The ENAV Group ensures the operation of all the technological infrastructure necessary to provide air navigation services. The project activities are integrated with international standardisation and evolution processes and with numerous joint projects with other air navigation service providers

The ATM platforms are the set of systems for processing and presentation of information required by ATCs (Air Traffic Controllers), enabling them to manage air traffic planning and control operations in ACCs and airports.

The software performs the following tasks: accurate and clear tracking of flights across the airspace and on the ground, Flight Data Processing (predicts expected flight trajectories), generates alarms in the event of  expected under-separation, supports optimal and direct flight planning, provides access to all meteorological information and regarding availability of airspace, taxiways and runways, through straightforward and easy-to-use interfaces.

ENAV has always been at the forefront in developing advanced ATM platforms. The current one, SATCAS (Standard Air Traffic Control Automated System), in use since 1999, was one of the first in Europe to support fully electronic forecasting and dissemination of information in the control room and coordination among the ATCs in ACCs and between ACCs and airports.

The platform has recently been modernised to address the developments in operations and regulations. The latest updates have enabled Free-Route operations above 30,500 feet in the skies over Italy and the so-called “Data Link” operations (i.e. the sending of messages between controllers and pilots in place of voice communications).

In order to support greater capacity and fluidity of traffic some new automation components are being implemented. ERATO (En-Route Air Traffic Organizer), a tool developed by ENAV and DSNA, which integrates new functions to help ATCs to identify and manage potential medium term traffic conflicts.

In order to support greater traffic capacity and fluidity, the ERATO tool (En-Route Air Traffic Organizer), developed in collaboration with the French ANSP (DSNA), has been implemented in the 4 ACCs, which integrates innovative functions to assist controllers. of air traffic in identifying and managing potential medium-term traffic conflicts.
