The object of the aeronautical information service (AIS) is to ensure the flow of aeronautical data and aeronautical information necessary for global air traffic management (ATM) system safety, regularity, economy and efficiency in an environmentally sustainable manner. The role and importance of aeronautical data and aeronautical information changed significantly with the implementation of area navigation (RNAV), performance-based navigation (PBN), airborne computer-based navigation systems, performance-based communication (PBC), performance based surveillance (PBS), data link systems and satellite voice communications (SATVOICE). Corrupt, erroneous, late, or missing aeronautical data and aeronautical information can potentially affect the safety of air navigation.
AIM Directorate, which forms part of the Sudan Civil Aviation
Authority, provide the service within the area of its responsibility as indicated under subsection GEN 1.2 Sudan AIP. It consists of AIS/AIM Headquarters, International NOTAM Office (NOF) Publication unit, Aerodrome AIS units and Procedures Design and Cartography unit.
