Atech presents SkyFlow at the ATM Congress

The system, operating in India, can integrate data of airlines, airports and control organizations in one single database

March 7, 2017

SkyFlow is one of the highlights of Atech, a company of the Embraer Group, at the ATM Congress in Madrid, Spain, from March 7 to 9. Acquired by the Airports Authority of India (AAI), the system is already in operation with the purpose of improving the management and control of air traffic flow in that country.

Atech's system for air traffic flow management integrates data of air companies, airports and control organizations, among others, providing information on flight plans and situational awareness in airports, which are essential for the optimization of air traffic flow. With this data integration, the system enables air traffic control organizations to balance air capacity and demand in order to ensure the safety of operations and punctuality of flights.

The SkyFlow is a product targeted at the international market and is based on SIGMA (Integrated System for Air Movement Management), a system developed by Atech for the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) currently in operation in the Air Navigation Management Center (CGNA) in the city of Rio de Janeiro. SIGMA places Brazil among the few countries with technological capacity for meeting requirements for large events-which was the case at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games-and thus reinforces the Brazilian strategy of ensuring the country's sovereignty and technological autonomy in that field.
