Frequentis has been selected by LVNL (Air Traffic Control the Netherlands) to deploy a tower system in accordance with the Pilot Common Project (PCP) regulations driving the SESAR deployment, thereby replacing and upgrading existing systems and delivering the company’s electronic flight strips system. The contract involves a development partnership for up to 25 years, ensuring LVNL is able to deploy the required ATM functions supporting airport integration and throughput.
The current tower system of LVNL is used in all the three towers of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol – the central tower, tower West and the emergency tower.
The current LVNL tower systems will be replaced with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products. Frequentis will also provide its electronic flight strips system “smartSTRIPS”. Replacing paper strips, this paves the way for further automation and providing improved situational awareness for controllers.
