CRDS

CENTRE OF RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT AND SIMULATION

CENTRAL EUROPE’S LARGEST ADVANCED AIR NAVIGATION SIMULATION FACILITY

  • Large-scale simulations with up to 34 controller working positions and 27 pilot working positions
  • 90% human-machine interface (HMI) similarity in the simulation environment
  • Validation in accordance with European Operational Concept Validation Methodology

CRDS is our research, development and simulation centre, and is Central Europe’s largest advanced air traffic management simulation facility. This state-of-the-art platform equips us with a real-time / fast-time simulation capabilities that provide training and a cutting-edge decision making capability to both ANSPs and more broadly, the aviation industry.

Our capabilities:

  • ATM system development and HMI prototyping
  • Validation of new technologies and concept solutions (e.g. Free Route Airspace, Performance Based Navigation, Controller-Pilot Data-Link Communication)
  • Human Factors assessment capabilities
  • Modelling, simulating and analysing unusual, emergency and extreme situations
  • Integrating Remotely Piloted Air Vehicles in civil airspace
  • GENSPACE: ATC Simulation for non-ATCO staff
