Purpose / Description

Automation of air traffic management in the local control unit zones, approach, circuit, start and taxiing of the aerodrome.

Main characteristics

  • Maximum quantity of aircrafts being under simultaneous control at least 1500;
  • Total quantity of processed daily and current flight plans up to 30 000.

Performed functions

The equipment has a modular design and executes the following functions:


  • Automated collection and processing of radar data from primary and secondary sources and provision of data on the current and predicted air situation;
  • Collection and processing of weather data from the sources (actual weather on a runway, dangerous weather events, METAR, TAF, SPECI, SIGMET messages) and its representation combined with AS at the controller workstations;
  • uninterrupted analysis of the current and predicted air situation on absence of the conflicts and correspondence to the flight plans;
