From being a leading provider of air navigation services, dans has successfully evolved into a versatile innovator and enabler of cutting-edge solutions. A key driver for this evolution is the phenomenal growth at the airports that dans serves and in the airspace that it controls. The aviation challenges that confront the UAE in general and Dubai in particular are unique and largely unprecedented. There are no off-the-shelf solutions to implement, or best practice to learn from. dans is navigating through uncharted territory and has had to develop its own research, development and testing capabilities.
In collaboration with key partners, dans has launched a number of strategic initiatives that will allow dans to safely manage capacity requirements of future traffic growth not only at DXB but also at airports in the northern emirates. These include airspace restructuring, use of latest communication, navigation, surveillance technology and the launching of ATM business continuity projects.
At present, dans’ midterm strategy (2016-2020) involves more than 35 major project initiatives – some of which represent completely new concepts and solutions to critical challenges. As more and more of these projects are successfully delivered, dans’ vision of becoming a regional Centre of Aviation Innovation is slowly being realised.
In time, dans aspires to become a global provider and industry thought leader. Its impressive R&D credentials and programme delivery track record has already earned it a solid reputation and valuable partnerships with leading aviation organisations such as CANSO, Euro Control, MITRE Corporation, ENAV, and MEAUSE.
dans’ key achievements and contributions to the aviation industry include: :
DUBAI AIR NAVIGATION SERVICES ESTABLISHES A STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP WITH DUBAI AVIATION CITY CORPORATION ENABLING ALMAKTOUM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (DWC) TO BE THE LOCATION OF THE UPCOMING dans TRAINING FACILITY
DUBAI AIR NAVIGATION SERVICES AND HONEYWELL TO EXPLORE JOINT DEVELOPMENT OF NEW AIRPORT AND AIRSIDE SOLUTIONS
