Adacel, an industry leader in air traffic automation announced today it has been awarded a contract by the Directorate of Air Navigation Services of France (DSNA) for the deployment of a new ATM system for Cayenne, French Guiana.
The system will be installed in the Cayenne-Félix Eboué Centre which controls an area of 1.5 million square kilometers in the South Atlantic and is adjacent to the oceanic airspaces controlled by Brazil, Senegal, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago. The system will be used to control traffic in all phases of flight within the Flight Information Region (FIR).
The contract is the first in a series planned by the DSNA to modernize air traffic management systems in the overseas territories of France. Adacel is one of three companies prequalified to bid on the follow-on projects, which, like the contract for Cayenne, will provide modern ATM systems for approach and tower control.
Speaking of the award, Seth Brown, Adacel’s Chief Executive Officer said “We are very pleased to receive this contract from the DSNA. We have worked closely with the DSNA since 2010 when we began implementation of a Data Link system for Cayenne. This new award validates the success of that experience and recognizes our ability to address the DSNA’s requirements in a cost effective fashion.”
Adacel’s Aurora ATM automation system is a global system that manages all types of airspace and domains from the Oceanic, En Route, Terminal and Approach Sectors to the Control Tower Unit. The system is scalable and configurable to meet present and future requirements and incorporates the latest in CNS/ATM technologies. Aurora automation technology is currently in operational use in airspaces controlled by Fiji, France, Iceland, New Zealand, Portugal and the United States.
Adacel is a leading developer of operational air traffic management systems, speech recognition applications and advanced ATC simulation and training solutions. Adacel's Aurora ATM includes capabilities envisaged for FAA NextGen and EUROCONTROL SESAR programs, providing enabling technology for initiatives to promote airspace efficiency and improve air navigation services.
