Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) today announced Turkey’s General Directorate of State Airports Authority (DHMI) selected Harris’ OSYRIS Arrival Manager (AMAN) solution to further improve airport traffic efficiency and flow management for the new Istanbul Grand Airport.

OSYRIS is an integrated suite of arrival, departure and flow management software. The system will adjust the flow of aircraft to most efficiently use available air traffic management resources, such as runways and airspace, and provides arrival sequencing and metering. It also calculates estimated landing times for arrivals based on continuously reported radar, flight plan and weather data as well as estimated flight profiles calculated through trajectory predictions.

The system is an extension of the solution already in place at Istanbul Ataturk Airport and follows the country’s strategy to move operations to the new Istanbul Grand Airport once construction is completed. Supporting the complex Istanbul airspace, which consists of three major airports, AMAN also will provide a new Point Merge System (PMS) for aircraft approach to IGA and Sabiha Gökcen.

“We see firsthand the important role of decision support tools in growing airport and airspace capacities and how our technology is a strong solution for today's crowded air traffic environment,” said Kelle Wendling, vice president and general manager, Harris Mission Networks. “We look forward to continuing our successful collaboration with DHMI to improve airspace and airport operations in Turkey.”

OSYRIS also offers a Departure Manager (DMAN) that provides consistent, optimized planning of airport outbound traffic and optimized target times at the departure runways and the stands, effectively managing departure and ensuring available runway capacity is maximized and additional constraints, such as air traffic flow management requirements, are fulfilled. Both AMAN and DMAN provide sequencing of departures and advice generation for all the air traffic controllers involved.

OSYRIS software is already the application of choice for Air Navigation Service Providers (including NATS, NAV Canada, ENAV Italy, Hong Kong CAD and CAA Singapore), airports (Gatwick Airport Ltd., Singapore Changi Airport Group Pte Ltd), and research organizations including EUROCONTROL Experimental Center.
