the ATM Open Source Community
SkySoft-ATM’s vision is to offer more vendor independence to customers and easier access to technology to small and medium size airports and centers in emerging markets.
While SESAR is calling for better systems interoperability and FAB projects are materializing in Europe, Open Source systems in ATM can, de facto, offer ANSP’s more transparency when interfacing with systems, as well as a smoother integration.
The Albatross Community is widely open to receiving input and contributions from stakeholders in the industry, institutions, and universities. We are actively seeking to have a very close relationship with ANSPs to deliver operations-targeted solutions.
Safety will not be compromised in any way, and stringent processes will be enforced in the software production and certification cycle to make sure that International Safety standards, such as ESARR6, are respected.
These are the guidelines of our Open Source approach. An in-depth description is provided in the attached white paper.
