Military Terminal ATC provision
Enhancing capabilities and lowering costs for the UK MoD
NATS is bidding on the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) MARSHALL programme (formerly Joint Military Air Traffic Services) as part of the AQUILA consortium alongside Thales. The programme will provide the MoD with a military airfield air traffic control system over a 22-year duration.
The consortium brings proven expertise to satisfy the requirements of the MARSHALL programme, which will deliver enhanced capability and significant cost savings in military air traffic management.
The programme is made up of air traffic management systems and services, and will be delivered at all of the MoD-operated airbases and flying ranges internationally. It will also provide an out of area air traffic management capability in support of expeditionary air operations.
In addition, MARSHALL will ensure the MoD complies with the legal requirements of managing an air traffic service and enable the safe operation of its aerial platforms. Project MARSHALL will be a managed service that delivers savings over the lifetime of the programme through improved efficiencies, scale and innovation.
This public-private partnership programme aims to be in place by late 2015.
