  • ATCoach | UFA - Air Traffic Control Training | Air Traffic Control Simulator

    ATCoach ® Products / ATCoach ® Embedded ATC Radar Simulator Standalone ATC Radar Simulator Precision Approach Radar Simulator (PAR) Mobile Radar Simulator More ATCoach ® At A Glance UFA’s ATCoach Radar simulator is the simulator of choice for leading Air Navigation Service Providers such as the FAA, DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung, and NAV CANADA, as well as military organizations and universities around the world. ​ The ATCoach family of products excels in flexibility, supporting both En Route and Terminal traffic, and offers a wide range of configuration options, from high-fidelity fixed systems to tablets in a cloud-based environment. ATCoach’s sophisticated training options meet all objectives of basic, intermediate, and advanced ATC training programs. With a variety of scenarios that offer several degrees of complexity, beginner trainees looking for introductory, step-by-step training can use ATCoach to prepare for their jobs as controllers while experienced controllers can improve their skillset and exceed expectations. Our systems are easily customizable, allowing users to personalize the environment and display to meet training requirements or achieve personal training goals. Download product brochure: UFA ATCoach ® Advantages Comprehensive radar training Robust research and development platform Testing data generator Innovative prototyping Exercise Preparation UFA’s ATPrepare, integrated within ATCoach, provides a toolset that supports the development, modification, and preview of simulation exercises. Through its graphical interface, ATPrepare intuitively guides and aids the user through airspace and exercise creation and modification. ATPrepare supports CPDLC, flight track timing modification through point-and-click inputs, and full exercise preview and simulation utilizing UFA’s Pseudo Pilot Displays. Embedded ATC Radar Simulator At a Glance This ATCoach product offers innovative simulation technology by merging simulated target generation with operational ATC automation systems. Using the core ATCoach simulation engine, this system generates real-time surveillance sensor messages and provides or responds to flight data messages. The data is then processed by the operational ATC automation systems as if it originated from operational sensors and flight data processors, demonstrating this product’s versatile and complex performance capabilities. ​ In addition to full fidelity hardware- and software-in-the-loop training, the product also provides an extensive embedded automation system test capability. This service can be used during all automation system life cycle phases from system development to acceptance, verification, and certification, and from daily readiness testing to return-to-service testing at field operational sites. Features Radar Data Generation ​ Radar Data Generation supports the modeling of radar observations in conjunction with the modeled aircraft in the exercise. Based on the characteristics of the radar defined during exercise preparation, the function models the observation of the simulated targets and weather, formats the data, and transmits the radar messages. ATCoach supports a wide variety of messaging formats, including ASTERIX Data Categories 0, 1, 2 and 8; Mode S Data Categories 34 and 48; and ADS-B Data Category 21. Support for additional ASTERIX data categories is available. ​ Flight Plan Data Generation ​ The Flight Plan Data Generation capability is responsible for supporting Flight Plan message exchanges with the Automation System. It acts as outside air traffic control facilities that exchange ATS and OLDI messages with the Automation System. A detailed review of the messaging supported by the Operational System is needed to determine if ATCoach supports the messages and logic required. If not, our adaptable systems can easily be adjusted to support system specific requirements. ​ Simulation Interface Unit ​ For a fully immersive experience that includes changing weather patterns, our customers can look to the Weather Data Generation function. This capability formats and transmits text weather messages based on the current weather conditions. ATCoach currently supports the generation of automatic METAR messages and a general text message capability, providing multiple methods of communication to suit the user.

  • ATVoice | UFA - Air Traffic Control Training | Radar and Tower Simulator

    Products / ATVoice ® ATVoice ® At A Glance ATVoice® provides voice recognition control for UFA’s ATCoach® and ATTower® air traffic control simulation systems, as well as 3rd party systems, through the users’ spoken commands, adding realism, ease of use and flexibility to the simulation exercise. The product generates the appropriate pilot feedback/responses using a Text-To-Speech system. Multiple female and male pilot voices with distinct accents are available to increase training realism. As in the operational ATC setting, the simulation user talks directly to the pilots and the pilots in turn respond. Features ATVoice is built around a state of the art speech recognition system Accepts a user’s spoken commands, provides core recognition functions, coordinates and applies valid commands to the simulation exercise and provides appropriate pilot voice responses Responses are generated in real time based on data from the response files and the simulation application The user can control the speech rate, volume and pronunciation of each pilot’s voice. May be used in applications requiring voice recognition for non-native speakers of US English. UFA has developed several international Voice Models to support a variety of non-native speakers of US English accents and dialects Includes grammar files and tools that define the allowable voice commands or phraseology recognized by the system. In ATC applications, the grammar is typically defined in accordance with FAA, ICAO or other radio-telephony requirements. UFA optimizes each grammar to further increase recognition performance. Grammar files also include airspace specific information such as aircraft callsigns, facility names and navigational aids. ATVoice provides a mechanism, ATVgen, for dynamically adding this information to grammar files Voice Recording / Playback: Controller / pilot input can be recorded and played back with each simulation session via ATRecord Advantages ATVoice can be used as a means of controlling simulation applications, reducing or in some cases eliminating the need for human control via pseudo pilots or other means. The benefits of this approach are many: Lowers operating and recurring human resource costs Increases efficiency and throughput, particularly during high volume exercises Trains and enforces the use of proper phraseology Allows the user to independently train without extraneous resources
