DataBeacon proudly announces the launch of SimpliFID, a cutting-edge Flight Information Display (FID) solution that is set to revolutionize air traffic management. SimpliFID utilizes our state-of-the-art Victor5 technology, marking a significant milestone in our mission to enhance safety and efficiency in aviation.

Victor5, our advanced digital assistant for air traffic management, paved the way for the development of SimpliFID, which was launched by DataBeacon earlier this year, in collaboration with Air Navigation Solutions Limited (ANSL). This meticulously designed technology meets the evolving needs of the industry, providing air traffic controllers and airports with an affordable and low-complexity FID solution. SimpliFID offers a highly accessible and cost-effective alternative to traditional surveillance data processing systems (SDPS) and radar. By harnessing the power of Victor5, SimpliFID delivers realtime flight information, enabling to make informed decisions swiftly and accurately. This innovative solution not only enhances safety but also streamlines operations, ultimately improving the overall efficiency of air traffic management.

SimpliFID is fully aligned with the CAP670 UK FID regulation, ensuring compliance and seamless integration within existing systems and procedures. Additionally, thanks to the adaptability and customizability of the technology developed in Victor5, DataBeacon can easily tailor our technology to meet the specific needs and regulations. This flexibility allows us to adapt the solution to the unique requirements of air traffic management systems worldwide following a strict requirements management process and developing custom products for different markets.

We are thrilled to announce that DataBeacon and ANSL have been selected by Highlands and Islands Airports Limited (HIAL) for implementation of SimpliFID across multiple airports. The installation will be carried out in two phases over the next 18 months, with the initial phase encompassing Benbecula, Kirkwall, and Stornoway airports. The second phase will see SimpliFID deployed at Dundee, Islay, and Wick John O’Groats airports. This collaboration with ANSL highlights the trust and confidence placed in DataBeacon’s technology by industry leaders.

The launch of SimpliFID is just the beginning of our commitment to transforming air traffic management technology. Building on the success of this groundbreaking solution, we are already working on developing additional products based on the Victor5 technology stack. These upcoming products will further enhance safety and efficiency in aviation, solidifying our position as an innovation leader. Furthermore, our commitment to affordability and accessibility remains unwavering. We understand the financial constraints faced by many airports and air navigation service providers, and we strive to provide cost-effective solutions that do not compromise on quality or performance. Our goal is to increase access to cutting-edge technology, ensuring that even smaller organizations can benefit from the latest advancements in technology.

David Pérez, CEO of DataBeacon says: “With our continued focus on innovation, we aim to address the evolving challenges faced by air navigation service providers and airports. Our upcoming products will offer advanced features and functionalities that will revolutionize the way aviation products and services are delivered. By leveraging the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning, we will enable real-time data analysis, predictive modeling, and intelligent decision-making capabilities.”

As we embark on this exciting journey with SimpliFID and our upcoming products, we remain committed to our mission of enhancing safety and efficiency in aviation. We firmly believe that the integration of advanced technology in air traffic management is crucial for the future of the industry. By leveraging the power of Victor5 and our upcoming solutions, we aim to create a safer and more efficient airspace for all.
