Display System (FIDS) and AirDB 7, the latest generation ARINC Airport
Operational Database (AODB) system.

successful project implementations for other airports in our region,"

"The African aviation industry has been experiencing steady growth
over the past several years," said Paul Hickox, managing director, IMS
