ATM and Airports

Do You Need

• Support to improve ATM and Airport Operations?
• Expert opinion or a second opinion on ATM and Airport Operations?
• Proof of the feasibility of an operational concept or product prototype through simulation and/or testing?
• Verification and/or validation of the capabilities of a product prototype or operational concept?
• Training for ATM and Airport Operations in a very realistic simulation environment?
• Evaluation of the Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) coverage performance of your ATN/VDL Mode 2 infrastructure?

We Have

• Innovative solutions and consultancy for ATM or Airport operational problems
• Unique facilities to create very realistic simulations of operational environments for area control, approach control (NARSIM-Radar) and tower control (NARSIM-Tower)
• Facilities for analysis of traffic flows and their impact on the environment (fast-time simulators TAAM and AirTOp)
• Plug-in capability for your hardware and software in our simulation facilities
• Training facilities for ATM and Airport staff adapted to your specific situation
• Multidisciplinary teams of dedicated and independent operational experts, system development experts, simulation experts, and verification and validation experts
• The means to execute test flights to evaluate the quality of service, the extent and continuity of CPDLC VDL Mode 2 coverage for your airspace according to specifications
• Evaluation capabilities for issues like round trip message transfer and the behavior of handoffs between different ground stations to maintain stable connectivity
