CGI selected by UK air traffic controller to transform digital infrastructure

CGI has been selected to partner with NATS, a leading UK provider of air traffic control services, to help transform and modernise the company’s digital infrastructure and evolve its services for air traffic operations in the UK.

The seven-year agreement is the culmination of a year of working together and will deliver data centre and hosting services to further increase the resilience, flexibility and scalability of NATS’ critical digital infrastructure. CGI’s support will include transitioning NATS to a hybrid cloud model using an agile delivery approach. In addition, CGI will provide NATS with consulting services, frameworks, and practices for transforming and managing its complex IT portfolio.

NATS provides air traffic services at 14 UK airports and manages all UK airspace from two air traffic control centres located at Swanwick in Hampshire and Prestwick in Ayrshire.

Tim Bullock, Supply Chain and Facilities Management Director at NATS, said: “NATS is currently implementing a transformational technology programme to deliver the next generation solutions that will continue to keep the skies safe into the future and support our customers worldwide and we will be relying on CGI’s expertise and proven capability to build and support the digital infrastructure. CGI will be joining an ecosystem of partners and I look forward to many years of collaborative success.”
