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, the participating ATCOs must behave like in a real operational environment and therefore must be able to use their own human machine interface. Moreover, it reduces the familiarisation time to the minimum and ATCOs can just sit and control. With the ESCAPE ATC simulation platform this is possible.

A vast library of Human-Machine Interfaces

Over the last decades EUROCONTROL has developed a vast library of HMIs used in close to one hundred real-time simulations. We now cover almost all existing and available HMIs in use in Europe, be they industry based (Thales, Indra, LEONARDO, etc.) or proprietary. These different HMIs can be freely combined in a multi-stakeholder simulation context.

Proven technology – Layered Structure

Our HMI component is based on Harris Orthogon’s ODS Tool Box, which has proved to be a robust and reliable package on which we further developed additional layers with more advanced and complex ATC-specific HMI building blocks. This significantly speeds up the production of new HMI through configuration, or the prototyping of new ATC tools emerging from research.

INNOVE is an air traffic flow management real-time simulator for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level.

INNOVE is built on off-the-shelf software technologies. Multiple actors in a simulation (e.g. Flow Managers, Airspace Users, Airport simulators) can connect to INNOVE through NM compatible web services (B2B) from any physical location.

INNOVE is an ATFM real-time simulation platform for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level. INNOVE can be used in the following areas:

  • Validation of new operational concepts, flow management and airspace management tools.
  • Studies to evaluate alternative flow management solutions in a realistic operational environment.
  • Technical verification of local flow management tool interconnectivity with NM Systems.
  • Familiarisation and study projects using NM B2B Web services.

Proven Off-the-Shelf Technology

INNOVE is implemented by using proven off-the shelf technologies like Apache Tomcat, Jetty, Hibernate, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, JAVA, SOAP, REST.

NM B2B Web Services

INNOVE offers most of the NM B2B Web Services and Publish/Subscribe services, always compatible with Operational NM Release N-1, providing client systems and HMI Tools an easy path towards integration with the operational NM system.

INNOVE can implement additional services and features at the request of projects before their final implementation in the NMVP or NM OPS system, allowing faster development cycles and risk and cost reduction.

INNOVE offers some REST services for simulation control and exchange of simulation-specific environment files between connected systems.

INNOVE B2B web services can run in a cloud-based environment allowing for distributed simulations using easy connections through the internet.

Simulator Interconnectivity

INNOVE offers customised solutions to connect to other simulators in an integrated validation platform. INNOVE comes standard with a connection to the RAMS ATC simulator, providing a closed loop simulation between ATFM and ATC. A connection to other ATC simulators like EDEP and ESCAPE is in the pipeline. INNOVE has already successfully integrated with the ATHOS Airport simulation platform.

Realistic Simulation Data and Reliable Results

INNOVE simulations are based on data recorded by the operational NM system. Traffic data is based on allFT+ data files and airspace data on DDR2 data files. NEST and RNEST can be used as tools to generate the required simulation data for an INNOVE scenario.

INNOVE can produce output files during or after an INNOVE simulation. Those files are RNEST compatible files and can be injected into RNEST analysis tools for post-simulation analysis and report production.

Indeed, to guarantee that metrics generated during the simulation are valid, the participating ATCOs must behave like in a real operational environment and therefore must be able to use their own human machine interface. Moreover, it reduces the familiarisation time to the minimum and ATCOs can just sit and control. With the ESCAPE ATC simulation platform this is possible.

A vast library of Human-Machine Interfaces

Over the last decades EUROCONTROL has developed a vast library of HMIs used in close to one hundred real-time simulations. We now cover almost all existing and available HMIs in use in Europe, be they industry based (Thales, Indra, LEONARDO, etc.) or proprietary. These different HMIs can be freely combined in a multi-stakeholder simulation context.

Proven technology – Layered Structure

Our HMI component is based on Harris Orthogon’s ODS Tool Box, which has proved to be a robust and reliable package on which we further developed additional layers with more advanced and complex ATC-specific HMI building blocks. This significantly speeds up the production of new HMI through configuration, or the prototyping of new ATC tools emerging from research.

INNOVE is an air traffic flow management real-time simulator for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level.

INNOVE is built on off-the-shelf software technologies. Multiple actors in a simulation (e.g. Flow Managers, Airspace Users, Airport simulators) can connect to INNOVE through NM compatible web services (B2B) from any physical location.

INNOVE is an ATFM real-time simulation platform for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level. INNOVE can be used in the following areas:

  • Validation of new operational concepts, flow management and airspace management tools.
  • Studies to evaluate alternative flow management solutions in a realistic operational environment.
  • Technical verification of local flow management tool interconnectivity with NM Systems.
  • Familiarisation and study projects using NM B2B Web services.

Proven Off-the-Shelf Technology

INNOVE is implemented by using proven off-the shelf technologies like Apache Tomcat, Jetty, Hibernate, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, JAVA, SOAP, REST.

NM B2B Web Services

INNOVE offers most of the NM B2B Web Services and Publish/Subscribe services, always compatible with Operational NM Release N-1, providing client systems and HMI Tools an easy path towards integration with the operational NM system.

INNOVE can implement additional services and features at the request of projects before their final implementation in the NMVP or NM OPS system, allowing faster development cycles and risk and cost reduction.

INNOVE offers some REST services for simulation control and exchange of simulation-specific environment files between connected systems.

INNOVE B2B web services can run in a cloud-based environment allowing for distributed simulations using easy connections through the internet.

Simulator Interconnectivity

INNOVE offers customised solutions to connect to other simulators in an integrated validation platform. INNOVE comes standard with a connection to the RAMS ATC simulator, providing a closed loop simulation between ATFM and ATC. A connection to other ATC simulators like EDEP and ESCAPE is in the pipeline. INNOVE has already successfully integrated with the ATHOS Airport simulation platform.

Realistic Simulation Data and Reliable Results

INNOVE simulations are based on data recorded by the operational NM system. Traffic data is based on allFT+ data files and airspace data on DDR2 data files. NEST and RNEST can be used as tools to generate the required simulation data for an INNOVE scenario.

INNOVE can produce output files during or after an INNOVE simulation. Those files are RNEST compatible files and can be injected into RNEST analysis tools for post-simulation analysis and report production.

Indeed, to guarantee that metrics generated during the simulation are valid, the participating ATCOs must behave like in a real operational environment and therefore must be able to use their own human machine interface. Moreover, it reduces the familiarisation time to the minimum and ATCOs can just sit and control. With the ESCAPE ATC simulation platform this is possible.

A vast library of Human-Machine Interfaces

Over the last decades EUROCONTROL has developed a vast library of HMIs used in close to one hundred real-time simulations. We now cover almost all existing and available HMIs in use in Europe, be they industry based (Thales, Indra, LEONARDO, etc.) or proprietary. These different HMIs can be freely combined in a multi-stakeholder simulation context.

Proven technology – Layered Structure

Our HMI component is based on Harris Orthogon’s ODS Tool Box, which has proved to be a robust and reliable package on which we further developed additional layers with more advanced and complex ATC-specific HMI building blocks. This significantly speeds up the production of new HMI through configuration, or the prototyping of new ATC tools emerging from research.

INNOVE is an air traffic flow management real-time simulator for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level.

INNOVE is built on off-the-shelf software technologies. Multiple actors in a simulation (e.g. Flow Managers, Airspace Users, Airport simulators) can connect to INNOVE through NM compatible web services (B2B) from any physical location.

INNOVE is an ATFM real-time simulation platform for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level. INNOVE can be used in the following areas:

  • Validation of new operational concepts, flow management and airspace management tools.
  • Studies to evaluate alternative flow management solutions in a realistic operational environment.
  • Technical verification of local flow management tool interconnectivity with NM Systems.
  • Familiarisation and study projects using NM B2B Web services.

