IAS, IDS AirNav AeroDB Suite, lies at the heart of IDS AirNav integrated aeronautical information management (AIM) suite and supports AIM organizations in aeronautical data management. It provides a central aeronautical database (AeroDB) and a set of rule driven translation tools to import and export data. It supports the transition from AIS to AIM by providing structured static and dynamic aeronautical data management while maintaining the concept of time dependent data.
IAS is a set of software applications that allows data management in AeroDB and provides AIS providers with fast and safe methods of importing and exporting electronic aeronautical data to and from AeroDB as well as methods for the maintenance (extraction, updating and deletion) of aeronautical feature data and their attributes. It is compatible with EUROCONTROL’s AICM/AIXM (4.5 & 5.1), ARINC 424, DAFIF and ICAO standards while rule driven tools allow the user to define rules to import or export any other data format. All data is digitally validated by a rule based data set validation engine and files can be compared to identify and therefore resolve any inconsistencies prior to generating fixed or merged output files.
IAS Main Applications
IAS provides aeronautical data management and distribution (internal and external) in accordance with ADQ requirements. It is Oracle based and stores all the aeronautical data used for design and production activities such as flight procedure design, airspace design, publishing and charting.
The AeroDB stores production level data relevant to:
and all related features, including timesheets.
It is therefore the ideal solution for users of aeronautical data including:
Combines standard format support with a good flexibility, adapting to an organization’s specific needs
Centralized aeronautical data storage aids with the maintenance of aeronautical data
Flexibility allows a smooth transition to standard formats (e.g. AIXM)
EUROCONTROL’s AICM/AIXM, ARINC and ICAO standards compatibility
Automatic data validation with data integrity assured, as required by ICAO standard, via cyclical redundancy checks (CRC)
Data change control and tracking
Full integration with the IDS Air Nav AIM suite, offering applications such as workflow management as well as AIP and chart production
The integrated nature of IDS Air Nav AIS/AIM solutions ensures full compliancy with the ICAO mandate for data quality as well as EUROCONTROLS Aeronautical Data Quality (ADQ) mandate
IAS is composed of the following modules:
