The  Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has said it plans to test run its Automated Information System (AIS) in October.

The Director of  Safety Electronics  and Engineering Services (DSEES) of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), Engr Ifeanyi Nwankwo made this announcement to journalists recently in Lagos.

Nwankwo who disclosed the level of work on the installation told aviation correspondents in Lagos, that the first phase of AIS automation which would be made up of 10 stations would come alive at the end of October this year.

Egnr Nwankwo said the agency envisaged the challenges of power failure and security adding that a hybrid solar station has been put in place for the equipment by the agency while NAMA engineers will be expected to monitor stations from time to time but needed security to do so.

The objective of the Aeronautical Information Service is to ensure the flow of information necessary for the safety, regularity and efficiency of international air navigation.
