SANS (Saudi Air Navigation Service) visited IDS AirNav to approve the final design of the AIM system which will be deployed in Jeddah in the second half of this year.
During the 3 weeks session SANS and the IDS AirNav engineers finalized more than twenty project documents which define every details of the AIM solution.
Before the Critical Design Review (CDR) fourteen trainees from SANS participated to an extensive five weeks factory training which allowed SANS technical and operational team to reach the desired level of knowledge of IDS AirNav technology: a necessary precondition to effectively assist the CDR session.
The next step of the project is the Factory Acceptance planned in March 2020. After the achievement of this milestone the project will continue directly in Saudi Arabia where are planned two different site acceptance milestones: the first one for the NOTAM system in July and the final one in December 2020. The system will be delivered on a turn key bases with more the 300 aeronautical charts (airport, procedure, obstacle, enroute) ready to be maintained by using the IDS AirNav Technology.
