ACCELERATE SWIM IMPLEMENTATION

“The ATM community will depend extensively on the provision of timely, relevant, accurate, accredited and quality-assured information to collaborate and make informed decisions.”

ICAO Doc 9854 – Global Air Traffic Management Operational Concept (GATMOC)

Air travel is currently doubling every 15 years. To support and enable this growth into the future, the industry must continually work to realise efficiencies and address the problem of limited capacity.

Globally, aviation organisations must progress initiatives to support that projected future growth, or be struck with decreasing efficiency and increasing overheads. ICAO’s Global Air Navigation Plan lays out the roadmap for System Wide Information Management (SWIM) where data is exchanged freely between systems in an interoperable manner based on open standards, and 2019 is the start of the key transition period during which organisations must define and act upon their SWIM strategies.

REALISE THE BENEFITS OF SWIM, NOW.

SWIM WITH LAMINAR DATA – AN INDUSTRY USE CASE

SWIM Gateway is a first of its kind solution designed for the GCAA and built by Snowflake Software, supporting the GCAA’s vision of being a “leading, safe, secure and sustainable civil aviation system”. Snowflake Software successfully installed the SWIM Gateway in the Sheik Zayed Air Navigation Centre’s (SZC) Research and Dataset System (RDS) environment in Abu Dhabi.  As a non-disruptive solution, the installation resulted in zero downtime to operational systems, ensuring a seamless transition for the GCAA. SWIM Gateway enables the GCAA and its stakeholders to align with several of the Aviation System Block Upgrades (ASBU) within the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Global Air Navigation Plan (GANP).

Snowflake Software’s Laminar Data platform provides SWIM Gateway with end-to-end flight data management; the system receives, validates and publishes the most up-to-date flight planning and strategic tactical flow management data, enabling effective information exchange amongst all stakeholders in the region. SWIM Gateway receives the GCAA’s live FDPS, AMAN, DFLOW and ATS data feeds amongst others, to consume and output data in accordance with SWIM standards. By consolidating multiple data feeds, SWIM Gateway automates contextual validation of the flight plans throughout its Strategic, Pre-tactical and Tactical phases.
