ERA presented its latest novelty ERIS at the World ATM Congress in Madrid
ERA Company (a member of OMNIPOL group), along with its subsidiary R-SYS, exhibited its tried and tested technologies for aircraft surveillance and air traffic management (ATM) and their innovations at the World ATM Congress held at IFEMA trade-park in Madrid, Spain, on 12-14 March 2019. The main highlight of the joint ERA and R-SYS presentation at the ERA stand was ERIS-A, the new ATM and ATC system for ground surveillance and control at medium-sized and regional airports.
The ERA and R-SYS experts also presented this brand new ATM software in a lecture “ERIS-A as a Common Ground Alternative Surveillance and Control System” as part of the conference programme.
ERIS represents a product family of Air Traffic Management systems designed for Air Traffic Control and flight planning of civil and military operations. ERIS is based on a modern sophisticated and modular design that has been developed in compliance with ICAO and EUROCONTROL standards. ERIS’s modular architecture and scalability enable individual and optimal site-specific tailoring and easy integration into various ATC environments. ERIS in conjunction with ERA´s NEO multi-sensor surveillance system represent the complex solution for ATC controllers.
The newly introduced ERIS system, depending on ATC operations, is provided as:
ERIS-ATM - a solution for Approach Control Service (APP) or Area Control Service (ACC)
ERIS-A - alternative surveillance system and ATC/ATM solution for TWR
The system is designed for 24/7 continuous operation with its configuration depending on the given use case. The key features include Multi-sensor Data Fusion, Flight Data Processing, Safety Nets, Integrated Situational Data Presentation, Complex Supervision and Monitoring, and Recording and Analysis tools. The use cases of ERIS range from a solution on ACC or APP level to a Common Ground Surveillance System (CGSS) for medium-sized and regional airports.
The World ATM congress now in its seventh year, is the world’s largest international ATM exhibition and conference that brings together the world’s leading product developers, experts, stakeholders and air navigation service providers (ANSPs). This event is co-organized by CANSO (Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation) and ATCA (Air Traffic Control Association).This year there were more than 240 exhibitors and over 8,500 registrants from 136 countries.
