G&D And DFS Agree To Partnership
DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH has been an air navigation service provider for over 65 years and controls over 3 million aircraft movements per year. The company uses state-of-the-art systems to support air traffic controllers in their work and ensure maximum system security. By using cutting-edge technology and professionally trained personnel, Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH plays a pioneering role among air navigation providers.
For many years, the German ANSP has been using KVM systems for transmitting and switching computer signals from Guntermann & Drunck GmbH (G&D) to make it even easier and safer to operate their systems, making it possible to remove the computers required for navigation from the control environment in real time. In addition, G&D switches can be used to create comprehensive redundancy concepts.
DFS is committed to increasing the productivity of existing airspace structures and the human-computer interaction in air traffic control, taking into account constantly changing requirements. The new concepts and systems from in-house research and development make a decisive contribution to this. In order to simplify operation and, in particular, administration without disrupting the air traffic controllers. For some time now DFS has been working with KVM manufacturers G&D, who specialize in ATC applications. Their systems are used in all mission-critical areas such as the center and tower and are also included in DFS’s remote tower concept.
With their strong focus on ATC applications, G&D are able to meet the requirements of DFS to a particularly high degree. Their portfolio comprises a range of products, functions and monitoring features that have been specially tailored to air navigation services. In addition, the G&D trainer team trained more than 150 employees at four different locations comprehensively on the systems.
