Aerospace Battle Management
Aerospace Battle Management (ABM) is a key defence capability that orchestrates the aircraft and airspace, to keep the UK skies safe and protect the UK’s defence interests. This capability is often reported in the media when unauthorised foreign aircraft approach UK airspace and the Quick Response Aircraft are scrambled to intercept them, the ABM equipment and systems are a key enabler for this essential UK capability. ABM equipment and systems are also deployed to protect the UK’s interests overseas either as a fixed or deployed capability.

Osprey’s safety support and work with the SACC DT over a number of years has resulted in numerous successes; including our collaborative development of the SACC DT Acquisition Safety & Environmental Management System (ASEMS), which was commended as best practice in the ISTAR Directorate. We created a first of type Release into Service Exposition (RiSE) submission for SACC DT Air Battlespace Management (ABM) equipment in accordance with the Military Aviation Authority (MAA) Air Traffic Management (ATM) Equipment Release into Service Process (RiSP) and continue to transfer our wealth of expertise and knowledge to the team resulting in timely safety documentation to support projects during all stages of the CADMID lifecycle.
