Si ATM ATM Systems, Simulators and Tools
Si ATM provides products and services for air traffic management. It has 30 years of experience of installing operational systems and simulators to air navigation service providers, training institutes and other aviation organisations throughout the world.
Si ATM is known for its high-quality / low risk integration of ATM systems. Flexibility and low-cost maintenance solutions distinguish the company in the competitive market of air traffic management.
Advanced air traffic management system for air traffic control
Si ATMSys is an advanced ATM system that supports air traffic control operations for en-route (ACC), approach (APP) and tower (TWR) control. Since 1999 Si ATMSys has been upgraded with functionality in conformity with the European Convergence Implementation Plan (ECIP).
Si ATMSys has been designed for and proven to be flexible and configurable for most sizes of ATC system. It processes various radar data with true multi-tracking, handles wide-area multi-lateration and ADS data for fusion with radar data.
Si ATMSys contains basic systems functions such as recording and playback as well as system monitoring and control, whilst providing operational functions as online data interchange (OLDI), datalink, medium-term conflict detection (MTCD), monitoring aids (MONA) and safety nets, with STCA, APM, MSAW and APW.
Si ATMSys, a technically advanced fault tolerant solution built upon several levels of redundancy, also contains radar bypass processing to handle emergency situations. Si ATMSys is easily expandable in size and functionality, whilst redundant in hardware and software. Si ATMSys has a cost-effective lifecycle.
Simulator for prototyping, training and realistic exercises
Si ATCSim is an air traffic control simulator that provides an operational segment on various functional levels, including:
- Basic radar training
- Training in an environment that emulates an advanced ATC system. The advanced functionality is inherited from operational systems and is well-proven
- A fully automated CNS/ATM environment for training or prototyping
- Anything between these levels, strip less or with paper strips
The simulator segment drives the exercise, generating input to the operational segment and acting as surrounding systems for the output. The main interface provides surveillance data in various forms, flight plan data in ICAO FPL or ADEXP format, meteorological systems such as ATIS, coordination with adjacent FIRs, controller/pilot communication by voice or CPDLC.
3D tower simulator for training and realistic exercises
TSim is a three-dimensional (3D) tower simulator that provides an integrated and realistic training environment for aerodrome and approach controllers.
The simulator element generates movements based on realistic manoeuvring characteristics for each aircraft type and vehicle. It handles a full set of navigational commands to support movement and route handling on the ground and in the air. The visualisation element creates the ‘out-of-the-window’ view for the aerodrome controller based on the data provided from the simulator element.
The operational elements provide training for airports with a variety of functional capabilities, including:
- Training of aerodrome controllers
- Basic radar training for approach controllers in conjunction with the tower/ground controllers
- Training in an environment that emulates an operational centre, including en-route sectors and associated functionality
- A fully automated CNS/ATM environment for training
The simulator is equipped with integrated voice communication facilities that automatically adapt to the exercises being run. Each trainee and pseudo-pilot has access to radio frequencies and direct lines within the exercise.
Standalone flight data processing system
Si FDPS is a standalone flight plan data processing system that is highly adaptable and can be integrated into most ATM environments. Si FDPS supports air traffic control flight data operations for en-route (ACC), approach (APP) and tower (TWR) control functions.
The main tasks of Si FDPS are flight plan data management and air traffic control. The Si FDPS system provides data to the flight data assistants, who collect, maintain and distribute correct flight plan data based upon RPLs, information from the AFTN, OLDI and other sources. ATC controllers receive correct flight plan information and have the ability to update it, with correct times, route, level and other data, during the progress of flights through the airspace.
Standalone surveillance data processing system
Si SDPS is a standalone surveillance data processing system. It is highly adaptable and can be integrated into most ATM environments. The Si SDPS supports air traffic control operations for en-route, approach and tower control.
Standalone arrival manager
Si AMAN is an integrated component of the Si ATMSys product, but can also be used as a standalone arrival management system that can be integrated into other systems. Si AMAN is an automated application that supports the preparation of an efficient arrival sequence by en-route and approach air traffic controllers.
Products and Services
AMAN – Arrival Manager
Si AMAN is an integrated component of the Si ATMSys product, but it can also be provided as stand-alone arrival management system complementary to, or integrated with, other systems.
FBS – Fallback Systems
Si ATM has together with users designed and developed a concept for ATC fallback systems to safely clear the sky in case of main system outage or to operate with a reduced capacity while the main system is out of service.
Si ATM was awarded a new multiple year contract with Latvian ANSP, Latvijas Gaisa Satiksme, for the extension of its ATRACC system with new operational functionality in order to comply with the SESAR programme.Read more
Si ATM has successfully delivered the Hong Kong Ultimate Fallback System, as part of a contract for the new Hong Kong ATM system.Read more
Si ATM has delivered its Arrival Manager, product name Si AMAN, to Latvian Air Navigation Service Provider LGS (SAT) in May 2013 in Riga. LGS becomes the first ANSP to validate and use the AMAN, and ordered unique functions to make sequencing for controllers an easier and more efficient task.Read more
Si ATM received the purchase order from Raytheon Incorporation, Boston, USA, on 02 May 2011. Raytheon was already awarded a contract with the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department (CAD) for the installation of a new Air Traffic Control system for the Hong Kong airspace in March 2011.Read more
Si ATM has successfully delivered an advanced ATC simulator to the Wuhan Digital Engineering Institute. The purpose with the simulator is to demonstrate, evaluate and train on modern cutting edge ATC tools.Read more
