[Avionics Today 09-22-2014] Sakaeronavigatsia, Georgia’s national Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP), has signed two subsequent contracts with German Air Traffic Control (ATC) systems provider Comsoft with the goal to improve Georgia’s air navigation services.

The next-stage contract will include Comsoft’s central aeronautical database CADAS-AIMDB and its integrated and highly automated eAIP production tool as well as the OLDI/FMTP gateway COFFEE, an AIDA-NG extension, which enables Sakeronavigatsia to interconnect with adjacent ATC centers.
Georgia’s 69,000 square kilometers lie at an important boundary between Europe and Asia and the upgrade will support the increase of direct European flights from the capital Tbilisi, as well as domestic flights to Batumi and Kutaisi airports in the country. Georgia is also in close vicinity to several Russian-speaking countries, thus the system will include the ability to route messages using the Cyrillic alphabet.
