AERONAUTICAL DATA MANAGEMENT

Snowflake Software’s aeronautical data management solution is dedicated to the management of static and dynamic aeronautical data, providing data storage and management as a foundation for a range of aeronautical applications. It is built around a version managed data store coupled with a suite of components for import and export of data in SWIM compatible formats. The solution is a key enabler in the migration from AIS to AIM. Providing a single source of static and dynamic aeronautical information for multiple applications ensures that all stakeholders of aeronautical information receive consistent information.

BENEFITS

MANAGED AERONAUTICAL INFORMATION

Managing aeronautical information in a single database from which all aeronautical products are created ensures that all published data and products are consistent with each other.

AUTOMATED PROCESSING

Managing information in a form where it can be automatically processed and validated is an essential step towards the management of data integrity and quality. Fully automating the transmission of data ensures that data passes through the whole chain from source to end user free of transcription errors.

INTEGRATED STATIC AND DYNAMIC INFORMATION

Bringing together static aeronautical information with NOTAMs in a single database gives applications the complete aeronautical picture in one place.

EXTENSIBLE DATA MODEL

Whilst AIXM provides an extensive model for aeronautical information it is often supplemented with extensions for specific regional or national needs. Snowflake’s technologies can support extended content that is managed and stored as an integrated part of the aeronautical data.

FLEXIBLE DEPLOYMENT

The aeronautical data management solution can be deployed on-premise alongside your existing systems allowing you to manage it as part of your IT estate. Alternatively, you can let Snowflake take care of maintaining and supporting it in a cloud deployment.

FEATURES

AIXM 5.1 SUPPORT

Store data with the full richness of AIXM 5.1. This includes the ability to provide stakeholders with both the current situation and the future changes, as well as maintaining expired aeronautical information for auditability purposes.

CONNECT 3RD PARTY APPLICATIONS

Connect a wide range of 3rd party enterprise and desktop applications to the data store via its SQL interfaces. Ensures that all applications, such as AIP production, chart production, pilot briefings and Aeronautical Information and NOTAM editing systems are presented with consistent information.

VERSION CONTROLLED DATABASE

Separate data changes from different AIRAC cycles to simultaneously support applications needing to see the latest edits and those needing the published baselines of the data.

NOTAM LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT

Maintain the latest NOTAM state through automatic NOTAM lifecycle rules applied to NOTAMN, NOTAMR and NOTAMC.

OPEN STANDARDS

Consume and share aeronautical information via SWIM technical infrastructure (SWIM TI Yellow Profile) and exchange standards such as AIXM 5.1, AIXM 4.5, D-NOTAM, WFS-TE (WFS Temporal Extension) and AMQP 1.0.

DATA SOURCE TRACEABILITY

Snowflake’s aeronautical data management solution employs comprehensive logging to track the flow of messaging in and out of the system and records AIXM 5.1 metadata in the data store. This means that the source of all data in the system can be traced: an essential step in ensuring data integrity and a key capability needed to implement ICAO Annex 15 and the EU ADQ regulation.
