GAELICAM Team has a very large experience developing and delivering CNS/ATM courses with a very clear ANSP orientation. This experience has been obtained during over 30 years working in multiple national and international projects regarding to Air Navigation systems in the following areas:

    • ATM data communications: surveillance (radar, multilateration LAM/WAM, ADS-C, ADS-B), OLDI, EGNOS, Galileo, CFMU, EAD, PENS, Voice over IP (VoIP), Voice Communications Systems (VCSs), Flight Plan Data Processors (FPDPs), ATIS, VOLMET, communications protocols (IPv4, IPv6, X.25, FR, ATM), ...
    • Datalink systems: ATN concept, Air/Ground sub-networks based on VDL2, FANS Accommodation (Front-End Processors), CPDLC, ADS-C, ADS-B, D-ATIS, D-VOLMET, …
    • Aeronautical Messaging Networks (AFTN/AMHS).
    • ATM satellite communications projects: European Space Agency program ARTES 10 called Iris program (HERMES consortium), …
    • Communications Transmission means: microwaves and optical fiber rings.
    • Navigations systems: Performance-based Navigation (PBN) clarifying differences between RNAV and RNP, Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and Ground Based Augmentation System (GBAS), traditional navigations systems (VOR, DME, ILS,...).
    • Surveillance systems: ADS-B, ADS-C, Mode-S radar, Multilateration (LAM, WAM), A-SMGCS (Advanced-Surface Movement Guidance and Control System), TIS-B, …
    • ATM Data Processing domain addresses all systems which process flight data and environment data in support of integrated ATM operations.
    •  System Monitoring and Control domain assessing technologies (SNMP, others…) in order to identify pros and cons of each one.
    • Verification and Validation activities: Interoperability Regulation and Certification activities, European Operational Concept Validation Methodology (E-OCVM), …
    • Safety activities: ESSAR (Eurocontrol Safety Regulatory Requirement), SAM (Safety Assessment Methodology), ICAO’s Annex 19 and the Global Aviation Safety Plan, Safety Management System (SMS), …
    • Security activities learning how to perform a security risk assessment and identifying best practices from ISO/IEC 27001 and NIST standards.

      Our team comprises a group of CNS/ATM technology experts able to link the analysis of technology and the management of strategic issues with the management of ANSPs CNS/ATM programs.

      We have identified as follows a series of critical competencies to be staffed for your CNS/ATM Training project:

      • Understanding of the ANSP business.
      • Understanding of ATM / CNS.
      • Understanding of the ATM communications business (legacy and VoIP).
      • Large experience delivering CNS/ATM courses to ANSPs.
      • Understanding of SESAR-related regulations, plans and objectives.
      • Understanding of Safety and Certification issues.


We offer a huge variety of CNS/ATM courses. Please contact us for more information.
