En-route Aerodrome Real Time Simulator​

A light weight, real-time platform that supports small and medium scale distributed simulations in the following areas:

- ATCO training
- Research & Development
- Validation Activities

The platform simulates En-Route & Approach and Aerodrome operations.


It has all the essential en-route and Tower ATC functionalities and can be easily expanded to integrate more advanced features. It can run on a single laptop (standalone mode) or in a distributed environment across an entire network for any kind of medium-scale simulation scenario. It includes controller working positions and pseudo-pilots working positions. Its modular design enables easy adjustment of the ATC tools setup according to the needs of the scenario.

En-Route Features


En-Route Capabilities

Common Capabilities

Aerodrome Simulator

The airport simulator can replicate three types of controller working environments, Clearance DeliveryGround Movement Control and Tower/Runway Control.

These different roles could be combined in a single position.

Airport Capabilities

Electronic Flight Strips (EFS)

A-SMGCS Route Planning

A-SMGCS Airport Safety Nets for Controllers

Runway Monitoring and Conflict Alerting (RMCA)

Conflicting ATC Clearances (CATC)

Conformance Monitoring Alerts for Controllers (CMAC)


Use Case: Validation In ASPRID

eARTS will be used as simulation platform to validate the results of ASPRID project. Validation test will be organized with the collaboration of several stakeholders representative as: Air Traffic Controller, Drone Pilot, Armed Force and Ground Hadler.
