Thales cements Air Traffic Management leadership in Asia with Thai contract
Following the announcement on the eve of the Singapore Air Show that Thales’s LORADS III system is now operational in Singapore, the world ATM leader announces today, on the opening day of the Air Show, a further contract to modernise Thailand’s air traffic management, thus cementing its position as ATM leader in the region.
Thales will deliver a complete nationwide Air Traffic Management system to Aeronautical Radio of Thailand Ltd. (Aerothai), Thailand’s air navigation service provider.
The system, called Thailand Modernization CNS/ATM System (TMCS), will provide Aerothai’s air traffic controllers with the world’s latest technology. Based on the Thales TopSky-ATC system, the system will allow Aerothai to manage the ever-increasing air traffic in Thailand’sairspace by enabling enhanced inter-operability with neighbouring countries, thus achieving the ASEAN- and ICAO-sponsored Seamless Asian Sky harmonisation.
Thales’s TopSky-ATC features multiple levels of contingency and backup, allowing it to efficiently service the national en-route air traffic control centre, the six approach control centres, and allowing the TopSky-Tower to manage 41 regional airport towers, as well as providing an enhanced TopSky-Arrival/Departure Manager and a TopSky-Simulator to train air traffic controllers.
Primed by Thales’s local partner, Samart Corp., an integrated project team will ensure the timely delivery of all systems and services,including a nationwide voice switch system.
