Measures to Strengthen Aviation Security in Nigeria Called for by NAMA
The head of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), has called for new measures to strengthen the country’s systems and processes for Air Traffic Management (ATM) and physical airports security, with surveillance as a priority.
Mr Abdulsalam has called upon airspace management at the Airspace Managers’ Forum recently held in Kaduna State, to upscale vigilance over the holiday period, when traffic inevitably increases.
Recently, the country’s airspace management teams have worked towards the digitalisation of air traffic control with the implementation of additional towers, ADS-C and Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) to address the next-generation global standards for air traffic management.
CPDLC standards are being globally addressed to provide a unification of flight deck communications in order to raise the quality of messaging and ultimately strengthen safety.
