A driving force behind air traffic modernisation
NATS Engineering enables you to take advantage of evolving technology, helping you find new opportunities for your business and implementing them cost effectively.
Up until now ATM technology has been modernised incrementally – small changes as and when technology advances. But with the planned European joint undertaking, SESAR, and the American equivalent, Next Generation (NextGen), there will soon be a step change in technology.
As an industry leader, NATS has been one of the driving forces behind air traffic modernisation, including SESAR, for many years. We can speak with authority on the technology involved and how it can increase safety and efficiency, while decreasing cost. We provide the innovative and proven solutions that airports, service providers and other aviation businesses around the world will need in these changing times.
Designing the systems to fit your needs
The technology used in airports is rapidly evolving. Our knowledge of this area enables us to understand your needs, whether it’s communications, navigation aids or surveillance, and help you put together the right combination of technologies to meet your needs now and in the future.
We have an extensive knowledge of both traditional voice and data links, and we keep on top of all new developments. With our own network of masts and towers all over the UK, we can make sure your controllers are fed the communications they need. We have experience fitting and maintaining all types of communication technology.
This is an evolving technology that is continually improving the routing of aircraft, especially with satellite navigation. We can help interpret what your navigational requirements are and put together the most effective combination to suit your needs. This takes into account whole life costs to ensure that the solution is the best fit for your budget and operational requirements.
With our established surveillance network, we have a unique foundation to meet your requirements. Looking to the future, we are able to provide you with the multi-radar coverage you need to work safely and effectively. We are now making new technologies available, such as Wide Area Multilateration (WAM) and multistatic radar. We are also experienced in providing mitigation for windfarms to work in conjunction with adjacent surveillance assets.
