
At ATC Global in Amsterdam, it will be demonstrating Nucleus, which centrally manages all aviation data – from telephone numbers to frequencies – and which promises to revolutionise how air navigation service providers make use of this information.
Single European Sky legislation, in the shape of the Aeronautical Data Quality Intended Rulemaking, demands far more robust practices for managing this data, which will be enforced by new laws due to be introduced by 2012. Nucleus has been developed to meet specifically these new requirements and is the only solution on the market today to ensure compliance.
NATS Services Head of Aeronautical Information Management Stef Malan said: “Everyone in the aviation industry knows about the importance of having access to the correct aeronautical information”.
“Nucleus means data management can now be automated, with complete confidence and a high degree of accuracy. The application uses its own update cycle to ensure all data recorded from disparate sources is handled accurately, is traceable and can be audited”.
“Where there are exceptions that cannot be updated automatically, they are immediately flagged for action so the user knows what is required and can take the required action in a controlled environment. It’s simple and effective and we believe it’s a new way forward which will save our customers time and money and optimise data management responsibility by creating systems and processes that ensure data quality and integrity.”
Stef explained that customers can shape Nucleus to meet exactly their needs – from a simple service model to a fully outsourced solution – where all aspects are managed on their behalf, reliably and safely.
To see Nucleus in action, visit NATS Services on stand D114 at ATC Global from Monday March 8 to Thursday March 11.
