We are pleased that Avinor chose us to provide the BOAS system. This reconfirms Adacel is uniquely qualified to address ATM requirements for systems used to control oceanic or mixed surveillance/non-surveillance airspaces.

Adacel announced today that it has been awarded a contract by Avinor, the Norwegian Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP), to provide a new ATM system for managing air traffic in the Bodø Oceanic Flight Information Region (OFIR).
The new Bodø Oceanic ATM System (BOAS) will address the growth in traffic in the Bodø OFIR, which has nearly doubled over the past 5 years, and will improve the level of service to airspace users and the interaction with adjacent ANSP’s. Implementation of data link and other capabilities to address new North Atlantic (NAT) Region requirements are also part of this project.
The BOAS requirements will be fully met by Adacel’s proven Aurora ATM system, which is already used to control traffic throughout the oceanic airspaces controlled by Fiji, Iceland, New Zealand, Portugal and the United States. This Linux based system is scalable to meet all operational requirements and features functionality to support NextGen and SESAR initiatives including 4D profile protection, automated conflict detection, monitoring & control by exception, separation based on individual aircraft performance and equipage, dynamic airspace allocation, controller pilot data link communications (CPDLC) and automatic dependent surveillance contract and broadcast (ADS-C and ADS-B). Controller training for Avinor will be provided by NAV Portugal who has used the Aurora system since 2001.
Avinor is responsible for planning, developing and operating the Norwegian airport network. Avinor operates 46 airports in Norway of which 12 are in cooperation with the armed forces. Operations also include air traffic control towers, control centers and technical infrastructure for aircraft navigation.
Adacel is a leading developer of operational air traffic management systems, speech recognition applications and advanced ATC simulation and training solutions. The Company’s products are widely used throughout Europe, North America, the Middle East and the Pacific Rim.
