Estonia enhances air situation picture as tourism rises


The Air Navigation Service Provider of Estonia (EANS) has successfully completed installation of advanced ARTAS, increasing the surveillance accuracy of their airspace and supporting increased traffic volume in the region.

ARTAS is EUROCONTROL’s ATM Surveillance Tracker, using the latest tracking technologies to provide exceptional accuracy and reliability in data output. Designed to establish an accurate air situation picture over a well-defined geographical area and distribute the relevant surveillance information to a community of user systems, ARTAS is now one of the most advanced and well-established data processing and distribution systems in the world.

COMSOFT have provided the turnkey supply of ARTAS to Estonia, along with its Network Management System (CNMS), for early error detection and troubleshooting. Once fully operational COMSOFT’s next generation of Surveillance Data Distribution System (SDDS-NG) will also provide advanced data exchange of surveillance information over an IP-based network.

Tanel Rautits, CEO of EANS said: “Familiarity with COMSOFT’s expertise ensured us of their reliability and this was further demonstrated during the swift and successful ARTAS factory testing, completed in record time in October.  Completing the installation of ARTAS has prepared us for upcoming surveillance infrastructure upgrade and will provide heightened surveillance capabilities in the near future, while improving flight safety and the quality of our services.”

COMSOFT and EANS have worked together since 2009 when the Estonian ANSP chose the German expert’s electronic Aeronautical Information Publishing (eAIP) solution. Subsequent extension projects included the addition of electronic input forms (eIF) and the supply of CADAS-AIS, which further aided EANS information management enhancements.
