Electronic navigation charts management with public hydrographic web map

read more

We are prepared to transform your hydrographic data into a web-based Hydrographic Database Management System with GIS tools (HIS).

HIS is an information system for managing and presenting data from hydrographic surveys.

It can also produce high quality fairsheets to simplify the process of the production of electronic navigational charts.

Maritime safety

Hydrographers and Cartographers can take decisions based on location information. It is a vital feature considering the constant changing of the underwater situation.

The system consists of two main parts: a seamless database of depths (soundings) and a database of objects. The objects for the system are collected from hydrographic surveys – survey areas, wrecks, navigational marks, rocks and obstructions.

For every object extensive information can be stored in HIS, containing its location, classification and attributes, and also images. HIS also provides a wide range of user-friendly GIS management tools for managing and presenting surveyed data.

Central ePrescription system and its interfaces

By 2013

Three years and 300 000 €

Hannes Danilov, the member of the board at the Health Insurance Fund

We are pleased to say that we have a digital prescription system that is a model for other countries

In the search for efficiency and excellence, the Estonian Health Insurance Fund and the Ministry of Social Affairs started the project of e-Prescription in Estonia.

The paper prescription system, that was in use before, wasted the time of all parties involved in the prescribing and buying/selling of medications.

The scarce resource of a doctor’s appointment time was wasted on writing recurring prescriptions and the patients had to spend time waiting for their appointment.

Some prescriptions would get lost, some would include the wrong percentage of subsidy by the Health Insurance Fund. The collection of statistics and data is costly and all parties must waste time on reporting the same data at different times. The new system was designed as a centralized and paperless system to be used by all doctors, patients and pharmacies.

The central system was developed by the state in cooperation with Helmes. The information systems of medical practices and pharmacies were integrated and updated by their service providers. Helmes also developed a central online interface for doctors and pharmacies who have less prescriptions to process or whose developments were not ready by the time of launching e-Prescription.

Helmes has partnered TeliaSonera’s Estonian affiliate for many years in developing a demand-driven supply chain management information system. In close cooperation with the client, the system was developed in order to minimize lost sales with the optimum amount of goods in stock at any time.

Satisfaction with the solution as well as a positive cooperation experience provided Helmes with the opportunity to present an offer in TeliaSonera’s central procurement of a Common Demand and Purchase

Planning Tool (CDPPT) which would:

  • maintain maximum availability of consumer electronics;
  • reduce man-hours spent fulfilling it; and
  • develop an automated monitoring module so that errors in logistics processes would be discovered as soon as possible.

Competing with world-class software providers’ products, Helmes was chosen to develop a custom solution that would precisely reflect TeliaSonera’s innovative supply chain management process.

Compared to its competitors, Helmes offered maximum flexibility and agility, which were considered crucial when providing the shortest time to market in order to reduce the payback period of the investment.

Serving civil air traffic control data to military air surveillance

read more

Secondary surveillance radar (SSR) is a radar system used in air traffic control (ATC), that not only detects and measures the position of aircraft i.e. range and bearing, but also requests additional information from the aircraft itself such as its identity and altitude.

Unlike primary radar systems that measure only the range and bearing of targets by detecting reflected radio signals, SSR relies on targets equipped with a radar transponder, which replies to each interrogation signal by transmitting a response containing encoded data.

SSR is based on the military identification friend or foe (IFF) technology originally developed during World War II and therefore the two systems are still compatible.

  • The secondary Source radar identifies a flying objects in the air space, with SSR code
  • A civil air traffic control operators then identifies the unknown flying object, and associates the SSR code with the appropriate civil flight number
  • The association then has to be served for military air surveillance as soon as possible. This means in real-time.

 The flight associations are available in the civil air control system in form of:

  • Online Data Interchange (OLDI) transit messages from other air traffic control systems
  • New flight associations created by the operator of the air traffic controller workstation

 The custom made information system developed by R-Systems Ltd

  • extracts the necessary data (1-2% of all of the data)
  • composes the messages according to the Online Data Interchange (OLDI) format, a standard by European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation.
  • combines OLDI messages with the Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunication Network (AFTN) messages from flight plans
  • transmits everything to the military air surveillance system

Flightwatch For Airport

  • The FlightWatch Server
  • The link to Air Traffic Control center
  • The Airport Dispatcher Workstation
  • The Radar and Flight Data Monitors
  • Noise Monitoring System

For linking the flights with radar data the FlightWatch system exploits the associations between the radar code and the flight plan created by air traffic controllers. The flights are determined according to the flight CallSign. The active flights table is created, where the flight plan data is collected and relevant changes are made. The active flights table is supplemented with the secondary source radar (SSR) code after the air traffic controller has made the appropriate association.

The result is displayed int workstations on cartographic background.

Data exchange service Message Hub

read more

Helmes has launched Message Hub for financial institutions provided by NasdaqOMX, a message exchange environment, which is easily compatible with other modern post-trade solutions available in Europe. 

Message Hub is a solution made for data exchange in real time between securities market participants and it guarantees a data exchange security level that corresponds to international standards.

The aim of the project was to simplify and unify communications between internal subsystems and external clients. Securities settlement and servicing of corporate actions is implemented by exchanging data between the banks and brokerage companies and the securities depositories of the Baltic countries using special encoded messages: they will be sent via the new data exchange service Message Hub.

Up to now, market participants in each of the countries were sending their messages using systems that differed from country to country. The new data exchange service is a significant step towards the Baltic securities market harmonization and development and will make settlement in the Baltic market even more convenient.

Aivars Slokenbergs, Chairman of the Management board of Latvian Central Depository

The top security offered by message hub deserves a special mentioning, since the aspect is critical for financial markets
