For airport planners, being able to keep track of temporary and permanent obstacles within the airport and its flight path perimeters is vital.

For airport planners, being able to keep track of temporary and permanent obstacles within the airport and its flight path perimeters is vital.

SkySAFE™ allows accurate and efficient analysis of obstacles, to ensure these do not penetrate or threaten the obstacle limitation surfaces defined in regulatory guidelines. At Transoft Solutions, we pride ourselves on developing and supporting productivity-enhancing software solutions that help users to deliver projects on time and on budget.


SkySAFE’s workflow processes that ensure that no critical entry item is missed. The software is based on user input and software program methods that provide the utmost in accuracy with regard to items such as runway types (lengths and widths), displaced thresholds, longitudinal runway elevations, surface locations and dimensions, and overall 3D depictions. All this means a reduction in CAD drawing time and decreased plan generation costs.

Fixed or Temporary Obstacles

Once an airport’s operational environment has been modelled with SkySAFE™, only a few clicks are required to analyse the impact of fixed objects such as buildings, power lines, lighting pylons or trees. What’s more, these same commands can also be used to quickly and efficiently analyse temporary obstacles, such as mobile cranes. Obstacles are uniquely numbered with logical filtering to review only those that penetrate the protected airspace, quantified with the delta elevation above the surface.

Obstacle Intersection Visualisation

SkySAFE features a toolset to analyse the impact of imported or individually specified obstacles on ICAO, EASA, FAA, BMVBW (Germany) or TP312 4th/5th (Canada) limitation surfaces in a 2D or 3D environment.

Analyse Terrain Interference

SkySAFE offers functions for fast and reliable analysis based on geographical input. These capabilities allow the creation of a SkySAFE™ terrain from the import of survey coordinate data to assess resulting clearances and potential interference with approach and departure procedures.
