Airspace Traffic Generator (ATG)

Example of Pilot Station Ground MAP and User Interface

The Airspace Traffic Generator (ATG), developed by NASA, generates a simulated airspace and controls the movement of aircraft in the 360-degree air traffic control tower simulator, FutureFlight Central. This high-fidelity, real-time aircraft simulation tool provides the capability for individual simulation pilots to maneuver multiple aircraft independently or collaboratively on the ground of an airport and in the airspace, through landing, taxi-in, docking at the gate, pushback, taxi-out, and departure. Aircraft attributes and dynamics are calculated based on ATG stored aircraft-type performance parameters.
