MovingDot provides consultancy services in the field of Aeronautical Information Services and Management (AIS/AIM) through a team of experts, trained in the field of AIM and aeronautical charting. Together with the Flight Procedure Designer team, they provide a complete service to Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSP), airports and other customers. The deep knowledge of the AIS and AIM domain, combined with the Air Traffic Management (ATM) and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) expertise, allows MovingDot experts to assist our customers in achieving their objectives in the field of AIM while maintaining an overview of the requirements from the whole ATM system.
MovingDot AIS experts are trained and highly experienced with international regulations, such as ICAO Annex 4 (Aeronautical Charting), Annex 15 (Aeronautical Information Services) and Doc 10066 (Aeronautical Information Management), by having produced compliant aeronautical charts and updated existing charts up to ICAO standards, as well as by having performed several compliance checks for different customers.
Our experts always work in teams of at least two, in order to ensure continuity of the project and to deliver the highest quality product to our customers. They can work with different workflows and tools, including CAD and GIS systems for aeronautical charting, and with several other tools to receive, process and produce aeronautical data following EASA 2017/373 standards for aeronautical data quality. Our products are delivered in the format required by the customer, ranging from PDF or CAD files for aeronautical charts, to AIXM 5.1 or other GIS file formats (.shp, .sql, .kml…) for aeronautical data.
Besides producing aeronautical data and publication documents, we are experienced in performing compliance checks and helping our customers set new workflows and processes for aeronautical information. The transition from AIS to AIM is one of the major developments of the ATM field in the last years, and our experts have been part of the transition by helping our customers in their journey.
Our ISO9001:2015 certification guarantees the quality of our products and workflows, while our EASA FPD Service Provision certificate ensures a perfect integration of our AIS services with our FPD work.
