Tern Systems and NG Aviation join forces and strengthen their partnership, connecting system capabilities and enabling the newest generation of digital, aeronautical data-driven ATM systems. Magnús Már Þórðarson, CEO of Tern Systems, and Marek Franko, CEO and Co-Founder of NG Aviation, amicably signed a cooperative agreement on the first day of Airspace World in Geneva.

With rising traffic, a challenging aeronautical information environment and more complex infrastructure than ever, it is apparent there is a need for an efficient transition in digitising aeronautical information. Reliable management of aeronautical information and provision of data services is critical to the future development of ATM systems. In addition, the reality of direct data flow between AIM to ATM systems is now entering a new phase of use by Air Navigation Service Providers. Upcoming ATM and CNS infrastructure demands increased automation of processes, support of digital data and enhanced data connectivity by introducing IP-distributed networking and supporting network-centric structures.

Tern Systems and NG Aviation’s cooperation aims to deliver smart solutions for Air Traffic Control that will support safety and automation, removing unnecessary data manipulation and enhancing the capabilities of ATM systems significantly. Together, their ATM expertise, innovative approach, capabilities in AIM and data creation in native AIXM 5.x will meet the Common Project One requirement for ATM systems: to have the capacity to use the SWIM-based aeronautical information exchange.

We attended the annual Framadagar (co-hosted with Isavia ANS), an important networking event in cooperation with Reykjavík University. It's an important day to connect the top Icelandic companies and students. We promoted our products (Polaris ICE, Orion 3D Tower, and Orion Driver), including the chance to try our ultra-realistic driving simulator.

One of the main objectives was to share our participation in summer internships and research opportunities for those who are looking for a thesis subject. We came across students from a variety of studies such as computer science, engineering, business, and technical artistry where many were interested to gain experience in the air traffic management domain.

Our collaborative stand with Isavia ANS was received well and complimented by visitors from past years. Our partnership made it easier to showcase what we do as software developers of air traffic control systems and how a company like Isavia ANS uses our products to control their air space.

*Takk fyrir síðast (Thank you for last time, in Icelandic). The first-ever Airspace World event in Geneva was a huge success and we have all the attendees at our stand to thank. We appreciate everyone's time to meet, view demos, enjoy parties and experience flying over Vatnajökull (the largest glacier in Europe) with our VR headset. We look forward to seeing you all again next year to continue strengthening our presence in the domain. Get in touch and follow us on LinkedIn to stay up to date with our activities, milestones, and more.

Meet us at Stand F7! We are excited to confirm that alongside Isavia ANS, we will be exhibiting at the first-ever Airspace World event in Geneva, Switzerland. Our flagship product, Polaris ATM system, and Orion Simulator and Training will be showcased so you can see our products first hand.

Polaris ATM is an all-new system designed for the digital-native generation, incorporating the latest technologies to accommodate upcoming capabilities—modular and designed to adapt to unique operational needs.

Orion Simulator is a suite of solutions designed for Air Traffic Management training. Orion is a family of products which work together to reduce the expertise and labour required to conduct valuable ATCO training.
