Four videos provide a deep insight into SkyRadar's SMC infrastructure and exercises for ATSEP qualification in compliance with EASA's Easy Access Rules for Air Traffic Management.Parts of this article have been first published at the IFATSEA Euro-Conference 2023 in Bucharest.

The Context

Driven by Europe’s  ATM-Masterplan and ICAO’s Global Air Navigation Plan, Air Traffic Control is currently undergoing a phase of disruptive change, with direct impact of the day to day work of the ATSEPs.

Interoperability between Ground and Air as well as between distant Ground locations change the ATSEP’s working patterns. System Monitoring and Control becomes a core tool in the ATSEP’s day to day work.

All elements of the solution interplay with each other. Exercises may make use of the training radar, simulated elements, virtualized elements and the system monitoring and control solution.

SkyRadar’s SMC-packages for ATSEP

SkyRadar is the only manufacturer world-wide, who provides a comprehensive manufacturer-independant SMC training environment for ATSEP, built around a fully operational system monitoring and control tool, and supporting ATC academies to qualify their ATSEPs in compliance with ICAO’s Doc 10057 and EU’s Regulation 2017/373.

Four Videos telling the SMC Training Story

In the following 4 videos, we will give insight into the underlying smc tool (Monitoring view), then we will show how to use the Distributed Control System view.

The third video introduces a virtual reality world, allowing to keep trainees in touch with the physical infrastructure, and this making the learning process easier and more visual.

The last video shows how the SMC tool can interact with the radar infrastructure and Digital Signal Processing tool.

SkyRadar's System Monitoring & Control Solution

SkySMC - SkyRadar’s System Monitoring and Control Suite is a pedagogically enhanced, fully operational monitoring & control tool. We have optimized it to cater for the ATSEP-SMC training compliant to EASA's Easy Access Rules for ATM-ANS (Regulation (EU) 2017/373) and ICAO Doc 10057.

SkyRadar provides SkySMC as a complete laboratory in a turn-key approach, or as a service.

SkySMC is not a simulator, but a fully operational open monitoring system. It comes by default with a server including various virtualized applications and virtualized servers, but also connects to simulated systems. In addition, there are various hardware extensions available including training infrastructures, monitorable training radars, or even complete ATM systems, all connected to the System Monitoring & Control solution. 

SkyRadar's System Monitoring & Control training system can be easily blended into distance learning solutions.
