Comsoft Success Story Actian Formerly Ingres

  1. 1. SUCCESS STORY Comsoft Actian Ingres Database Actian Ingres Database - the Basis for Europe’s Leading Tracking System In 2009, German Air Traffic Control (DFS) counted more than 2.9 million flights according to Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) in the airspace of the Federal Republic of Germany alone. Air traffic management deploys cutting edge technology to control and regulate whether planes are maintaining the necessary safe distance from one another in controlled airspace,Customer that they are on the right course and flying at the correct altitude and speed. It uses specialComsoft air traffic management systems, instrument landing systems, and radar and navigationIndustry systems to enable fast and accurate processing of huge data volumes, thus ensuring theTravel/Aviation smooth flow of traffic. The wealth of different data processing systems in Europe, has led EUROCONTROL, the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation, to take stepsChallenge towards harmonizing European Air Traffic Management.Highly available accessto the database forbusiness-critical The decision to base ARTAS on the Actian Ingres Databaseapplications Management System has proven successful due to its transactionSolution reliability, high storage capacity, fast data processing, simpleThe Actian Ingres administration and professional support.database - stable, reliableand highly available An initiative to improve European Air Traffic Management In order to create a standardized data processing system for air traffic management in Europe, EUROCONTROL commissioned the development of the ARTAS system (ATM suRveillance Tracker And Server). COMSOFT, a leading provider of Air Traffic Management solutions based in Karlsruhe, Germany, is EUROCONTROL’s industry partner for the ARTAS tracker. ARTAS is a system that creates a recognized air picture from the position data of a broad range of different sources of measured data (such as radars, multilateration systems or ADS-B data sources). The multi-sensor tracking system uses the data from the sensors and provides pilots with the most accurate and up-to-the-minute picture of the current air situation. This enables air traffic controllers to monitor the exact position of aircraft, ensuring optimum control and safety of airspace. COMSOFT was tasked with the continuous development and improvement of the ARTAS system. ARTAS - ATM Surveillance Tracker & Server ARTAS is now the most commonly used tracking system in Europe. 30 European air traffic control organizations have deployed the solution for civilian and military air traffic control, such as Austrocontrol in Austria, DFS in Germany, DSNA in France, NAVIAIR in Denmark and ATSA in Bulgaria.
