At the end of November, DFS Aviation Services (DAS) and the Dutch air navigation service provider LVNL signed a multi-year framework agreement for the further development of the PHOENIX ATM system. The aim of the project is to further develop and maintain the PHOENIX systems that are being used and implemented by LVNL, specifically the integral backup system for enroute and approach in the Amsterdam center.
The contract includes the functional enhancements of the systems, adaptations to the LVNL environment and maintenance and repairs. PHOENIX is already used in regional and military towers in the Netherlands, as a last resort system in the Amsterdam center, and in the future as a contingency system for Amsterdam center.
“PHOENIX is an integral part of our system strategy and we are happy to have DAS as an innovative and reliable partner,” emphasizes Marcel Bakker, General Manager Systems & Infrastructure.
“We are proud of the very good cooperation with LVNL and look forward to continuing to support them,” says Andreas Pötzsch, Managing Director DAS.
The two air navigation service providers have been working together for many years in various fields, for example in the area of training and for the ATM system Arrival Manager that is used by LVNL at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
