ADVANCED EN-ROUTE & TERMINAL SURVEILLANCE RADAR (A-ETSR)
The ADVANCED EN-ROUTE & TERMINAL SURVEILLANCE RADAR (A-ETSR) is the heart of our simulator. One of its unique aspects is the high level of integration between En-ROUTE, APPROACH, and TOWER simulation scenarios. The platform modules are designed to work either individually as TOWER, APPROACH, or En-ROUTE simulators, or they may be configured at any time to work together in an integrated manner.
The tool is designed with ATC training and testing in mind and is intended to provide a realistic simulation of a RADAR system. To accomplish this, the tool can process various types of radar data, including MSSR Modes S/3A/C and PSR tracks, as well as correlated MSSR and PSR tracks, and ADS-B tracks.
In addition to that, the tool comes equipped with several advanced features. For instance, it can generate alerts for Short-Term Conflict (STCA) and Minimum Safe Altitude Warnings (MSAW), which help controllers build the skills to monitor and avoid potential conflicts between aircraft. It can also provide Dangerous Area Infringement Warnings (DAIW) when an aircraft approaches restricted airspace and Generate Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) alerts.
The Pseudo-Pilot and Supervisor Working Positions are designed to have access to all functions specific to an aircraft in flight or on the ground, including the SSR Code selection and SPI (Ident). Any SSR code can be assigned, including 7500, 7600, and 7700. Moreover, it enables the activation of the transponder, mode C activation, and selection of the biased altitude so as to generate the wrong indication for the controller's working position.
The system is highly versatile, allowing for the emulation of existing operational positions to perform sectorization, collapse, expansion, or merging of controller working positions as required. Furthermore, the exercises performed during the simulation can be recorded and reproduced in synchronized data and audio format, which is useful for training and analysis purposes.
