ALES debuted its electronic flight strip system, which is operated with a touch-pen on an interactive display, at the 2019 World ATM Congress in Madrid on 12–14 March.
The company said the product was developed as a direct response to demand from civil and military customers for digital technology in place of conventional paper strips. It is designed to accept flight plan data via aeronautical fixed telecommunications network (AFTN)/aeronautical message-handling system (AMHS), and On-Line Data Interchange (OLDI)/ATS Interfacility Data Communication (AIDC). It can also be interfaced with arrival/departure management systems.
The solution is part of a suite of air traffic control solutions developed by ALES that includes controller workstations, ATC consoles, and simulators.
