Orthogon ANSP Suite

The Orthogon ANSP product line is an integrated suite of arrival, departure and traffic management software that allows resources to be used flexibly, reduces workload and manages queues safely and efficiently in today's crowded air traffic environment. It can help to increase the capacities of limited airside and airport resources like runways and airspace. In addition, the Orthogon ANSP suite makes aviation more economical and environmentally responsible because it helps to reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Orthogon queue management tools are designed to operate as standalone or coupled tools, catering to increasing expectations for more efficient traffic flows and airport operations. The suite generates planning advisories combined with easy user interactions, enabling robust yet flexible and predictable planning.

Orthogon Airport Suite – Building the Bridge

The Orthogon airport suite creates a synchronized air traffic and airside flow. Supported by international aviation initiatives and in compliance with ICAO ASBU as well as SESAR deployment objectives, the Orthogon airport suite solves the most complex airport constraints - resulting in benefits for all stakeholders. The Orthogon airport suite supports the journey from airport collaborative decision making (A-CDM) to airport operations centre (APOC) to airport operation plan (AOP). With over 30 years of aviation experience and a proven implementation track record, Orthogon helps major airports solve their airside constraints:

  • Enhancing the A-CDM ANSP process at the Heathrow and Changi airports
  • Connecting air traffic control to the airport airside at the Oslo, Gatwick and Hong Kong airports
  • Enabling the world’s first operational rolling AOP at Heathrow Airport
  • Providing better dynamic airside resource management at a major airport in North America

The Orthogon airport suite improves your airport’s airside management on a strategic, budgetary and operational level – no matter how large the aircraft traffic.
