The event brought together representatives from the world of manned and unmanned aviation to demonstrate technology and services.

ANSART B.V. was rather excited to showcase its solutions and meet guests, customers, partners and associates.

Our team was lucky to meet great people and establish new relationships. We are looking forward to a productive collaboration.

Overall, the event was full of new experiences, interesting meetings and engaging conversations. 

 

A new product was prepared for a demonstration

SIMULATED SERVICES

“Previously confined to classroom teaching and learning on the job,  air traffic control training is becoming more accessible and  flexible thanks to new technology and work habits”

by Jennifer Beechener reports, @RegionalGateway

 

 

 

Air traffic control (ATC) is transforming how it teaches and maintains the specialised skills needed to manage air traffic safely. Several factors lie behind the changes. Plainly, the pandemic has led to a universal shift to online and remote services across multiple industries. However, until very recently, the high definition, precision graphics capabilities necessary to generate air traffic control scenarios limited the industry’s ability to recreate scenarios via web-based services accurately. Now improved computer processing power, coupled with technology sourced from the gaming sector, is enabling the first cloud-based AlC training services to be delivered and embraced by a new generation of computer-literate trainees.

 

SIMULATED SERVICES

Another innovative development by Dutch company ANSART introduces Product-as-a-Service to help customers looking to minimise initial investment costs when shouldering the up-front financial hit of installing an ATC simulator. The company’s 3D display visualisation supports combined tower and radar training with fully integrated hardware-or software-based voice communications and built-in record and playback capabilities. The basic package comes with ready-to-use training exercises, or ANSART can customise the software. ANSART Marketing Manager, Kate Arlouskaya, says: “The customer pays in small instalments and can stop at any time. It can run on a customer’s hardware or we can supply this in addition to maintaining, servicing and upgrading as needed.”

The company’s tower simulator operates in Lithuania, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey, in addition to larger installations at European training academies. After several years of supplying ATC equipment to prime contractors, ANSART began marketing under its own name in 2018, backed by a strong software development team in its Polish production facilities. “We set out to match client expectations from the outset and implement our projects on a turnkey basis,” says Arlouskaya.

Apron management achieved in a SAFE and ORDERLY WAY

“Airpot apron management can be improved
in several ways with the use of the latest
ADS-B technology  combined with data analysis tools.”
– Serge Miranovich, ANSART CEO

The flight starts at the parking area of the departure airport and ends at the same place at the destination airport. Airport operators and ANSPs provide flight management during operations in their area of responsibility. They also collaborate in managing the ground traffic that occurs in the airfield, which is defined by ICAO as “the part of an aerodrome to be used for the take-off, landing and taxiing of aircraft, consisting of the manoeuvring area and the apron”.

ANSPs are responsible for surface operations and air traffic controllers manage clearness, instructions and collision prevention in a non-A-SMGCS (Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System) environments. They also manage separation between aircraft, and aircraft and vehicles in A-SMGCS environments.

The apron area is the responsibility of the airport operator, and apron traffic management requires the regulation of the activities and movement of aircraft, vehicles and personnel in this area.

This is called apron management services (AMS).

Does the apron management service need automation?

Apron management services vary at different airports, which have apron areas with different configurations and with different techniques used for operations. This is one reason why it is a challenge to provide AMS. Often, the limited visibility of the apron prevents determining the exact location of the aircraft, the situation in blind spots and parking areas.

All these aspects affect situational awareness and monitoring, making it impossible to predict and evaluate the situation correctly.

The airport operator assumes the AMS. It is responsible for movement regulation to prevent collisions between aircraft, between aircraft and obstacles, coordination of entry and exit aircraft to an apron area with the ANSP Tower Control and safe movement of vehicles and coordination of other activities.

To provide all of these services, the airport operator needs an automated system to improve ground traffic situational awareness, reduce the number of incidents, and set up proper apron management.

The solution

After many years of working with ADS-B technology, ANSART has developed an efficient and effective platform called the “Airport Ground Movement Display System” (AGMDS). The system enables the creation of a solution that automates processes related to apron management services and can meet specific customer needs while collecting data about events for analysis.

The platform’s concept is based on the tools, but not functions available to the customer. For example, instead of developing a list of predefined events, ANSART has developed a tool to describe them. Following up on our customer care philosophy, we have built the solution based on COTS hardware and developed web applications offered as SaaS (Software as a Service).

ANSART’s AGMDS solution can work as a fully independent standalone system and as an extension for airport operators to their existing A-SMGCS system. It makes AGMDS attractive for airport operators who are willing to automate AMS and improve ground traffic situation awareness. It is also suitable for air ANSPs willing to extend existing A-SMGCS with portable devices.

Data analysis

Data analysis is a crucial process in decision making and forecasting when safety depends on it. By bringing high quality data to the right people, additional insights can be gained, and operations improved.

ANSART’s AGMDS collects all processed data and stores it in standard formats such as .xls or .csv, making it available for analysis, to calculate any necessary KPIs, to increase the speed of the problem identification, and to build efficient decision making.

Benefits of the AGMDS platform

AGMDS is a forward-looking solution for the digital transformation of business processes. It improves customers’ operational, technical, administrative and financial aspects. The platform helps to increase efficiency and productivity, improves resource management, build resiliency and agility, develops innovations, creativity and collaboration, expanding transparency and visibility.

On top of that, the SaaS solution enables the optimization of investments by cost migration from CAPEX to OPEX. ANSART’s AGMDS and other products can be seen in our showroom or demonstrated online.
