Optimizing air navigation services using air-to-ground datalink is key in helping air traffic controllers maintain safety and efficiency, while managing increased traffic movements and avoiding controller-pilot misunderstandings. Effective air-to-ground datalink technology also is required as the benchmark on which to build the future air traffic management (ATM) systems.
For more than 20 years, SITA has been the leading provider of vital data link services to ANSPs around the world, providing ANSPs with a comprehensive set of solutions to optimize air navigation services.
Our datalink services and turnkey air navigation ground solutions enable ANSPs to increase their airspace capacity by implementing easy-to-use datalink applications in en-route and airport environments.
Our solution allows ANSPs to exchange information with the aircraft. It provides improved information and therefore better decision making, such as the ability to know in advance if a flight information region (FIR) on a flight plan has closed or a weather event will impact a planned route.
