On April 17th 2018, EUROCONTROL and 41 industry partners, mostly air navigation service providers, launched a new contract with British Telecom, for the provision and management of a secure and highly resilient New Pan-European Network Service (NewPENS). The total value of the contract is estimated more than €50 million for a duration of 10 years.
“The new, ultra-resilient network will connect around 100 locations across 47 countries in the EUROCONTROL area and neighboring countries. It can be used by all air traffic management (ATM) stakeholders to transfer business-critical data reliably, securely and safely in a cost-efficient way.”
NewPENS is the successor of PENS, which was launched in December 2009.
Over the last 3 years ALBCONTROL technical and managerial staff was intensively involved in this huge European project. Our team was a proactive actor of the voluminous effort done by working groups, and also part of the Executive Board of New PENS, proudly representing our company in the international arena.
