    Information Systems

    Modern and safe air traffic control combines communication and decision technology with the information needed to support and execute quick and right decisions.

    Frequentis offers customisable information systems that deliver and display information in the most efficient and safe way for the users.

    Our solutions draw on the experience and expertise that saw a Frequentis-led team develop the world’s largest Aeronautical Information System (EAD) for EUROCONTROL.

    With a growing variety of tower information flows, tasks and input systems, the possibility for human error increases accordingly. Inefficient work areas become cluttered with multiple screens and devices.

    Frequentis tower automation systems solve the problem with a set of tower and airport tools (TAPtools) covering all required systems from electronic flight strips to lighting control.

    These tools integrate with each other and third-party products through a standard user interface, designed to give control back to the operator.