Proven Off-the-Shelf Technology

INNOVE is implemented by using proven off-the shelf technologies like Apache Tomcat, Jetty, Hibernate, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, JAVA, SOAP, REST.

NM B2B Web Services

INNOVE offers most of the NM B2B Web Services and Publish/Subscribe services, always compatible with Operational NM Release N-1, providing client systems and HMI Tools an easy path towards integration with the operational NM system.

INNOVE can implement additional services and features at the request of projects before their final implementation in the NMVP or NM OPS system, allowing faster development cycles and risk and cost reduction.

INNOVE offers some REST services for simulation control and exchange of simulation-specific environment files between connected systems.

INNOVE B2B web services can run in a cloud-based environment allowing for distributed simulations using easy connections through the internet.

Simulator Interconnectivity

INNOVE offers customised solutions to connect to other simulators in an integrated validation platform. INNOVE comes standard with a connection to the RAMS ATC simulator, providing a closed loop simulation between ATFM and ATC. A connection to other ATC simulators like EDEP and ESCAPE is in the pipeline. INNOVE has already successfully integrated with the ATHOS Airport simulation platform.

Realistic Simulation Data and Reliable Results

INNOVE simulations are based on data recorded by the operational NM system. Traffic data is based on allFT+ data files and airspace data on DDR2 data files. NEST and RNEST can be used as tools to generate the required simulation data for an INNOVE scenario.

INNOVE can produce output files during or after an INNOVE simulation. Those files are RNEST compatible files and can be injected into RNEST analysis tools for post-simulation analysis and report production.

Indeed, to guarantee that metrics generated during the simulation are valid, the participating ATCOs must behave like in a real operational environment and therefore must be able to use their own human machine interface. Moreover, it reduces the familiarisation time to the minimum and ATCOs can just sit and control. With the ESCAPE ATC simulation platform this is possible.

A vast library of Human-Machine Interfaces

Over the last decades EUROCONTROL has developed a vast library of HMIs used in close to one hundred real-time simulations. We now cover almost all existing and available HMIs in use in Europe, be they industry based (Thales, Indra, LEONARDO, etc.) or proprietary. These different HMIs can be freely combined in a multi-stakeholder simulation context.

Proven technology – Layered Structure

Our HMI component is based on Harris Orthogon’s ODS Tool Box, which has proved to be a robust and reliable package on which we further developed additional layers with more advanced and complex ATC-specific HMI building blocks. This significantly speeds up the production of new HMI through configuration, or the prototyping of new ATC tools emerging from research.

INNOVE is an air traffic flow management real-time simulator for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level.

INNOVE is built on off-the-shelf software technologies. Multiple actors in a simulation (e.g. Flow Managers, Airspace Users, Airport simulators) can connect to INNOVE through NM compatible web services (B2B) from any physical location.

INNOVE is an ATFM real-time simulation platform for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level. INNOVE can be used in the following areas:

  • Validation of new operational concepts, flow management and airspace management tools.
  • Studies to evaluate alternative flow management solutions in a realistic operational environment.
  • Technical verification of local flow management tool interconnectivity with NM Systems.
  • Familiarisation and study projects using NM B2B Web services.

Proven Off-the-Shelf Technology

INNOVE is implemented by using proven off-the shelf technologies like Apache Tomcat, Jetty, Hibernate, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, JAVA, SOAP, REST.

NM B2B Web Services

INNOVE offers most of the NM B2B Web Services and Publish/Subscribe services, always compatible with Operational NM Release N-1, providing client systems and HMI Tools an easy path towards integration with the operational NM system.

INNOVE can implement additional services and features at the request of projects before their final implementation in the NMVP or NM OPS system, allowing faster development cycles and risk and cost reduction.

INNOVE offers some REST services for simulation control and exchange of simulation-specific environment files between connected systems.

INNOVE B2B web services can run in a cloud-based environment allowing for distributed simulations using easy connections through the internet.

