ROCKVILLE, MD -- (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Telvent (Nasdaq:TLVT), the IT company for a sustainable and secure world, announced it will provide a new aviation information system at Antwerp airport for Belgocontrol, the autonomous public company in charge of the safety of air traffic in the civil airspace for which the Belgian State is responsible.
Belgocontrol will rely on Telvent's Automated Terminal Information System (ATIS) for information relating to terminal area operations.
