Concept, Systems and Procedures Innovation

A Concept of Operations (CONOPS) describes the operational strategy required to meet a set of performance objectives. The CONOPS communicates the overall vision for the operational system to all Air Traffic Management stakeholders and provides the steering for future systems and procedures development.

AVISU has a proven capability to marry the need for a transparent and stable development process with the open creative environment needed for true innovation to occur.

Support for Sales and Marketing

The AVISU approach to sales is to connect with the customer, understand their issues and map the solutions to achieve success. In the complex world of Air Traffic Management, an integrated approach is essential. Sales staff need the operational knowledge to understand the industry, to identify with their customers and establish a trusted partnership.

AVISU brings years of operational expertise into the sales domain with a tailored approach to both strategy and pipeline delivery combined with customer awareness and relationship management.

Implementation and Operations

Implementation is a risky business. The meticulous planning required is not easy and demands well thought out procedures. Airport operations staff need thorough training both in preparation and throughout the life of the operation.

Air Traffic Management system upgrades need to be managed in a safe and efficient manner and contingency arrangements constantly under evaluation to support the ever changing business environment.

AVISU has developed, trained and updated procedures linked to a wide range of operational concepts. Our AVISIM system is a simulation and analytical tool that can perform analyses linked to varied ATM operations.

Safety Management and Regulation

Safety Management is the foundation of all safety-of-life industries. The International Civil Aviation Organsiation's (ICAO) four pillars of safety management, which are enshrined in most of the world’s regulatory environments, provide a high level guide as to what is required.

However, AVISU has learnt over many decades of safety management that pure process is not enough. A real understanding of the end users of the systems and procedures is an absolute requirement to sound and lasting safety management.

AVISU's rare experience in both operations and safety management disciplines has proven the difference time and again between a successful project and costly, delayed or failed projects.

Strategic Advice

The development and updating of strategic directions involve a complex set of interactions between many disciplines. Past performance can be used as an indicator for the future, however if growth is expected then an understanding of the underlying assumptions and market forces is essential. AVISIM, the intelligent airport simulation and analytics tool is a key tool to support advice and decision making.

AVISU’s experience in developing holistic visions covering both current and emerging concepts in Air Traffic Management enables us to provide realistic and business-focused strategic advice. We support mergers and acquisition investigation, due diligence activities, and both CAPEX and OPEX investment decision making.

Change Management

Change Management in the aviation world is a complex activity as the normal change processes are complicated by the need to not only maintain but improve on safety. A lot of the time safety is considered a competing objective to efficiency or productivity objectives, and aviation change programs will result in this clash if poorly run. However, when truly integrated, the safety performance can become an aid to realising the targeted financial performance.

AVISU expertise allows us to apply an integrated safety approach within change management methodologies across all our project management contributions.


The entire change lifecycle from concept of operations to operations and maintenance is a complex and changing environment. All industry partners in global Air Traffic Management, from suppliers to service providers and regulators require up-to-date tailored knowledge in order to support the workforce in making sound and target focused decisions.

AVISU has been delivering bespoke training for over 20 years in all aspects of ATM by trusted and recognized experts across the industry.
