PolarSat Inc.  is pleased to announce, together with their teammate BAY-SAT Engineering and Technologie GmbH of Germany, the supply of PolarSat’s StreamView® Open Network Management System (NMS) to the Sudan Civil Aviation Authority (SCAA).  The NMS was specifically designed for providing overview and control in Air Traffic Control (ATC) communication networks, incorporating transparent management of different communication networks, such as VSAT, VHF radio and Terrestrial Fiber, on the same platform.

The NMS upgrade is combining the view to all elements of SCAA’s total traffic control communications network, which represents a strategic element within their vision to provide high reliable IP based Air Traffic Control system.

“This step shows the BAY-SAT commitment to provide industry leading ATC IP technology solutions for this very important ATC customer, and builds on BAY-SAT’s proven track record in the ATC market. Combined with the ATC technical solution partner PolarSat, we provide our customers with ongoing improvements to their in-service Air Traffic Control (ATC) communication networks ”, said Joachim H.-Kaiser, CEO of BAY-SAT.

The PolarSat NMS conforms to the ICAO performance based communications concept.  With industry standard Key Performance Indicators built into the system the PolarSat NMS drives continuous performance improvements to the overall network operation and performance.   Automating tracking and reporting of Uptime, Throughput, Latency, and Mean time to resolve critical issues brings a new level of insight into the performance of the network and quantify how much operational changes improve KPI performance.   “The Civil Aviation Authority of Sudan is happy with the excellent collaboration with the BAY-SAT/PolarSat team that has led to taking the next step to continue to drive overall performance ATC improvements”, said Mr. Elemam Ahmed Khedir, leading Manager from SCAA’s Systems and Maintenance Engineering Department.
