Home Main Areas AIM Airport Terrain & Obstacle
Airspace protection and obstacle clearance are vital to ensuring safe airport and aircraft operations. Regulations, procedures and standards exist for determining obstructions to navigable airspace, including the height of buildings, antennas, trees, and other objects in the vicinity of airports. Airports and Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) are required by ICAO to publish obstacle charts for various scenarios including engine-out and emergency operations.
The IDS AirNav electronic Terrain and Obstacle Data-set (e-TOD Suite) is designed to import, validate and disseminate airport, terrain and obstacle data, and to aid in the creation and maintenance of aerodrome surfaces (for safe operations) and obstacle charts, ensuring that data quality and integrity is of the highest level and in compliance with international data quality requirements (ICAO Annex 15, up to the latest amendments).
