Bayanat airports teams up with Frequentis
Collaboration expected to bring ‘robust and reliable ATM systems to region’
Airport systems integration provider Bayanat Airports Engineering & Supplies (BAES), yesterday announced it has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Frequentis AG covering UAE markets.
BAES will work closely with Frequentis to provide airports with advances in air traffic management (ATM) solutions for both civil and defence markets; airport technology products; tower automation; and aeronautical information management (AIM) systems.
"This collaboration will bring robust and reliable integrated communication and ATM systems to the region, which will be executed in turnkey projects in line with the region's business and commitment to quality," Bayanat said.
"The first fruit of this partnership was the appointment of Frequentis to install a bi-directional flight plan format converter - smartFPLconverter (an FPL2012 Converter) - for Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC), which would enhance the functionality of ADAC's existing flight data processing system by supporting the conversion to and from the new formats."
"Frequentis is a reputed company with a deep commitment to the aviation community and air safety; and a strong focus on innovation," said Alan Bourjeily, general manager, Bayanat Airports Engineering & Supplies LLC.
"The company has applied its decades of experience and expertise in ATM to build scalable products that incorporate state-of-the-art design and technology in robust, reliable, cost-effective solutions. We are happy to partner with Frequentis to offer airports in the UAE with world-class ATM and communication solutions, which will strengthen our product portfolio further. As per our agreement, Frequentis will be involved in BAES' recently awarded build and design projects."
Frequentis develops, builds and installs communication, information and tower automation systems for managing air traffic, which according to Banayat, "support integration with legacy and third-party systems, comply with the very latest standards and protocols, smooth the migration path to the latest IP-based technologies, and contain the flexibility to easily adapt and expand with client needs and industry developments".
"Bayanat Airports is a niche company in the field of Airport Systems integration in the region having successfully deployed major projects," said Paul Mayo, area sales manager, Frequentis.
"We have known Bayanat for many years from the first deployment of Frequentis voice switches for the Emergency Tower at ADIA. While collaborating with Bayanat, we were impressed with their expertise, management skills and wide market knowledge. We have now aligned our strategies and signed this partnership to develop our businesses together. We look forward to working closely with Bayanat Airports to offer airports in the UAE world-class ATM solutions."
