About Us

CS SOFT is a traditional, state-of-the-art provider of Air Traffic Management and General Aviation solutions. Over the past 30 years, the company has evolved from a small Czech-based business pioneering in ATM software into a dynamic European company with advanced software development methodology, extensive experience, rich product portfolio and successful civil and military installations on four continents. Our strong emphasis on flexibility and customer orientation enables us to deploy customized and reliable solutions, which are fully compliant with the industry recommendations and regulations, at a cost that may actually pleasantly surprise potential business partners.

Company CS SOFT is member of industrial group CZECHOSLOVAK GROUP and its division CSG Aerospace. There are also other renowned civil and military ATM and Radar providers such as Eldis, Retia, ATRAK and MSM Group. Jointly, we are able to cover a wide portfolio range including flight data processing systems, surveillance data processing systems, controller working positions, ATC simulators, radars and sensors, recording systems, mobile towers and much more.

Main Areas of Activity

We, at CS SOFT, are fully aware of the tremendous responsibility that we have being a provider of ATM and GA solutions. With this in mind, we have designed our solutions together with the subject-matter experts to ensure safe and seamless flow of air traffic and smooth and cost-effective airport operations.

Our team specializes in designing, implementing and maintaining systems for air traffic control centers (ACC), approach (APP), tower (TWR) and flight information services (FIS) and 2D and 3D Simulators. The complete ATM systems and stand-alone modules assist in processing of flight plan data and surveillance data, which are essential for accurate display of air traffic situation, flight trajectory computations, evaluation of potential conflicting trajectories etc. Simulators follow the concept of Hi-Fi (high fidelity). In fact, they accurately copy controller’s workplace (interface, environment, communication with pseudopilots etc.) to provide the highest quality training possible.

CS SOFT has also developed interconnected tools enabling secure (multi-stage) and comprehensive distribution (sorting, filters, etc.) of sensitive surveillance data between various airport entities such as emergency service units, handling agencies, airport operations etc. The tools offer a possibility to display the data, access an archive, replay the stored data just to mention some. The functionalities could come in handy, especially when dealing with the authorities.

CS SOFT - Company Policy

CS SOFT - a reliable partner with high expertise, quality and a competitive price

The year 2019 was successful for the company. With the contribution of all employees, we managed to achieve the historically highest turnover of the company. At the same time, CS SOFT was able to meet the set management plan, despite the fact that there was a significant increase in existing capacity and expansion of office space. During the year, the CS SOFT team carried out several significant orders for domestic and foreign customers, including the extension of some service contracts. However, we did not fall behind in the field of internal development, when the standardized ALS ATM 3.1 system was completed and finally tested, which is primarily intended for resale for smaller air traffic control centers. In September 2019, we successfully completed three-year cooperation with ANS CR on the research project SESAR PJ18 - 4D Trajectory Management by organizing an Open Day, to which representatives of renowned companies such as Eurocontrol, Airbus, Indra, and Leonardo were also invited.

We have several goals for 2020. One of them is the successful completion of a promisingly negotiated cooperation with an important, strategic partner from the field. After years, we would like to finally conclude a joint project with ELTA to supply a civilian ATM system to Uganda. We will continue to make every effort to contract a higher number of foreign orders and thus meet shareholders' expectations and our ambitions, which we set when formulating the medium-term strategy in 2018. During the year, we expect the service contract to be extended to our main customer, and the development of the existing operating system is going to continue. This year also saw structural changes in the CSG AEROSPACE division, which should ensure greater coherence between sister companies and lead to more business opportunities for both CS SOFT and other companies. As part of internal development, we want to determine the final form of migration of two key products of CS SOFT so as to make our work as efficient and faster as possible. Of course, this year we will continue to fulfill the partial steps resulting from the already approved development roadmap.

Personnel & Company

CS SOFT is a company that keeps its word

CS SOFT is a company that strictly observes all laws, regulations, and rules and keeps its word in all areas of its activity. We have trained and will strictly adhere to the principles arising from the company's internal guidelines, the adopted Moral Code, and the Office's Protection. Last year, internal processes were adapted in accordance with the European GDPR Regulation. We very much appreciate the work that employees do for the company, but especially their loyalty, which is evident when looking at the annual statistics of turnover and overtime worked. That is why, last but not least, we want to improve the working conditions of our employees in the future and keep a positive atmosphere in the workplace.

Work ethic & Expertise

CS SOFT: Flexible subject matter experts in ATM solutions

In order to survive in a complex business environment and meet the company's medium-term strategic goals, we must constantly use and improve our existing strengths, which are in particular high expertise, years of experience, customer orientation, speed, flexibility, and precise project management. At the same time, however, we must make more effective use of the sales networks offered by cooperation with other sister companies within the division and to establish other forms of cooperation with foreign entities. We continue in an effort to profile ourselves in the market as experts on difficult tasks with a high degree of customization, which need to be solved in the shortest possible time.

Quality Assurance, Operational and Cyber Security

CS SOFT always guarantees the use of secure and documented SW development methods

We constantly emphasize compliance with professional standards that ensure high-quality development, including the systematic identification and management of risks with an impact on the operational and cybersecurity of the products being developed. The methodological basis is the series of ISO 9000 and ISO 27000 standards, the series of EUROCAE standards, such as ED-153 or ED-205, as well as the methodologies of EUROCONTROL (SAM) and EASA (Easy Access Rules for ATM-ANS).

Research & Development

Innovations in CS SOFT

To achieve high goals, it is necessary to carry out our own research and development. A baseline product has been created, which we are able to offer with defined features. We managed to significantly improve the documentation coverage for commercially interesting products. The PM Department took over the management of bid preparation from the Sales Department, and the entire Order Implementation Department strives to support business activities. At the same time, the "Research and Vision" department was created with firm rules for its operation. This year, we should continue our cooperation with ANS CR on the further development of the main ATM system.

EU subsidy
