CIAS selects CarteNav's AIMS-HD software to be new mission management system for their Islander SAR aircraft. Upgraded capability ensures CIAS can continue their work for years to come.

Halifax, Nova Scotia (PRWEB) July 10, 2014

CarteNav Solutions Inc. is pleased to announce their cooperation with Britten Norman and Channel Island Air Search (CIAS) in supplying a new mission management system for their Islander search aircraft.

Britten Norman are supplying an interim aircraft to CIAS, allowing them to continue search operations, while they build a brand new Islander for the charity which is anticipated to be ready towards the end of next year. At the heart of the new mission system is AIMS-HD, a software solution from CarteNav Solutions Inc. that integrates a WESCAM MX10 EO/IR camera and an AIS system, and will be hosted on a Britannia 2000 Compact Airborne Mission Computer (CAMC).

Roger Dadd, founder of CIAS said, "For CIAS the choice of CarteNav was made after a thorough evaluation of our updated requirements and after 15 years of experience with thermal imaging equipment. The Company have been exceedingly supportive, recognising that we are a purely charitable organisation. The use of CarteNav will mean a quantum leap forward, taking us to the leading edge of search capabilities, for which we are extremely grateful."

AIMS-HD provides full camera control, video recording and display, and allows the operator to show a variety of track and geographic data geo-referenced onto a digital moving map.

CIAS is ideally placed to benefit from our AIMS-HD mission management system, said Paul Evans, COO of CarteNav. It provides the right tools for the job, and ensures that CIAS will be able to carry out its excellent work for years to come.

The operators can change the interface to show whatever they need, depending on the current stage of the mission. They can add filters or search areas, and see these on the video display, as well as the moving map, he concluded.

CIAS is based in Guernsey airport in the Channel Islands, just off the French coast of the English Channel, one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world. They offer primarily a comprehensive, rapid-response search service covering approximately 4000 square miles and they respond to between 30 and 40 call outs each year.

CarteNav Solutions Inc. is an international leader in situational awareness solutions for the airborne, land, and maritime environments. Founded in 2002, CarteNav offers operationally proven data integration and display technologies that dramatically improve performance of both sensor operators and tactical decision makers. The company has established a reputation for providing sought-after and high-value software solutions to meet short timeframes at attractive price points.
