Cote d’Ivoire, Central African Republic, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Cameroon, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and Comoros will all benefit from the most advanced upgrade of their outdated legacy AFTN (aeronautical fixed telecom network) messaging service with a fully integrated SITA/AFTN/AMHS messaging technology, which allows the harmonised operation of all messaging services in one application.

 

In addition, the delivered systems provide new major functionalities incorporating the AMHS/SOAP gateway and ICAO FPL/FIXM and TAC/iWXXM converters. This will enable ASECNA to smoothly migrate to new technologies for reporting weather information and a future SWIM-based environment.

 

“We are pleased to be adding ASECNA to our list of AMHS customer, bringing modern airspace communications to the region. Frequentis Comsoft’s is proud to be continuously adding to the 65already satisfied AMHS customers worldwide, proving that the quality and reliability of our AMHS system is well recognised in the industry. We look forward to enhancing message handling for ASECNA,” said Thomas Hoffmann, Frequentis Comsoft managing director.
