Air traffic management in a crisis situation

Con­cepts for strate­gi­cal­ly deal­ing with large-scale dis­rup­tions are be­ing ex­plored.

The large-scale Air Traffic Management and Operations Simulator (ATMOS) facility is based at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) Institute of Flight Guidance in Braunschweig; it is an experimental system used for real-time simulation of any air traffic situation to investigate new air traffic control procedures. In a simulated airspace, ATMOS enables the testing of new approach and landing procedures in terms of their flight safety, pollutant reduction and traffic capacity.

ATMOS is complemented by the Airport and Control Center Simulator (ACCES), which simulates a management centre with workstations for various operators at airports. Multiple support systems are available to the operators. Control centres for numerous air traffic-related applications can be set up in this flexible facility.

Real-time simulation of air traffic

The facility offers researchers and air traffic controllers the opportunity to jointly investigate new tools for monitoring and managing air traffic. At the same time, it is possible to determine workloads and other factors affecting controllers, including in critical situations. The facility is also able to run fully automated scenarios; such experiments are used to test planning and coordination programs.

These facilities are part of the Air Traffic Validation Center. This Center provides scientists with the necessary tools to test and evaluate new ideas and technologies for all areas of air traffic management.
