Your Local ATM Consultancy

We are proud of having over 20 years experience in the Air Traffic Management field as partner or as subcontractor to major institutions and to major industrial players, in charge of key activities for communication technologies and integration in the industry. At the same time, we own a strong understanding of the complexities and challenges of aviation and ATM from an operational and technological perspective.

Our Main Areas of Expertise

Design, deployment and operations of IP networks for Air Navigation Service Providers including security and safety aspects.

Provision of operational, technical and strategic consultancy services in support of air/ground data link services and technologies.

In a constantly changing aeronautical environment, ATM stakeholders need to develop their right strategy to execute their mission and vision statements. Obizco provides consultancy for strategy development and execution.

Obizco helps ANSPs to design, deploy and operate their migration strategy from legacy voice environment to a EUROCAE WG67 compliant migration to VOIP for air/ground and ground/ground ATC voice communication services.

Obizco intervenes as guest lecturer on various ATM/CNS training for the EUROCONTROL Institute of Air Navigation Services (IANS) and can provide many ATM/CNS training to various ATM stakeholders.

The Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is a set of best practices for IT service management that focuses on aligning IT services with the needs of the business. ITIL describes processes, procedures, tasks and checklists that are not organization-specific, establishing the management of IT services within organizations.

Obizco provides PMI or Prince2 compliant project management services. Like any human activity, projects need to be performed and delivered under constraints. Traditional economic analysis lists scope, time and costs as the main important constraints that are sometimes referred to as the project management triangle, where each side introduces a contribution to the assessment of quality and overall performance. Any side of the triangle cannot change without affecting the others. The discipline of project management focuses about providing tools and techniques enabling the project team (and not just the manager) to organize work, coordinate together, and meet constraints. By creating a common language and a framework, individual team members don’t get mired down in creating custom tools and templates. They can better understand their roles and expected contributions.

Obizco supports European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) based quality management best practices in every project.

EFQM provides a common framework and a common terminology for quality management practices. The model can be applied to any organization, regardless of size, sector, or maturity; it is no prescriptive and provides a common language enabling for the sharing of experience, of knowledge, inside the project and more widely throughout the organization and the network of stakeholders. EFQM is a Brussels-based foundation based in Brussels, created in 1988 with the European Commission support.

EURCONTROL has developed a harmonized framework for the safety regulation of ATM that is implemented by each state. The core of the framework is represented by regulatory requirements identified as ESARRs, even though these represent only a series of elements in a wider framework for ATM safety regulation. The design of the Safety Regulatory Framework and its Requirements is intended to assist the states when preparing for later audits by ICAO.

OBIZCO is committed to provide resources that have carried out various safety cases for safety critical services such as EGNOS or national ANSP IP networks in support of future ATM safety case developments.

ISO/IEC 27000 is part of a growing family of ISO standards, explaining the purpose of an information security management system (ISMS) and providing a vocabulary of fundamental terms and definitions used in this domain. The ISO 27000 series is deliberately broad in scope, covering more than just privacy, confidentiality, or technical security issues. It elaborates about information security risks, information security controls to be implemented according to needs, using guidance and ISO standards where relevant.

Future ATM functions will be more connected than ever will be therefore opening them to more IT security risk than before; a proper IT security framework has therefore to be developed around future ATM applications.

OBIZCO is committed to provide resources that have carried out various aspects of ISO2700 training and consultancy that could support implementation of ISO 27000 compliant policies and procedures.

Throughout our more than 10 years of experience in conducting CBA analysis in Air Traffic Management, EUROCONTROL has developed EMOSIA, standing for European Models for ATM Strategic Investment. We believe it represents a valuable method for informed decision-making and a common language for CBAs.

EMOSIA is the first cost-benefit analysis method developed by the European ATM/CNS community for the European ATM/CNS community. The EMOSIA methodology was developed in close cooperation with our stakeholders and considering their different needs.

The economists present in our team have worked extensively with CBA methodologies and applied them for the appraisal of economic performance in aviation programs.

Customer relationship management is acknowledged as a crucial component of corporate strategy and requires dedicated tools and methods to cope with the complexity of current projects and of the variety of the customer base. Winning complex sales has become more complicated than ever. Customers are demanding more flexible ways to purchase products and services. Customers have now also taken some crucial aspects of the selling process over, in investing in online research, in identifying potential sales solutions, and in reaching out to selling organizations in their own terms.

Miller Heiman based sales and business development plan provide with sales techniques and sales management suited to the today’s customer-focused environment, and to the related governance of industrial interactions. It is a way for the OBIZCO clients to organize thoughts, challenges, and strategies. We provide a framework to diagnose issues for our clients and to organize a solution portfolio.

The Personal and Interpersonal Effectiveness  Consultancy (PIPEC) framework ), in partnership with Franklin Covey France, elaborates about Steven R. Covey’s business and bestseller The 7 habits of highly effective people, that has been identified as one of the 25 most influential business management books by the Time magazine.

The 7 habits framework introduces a series of managerial rationales (Independence, Interdependence, and Continuous improvement) anchored in a series of habits to be imperatively introduced in actual management:

  • Independence: Be proactive; Begin with the end in mind; Put first things first.
  • Interdependence: Think win-win; Seek first to understand, then to be understood; Synergize.
  • Continuous improvement and renewal: Sharpen the saw.

Future ATM applications come with an eco-system of stakeholders, institutional and regulatory framework as well as a list of influencers and decision makers.

Obizco has supported various ATM projects with multi-stakeholders. Obizco staff members and partners have been involved as representatives of various ATM stakeholders in different fora and therefore understand deeply the viewpoints and sensitivities of each of the ATM stakeholders.

Obizco is committed to provide resources representing the various sensitivities of various ATM stakeholders in facilitating and advising on best multi-stakeholder governance applicable to each ATM project context.
