StarCaster: The International Choice for Digital ATIS

VICTORIA, BC, Canada – May 2, 2012. StarCaster ATIS continues to be the preferred solution of Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) worldwide because it increases the safety and efficiency of air traffic control operations. Over the past year, StarCaster was selected for installation by ANSPs in Azerbaijan, British Virgin Islands, Chile, Egypt, Ghana, Iraq, Mexico, Mozambique, Nigeria, and the United States of America.

The StarCaster ATIS system is a software and hardware solution that provides air traffic controllers with a way to rapidly generate clear and consistent Automatic Terminal Information Service (ATIS) broadcasts in a natural human voice. StarCaster is a cost-effective solution for ATC sites worldwide, allowing for rapid creation of ATIS broadcasts in about 30 seconds.

Unlike other ATIS solutions, StarCaster ATIS is not based on a voice synthesizer. A natural human voice is used with text-to-speech technology to produce a highly intelligible aviation broadcast. This is especially critical to international sites where Air Traffic Controllers’ first language is not necessarily English, the language of aviation. The Ghana Civil Aviation Authority has recently reported that “the StarCaster ATIS system has now become an integral part of the air traffic control services provided by the KIA control tower.” With many more opportunities in 2012 and 2013, StarCaster ATIS will continue to gain support worldwide.
