Airservices says contracts to design and build the software system for its Onesky air traffic control system have been signed.

The contract signing is the latest step in the development of the new air traffic management system, which aims to combine Australia’s civil and military air traffic management systems, which are currently separate, into one program.

“This contract is one of a series of works orders to enable the progression of the program to modernise air traffic management by 2021,” Airservices said in a statement on July 23.

Thales signed a “forward services contract” with the Airservices at the Avalon Airshow in February after the company was chosen as the successful supplier to start work on the system.

Parts of the Onesky system were expected to be operating by 2018, with the full rollout due to be completed in 2021.
