Metron introduces Harmony Horizon

metronMetron Aviation is introducing its latest air traffic flow management (ATFM) product, Harmony Horizon in a bid to provide improved situational awareness and increased predictability of traffic demands worldwide.
Harmony Horizon is the latest evolution to Metron’s Harmony product suite, which is in use on five continents. Metron said Harmony Horizon is a cutting-edge situational awareness tool that offers strategic, pre-tactical and tactical demand predictions for airports and airspaces. Harmony Horizon also includes a system-to-system data exchange platform while promoting collaborative decision making (CDM) amongst aviation stakeholders.
Air traffic is expected to grow 4.7 per cent annually over the next 20 years. This growth coupled with existing demand means that the global aviation community must prepare the skies today for the capacity demands of tomorrow.
“The addition of Harmony Horizon to our air traffic flow management product portfolio provides Metron Aviation with a continuum of ATFM products to offer ANSP customers,” said John Kefaliotis, president of Metron Aviation.
Metron’s top-end Harmony product offers demand predictions, automated demand and capacity balancing, and stakeholder CDM including slot substitution capabilities. Together Harmony and Harmony Horizon offer stakeholders the tools needed to prepare their airspaces for tomorrow’s demand.
A subsidiary of Airbus Americas, Metron Aviation has been developing ATM and air traffic flow management solutions for the global aviation industry, including the Federal Aviation Administration since 1995.
By working with all stakeholders in the ATM ecosystem — air navigation service providers, airlines, airports, civil aviation authorities and other influencers — through its Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) process, Metron Aviation understands ATM’s greatest issues. It fuses advanced science and mathematics with unparalleled subject-matter expertise to turn groundbreaking ATM research concepts into next-generation operational capabilities.
