Thales welcomes OneSKY milestones

Thales welcomes the announcement by Airservices Australia today that two key milestones in the delivery of the world-leading OneSKY program have been reached.

Thales is proud to have worked with Airservices Australia, the Australian Defence Force and our industrial partner Frequentis to successfully introduce the new Civil Military ATM (CMATS) voice communication system at the Sydney, Melbourne and Perth ATM facilities.

Thales Australia Ltd. CEO Chris Jenkins said that this represents a major delivery milestone for this historic program to deliver the world's most advanced and integrated civil and military air traffic management system.

Thales and Airservices have also reached another key milestone with the finalisation of the system definition review for the integration of Australia's civil and military air traffic control systems.

OneSKY will use the latest cutting-edge technology to improve flight co-ordination, safely increase the use of airspace, optimise air traffic flow and improve the way planes approach the runway.

OneSKY will manage all civilian and military air movements across 11% of the earth's airspace, covering the vast continent of Australia and extending west into the Indian Ocean and east to New Zealand.
