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.
