Combitech, part of the defence and security group Saab AB, has won a contract to supply a digital automated terminal information service system (D-ATIS) and ATIS to Stockholm Arlanda, Bromma Stockholm, Göteborg Landvetter and Malmö Sturup airports in Sweden.
The contract also includes an option for the supply of D-ATIS and ATIS to four additional airports. It was awarded following a competitive tender process.
The D-ATIS/ATIS systems for air navigation services can generate ATIS messages simultaneously for data link transmission alongside high-quality synthetic voice ATIS broadcasts. The provision of ATIS messages via data link allows pilots with ACARS-equipped aircraft to easily and quickly retrieve the necessary weather information prior to initial contact with the air traffic control. The new D-ATIS/ATIS systems will be integrated with the airports’ existing AWOS systems, which were also supplied by Combitech. - January 2017
