World ATM Congress 2022
Let’s build back better, together – AT-One helps ANSPs, airports, airlines and CAAs to recover from COVID and to build back better by providing ATM innovations, products and services to enhance resilience, reduce costs and increase efficiency, safety and sustainability.
At the upcoming World ATM Congress 2022, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Royal Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR) invite the aviation community to discuss and experience how independent research and expertise can help to innovate ATM and build back better. Visit AT-One and its research exhibits on Stand 351 at the World ATM Congress in Madrid.
Remote Tower meets Virtual Reality
ANSPs and airports benefit from synergies of remote air traffic services, but many airports are simply unable to afford such remote-tower technology. These mainly smaller airports therefore often offer only a lower level of air traffic control service. An off-the-shelf pan-tilt-zoom camera, supplemented with a basic video panorama linked to a VR headset, would be adequate for these basic service levels and, most importantly: affordable for low-revenue airports. DLR prototyped and tested such a “very low-cost” remote-tower concept and will present first results.
Speech Recognition meets Air Traffic Control
Today, the most advanced digital assistants in ATC can access large numbers of sensors that allow monitoring of air and ground traffic. These assistants do not, however, consider the vital voice communication between controller and pilot. Manual inputs account for up to one third of the working time of controllers. Assistant Based Speech Recognition (ABSR) can close the gap of digitising ATC voice communication. A live demonstration on the versatile prowess of ABSR within different applications can be seen.
Plate Lines – Mitigating Wake-Turbulence Risk
An aircraft in flight creates wake vortices: counter-rotating regions of turbulence which pose a potential threat to following air traffic. Patented plate lines, placed in front of the runway, can reduce the lifetime of wake vortices in ground proximity by about 30%. The resulting safety benefits might even allow reduced aircraft separations. This solution approach will be on display – from the theory right through to the demonstration at Vienna Airport.
