Frequentis AG is an international supplier of communication and information systems for control centres with safety-critical tasks.
Frequentis, founded back in 1947, has installed around 35,000 operator positions throughout the world and can draw on enormous reserves of project know-how built through numerous international engagements. Around 400 customers in approximately 150 countries rely on the know-how and experience of Frequentis.
The company focuses on technology and innovation, particularly on the design of optimised human-machine interfaces. With a market share of 30%, the company is the world market leader in voice communication systems for air traffic control; it’s also world market leader in Aeronautical Information Management.
Products for traffic dynamics and efficiency
Frequentis is leading the way with innovative solutions for traffic synchronisation and collaboration ensuring safety always comes first. This comprises voice, data and recording solutions, ATM-grade networks, virtualised private cloud and IP-based collaboration tools. Integrated solutions culminate in turnkey control centres for tower cabs and remote digital towers.
The ability to provide more precise route planning and en- route flight plan optimisation based on real-time weather data, will reduce fuel consumption, and the need for excess fuel. Adding effective departure management tools in the tower also allow engine time on the ground to be reduced.
But there is something else in the sky; the rise of drones and unmanned traffic systems fundamentally impacts the way ATM is carried out. There is just one sky, so UTM and ATM must converge to create a cross-functional, unified traffic management approach.
Growing the Frequentis Group
In 2020, Frequentis acquired a 51 per cent share in ATM automation technology supplier ATRiCS and in 2021 acquired the ATC Solutions business unit and the unit for traffic synchronisation (Orthogon) from Harris. These acquisitions extend Frequentis’ technical offering and customer base and add an even broader range of solutions to its extensive ATM portfolio.
Frequentis is now a leading provider of traffic synchronisation solutions, both en-route and on the ground with arrival- and departure management products, solutions for dynamic capacity balancing for airports, routing, guidance, and A-SMGCS. These solutions are capable of reducing air traffic controller workload and carbon emissions. Furthermore this strengthens Frequentis’ position as a global supplier of ATM communication solutions, especially for large IT-based systems.
