The company is providing ADS-B systems to both Avinor of Norway and the U.K.'s NATS for deployment on oil platforms in the North Sea, with the NATS project near completion. It has also won a contract awarded by Denmark's Naviair, for ADS-B stations in Greenland and the Faroe Islands that will serve as links in a North Atlantic ADS-B corridor.
Meanwhile, Saab Sensis is helping pioneer new ATM technology in the form of remotely operated control towers. Saab was already deeply involved in this program before it acquired Sensis, which now oversees this business.
LFV has purchased a Saab remote tower system, which allows small airport operations to be controlled from a central location. The system passed site acceptance tests in December, and the final certification process began in late February.
The remote tower should be operational this summer, and will be the world's first certified system of its type. Norway will not be far behind with certification of its own system, Viggiano says. Saab has also sold this technology for trials by Airservices Australia.