Simulator Interconnectivity

INNOVE offers customised solutions to connect to other simulators in an integrated validation platform. INNOVE comes standard with a connection to the RAMS ATC simulator, providing a closed loop simulation between ATFM and ATC. A connection to other ATC simulators like EDEP and ESCAPE is in the pipeline. INNOVE has already successfully integrated with the ATHOS Airport simulation platform.

Realistic Simulation Data and Reliable Results

INNOVE simulations are based on data recorded by the operational NM system. Traffic data is based on allFT+ data files and airspace data on DDR2 data files. NEST and RNEST can be used as tools to generate the required simulation data for an INNOVE scenario.

INNOVE can produce output files during or after an INNOVE simulation. Those files are RNEST compatible files and can be injected into RNEST analysis tools for post-simulation analysis and report production.

Indeed, to guarantee that metrics generated during the simulation are valid, the participating ATCOs must behave like in a real operational environment and therefore must be able to use their own human machine interface. Moreover, it reduces the familiarisation time to the minimum and ATCOs can just sit and control. With the ESCAPE ATC simulation platform this is possible.

A vast library of Human-Machine Interfaces

Over the last decades EUROCONTROL has developed a vast library of HMIs used in close to one hundred real-time simulations. We now cover almost all existing and available HMIs in use in Europe, be they industry based (Thales, Indra, LEONARDO, etc.) or proprietary. These different HMIs can be freely combined in a multi-stakeholder simulation context.

Proven technology – Layered Structure

Our HMI component is based on Harris Orthogon’s ODS Tool Box, which has proved to be a robust and reliable package on which we further developed additional layers with more advanced and complex ATC-specific HMI building blocks. This significantly speeds up the production of new HMI through configuration, or the prototyping of new ATC tools emerging from research.

INNOVE is an air traffic flow management real-time simulator for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level.

INNOVE is built on off-the-shelf software technologies. Multiple actors in a simulation (e.g. Flow Managers, Airspace Users, Airport simulators) can connect to INNOVE through NM compatible web services (B2B) from any physical location.

INNOVE is an ATFM real-time simulation platform for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level. INNOVE can be used in the following areas:

  • Validation of new operational concepts, flow management and airspace management tools.
  • Studies to evaluate alternative flow management solutions in a realistic operational environment.
  • Technical verification of local flow management tool interconnectivity with NM Systems.
  • Familiarisation and study projects using NM B2B Web services.

Proven Off-the-Shelf Technology

INNOVE is implemented by using proven off-the shelf technologies like Apache Tomcat, Jetty, Hibernate, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, JAVA, SOAP, REST.

NM B2B Web Services

INNOVE offers most of the NM B2B Web Services and Publish/Subscribe services, always compatible with Operational NM Release N-1, providing client systems and HMI Tools an easy path towards integration with the operational NM system.

INNOVE can implement additional services and features at the request of projects before their final implementation in the NMVP or NM OPS system, allowing faster development cycles and risk and cost reduction.

INNOVE offers some REST services for simulation control and exchange of simulation-specific environment files between connected systems.

INNOVE B2B web services can run in a cloud-based environment allowing for distributed simulations using easy connections through the internet.

Simulator Interconnectivity

INNOVE offers customised solutions to connect to other simulators in an integrated validation platform. INNOVE comes standard with a connection to the RAMS ATC simulator, providing a closed loop simulation between ATFM and ATC. A connection to other ATC simulators like EDEP and ESCAPE is in the pipeline. INNOVE has already successfully integrated with the ATHOS Airport simulation platform.

Realistic Simulation Data and Reliable Results

INNOVE simulations are based on data recorded by the operational NM system. Traffic data is based on allFT+ data files and airspace data on DDR2 data files. NEST and RNEST can be used as tools to generate the required simulation data for an INNOVE scenario.

INNOVE can produce output files during or after an INNOVE simulation. Those files are RNEST compatible files and can be injected into RNEST analysis tools for post-simulation analysis and report production.
