A key NATS customer

Around the world military airspace users are under increasing pressure to share airspace with civil aviation for commercial, political and environmental reasons.

We have dedicated teams with civil/military experience to work on addressing these unique issues and challenges. They are experienced in integrating systems for either joint or flexible use by civil/military aircraft and can help restructure your airspace to make it work seamlessly. We also provide innovative services developed in the commercial environment that can be tailored for civil/military use.

Advances in technology are providing opportunities to reduce controller workloads and to provide military air traffic control more efficiently with less manpower. This is particularly essential as military budgets come under increased scrutiny and pressure. These efficiencies can be achieved without any impact on security and safety, and provides more certainty in a world becoming more and more congested.

NATS has the expertise to work with the military air traffic control organisations and bring all these aspects together, improving operational performance and cost-efficiency. Through our close working relationship with the UK Ministry of Defence and significant numbers of employees with military experience, we have developed an innate knowledge of what needs to be achieved in terms of air traffic management and airspace requirements, allowing us to deliver the right results cost-effectively.

NATS is committed to meeting our social responsibilities towards the UK’s Armed Forces, its personnel, their families and veterans. NATS is a signatory to the Armed Forces Covenant and we are proud to have been recognised with a Silver award in the Employer Recognition Scheme.
