Maximising the benefits of digitalisation in ATM
Boosting the digitalisation of ATM is now more important than ever.
CANSO was delighted to host this webinar that looked at how digitalisation improves financial and operational efficiency and makes it easier to manage fluctuations in business.
Experts from Indra, Avinor Air Navigation Services and ENAIRE shared their insights on a range topics regarding the digital transformation of ATM technologies. These included:
- Why integration should be the next step in the digitalization of tower systems, and how this has been one of the success factors for the world’s largest remote tower project.
- How technologies such as virtualization and WAN remote displays, together with the improved speed and reliability of digital communications, make possible to fully decouple the processing servers from the operation rooms, and how ATM architectures must provide a comprehensive response to cybersecurity threats. We will go through voice communications, as an essential part to the safety and efficiency of our airspace and why voice technology and switching systems designed in the last century must be upgraded to succeed in the digitalization of ATM.
- How Airport Mapping Data and Digital NOTAM information related to relevant airport events can be shared through SWIM in compliance with the Pilot Common Project.

Integrating digital and remote tower systems
David J. Roberts, Indra and Torbjørn Henriksen, Avinor Air Navigation Services
Most tower systems are now digitalised, so what do we do next to further improve cost and operational efficiencies? This session looks at why and how integration of digital tower systems is the natural next step, and how system integration has been one of the success factors for Avinor Air Navigation Services’ pioneering remote tower project.
Indra voice IP solutions

Voice communications are essential to the safety and efficiency or our airspace. However, the voice technology and switching systems designed in the last century must be upgraded to ]succeed in the digitalisation of ATM, which is deemed mandatory to cope with the COVID -19 pandemic.
Virtualisation ATM and cybersecurity
José María Caro, Indra Sistemas
In line with the virtual centre concept defined by SESAR, technologies such as virtualisation and WAN remote displays, and the improved speed and reliability of digital communications, make it possible to fully decouple the processing servers from the operations rooms.
Business continuity must be adapted to the new context, where redundancy is not enough. ATM architectures must provide a comprehensive response to cybersecurity threats.
Digital NOTAM and SWIM
Michal Kadlec and Tsvetan Penev, Indra Avitech
A look at how they are capturing airport events as digital NOTAM, based on airport mapping data, and sharing those through system wide information management (SWIM) interfaces. The beginnings of a long overdue disruption of a 70 year old service and relevant developments in Europe.
