Thales enhances presence in the Caribbean by providing Aruba with TopSky-AMHS & TopSky-AIS alongside with Wide Area Multilateration & ATC Training


Thales announces that Air Navigation Services Aruba (ANSA), the air navigation service provider responsible for monitoring and securing the skies over Aruba, an island in Dutch Caribbean, has selected Thales TopSky-AMHS & Thales TopSky-AIS, as well as the implementation of Wide Area Multilateration (MLAT/ADS-B).

The first project includes equipment and training for a complete Aeronautical Message Handling System (AMHS) and Aeronautical Information Services (AIS) which includes flight preparation services and capacity for NOTAM office and Meteo preparation services.

Thales has also been chosen by ANSA to implement Wide Area Multilateration (MLAT/ADS-B) for cooperative surveillance within Aruba’s airspace and increased Air Traffic Management capabilities. This second project will enable ANSA to process surveillance data from sensors and display them on the existing TopSky-ATC system supplied by Thales at the Reina Beatrix International Airport, Aruba.

These projects confirm the long standing partnership with ANSA, which started in 1989 when Thales supplied VOR/ILS/DME. These equipment were modernized in 2004 and in 2011 Aruba renewed its confidence in Thales to supply its TopSky Air Traffic Control Center.

“Thales has always been and is a reliable partner and their commitment to quality is extraordinary. The implementation of the TopSky-AMHS, TopSky-AIS and MLAT/ADS-B projects will help propel Aruba to the next level of safety and efficiency in the benefit of all our airspace users” declared Mr Nilknarf E.I. Kock, CEO of ANSA.

This contract also underlines Thales’s increasing presence in Latin America for ATM solutions following the recent success with Jamaica & COCESNA in 2015 and deployment in Mexico, Dominican Republic and Panama over the last years.
