Replacement AAA ATC System by iCAS system

Led by LVNL (2017 - 2021)

In 2011, after an analysis of the alternatives for replacement, LVNL initially chose to co-operate with the German air traffic control organisation Deutsche Flugsicherung-DFS. The system under development is known under the name of iCAS: iTEC based Centre Automation System. The iTEC-development, together with the Spanish supplier Indra, was started by the air traffic control organisations of Germany, Great Britain and Spain. LVNL was the fourth organization to join this partnership. In the meantime also Avinor from Norway and PANSA (Poland) and Oro Navigacija (Lithuania) have joined.

Project description

The LVNL AAA air traffic control system is by far the most important and largest operational information system of LVNL. Replacement of this system is necessary because it is out of date and cannot implement the European SESAR requirements cost-efficiently.
End 2020 iCAS must be operational in Munich, followed by Bremen and Amsterdam at the end of 2021. For a controlled transition, including training of air traffic controllers who start using the system, the systems must be available about two years before these dates.
