Guangzhou’s airspace relies on Thales to improve efficiency
Monitoring over 60% of air traffic movements in China
The new centre will house TopSky ATC, the most advanced air traffic control system in the world, and will include decentralised flight plan processing to allow the Guangzhou TMA to operate independently from the Guangzhou area control center while maintaining seamless synchronisation.
This contract builds on the wealth of expertise Thales has gained in China. Thales is the oldest and most active partner to China in all areas of air traffic management with a track record spanning over 30 years and, together with its local joint venture BEST, monitor over 60% of air traffic movements in the country. This is the third major TMA system equipped in recent years by Thales in China, following the solutions deployed in Shanghai and Beijing, and is the first ever implementation of a communications network solution developed by Chinese telecom giant Huawei.
