Altran helps NATS to develop real-time flight efficiency tool

Altran has helped long-standing client NATS to develop a new Flight Optimisation System, or ‘FLOSYS’, which takes real radar data, updated every three minutes, and combines it with NATS’ 3Di airspace efficiency metric to produce a graphical representation of every flight in UK airspace.

FLOSYS has been developed by the NATS innovation centre, SPACE, together with Altran UK and Lockheed Martin, and with input from the operational ATC community at both NATS’ Swanwick and Prestwick centres. The initial roll out is at Swanwick, before moving to Prestwick Centre next year.
