Posted 28 May 2015 · Add Comment

NATS, the UK's leading provider of air traffic services, and Indra Navia, subsidiary company of the Group Indra, the leading airport and air traffic management (ATM) technology provider, have announced a new air traffic enhancement solution utilising Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS) technology.

Indra have years of experience in delivering GBAS products into service and combined with NATS’ unparalleled expertise in turning technical functionality into operational capability, means that airports and ANSPs can expect a unique ‘one stop shop’ offering. 

The joint solution takes a well-developed product and knowledge base and improves on the current capability of existing GBAS solutions, benefitting airports and ANSPs around the globe. It will prove valuable to any capacity-constrained airport, providing a wide range of approach routes supported by a single system. This will make it possible for airlines to reduce flying time, and therefore save on fuel consumption, whilst also reducing noise for residents near the airport through the use of higher approach angles.
