[Avionics Magazine 09-28-2016] Air Navigation Services Aruba (ANSA), the air navigation service provider responsible for monitoring and securing the skies over Aruba, an island in Dutch Caribbean, has selected Thales TopSky-AMHS & Thales TopSky-AIS, as well as the implementation of Wide Area Multilateration (MLAT/ADS-B).

The first project includes equipment and training for a complete Aeronautical Message Handling System (AMHS) and Aeronautical Information Services (AIS), which includes flight preparation services and capacity for NOTAM office and Meteo preparation services.
ANSA has also selected Thales to implement Wide Area Multilateration (MLAT/ADS-B) for cooperative surveillance within Aruba’s airspace and increased air traffic management capabilities. This second project will enable ANSA to process surveillance data from sensors and display them on the existing TopSky-ATC system supplied by Thales at the Reina Beatrix International Airport, Aruba.
