SkySoft-ATM’s corporate mission is to rethink the design and implementation of airport air traffic management (ATM) systems. The company brings innovative solutions to the many challenges of air traffic control.
By combining technical performance and a human approach, SkySoft-ATM achieves high productivity, reliability and safety standards. User-friendliness and flexibility are the central themes of the company’s vision, which leads to custom-made solutions, developed in close cooperation with clients.
SkySoft-ATM is one of the market leaders for recording solutions and has successfully designed and deployed the biggest screen recording projects.
SkyRec is currently recording thousands of screens, keyboards and mice, as well as radar and voice channels worldwide.
With Albatross, SkySoft-ATM is the initiator of the first open source community in the ATM domain.
SkySoft is targeting the drone detection vibrant market providing seamless UAV traffic management components.
After 15 years of using our ATM Solution in large ATCO simulation environments, SkySoft is introducing SKYSIM, a multipurpose portable ATM Simulation Solution.
SkyVisual human-machine interface (HMI)
SkyVisual has been acclaimed by ATCOs for years. It goes far beyond a traditional ATC HMI. SkyVisual is operational for ACCs, approaches and towers.
The HMI is often the main visible part of an ATC system. ATCOs demand extensible and ergonomic systems with fast response-time and easy data access, something that has traditionally been under-evaluated by the market.
We have developed a fully responsive HMI following the EATMP ergonomic concepts, which provides efficiency and intuitive navigation, as well as safety benefits.
Customisation possibilities to meet individual needs and shortcuts to reach the right information contribute to a considerable increase in ATCO uptime.
SkyServer ATC data processing engine
ATC information has to be efficiently shared among ACC ATCOs through silent and real-time systems. Consequently, smoother and more precise flow management tools, reduction of ATCO repetitive tasks and a focus on value-added functions become a necessity.
SkyServer, which integrates many of the ATCO working rules, naturally leads to ATC automation and to outstanding airspace capacity improvements. Benefits of the SkyServer include:
- Increased capacity and service quality
- Increased safety and smoother traffic management with traffic anticipation
- Time savings thanks to the automatic conflict detection / resolution over coordination points
- The customised MTCD improves visibility of situational airspace
SkyRec BlackBox multimedia recording tool
SkyRec BlackBox is a high-performance, hardware-based multimedia recording tool. This non-intrusive solution can capture At The Glass (ATG) very high-resolution screens (including 4K ultra high-definition), as well as audio channels, mouse clicks and keyboard input. Get access to recorded data within seconds with our user friendly HMI. Export synchronised recorded data to standard media for external replay.
ATG data captured from the CWP screen is essential to most ANSPs for legal recording, post-event analysis, training purposes, or technical investigation. SkyRec BlackBox also provides synchronised voice, mouse and keyboard data, serial lines recording. It reflects an exact picture of the ATCO’s environment at any point in time.
SkyRec BlackBox is the ultimate hardware based ATC / ATM screen recording solution.
SkyRec Video Software Edition
SkyRec allows you to track all events on your controllers’ work position. The software video recording module captures exactly what your ATCO sees on screen, including mouse clicks and keyboard actions.
SkyRec Video Software Edition provides you with 100% accurate information for legal recording, post-event analysis and simulation. The software is available for Windows and Linux.
SkyRec radar and data recording
The ultimate radar data recording solution provides synchronously ‘through the wall’ radar and other ATC data recording. It is designed to work on a permanent and continuous basis for 24 hours a day, seven days per week.
In case there is a legal recording requirement, radar recording is coupled with a voice recording solution.
SkyRec Replay for data playback
SkyRec Replay is a user-friendly application for playing back all recorded data synchronously. Multiple export features are offered for archiving and post processing on portable storage media.
Embedded playback application in export file allow the immediate replay of encrypted data on any windows PC without software installation. SkyRec Replay allows users to select audio, video, radar data to replay in just a few clicks and replay them synchronously.
While playing back you can generate bookmarks, speed-up or slow down the replay, and then export synchronised data to any local or remote storage.
SkyRec Replay includes an OCR search engine to retrieve call signs, STCA, MTCD or any specific event automatically and generates bookmarks for each occurrence to allow quick access to video data of interest.
SKYSIM for ATCOS staff training
SKYSIM is a user-friendly assistant for airspace and sector changes to train operational staff when airspace changes become valid. The solution offers realistic aircraft behavior, and can be used as a procedure planning tool.
New routes and flow of traffic may be simulated in a matter of minutes. SKYSIM offers:
- Basic training
- Real-time simulation
- Procedure and airspace design
- System testing and evolution
The solution’s innovate user interface was developed in close collaboration with active controllers.
Albatross, the Open Source ATM community
SkySoft-ATM’s vision is to offer more vendor independence to customers and easier access to technology to small and medium-size airports and centres in emerging markets.
The first of a series of technologies to be contributed to the project by Skysoft-ATM will be the Albatross Display™, an advanced, flexible ATC radar display solution that will be made available to the Albatross.
Safety will not be compromised in any way, and stringent processes will be enforced in the software production and certification cycle to make sure that international safety standards, such as ESARR6, are respected.
