Russian manufacturer NITA reports the successful commissioning of the automated air traffic management (ATM) system at Krasnoyarsk Consolidated Centre in Siberia.

Krasnoyarsk is one of 13 consolidated ATM centres being developed to replace the existing 80 area control centres in Russia, under a nationwide programme to modernise the Russian Federal ATM system by 2020. Krasnoyarsk is the third project implemented by NITA, and follows previous work completed in Magadan and Samara.

NITA is also tasked with the supply of consolidated ATM centres in Tyumen, Yekaterinburg, and Novosibirsk. These projects are well advanced and commissioning is planned to be finished within a two-year period.

Additionally, NITA supplies subsystems for communications, data recording, and console equipment to additional consolidated ATM centres. To date, these include Moscow, Khabarovsk, and Irkutsk.

Krasnoyarsk Consolidated ATM Centre is responsible for an area that covers approximately 8 million km 2 over territory that stretches from Siberia to the Arctic Ocean. Surveillance data is sourced from 40 radar sites and 35 Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) stations.

The ALPHA-5 ATC System from NITA complies with ICAO and Eurocontrol requirements and recommendations. It is designed to undertake planning, monitoring, and control functions. Multiple functions are incorporated for effective airspace management, including short-term conflict alert, medium-term conflict detection, separation awareness, minimum safe altitude warning, air proximity warning, and monitoring aids. The system also supports arrival and departure management, and electronic message exchange with adjacent centres using the online data interchange (OLDI) protocol. It features CORA and TCT functions to support controller decision-making in complex traffic situations.

NITA also equipped Krasnoyarsk with the PLANETA-5 flight data processing system, the MEGAPHONE VCSS voice communication subsystem, and the latest version of its GRANIT-6 data recording complex. Comprising more than 50 controller working positions, the centre features an upgraded version of NITA's console equipment, designed to provide greater layout flexibility.
