Atech develops simulation tool for controllers

World ATM Congress Atech, a company within the Embraer Group, has developed PLATAO (Advanced Platform for Training and Operational Updating), an airspace control simulation system that aims at qualifying and updating the knowledge of air traffic controllers.

The training platform allows the rendering of complex scenarios such as communication via the linking of data between the air controller and the pilot, and the scanning of aircrafts through new technologies.

PLATAO creates drills that simultaneously simulate more than one control centre operational scenario. The architecture of the system is a pioneering solution in the use of Data Distribution Service (DDS) concepts in real time, following the specifications of the Object Management Group (OMG).

The system therefore provides advanced processes of data access and sharing, plus system performance, safety, portability and scalability.
