Transforming UK Ministry of Defence air traffic services
Aquila is working in partnership with the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) to transform the ground air traffic management at airfields in the UK and overseas.
Aquila is leading the £1.5 billion programme to upgrade and support the MOD’s terminal air traffic management capability over the 22 year partnership.
The new systems will provide additional features and an improved user experience to improve the control of aircraft during landing, take off and manoeuvre around the airfield.
As part of Programme Marshall, Aquila provides day-to-day service availability for military air traffic control. Aquila engineers support all UK military terminal ATM systems worldwide.
Aquila also provides simulation and training support for military air traffic controllers to prepare them for safe operations.
New centralised control room functionality in each region, together with smart product management and consolidated support is expected to save the UK defence budget approximately £1 billion.
