Business news for the stock market

Vienna (pta010/28.07.2020/08:59) - * Aeronautical Message Handling Systems (AMHS) used for processing and transmitting aeronautical messages
* Subsidiary Frequentis Comsoft with strong AMHS competence
* System has been tested and approved in Chile, new order for French overseas territories

Based on a standard for air-to-ground communication of the International Civil Aviation Organization, ICAO (a specialised agency of the United Nations), aviation messages are transmitted and processed in an Aeronautical Message Handling System (AMHS). These "Notice-to-Airmen" (NOTAMs) contain, for instance, flight plans or meteorological data.

The Frequentis Group is the global leader in AMHS, with systems already in use in around 90 countries worldwide. The subsidiary Frequentis Comsoft, based in Karlsruhe, Germany, provides the relevant expertise with its product AIDA-NG.

Current projects confirm the company's strong market position: The French air navigation service provider DSNA has recently opted for an AMHS system from Frequentis Comsoft to further expand airspace communication and fully support the AMHS service profiles of ICAO.

DSNA provides air traffic control services in seven air traffic control centres, two of which are located overseas, in French Polynesia and in French Guiana. The overseas locations New Caledonia, French Guinea, Martinique, Guadeloupe, and La Réunion have already been equipped with an AMHS, the system for French Polynesia Tahiti will come next.

AMHS is also successfully operating in Chile. The Chilean air traffic control is not only responsible for Chile itself, with a length of more than 5,500 km, but also for a large part of the southern Pacific and Antarctic airspace. The improvement of the air traffic services in this region is a major concern - the new system is significantly contributing to the modernisation and extension of these services.

After Colombia, Peru and Venezuela, Chile is the fourth country in the South American region to rely on a Frequentis Comsoft AMHS as its central messaging system.
