Isavia and LFV agree on unified technical platform for aeronautical information services
At the end of 2018, Isavia signed a service agreement with LFV, Air Navigations Services of Sweden, for access to new software and solutions for Aeronautical Information Services (AIS). The agreement involves collaboration between service providers in Iceland, Sweden and Denmark for a common solution called L-CAPS, LFV-Comprehensive AIM Production Service, that will increase economy and efficiency.
In recent years, Isavia has been working on meeting new requirements for improved quality of aeronautical data and aeronautical information. The agreement is based on LFV´s invitation to tender issued within the European Economic Area and IDS, Ingegneria Dei Sistemi, is the manufacturer of the software.
As a result of the agreement, AIS will replace all their systems, including:
- Flight procedure design
- NOTAM (Notice to Airmen)
- Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP)
“The agreement also includes training of employees. The solution is intended to achieve viable operations, increase production capacity and enable Isavia to fulfil new regulations,” says Haraldur Ólafsson, Manager ATS, AIS, MET at Isavia.
“The benefit of more ANSP working together is a more efficient development process in terms of cost and time, efficient application management, contingency planning as well as safety and security aspects,” says Anna Helena Wåhlin, Head of Operations, LFV.
The work has already begun. In January LFV and IDS visited Isavia to familiarise themselves with conditions, speak with the employees of Isavia and to analyse the need of the company.
