ATC Simulator is intended for training, professional development, certification assessment of air traffic controllers as well as for research of air traffic management.

ATC Simulator supports all procedures and functions of air traffic controller workstations for Area Control Centre (ACC), Approach (APP), Aerodrome Control Tower (TWR) as well as for Military Control Tower.



ATC Simulator consists of typical training modules (TM) used to create, conduct exercises and record exercises in local mode.

The training module includes:

  • 01.

    Pilot-instructor working position (WP-PI);

  • 02.

    Flight Planning working position (WP-P);

  • 03.

    Executive controller working position (WP-E).

Each working position is equipped with communication consoles for communication between controllers and pilots.

To conduct a complex training, the training modules can be combined into training groups (TG) and training complex (TC) from the supervisor working position (WP-SV).


ATC Simulator models air traffic in the area of responsibility defined by the user. The structure of modeled airspace contains description of static parameters:

  • ATC sectors (ACC and/or APP);
  • aerodromes
  • types of aircraft;
  • holding areas;
  • ATC points;
  • ATC routes;
  • parameters of Safety Nets;
  • flight restriction areas, etc.

ATC Simulator also models:

  • Radar sensors:
    1. primary radars (PSR);
    2. secondary radars (SSR) including Mode S support;
    3. automatic direction finders (ADF);
  • Weather data;
  • Air traffic;
  • “Air-ground” communication.

ATC Simulator features MTBF of 5000 hours and service life of minimum 10 years.

  • Playback of recorded voice and data.

Functions of working positions


  • Creation and configuration of TM and TG;
  • Storing all created configurations of TM and TG, storing exercise database;
  • Application of selected configuration of TM and TG;
  • Time synchronization of simulator equipment.


Exercise preparation:

  • Creation of aircraft flights plans;
  • Description of weather events;
  • Description of general events;
  • Storing exercises;
  • Editing existing exercises.

Exercise performance:

  • Adjustment of exercise parameters (simulation of departure/ arrival, OLDI);
  • Time entry, exercise Start;
  • Manual flight control on controller's instruction (deviation from the flight plan);
  • Voice communication between pilots and controllers;
  • Voice interaction with controllers from adjacent ATC units.

WP- E, WP-P:

  • Presentation of air traffic (tracks/plots) on the map background;
  • Displaying SFPL, sector planning;
  • Automatic and manual aircraft handover;
  • En-route, on departure and arrival flight planning;
  • Indication of Safety Nets and MONA procedures, MTCD;
  • Equipment and process management;
  • Displaying weather, aeronautical and reference information;
  • CPDLC support.

Voice Communication System

All working positions are equipped with communication consoles providing:

  • Radio communication between pilots and controllers, aircraft bearing mapping;
  • Radio communication between pilots;
  • Controller communication with adjacent ATC units;
  • Communication between pilots;
  • Recording of all communications.


When in instructor mode any WP-PI working position provides:

  • Description of FIR areas of responsibility and control sectors;
  • Entry of maps;
  • Configuration of ATC system parameters.

Air Traffic Control Tower Simulator

Air Traffic Control Tower Simulator is designed to improve the “reality” factor of training and, as a consequence, increase training level of air traffic controllers.

Computer graphics is extensively used to simulate “real” environment..

Tower Simulator can be used both in stand-alone configuration or for complex training in conjunction with ACC Simulator.

Tower Simulator includes:

  • TWR controller instrumental working positions;
  • Terminal area pilot working positions.

Air Traffic Control Tower Simulator is intended for training of controllers in simplified, normal and complex environment surface and simulates air and ground traffic in the terminal area. The technology used allows assessment of airport optimal load conditions (runway, stands, taxiways) to increase airport capacity. Training can be performed in simplified and complex climatic conditions in day or night time, in winter or summer time..

Tower Simulator models some additional equipment in the terminal area, such as Surface Movement Radar (SMR), fire alarms, video cameras, binoculars, runway lights control, etc.

Airport situation can also be assessed from the pilot position.

Tower Simulator includes visualization system implementing sector or circular (360º) overview. Performance of the visualization system is determined by the computer equipment used.

Simulator Constructor tool allows to perform correction of predefined 3D objects, aircraft paint schemes, introduce additional components at runway and stands.

From the Instructor position exercises can be generated both in stand-alone mode and in a complex mode (in conjunction with ACC Simulator). Exercises can be recorded and replayed. All positions are equipped with voice communication system.

Подвижный радиовысотомер ПРВ-16МА предназначен для измерения координат целей (азимут, наклонная дальность, угол места) по данным целеуказаний РЛС или КСА, с которыми сопрягается высотомер. Высотомер ПРВ-16МА сопрягается с радиолокационными станциями П-18МА, MARS-L, П-19МА и комплексами средств автоматизации.
