Airport operators and air navigation service providers face many challenges. How to evolve ATC systems to align with legislation and standards. Ensuring the safe operation of ATC systems in a changing environment, where wind farms and 5G networks are among the developments that need to be accommodated. Determining which asset investment strategy will best fit the future. Developing people to keep pace with technological change.
These challenges and others are not easy to solve. Delays and cost overruns on ATC projects are commonplace. New technology is delivered with too little thought given to front-line operators and the need to move to a whole new way of working. Or there are problems combining the latest technologies with an array of existing systems to create a fully integrated system.
NATS is able to bring a unique perspective. As an air navigation service provider, we have first-hand experience of the issues faced. We employ over 900 highly experienced engineers and project managers, dedicated to tackling them.
Every project should deliver clear dividends, whether greater efficiency, increased capacity, reduced costs or improved safety. With our in-depth understanding of both operation and engineering communities, we’re ideally placed to make this happen.
We know that the success of these complex projects relies on the early engagement of front-line staff. A collaborative approach, both with ATC operators and with other industry suppliers, will ensure solutions are safe, fit-for-purpose and delivered ahead of schedule and under budget.
We can provide a range of services and expertise. You may be looking for independent advice and guidance at a specific stage in a project lifecycle, such as systems definition or transition management. Or you may require a turnkey solution spanning strategic planning through to operation. We offer both distinct stand-alone service packages and end-to-end solutions.
