ATIS - Automatic Terminal Information Service Providing pilots with critical information


Air-traffic controllers often have an enormous workload due to the massive information flow.

Saab's ATIS (Automatic Terminal Information Service) system reduces the workload through a fully automated transmission of weather and runway conditions for the airport, reducing the number of initial controller-pilot radio contacts required.


In fully automatic mode, the ATIS operates without the need for user intervention.


Airport-specific information can be added or changed by the operator at any time, without affecting the ongoing receiving and transmitting of messages.
