26 January 2022


Despite the COVID Pandemic, Copperchase has managed to successfully build, install, and commission (all remotely) an ATC Message Processing System for Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) International Airport in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The project is an Upgrade of the Copperchase ATC AFTN Messaging System, a system that has been in use in the ATC environment at RAK International Airport since 2006. The upgrade involves transition from legacy AFTN circuits to faster and reliable IP based AMHS network. However, due to the requirement to support existing systems, AMHS-AFTN conversion has been included for ATM tracks correlation.
