Accelerate SWIM Implementation
SWIM Gateway for the GCAA, an industry use case
SWIM Gateway is a first of its kind solution designed for the GCAA and built by Snowflake Software, supporting the GCAA’s vision of being a “leading, safe, secure and sustainable civil aviation system”. Snowflake Software successfully installed the SWIM Gateway in the Sheik Zayed Air Navigation Centre’s (SZC) Research and Dataset System (RDS) environment in Abu Dhabi. As a non-disruptive solution, the installation resulted in zero downtime to operational systems, ensuring a seamless transition for the GCAA. SWIM Gateway enables the GCAA and its stakeholders to align with several of the Aviation System Block Upgrades (ASBU) within the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Global Air Navigation Plan (GANP).
Snowflake Software’s platform provides SWIM Gateway with end-to-end flight data management; the system receives, validates and publishes the most up-to-date flight planning and strategic tactical flow management data, enabling effective information exchange amongst all stakeholders in the region. SWIM Gateway receives the GCAA’s live FDPS, AMAN, DFLOW and ATS data feeds amongst others, to consume and output data in accordance with SWIM standards. By consolidating multiple data feeds, SWIM Gateway automates contextual validation of the flight plans throughout its Strategic, Pre-tactical and Tactical phases.
