Coflight Cloud Services (CCS) began with a brilliant idea that no one from the ATM community believed in but yet existing in the bank sector. Daniel Weder, the former CEO of Skyguide, has imagine to create a unique concept, the Virtual Center based on a single data center to feed two ops rooms.
Skyguide taking advantage of the collaboration in the functional airspace block (FABEC) and solicited the help of major ANSPs by making an official request to the DSNA. The French ANSP studied the project and was convinced of its huge transformative potential on the air traffic digitalization and decided to meet the challenge with Skyguide.
ENAV as a long-term technical partner of DSNA on Coflight joined the collaboration with its own client, MATS.
The feasibility study completed in 2014 didn’t show any blocking points from a legal, economic, security or safety standpoint. And that was the start of the Coflight Cloud Services adventure, for this innovative flight plan data processing service, that will empower customers with greater flexibility.
Together the four partners are co-building the project and venturing into new areas to bring ATM into the future.
