Your fully traceable data chain of Aeronautical Information, from origination to publication, accessible from all ATM components.
As an aircraft is always in movement whether on the tarmac or in the skies, it is crucial to know its position and situation at all times to detect incoming issues and design optimum solutions. Consequently all the flight data collected including cartography and flight planning as well as air navigation services need to be treated and shared to all airspace users.
They need to have access to accurate and timely aeronautical data and information to insure safety air navigation.

Countries in AIXM5.1
of the world's airspace controlled by Thales
A complete & modular aeronautical information management suite
In an increasingly data-reliant automated environment, the smooth and timely flow of accurate, high quality digital information between aviation actors is of critical importance.
TopSky-AIM offer is a component-based solution ready to integrate the latest technological developments from SESAR & Next Gen.
TopSky – AIM Solutions are based on a robust product strategy for the next 10 years and beyond. They comply with the ICAO Aviation System Block Upgrades roadmaps and key standards. As world leading solutions, they are mature, safe and reliable.
The effectiveness of information is a key challenge for ANSP that can be achieved by reducing the need for human intervention. The aeronautical database must be the single point of truth, delivering fully auditable data while preserving the security and integrity of data. Duplicated data must be removed, and the risk of data entry errors must be minimized.
Customers want a global and modular AIM solution aligned with the latest standards. The main goal is to give the accurate information at the right place and at the right time.
Thales has developed TopSky – AIM, a new AIXM5 based Aeronautical Information and Data Management solution. It is the most complete, reliable and scalable solution available for a smooth transition from AIS to AIM.
TopSky – AIM supports the advanced SESAR and NextGen developments. It complies with EuroControl standards, ICAO’s Aviation System Block Upgrade - Block 0 and is ready and aligned with Block 1. TopSky is fully SWIM ready.
The product vision and roadmap are shared with customers who actively participate to the creation of new features.
TopSky - AIM includes a complete set of interoperable components covering the full range of AIM functions.
All components are fully independent and are designed to be smoothly integrated within ANSP existing solutions.
TopSky – AIM on the Cloud: Get rid of the burden of hosting the software on your premises and make substantial savings
TopSky - AIM is also available on the cloud, meaning that no hefty installation is required. The initial set-up cost is drastically reduced, as well as the total cost of ownership all along the lifecycle of the AIM system. This highly reduces your investment required to start your AIS to AIM transition.
We take care of the maintenance and you can focus on your real job: aeronautical data management. New versions of the software can be installed more frequently, allowing you to benefit from bug fixes and new features. Cloud hosting also enables to better dimension the hardware requirement to your exact needs. Indeed, cloud storage and processing power can be scaled to the evolution of your database and your usage of the software. With cloud hosting, the cost of ownership is more than halved.
Benefit from the service you need, at very competitive prices
TopSky - AIM comes with a set of services, that can be purchased based on your real needs. Charting and procedure design require highly qualified staff, who are often difficult to hire and keep in the company. Additionally, the workload is punctual and cannot always be spread along the year. Resulting in phases of load peaks and under load.
For a few charts and procedure revision every year, it is much more cost effective to rely on highly skilled experts, who can perform the update in a fraction of the time it would take to someone performing a few revisions per year only. This also allows you to reduce the training cost to master comprehensive charting and procedure design software.
Services can be tailored to your needs, all along the lifecycle of the product.
Choosing Thales means creating a long-term and trustworthy partnership with the pioneer of aeronautical systems.
Choosing TopSky - AIM means benefiting from the most complete and deployed solution in the world.
You are sure to make the right choice.
