AVTECH Completes Dubai Wake Vortex Analysis Project
AVTECH Sweden AB (publ), (“AVTECH”, the “Company”), today announces that the Company has successfully completed and received full final payments on the previously communicated Dubai Wake Vortex Project including expansions and extensions through options with Dubai Air Navigation Services (“DANS”).
“Successfully completing this important contract with Dubai Air Navigation Services we have gained a lot of additional knowledge on the behavioral patterns of Wake Vortex at the largest international airport in the world. The opportunity to execute the work assignment has also provided us with an excellent opportunity to successfully validate the Wake Vortex related models that we have been developing and refining over a number of years”, says Niklaes Persson, AVTECH’s Business Unit Director Research and Development.
“Moving ahead we believe that the successful execution opens for more business opportunities in the Middle East and elsewhere, and we also believe that it is an important stepping stone in the work on a potential operational Wake Vortex solution, as previously communicated to the market”, says Anders Palm, AVTECH’s Business Unit Director Consultancy.
“This experience strengthens our capabilities to explore opportunities within Wake Vortex and Time-based Operations and we are currently recruiting several highly qualified Wake Vortex and system engineers for continued specialized development of an Operational Wake Vortex system, towards a potential future standalone Business Unit. Developments are fully funded by the investment decision previously communicated, but further external collaborations and funding are also investigated. All-in-all, the outlook within the area is promising indeed”, finishes Niklaes Persson.
