Information Systems
An Information System (IS)is any combination of information technology and people's activities using that technology to support operations, management, and decision-making. We are experienced in engineering the software based Information System which can be used for applications in Defence, Internal Security, and Policing. We have the domain knowledge to elicit, analyse, and write effective requirements in a methodical manner, undertake software and hardware design, coding, testing and maintenance.
Combat Management System
The Combat Management System (CMS) serves as the decision making aid at different hierarchical levels such as ships, police patrolling party, infantry unit, command headquarters, etc. It integrates all the sensors, radars, weapon systems, GPS and information of other parties for real time situational awareness.
Figure: Combat Management System
CMS is fundamentally a Command, Control, Communications, Intelligence (C3I) system. C3I has varied applications which are used in different tactical operations by the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coastal Security, Homeland Security, Airport and Seaport Security. We realise that this knowledge can also be used to make similar genre Information Systems to manage Airport Management and Energy Management too.
Airport Management System
The present day Airport management realises that in order to enable different departments contained within an airport to work in harmony, they must link and integrate their resources, people, equipment, facilities and information across the airport local or wide area network and where necessary on the web.
Figure: Information flow in Airport Management System
There are many departments on an airport that want to have information supplied in real time. Some of the information required by departments and their utility are discussed below:-
  • Air Traffic Control (ATC)
Aircraft Registration: Correct allocation of stands/air-bridges, aeronautical billing on weight of aircraft. etc
Runway Used: Assists with the planning of runway maintenance.
 Actual Time of Landing/Departure: Used for aeronautical billing of parking and can be used to trigger an update to the flight information status.
Number of Circuits and Types of Approaches: Used for aeronautical billing and statistical purposes.
New Estimates of Arrival/Departure and New Flight Information: This information can be used by airlines/handling agents and this information can also create mandatory statistics required by some Government agencies who use the information for planning purposes and in some case for airspace usage.
  • ATC Billing
The data mentioned below can be used in the calculation of the fee:-
Aircraft Registration:
Point of Entry into Air Space
Point of Departure of Air Space
Airport Point of Departure and/or Landing
Times at the Different Points of Entry or Departure
  • Airline/Handling Agents
Block On/Off Times: Used to calculate parking time, time it take aircraft types to taxi onto stand from landing and off stand to departure
Passenger and Freight Information: Used to calculate aeronautical charges and produce statistical information for load factor analysis.
Check-In Desk Opening and Closing: Used for triggering the flight information display system status remarks and by the aeronautical billing system
Departure Gate Opening and Closing: Used for triggering the flight information display system and by the aeronautical billing system
Seasonal Schedule Information: Produces the daily mayfly information, which in turn is the basis of the daily flight information display information.
  • Apron Handling
Stand Allocation: Allocation of stands by aircraft type can be displayed to ATC who can direct the aircraft to the correct stand/air-bridge.
First Bag Last Bag Times: This can assist in the apron equipment and man power planning.
Ground Services Supplied to the Aircraft: Ground services can be entered so that these items can be calculated and invoiced by the aeronautical billing system
  • Flight Information Display System
This system is really the front end to an airport management system. It displays information to the public in a format selected by the airport. The displays are made up by the information being entered or by interface or triggered from other systems.
  • Flight Information Display System
This system is really the front end to an airport management system. It displays information to the public in a format selected by the airport. The displays are made up by the information being entered or by interface or triggered from other systems.
  • Staff Management Displays
With the advent of PCs and LAN/WAN networks it is a simple task to display and update information to airport staff in real-time in whichever format they wish. Information can also be displayed via the airport web site thus allowing many additional people access to information such as Customs and Excise, Immigration etc.
  • Seasonal Schedule
This forms the basis of all commercial flight movements usually for a season. The movements can be provisional or confirmed. Airport management can then use the data to plan all of their resources and can also form the basis of a budget by utilising the financial information contained within the financial systems.
  • Invoicing
The aeronautical invoicing system needs to incorporate the following: -
▪ Cash Invoicing
▪ Credit Invoicing
Cash invoicing should cater for any size of aircraft. Credit invoicing should allow for multi-currency invoicing such as the US$, Euro, .
  • Reports
Both printed and on screen reports are a vital management tool. They can be used to improve working practices and to provide information that good business decisions can be made. The system will generate the required reports, such as, Time Table, Daily Mayfly, Load factors and Income reports, Aircrafts/Passenger movements, Traffic distribution by airline, Traffic Analysis,
  • Ledger Systems
Ledger systems should contain all financial information within the: -
▪ Sales Ledger (Accounts Receivable)
▪ Purchase Ledger (Accounts Payable)
▪ Nominal Ledger (General Ledger)
Energy Management System
Energy conservation through efficient energy management is one of the prime means of reducing environmental impact and lessening climate change. Efficient energy management is often the most economical solution in the green economy regime.
We are looking to an intelligent automation system to monitor and control systems in the buildings such as a house, office, school, hotel, hospital, airport, railway station, etc. This automation system integrates a variety of equipment through powerful network.
Figure: Intelligent Monitor and Control System
This system shall comprise of the following sub-systems:-
  • Functional Automation of cooling/heater control, ventilation control, pumps, etc.
  • Lighting control of common areas.
  • Consumption metering of water, electricity, cooling (heating) energy and gas.
  • Access control system for common areas.
  • Intruder alarm system for common areas.
  • Video monitoring system for common areas.
  • Fire alarm system.
  • Central battery system
The system can be designed to provide the following interfaces to the user:-
  • Alarm monitoring and alarm handling by multiple operators
Intruder alarm
Fire alarm.
Alarms from electrical and mechanical systems.
System maintenance alarms.
Video monitoring
  • Remote diagnostics, energy optimization and trending.
Setpoint adjustment.
Control optimization.
Peak load management.
Remote diagnostics of system/devices.
Preventive maintenance.
Consumption reports for energy management and billing
Project in Zambia
We managed US $2.3 million project of laying Optical Fibre cable and setting up antennas on Mobile Telephone towers in Malawi and Zambia.

Projects with Siemens
We undertook RAMS analysis of BHS system designed by Siemens for their projects in India and Thailand.

Software Audit
We have conducted manual testing and auditing of the software. Common problems and software failures encountered in e-governance projects.
