Tower / ACC / APP / GND Simulator for Continuation Training
For refresher, emergency and conversion training, we need to be site specific. So we should choose applications, architecture, work place constellations and roles like in the real site. If a central training center provides that service, it should preset the constellations of all concerned sites. ICAO gives allows to use representative simulated environments for this training, as it would be too dangerous to conduct it in an operational tower or control center.
But the system allows to input live data into the training system. This might be of particular value for conversion training, when a new system (e.g. a new set of antennas for SMGCS are implemented and to be trained).
For emergency training, the simulator allows to play through disaster scenarios (natural hazard, terrorism, etc). An expert systems allows to play through and compare several alternative recovery scenarios.
