MoD to start using iFACTS for military air traffic control

Altran sends its congratulations to NATS on agreeing a deal with the Ministry of Defence that will see UK military air traffic controllers equipped with iFACTS, the suite of tools developed by NATS that allow controllers to see aircraft trajectories up to 18 minutes in advance, while reducing workload and improving safety.

Altran developed the new software for iFACTS. The software had to meet SW01, the stringent safety regulation required by the UK's Civil Aviation Authority. Altran continues to work in close partnership with NATS on a range of strategic projects.
