AQUILA se­lected by UK MOD


AQUILA, a joint ven­ture be­tween NATS and Thales, has signed a con­tract to de­liver Mar­shall, the UK Min­istry of De­fence (MOD) pro­gramme to trans­form ter­mi­nal air traf­fic man­age­ment at mil­i­tary air­fields. The con­tract is val­ued at around £1.5 bil­lion over the course of its 22 year life­span.

Mar­shall seeks to en­sure a safe, ef­fi­cient and sus­tain­able air traf­fic man­age­ment (ATM) ser­vice for the UK armed forces. It will mod­ernise ATM at over 100 MOD lo­ca­tions, in the UK and over­seas, in­clud­ing more than 60 air­fields and ranges.

AQUILA will de­liver a sys­tem-wide mod­erni­sa­tion and ra­tion­al­i­sa­tion of the cur­rent frag­mented sys­tem, and es­tab­lish a flex­i­ble ATM ser­vice – one that com­plies with known reg­u­la­tory re­quire­ments and which is fu­ture-proofed to meet any po­ten­tial change in the reg­u­la­tory and tech­no­log­i­cal land­scape.
