World ATM Congress

DLR – German Aerospace Center and NLR – Netherlands Aerospace Centre, both members of AT-One, have the pleasure of inviting you to our stand at the World ATM Congress 2017 (Madrid, 7–9 March). We would like to take this opportunity to show you how AT-One can help you to innovate ATM, in the areas of air traffic performance, UAS integration, human factors, safety, training and environment.

Integration of UAS into ATM

The integration of UAS into non-segregated airspace remains a major goal to be achieved for future ATM systems. AT-One will showcase its research on how a stepwise UAS integration into the ATM system can be achieved without impacting conventional manned traffic. The concept combines the idea of customized ATM procedures for UAS with the concept of flight centric ATC. The concept will decrease requirements for standard avionics like radio communication onboard the UAS and offers the possibility to start UAS operations relatively easy. On site visitors will have the opportunity to experience an UAS Ground Control Station prototype in interaction with ATC-simulation including a dedicated controller working position.
Live demo presentations: Daily at 11:00 and 15:15 at the AT-One stand #951.
Conference presentation: Tuesday, 7 March at 14:45 in the Frequentis Aviation Arena (free).

Remote towers and the impact of human factors

Remote towers and the impact of human factorsThe interest for Remote Tower Operations (RTO) is increasing. ANSPs are considering implementing RTOs for good reasons. However, introducing RTOs is not only about new technology. Key to an efficient and safe operational procedure is the interface to the air traffic controller: the human factor. Controllers still need to be able to deliver the same capacity and a safe operation. AT-One conducts research and develops solutions for measurement of human behavior and operator performance assessment for remote tower applications using advanced real-time simulations. We invite you to experience controlling multiple airports yourself and find out more about human factors involved, using our eye tracking tool, at the special demo setup at our booth. See also our blog “Remote towers, the human factor”.
Live demo presentations: Daily at the AT-One stand #951.
Conference presentation: Tuesday, 7 March at 12:00 in the Aireon Spotlight Stage (free).
