Airservices wins ISG Paragon Award for digital twin tech
Airservices has received the 2020 ISG Paragon Award (APAC) for its data-driven prediction technology, which revolutionises air traffic management. Working in partnership with Deloitte and McLaren Applied Technologies, the ‘Digital Twin of the Skies’ project was awarded in the ‘Imagination’ category for its innovative approach in enhancing real-time decision-making for a safe and reliable service to customers.
Airservices has created a digital replica of Australian airspace, including all of the aircraft and weather within the airspace. This digital twin can be used to accurately predict, collaborate with and respond to changing requirements and requests, enabling highly precise predictions and effective data-driven decision-making.
Mick Snell, Airservices Service Strategy Manager, said the award is great recognition for the company and its commitment to digital-led innovation. “We’re proud to be leading the way in embracing digital disruption and implementing new technology that will make our airspace more efficient, safe and sustainable. The benefits of enhanced decision-making are exponential for those who access our skies and we’re excited by its potential for the future,” said Snell.
The winners of the ISG Paragon Awards (APAC) were announced in August 2020, with the ‘Imagination’ category awarded to joint winners Airservices Australia and Capgemini. The event is organised by technology research and advisory firm Information Services Group. Airservices’ technology, which has gained global attention, won the vote of the independent panel of industry experts with experience in sourcing and technology. Now in its ninth year, the ISG Paragon Awards (APAC) are an initiative that identifies leading innovation and impactful sourcing partnerships.
“Airservices and its partners have been able to develop practical and targeted use cases to systematically design a new way of working in an industry that is anchored in a culture of engineered safety and efficiency,” said Don Easter, lead judge for the award category.
