COMSOFT Advances with Libyan CAA’s Pioneering ATM Project

8 May 2014

LYCAA have taken the next step towards nationwide deployment of COMSOFT’s market-leading AIDA-NG solution and complementary CADAS server after successful Factory Acceptance and Factory Training at the German experts head office in Karlsruhe, Germany. 

The latest successful steps in the project now pave the way for state implementation that will see upgrades to the central site in capital city Tripoli, as well as the delivery of messaging and information management services at remote installations in Mitiga, Misurata, Sebha, and Benina. Further User Agent terminals will be installed at other smaller airports throughout the country. 

LYCAA have been successfully operating COMSOFT’s reliable AIDA-NG and CADAS products since 2004, and the fundamental modernisation will provide LYCAA with an AMHS upgrade including improved NOTAM, OPMET, Briefing and Flight Plan Management facilities, while simultaneously integrating the components in a state-of-the-art AIXM 5.1-based AIM concept.

COMSOFT’s market-leading AMHS solution AIDA-NG and complementary CADAS data terminals installed country-wide will allow the Libyan ANSP to provide improved and enhanced flight safety and to benefit from highly reliable AMHS messaging, along with many other countries in the North African Region. With preparatory activities now underway LYCAA can look forward to the system being rolled out to its final destinations in the course of this year. 

With the lifting of a voluntary European flight ban, agreed to take place in the next few months, and Libyan Airlines proposed major expansion of its route network in Africa and the Far East, the country is set for increased air travel by the middle of the year - highlighting the importance of this part of the ATC modernisation being carried out by COMSOFT.
