1Spatial delivers end-to-end chart production solution to the RAF

February 01, 2012 -- 1Spatial is delighted to announce the successful completion of the latest stage of a long term development project for No1 Aeronautical Information Documents Unit (No1 AIDU), supporting paper and digital chart production.

As provider and distributor of aeronautical charts to the MOD, No1 AIDU has to distribute mission critical data that is accurate and up to date within set timescales. Their 28-day update cycle requires production of up to 72 different En Route Charts in both paper and digital format for use by pilots and flight planners. The actual chart generation, following the data update process, takes place in a short window before final manual checks are carried out.

The new system introduces 1Spatial’s rules-based Radius Studio platform to provide configurable, automated processing capabilities to the production workflow. The new system is also based on one single database, rather than multiple datasets. By relying on a single source of truth for both En-Route charts and digital data exports, the effort of the maintenance task and the risk of inconsistencies between datasets are both reduced.

By automating large sections of the workflow, including processing the data, placing labels and cartographically clarifying the output, No1 AIDU can reduce the risk of inconsistencies between charts. This reduces both the time taken for processing the charts and the amount of manual effort required meaning they can produce a more accurate and consistent product in less time, with less risk and at a lower manual overhead. 

Wing Commander Paul Bostock, Officer Commanding No 1 AIDU said:

The successful delivery of this project is a major milestone in our drive for more efficient production and ensuring that our charts and other documents meet the highest quality standards. ”     

Martin Gregory, Sales Manager, Data Providers, at 1Spatial added:

“1Spatial has been working with No1 AIDU for more than 20 years, enhancing their chart production system to meet new requirements as they have developed. This project delivery will ensure that AIDU’s business demands can be met today, but importantly has also provided the foundations to transition to a more open system and data management environment that is more suitable to meet future objectives and demands being placed on AIDU. The incorporation of Radius Studio into the workflow demonstrates the platform’s capabilities and delivers the benefits of consistent, high quality data ensuring flight safety.”
