RO-FDPS operational at Gannet ATS Communication Centre

Today the Tern Systems Radio Operator – FDPS became operational at the Gannet ATS Communication Centre (Iceland Radio), Reykjavik. The system is an ATS message handling system specially designed to provide ATS radio operators support for air-ground and ground-ground communications.

The RO-FDPS directly supports AFTN message communication and aids radio operators in the ground-air message delivery and the creation of new AFTN messages. It processes all flight related messages, in addition to weather messages and regional messages such as the North Atlantic Track (NAT) messages.

The RO-FDPS includes a geographical view displaying flights and routes, increasing situational awareness of the Radio Operator.

The RO-FDPS also has a SELCAL encoder, a software module which manages transmission of SELCAL tones. The SELCAL encoder is also available as a standalone product.

The RO-FDPS was successfully installed at 8 Radio Operator workstations, 1 supervisor workstation and 3 training workstations.
