Atech develops a simulation system for training air traffic controllers

PLATAO will be introduced at the World ATM Congress taking place in Spain from March 7 to 9

- São Paulo, Brasil

With the goal of providing complete and integrated solutions, Atech, a company of 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 system will be one of the company’s highlights at the World ATM Congress in Madrid, Spain, from March 7 to 9.

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. In this solution conceived by Atech, PLATAO creates drills that simultaneously simulate more than one control center 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.
