Digital Transformation Day Conference was held with the support of AZANS in Baku

October 10, 2019, Baku – On October 10, 2019, the first international conference Digital Transformation Day was held with the support of “Azeraeronavigation” Air Traffic Control (AZANS) at the Sheraton Baku Airport Hotel.

Focus at the conference was on the "Digital Transformation and Cyber Security in Azeraeronavigation". The event, held with the support of foreign partners, was attended by representatives of leading providers from the United States, Germany, Austria, France, Russia, Britain, China and other countries.

AZANS Director Farhan Guliyev in his welcoming speech noted that the use of advanced digital technologies in the organization of air traffic requires a high level of cybersecurity and protection from cyberattacks.

"As an air navigation provider, AZANS provides cost effective, safe, reliable, flexible and sustainable air traffic management by implementing up-to-date technologies. This year, AZANS successfully completed the first phase of implementation of the digital air traffic control tower at Gabala airport. The new solution is based on the Enhanced Airport Vision Display platform," –  said AZANS Director Farhan Guliyev.

Currently, AZANS is also working on the introduction of technologies for controlling the movement of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the airspace of Azerbaijan. Unmanned air traffic control will also be introduced using advanced digital innovations, and the issue of safety of traditional flights will be a priority.

"AZANS is looking for ways to develop and safe implementation of UAVs in controlled airspace, using industry technologies known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Traffic Control (UAV) or Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM), with the widespread use of advanced digital technologies, including artificial intelligence. At the same time, priority is given to ensuring that the introduction of such innovations does not jeopardize the safety of traditional flights", – added Farhan Guliyev.

Following the results of the conference in Baku, for the first time in global civil aviation history the declaration was signed on joint efforts to combat cyber threats in international air navigation.
