Using a cloud-based system, the company aim to remove the need for new installations of technology hardware to give their customers flexibility for cost-management while meeting the ICAO AIM to SWIM transition requirements.

“Aeronautical information management is quickly changing the way the aviation industry operates, with a new focus on the whole information picture rather than the provision of standard products. This joint venture offers support to regions, states, airports and airlines needing to improve their data distribution and to meet the new ICAO standards,” said Mr Heinz-Michael Kraft, CEO of GroupEAD Europe.

Leading advanced information management (AIM) providers, such as ARINC, can help to streamline airport operations and give operational agility to operators, airports and airlines with cost efficient solutions for the management of data, mission critical messaging and other communications solutions.

As airports move towards more cost oriented operations management, AIM solutions can help to create a secure, reliable platform that facilitates swift access to vital security data while maintaining the stringent standards set by governing agencies.

Find out more about Airline Information ManagementIn support of the Single European Sky initiative, plans have been announced by NATS, British air navigation service provider (ANSP) and Avinor, a Norwegian equivalent, to share an aeronautical information management system. The plan is a vital step forward in the Borealis Alliance of ANSPs that will look to share operational information and the association provision costs with airlines and airports across Europe.

A remotely hosted system, accessed over a secure web portal, will provide common use tools and applications that will support all the core functions for operations.

Advanced Information Management systems bring mission critical transmissions and messaging within a secure, reliable network that is easily accessible to those who need it. As airlines, airports and other partners look for ways to manage information and reduce costs, AIM systems are adaptable and offer a scalable solution for widespread improvements.

NATS head of information, Andrew Sage said, “Our joint procurement has already saved both Avinor and NATS, as members of the Borealis Alliance, considerable resource and capital investment.  It clearly signals the desire for ANSPs to collaborate as partners, motivated by business drivers, and achieve the aims of the Single European Sky.”

Head of technical and aeronautical information management at Avinor, Torunn Carlsson said, “The new system will help us improve efficiency in the IAIP production chain, and give us the opportunity to provide more and better value added information management services.”

Advanced Information Management Systems ProvidersAviation access management solutions are essential to maintain seamless access control within airports and secure facilities and the marketplace welcomes the latest expansion from Global Elite Group (GEG) this week. Secure Swipe is a portable hand-held unit that utilises a bar code, magnetic strip and RFID reader.

 “Aviation management requires a critical eye to identify where vulnerabilities are, that must be addressed. Having a unit which tracks and records where workers go will accomplish this goal,” said William McGuire, president & CEO of GEG.

The system, specifically designed for the aviation industry, adds a level of mobile security to a platform that improves basic entry security, including outside entry points with documented activity and serves as a guard tour to record an operator’s location.

Comprehensive aviation security is critical on many levels and access management solutions bring a layer of reliability to monitoring the in and outflow of airport staff. Access management solutions providers can enhance overall operational productivity and help to manage costs within the airport infrastructure.

airport security Indmex Aviation and OPEN Inc have collaborated to offer an integrated solution for airport situational awareness and incident response, it has been announced today.

The companies will provide runway incursion warnings and a records information management system for airport first responders and hope to initiate integrated airport EMS incident response systems.

Scott Streicher, Operations Director for OPEN, the creators of SafetyPAD for Emergency Medical Services, which is already used by Fire and EMS teams at some of the worlds busiest airports, said “After speaking with airport operations directors and airport emergency responders, it was clear to us that there is an unmet need for solutions that solve ongoing challenges at airports resulting from increased operations by both aircraft and vehicles on the airport surface. With the INDMEX partnership, we will be able to fulfil that demand.”

The solution is hoped to boost security and accountability for airport personnel with vehicle and personnel tracking and can be deployed over a range of mobile devices.
