Air Traffic Management (ATM) Automation Systems

What are Air Traffic Management(ATM) Automation Systems?


Air traffic management is a vital part of the everyday running of an airport, making sure planes can land safely in the right place and at the right time. There are several set routes that aircraft can follow and air traffic controllers ensure aircraft remain safe distances from each other during every stage of the process. Air Traffic Management (ATM) Automation Systems have been developed to speed up and automate several processes which are essential to air traffic management. Because of the complex nature of handling air traffic, and the massive amounts of information that is necessary, the introduction of automatic systems has revolutionised the aviation industry.


How can automation improve air traffic management


Air traffic management automation systems can be used to increase efficiency, exchange information and increase safety. ATM systems can handle routine tasks like the collection of flight plan data which was the first use of automated ATM systems that started in the 1950s. Automation increases efficiency in a number of areas, such as optimising the amount of airspace that can be used at one time.


Because of the huge amount of data that affects air travel, systems which can collect this automatically are a huge advantage. Automated Weather Observing Systems fetch accurate meteorological data to enable air traffic controllers to make the best decisions possible. Conflict identification is another major benefit to automation in air traffic control systems. They can also be used to collect and distribute aeronautical data and integrate the data into situational displays. By providing this information in real-time, these systems can improve efficiency and decision-making. Automatic systems can also be a cost-effective solution for airports, allowing them to reduce personnel costs and cut down workload.


Safer skies with automation


One of the main ways that air traffic management automation systems has changed the aviation industry is by dramatically increasing safety in every facet of airport management. Monitoring tools can detect any possible issues such as setting a wrong SSR code or detecting a deviation from the clearance. Automatic systems reduce the risk of human error, which can be a major factor in complex systems like an airport. Automatic warnings, alarms and error messages are another way that these systems can increase safety and mitigate any risks. They can be used to look for any inconsistencies and alert air traffic controllers to adverse situations that may affect visibility. Automatic Dependent Surveillance Technologies also enable airports to become safer, detecting any risks like drones which may affect air travel. Verification tools add an extra layer of safety to airport proceedings too.
