~ Real-time situational awareness over aircraft & ground vehicle movements
~Further strengthens safety & efficiency of operations


The Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) managed by GVK Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) successfully operationalized ALTYS Technologies’ airport surface surveillance solution, SAGA, for operational safety and efficiency. The technology was under testing since November 2017

Mr Rajeev Jain, CEO – MIAL, said, “As one of the world’s leading airports, Mumbai Airport has always embraced technological innovations to provide passengers a seamless experience. The operationalisation of SAGA will further enhance safety through real-time monitoring of aircraft and vehicle movements at the operational areas. Operating Mumbai Airport is a huge responsibility and technological innovation aids in operating it with efficiency and enhanced safety.”

“One of the main reasons of this successful implementation is that ALTYS worked closely alongside key personnel at MIAL throughout the requirements analysis, design process and preliminary evaluation phase to ensure the solution responds effectively and extensively to the end-users’ needs” said Kanaan Abdo, ALTYS’s CTO.

Together with the deployment of an airport surface and terminal area surveillance infrastructure, SAGA provides the airport operator with real-time situational awareness over aircraft and ground vehicles movements, improving safety and efficiency of operations, in all weather conditions and peak traffic hours.

The SAGA provides MIAL with detailed insight into operational performance, with a number of advanced statistical reports and alarm features. It calculates and automatically updates the AODB with a number of A-CDM KPIs, such as actual landing times, in-block and off-block times, taxi times, Runway Occupancy Times of individual aircraft, and many more. It also includes a replay mode for incident investigation.

SAGA’s modern software architecture allows easy configuration of multiple user profiles that can be displayed simultaneously enabling it to be easily distributed over both JCC working positions and management positions with different features.

ALTYS is pleased to announce the signature of an agreement with EUROCONTROL regarding the joint ownership and licensing of the COSMOS solution. This agreement, effective September 6th, 2017, will on one side allow EUROCONTROL to operate the monitoring of the VHF datalink infrastructure in the European airspace in accordance with the European Commission request and on the other side allow ALTYS to commercialize the solution worldwide.

COSMOS is a full monitoring platform that provides visibility over VDL Mode 2 and ATN/OSI traffics and allows CPDLC performance analysis through the provision of real-time Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and statistics, for example in support of the requirements in the European Commission regulation 310/2015 amending Regulation No 29/2009 on data link services for the Single European Sky.

“With this agreement, EUROCONTROL continues to show strong support for the supervision and monitoring of datalink communications infrastructure in European airspace,” says Alexandre Simonin, CEO of ALTYS Technologies. “We are proud that EUROCONTROL has renewed its confidence in ALTYS’s expertise and in our ability to provide the best quality monitoring solution.”

ALTYS Technologies is pleased to announce it has signed a cooperation agreement with Japan Radio Co., Ltd. (JRC). This agreement officially launches a strategic effort between the two companies to co-develop and market an advanced surface movement guidance and control system (A-SMGCS) integrating a second-generation multilateration system.

JRC and ALTYS combine their expertise to provide customers with an A-SMGCS solution offering the highest possible levels of quality, performance, and cost-effectiveness. JRC provides its OPTIMUS solution – a 2nd generation multilateration system – fully integrated with the SAGA A-SMGCS solution from ALTYS. SAGA includes a dynamic surveillance display and a traffic replay capability for training, troubleshooting, or investigation activities.

Multilateration (MLAT) has been used for aircraft positioning in the airport and ATC industry for many years. However, the phenomenon of multipath interference, in which one signal is received from the same object via multiple paths due to wave reflection or distortion, can cause inaccurate position reporting. The 2nd generation OPTIMUS MLAT technology developed by JRC provides affordable means to correct this inevitable phenomenon, thus vastly improving the accuracy of aircraft and vehicle positioning as compared with traditional MLAT technology.

SAGA, the A-SMGCS solution developed by ALTYS, is a multi-function platform allowing multiple simultaneous user connections. It provides 24/7 visibility of aircraft and vehicle movements, as well as a wide range of statistics to support decision-making. The system also proves to be one of the fastest on the market, with excellent responsiveness, aka very low detection-to-display latency. SAGA’s various features and the wealth of information it provides make it a contributor to the airport collaborative decision making (A-CDM) environment.

“We are proud to confirm our collaboration with JRC, a renowned leader in the provision of radio communications and navigation systems,” says Alexandre Simonin, CEO of ALTYS Technologies. “We are eager to bring the SAGA-OPTIMUS solution to the airport and air traffic control market, as the combination of these systems truly results in a breakthrough innovation. Together with JRC we will respond to the growing need for a high-precision, low-cost surface movement surveillance solution.”
