Myanmar modernises air traffic management to tackle 55% surge in flight volume

21 October 2015

The Department of Civil Aviation of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar (DCA) has contracted local subsidiary COMSOFT – CARPE DIEM Ltd to modernise their Aeronautical Information Management (AIM) infrastructure in light of increasing air traffic, essential airspace optimisation and the crucial changeover from Aeronautical Information Services (AIS).

Air traffic in Myanmar has risen dramatically, with an increase of 55 per cent between 2005 and 2012 and, according to a report by Director Air Navigation Safety Regulation of Myanmar, U Tike Aung, has created a need for increased capacity to minimise delays and maintain safety.  By migrating all AIS into a harmonised, digital data presentation the integrity and consistency of aeronautical information is dramatically increased while the efforts for the service delivery are reduced.

In the first phase of the project, taking place later this year, the AIS Office in Myanmar will receive a complete solution to migrate all information into a consistent, electronic data presentation, consisting of COMSOFT’s Aeronautical Information Management Database – CADAS-AIMDB, and electronic publication solution – CADAS-EPS.  The project will also include two Charting workstations, six AIS Flight Data Terminals and two Pilot Briefing workstations.

CADAS-AIMDB is a fully featured AIXM 5.1 Database, which implements the temporality model as defined in version 5 of AIXM. It is designed to serve as a base for integrating AIM applications and components such as electronic AIP, Charting, or Procedure Design. Another major asset in the transition from AIS to AIM is CADAS-EPS, a collaborative document management system specially designed for electronic aeronautical information publications (eAIP), including amendments, supplements and circulars, with an integrated and easy-to-manage eAIP production environment, single-click publication and seamless interoperation with legacy systems.
