OverviewThe mission of Air Traffic and Navigation Services SOC Ltd (ATNS) is to provide safe, expeditious and efficient air traffic management solutions and associated services, while ensuring long-term economic, social and environmental sustainability.
ATNS is responsible for air traffic control in approximately 10% of the world's airspace. Their services extend further than the familiar air traffic control service, into the provision of vitally important aeronautical information used for all flight planning purposes, as well as search and rescue coordination activities and the maintenance of a reliable navigation infrastructure.
Their operations also include: the supply of aeronautical information services, technical maintenance and aerodrome services; alert, search and rescue coordination services; management of the flexible use of airspace through the Central Airspace Unit (CAMU); support for special events, and special requirements such as test flights and demonstration flights; the implementation and maintenance of a terrestrial-based navigational structure; and the training of licensed air traffic controllers and technical staff through the Aviation Training Academy (ATA).
