The Washington Consulting Group, Inc.: Championing Aviation Safety

Top 10 Air Traffic Control Consulting/Services Companies - 2020

Once the COVID-19 pandemic retreats, the aviation industry is predicted to swiftly rollup and get back on its upward trajectory. The recent years have witnessed extreme growth in air traffic, and the trend is only going to continue. The number of flights and airline passengers are predicted to be doubled by the end of the next decade. The industry has started to realize the significance of embracing more digitalization and efficient technologies in the wake of this growing demand.

The implementation of remote digital towers (RDT) has been a significant step in this digital revolution. For instance, in 2019, Scandinavian Mountains Airport in Sweden became the first airport to be built without a traditional control tower and marked a new era in air traffic control. Advancements in high-definition digital surveillance technology, data transmission and processing, and cyber-resilience are certainly going to make the industry move increasingly toward RDTs.

Also, many innovations are ongoing in the ground-to-air connectivity landscape as the traditional communication protocols are facing increasing pressure. Even though the passenger planes are a very different prospect from those that were used earlier, the air traffic control radio communication systems between controllers and pilots have remained broadly the same for decades. However, today, the concept of connected aircraft is transforming aviation operations. It’s changing the way how flights operate and makes aviation safer, reliable, efficient, and easy to manage. Inventions are happening on optimizing the transmission of digital information between pilots, air traffic control (ATC), and airline operations centers using internet protocol suites (IPS), which could drastically improve ATC communications and data exchanges.

At this juncture, there are a variety of air traffic control consulting/services companies are available in the market that caters to different needs of the airports and air traffic management. To help choose the services that best fit your requirement, Aerospace and Defense Review has compiled this edition. The enlisted companies are the frontrunners in the market that provide a wide span of offerings.
