project details:

It was Supply and installation project awarded to Bayanat Engineering Qatar by Qatar Civil Aviation Authority (QCAA). Digital Automatic terminal information service, is a continuous broadcast of recorded aeronautical information in busier terminal areas, ATIS broadcasts contain essential information, such as current weather information, active runways, available approaches, and any other information required by the pilots, such as important NOTAMs. Pilots usually listen to an available ATIS broadcast before contacting the local control unit, which reduces the controllers’ workload and relieves frequency congestion.
