SkyRadar's aerodrome simulator builds on a fully operational ATC / ATM System (with many operational references) connected to a simulation environment. Being implemented by many civil aviation authorities, it has by default to be compliant with ICAO standards and national regulations.
- airspace with all its properties such as AIP based elements real and fictive
- weather conditions
- traffic in the airspace in the air and on the ground as an analogy of the natural environment of an operational ATC / ATM System, creating the illusion that it sits in its „normal“ environment and technical context.
- Generation of normal as well as abnormal / emergency situations
- High efficiency teaching tools based on cognitive psychology research.
Compliance to ICAO and EUROCONTROL standards
Design of the system is fully in compliance with ICAO and EUROCONTROL standards and recommendations and the manufacturer is certified for design, development and implementation of Aviation Ground Facilities. This means that all components of the simulator are designed, developed and manufactured according to the same quality and reliability standards as operational ATM Systems.
Simulator is built around a standard ATM System embracing it by sources of simulated data as if these were coming from real sensors, CFMU, adjacent sectors, meteo systems etc.
In particular, the solution is compliant with the following norms and aviation standards:
