m-click.aero and Human-Factors-Consult cooperation

8. Mar. 2017

m-click.aero GmbH and HFC Human-Factors-Consult GmbH will cooperate in order to provide state of the art situational awareness services for aeronautical traffic management in multiple airport control.

The companies will team up to combine m-click.aero’s expertise in the area of SWIM enabled aeronautical data integration, processing and delivery with HFC’s unique multi-airport control assistance MasterMAN®. With MasterMAN® HFC develops an innovative strategy and optimization tool, which supports air traffic and staff planning in multi-airport control operations. m-click.aero will provide the respective data integration and processing.

This collaboration comes at a crucial time considering that already in 2015 the Swedish ANSP LFV is the first worldwide who perform Remote Tower Services. With the extension of LFV’s Remote Tower Center in February 2017, LFV can remotely control three additional airports from Sundsvall. During this spring, two airports will be connected and remotely controlled from Sundsvall.

The German air navigation service provider DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung equip Saarbrücken Airport with a remote tower solution. The go-live is planned for 2017, with the airports in Erfurt and Dresden to follow. All three airports will be operated remotely from a remote tower center located at Leipzig Tower. Main goal of DFS is to centralize multiple tower operations in this single remote tower center and to maximize the efficient use of the tower controllers.

In Europe alone, there are more than 240 small and regional airports with a traffic density between 100.000 and 2.000.000 passengers per year. This level of traffic density is appropriate for remote control operation and promises the largest efficiency benefits when applying Multi-Airport control.

To control several airports remotely by only one air traffic controller is the next step of development and becomes more and more apparent.

m-click’s Aeronautical Data Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) solution integrates aviation data seamlessly across applications, processes and systems, quickly and cost-effectively – on premise, in the cloud and between aviation stakeholders. It supports open standards such as OGC and SWIM and therefore the interoperability between aviation formats and standards.

Consolidated aviation data provided by m-click.aero help out to to monitor the aviation traffic management process, providing a comprehensive data basis for collaborative decision making and improving situational awareness in the congested Europa’s airspace.
