The work involved with automating air traffic control using nine subsystems.
The support subsystem consists of a set of processors and off line applications for the generation of adaptation and configuration data of the GEODESYS (Geographical Operation Data System) and for the reduction and exploration of all the data recorded by the PALESTRA system.
GEODESYS: The Adaptation Database Manager enables the different SACTA subsystems to be configured to adjust to the geographical surroundings where they are installed and to the evolution of air space, as well as the different operative procedures for each one of them. It also makes maps that are viewed by the controllers in Control Positions. Furthermore, it is the tool that contains the technical parameterisation.
Through this application, SACTA can operate in aeronautical environments as different as the Peninsula and the Balearic or Canary Islands. Likewise, reliable simulations have been made of air spaces in Germany, Hungry, Greece and the United Kingdom.
This tool has enhanced capabilities for information capture from external sources and information distribution to interested users.
Data analysis programmes: This is a group of applications used to operate and analyse the data recorded when the system is running. It allows for both the reproduction of past situations and the operational statistics for components, subsystems or traffic. Specific applications exist for surveillance, flight plans, supervision and weather and flight data.
The integration of all these tools is called PALESTRA.
