BEST Radar Exercise Data Preparation

Data Preparation

The Data Preparation suite gives users full control over their data:

  • Create airspace maps with airways, airfields, fixes, etc.
  • Create airspace procedures, including SIDs and STARs
  • Create exercises based on flight plans
  • ARINC 424 data importer
  • Script scenarios to reduce load on pseudo pilots
  • View exercise without running the simulator
  • Modify aircraft and vehicle performance data
  • ASTERIX and AFTN data importer


Comprehensive selection of FDP features:

  • Integrated CPDLC capability between controller displays and pseudo pilot HMI
  • Arrivals Manager (AMAN)
  • Script scenarios to reduce load on pseudo pilots
  • Simulated OLDI capabilities for managing coordination and transfer of control between adjacent sectors and FIRs
  • Dynamically group/ungroup sectors during an exercise
  • FDP alerts such as APW, STCAs and ACAS
FDP Radar Display
