Airways Annual Report 2019

increase safety and efficiency, including medium and long-term conflict alerting, time-based separation and arrival and departure management tools. In collaboration with Leidos, we have successfully completed three of the four software builds for the new platform. Some of the new technology is being introduced into our current platform and will support easier migration into the new system.   A key feature of our new ATM platform is a new $7 million IP based voice communications system, providing controllers with air-to-ground and ground- to-ground voice communications. Moving from a radio-based system to a fully digitised one, developed by Rohde and Schwarz, is critical to enabling Airways to operate across two centres in Auckland and Christchurch, as well as 19 control towers.
