Since its inception, SkyVisual has become the industry standard Human-Machine Interface since being approved by ATCOs. SkyVisual is renowned for being fully operational for ACCs, Approaches and Towers, making it a versatile HMI solution for ATCOs.
HMI Systems Developed With Air Traffic Control Professionals
Through listening to the demands of ATCOs, SkySoft developed the SkyVisual solution to offer an ergonomic, swift-response system with easy and intuitive access to data. Key functions demanded by ATCOs, which are offered by the SkyVisual system include transparent windows, multi-measurement vectors and double zooming. Other considerations such as flexible graphic tools, data linkage and cost drive ATCOs to demand permanent improvements to their HMI system from a common basis.
The benefits of using the SkyVisual system are numerous. Because SkyVisual was developed specifically for the ATCOs who use it, SkyVisual is a user-centric HMI. By removing all non-functional tools, SkySoft have developed technology which offers natural adoption and cost efficiency.
Furthermore, because of the smooth introduction of new technology and intuitive nature of the design, users need only limited training before becoming competent in using the technology.
SkyVisual System for ATCOs
By using standardised off-the-shelf hardware, the SkyVisual system is simple to integrate into existing ATC equipment. Furthermore, standardised hardware ensures limited cost, open architecture , high performance and easy maintenance. This also ensures and rapid start-up and fast, accurate ATCO analysis as well as low memory and CPU usage to make sure that all system run at an optimum speed. Although using standardised hardware fine tuning options in the operational systems offers comprehensive adaption to local airspaces ensuring worthwhile ROI.
