Maintain, upgrade and customise your ATM simulators and HMI

Choosing one of our simulation platforms does not end at the moment of purchase. As an ESCAPE or eDEP user, you will be given the long-term IT support you need to get the highest possible return on investment.

With years of experience developing ATM simulators, our dedicated teams make installing, upgrading and customising your platform easier and more cost-effective, including developing a tailored human-machine interface to fully mimic your current or future system.

Maintain and upgrade the performance of your simulators

In addition to personalised assistance at every stage, as a member of our user community you will be invited to attend regular meetings to discuss best practises and improvements – together we can adapt our solutions to new contexts and applications. Fully-tested upgrades of ESCAPE and eDEP are included, as well as installation support for a seamless transition.

Customise your simulation platforms and human-machine interfaces

Each project and airspace is different. This is why we focus on customising your simulator to obtain reliable data to validate your concepts or for training purposes. We can develop a bespoke ATCO safety net or decision aid, as well as an HMI that mimics your own system. To keep costs down, we have a vast library of advanced solutions, which can be adapted to your needs.

Connecting to the world

In a wider context, if you need to connect the simulation platform to other tools, we can provide or assist in the development of the ‘bridges’. Indeed, our platform is compliant with EUROCAE WG-81, so exchanging data, on-line or off-line, with your broader technical environment always remains possible.

Use cases

A realistic Human-Machine Interface – key element of a successful simulation

The quality of a real-time simulation does not depend only on the realism of the traffic sample and the airspace, but also, and most of all, on the realism of the human machine interface. Indeed, to guarantee that metrics generated during the simulation are valid,...

ESCAPE in a demonstration of the world’s first Virtual Centre

Virtual Centres are a means to reduce fragmentation among the ATC systems in Europe and will make operations between ATS units much more flexible. They will allow multiple ATSUs to appear as a single system to airspace users. These improvements will make for...

The 4-flight Human-Machine Interface on our simulator

In the context of the French DSNA’s next generation ATC system, COFLIGHT and 4flight project, the ENAC school in Toulouse entrusted us with the creation of a replica of the 4flight human machine interface for ESCAPE. This will allow the ENAC to deliver the requested...
