Since 1973, Thales has delivered Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems to Sweden in cooperation with LFV (the Air Navigation Service provider in Sweden). LFV is a state enterprise under the Ministry of Transport & Energy and controls 627,000 square kilometers of airspace.
Thales has over fifty years of experience in designing and implementing radars and ATM systems and provides a complete multisensory surveillance solution. In Sweden, Thales has installed an ATM system (COOPANS – TopSky ATC and radars) that controls Swedish airspace and the airports. Denmark, Sweden, Ireland, Austria and Croatia are working together by using the COOPANS system, ensuring harmonisation through a joint product roadmap. This system benefits from the most advanced capabilities to ensure a safe and efficient operation in high traffic densities and complex airspace structures.
