Aquila Air Traffic Management Services

Aquila Air Traffic Management Services (ATMS) was formed in 2014 as a joint venture between National Air Traffic Services (NATS), air navigation services specialist and Thales, the primary supplier of equipment and services for UK Air Traffic Management (ATM).

Aquila was awarded the £1.5 billion, 22 year Project Marshall contract by the MOD in 2014.  In partnership with the MoD, Aquila is responsible for providing a new state of the art suite of air traffic management technologies and maintaining and operating them at airbases throughout the UK and at forward operating bases overseas. Fundamentally Aquila and Project Marshall enable all military aviation to safely and efficiently discharge their missions around the globe.

Beyond Project Marshall, Aquila is also an expanding business with the ambition to acquire new clients and contracts and is therefore looking to build a workforce of exceptional individuals who can help push the organisation into the future.
