PAMS provides configurable, integrated alarm status management of ground-based systems for Military Air Traffic Management (ATM). Flexible architecture enables multiple remote satellite sites, aerodromes, air bases and ranges to be controlled from one or more hub locations. PAMS Military systems offer all the functionality of PAMS Civil systems that can be viewed here.
Improved safety and awareness - Having real-time alarm notifications allows issues to be identified and addressed quickly before they escalate or cause accidents. This is especially important on active airfields and ranges where aircraft and other operations are constantly ongoing.
Faster response times - Real-time alarm systems allow maintenance teams and operators to immediately see when something goes wrong. This reduces downtime and disruptions by enabling a faster mobilisation of personnel to troubleshoot issues.
Enhanced preventive maintenance - Data from real-time alarm systems can be analysed over time to identify patterns and recurring issues. This allows for preventive maintenance to be scheduled proactively before problems occur.
Increased operational readiness - With fewer unexpected outages or safety issues, real-time alarm management helps ensure airfields and ranges are available whenever needed for missions and exercises. This improves overall operational readiness.
Resource optimisation - By understanding alarm trends and preventive maintenance needs, personnel and parts inventories can be optimised. Teams are properly staffed when needed rather than having to maintain continually high staffing levels.
Cost savings - The capabilities above all contribute to greater efficiency, less downtime, and fewer major repairs. This translates to significant long-term cost savings on maintenance and operations. Furthermore the ability to monitor remote or infrequently used airfields enables reduced manning and better operational cover.
The key is having centralised alarm management software that can take real-time data from diverse systems across airfields and ranges and make it actionable for multiple users and purposes. Implemented well, it can be a major capability enhancer for military aviation and test range installations.
