Airways is considering replacing its domestic air traffic management system and is seeking registrations of interest (ROI) from potential vendors.
Airways Chief Operating Officer Pauline Lamb says the air navigation service provider has operated an advanced domestic air traffic management system since 2003.
Lamb says, “Airways is now considering options for a new system that will allow us to continually adapt to changes in the aviation industry over the next 20 years. We are interested in speaking with vendors who are focused on the needs of our customers and have the potential to leverage Airways’ significant software development and design capability.”
Air traffic management systems typically have a 15-year life cycle before replacement. Airways’ current system is Lockheed Martin’s Skyline system.
Lamb says Airways is seeking interest from all companies who have the capacity and capability to supply an air traffic management system.
The registrations of interest document is available on the New Zealand government electronic tendering service website - https://www.gets.govt.nz/ExternalIndex.htm
