New air navigation communication system operational

WILLEMSTAD The Dutch Caribbean Air Navigation Service Provider (DC-ANSP) – previously NAATC – successfully put the Aeronautical Message Handling System (AMHS) in operation, according to the company IDS Ubitech Technologies Inc.

The system is used for the so-called ‘Notices To Arimen’ (Notan) or messages to the flyers, the flight planning or passing on meteorological data.

“IDS Ubitech Technologies is proud to announce that DC-ANSP successfully switched to the AMHS-system. The air traffic control has already implemented the new system that is in direct contact with the communication center of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)”, said Dan Wilson from IDS/Ubitech.

He stated this is the beginning of a busy period in the Caribbean area, considering the company received another three orders.

“We’ll be supplying three AMHS-systems to St. Maarten, Jamaica and the Bahamas. The test phase for individual connection to the system with the FAA is planned for all four countries. The aim is to accomplish this before the end of 2012 and create a permanent link with the FAA.” IDS/Ubitech provides services all over the world and its exit base is Ottawa, Canada. “Ottawa, also known as the ‘Silicon Valley North’, is a hot spot for development of high-quality technologies, certainly in the field of innovative telecommunication. Our products and services are ISO 9001:2000 certified.” The company is an active participant with international entities within the aviation sector, such as ICAO, Eurocontrol, Canso, Iata, Atca, Ifatca, FAA and Ifatsea
