BEST 2D Tower

2D Tower

The 2D tower trainer has a number of display management tools that allow the controller to manipulate the view of the airfield displayed. This includes the ability to restrict the view to reflect the prevailing weather conditions. A conflict alert facility can be enabled that results in a visual indication when the distance between aircraft prevents further manoeuvres.

An alternative 2D display supports Runway Incursion Monitoring and Collision Avoidance System (RIMCAS) which checks if an inbound aircraft is in conflict with any ground aircraft and/or any ground vehicle currently inside the defined RIMCAS area. Stage 1 and 2 alerts as well as low visibility conditions are supported.

A Shape Editor application allows the user to create realistic aircraft shapes. In the absence of a user-defined shape a default aircraft shape is presented.
