AEROFLOT INTRODUCES NEW AUTOMATED OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
March 19 2009, Moscow. – Aeroflot has introduced the new Automated Operations Management System (AOMS). The system covers all the elements of flight management: flight planning and control, daily schedule optimization, failure situation management. The system has no analogues in Russia in terms of scale and complexness, and enables a non-stop real-time exchange of information on flight planning and performance. The system spares pilots a large number of manual routine operations, and allows more time for decision making, which directly results in better flight safety.
The project is being implemented within the program aimed at complex automation of operations. The system will enable specialists from the Flight Control Center (FCC) and Failure Situation Management Center (FSMC), and in a short time, from Aviation Technical Center (ATC) and Land Navigation Complex (LNC), to obtain full real-time information on all the aspects of the continuous flight process.
During the system development, experts from Aeroflot and the Research Institute of Management Problems at the Russian Academy of Science examined all the details of the systems installed in the world’s leading airlines such as Air France, Lufthansa, Iberia, American Airlines, and closely studied their experience, in order to include the best features in the system tailored individually for Aeroflot.
