ATS 3.18 CONTROLLER TOOLS

Controller Tools have evolved as ATS systems have developed and additional functionalities have been conceived and implemented. Initially, repetitive or time consuming tasks were replaced through the introduction of tools, but technology has allowed for the development of tools that replace or enhance controller tasks.

The introduction and usage of Controller Tools (CTs) can potentially have a negative effect on a controller’s workload. Often the well meaning intentions of software engineers and system designers are misguided and tools that were intended to help can sometimes hinder those asked to use them.


IFATCA Policy is:

Controller Tools (CTs) are functions of an ATM system that enhance a controller’s ability to meet the objectives of ATS. They provide information that assists controllers in the planning and execution of their duties, rather than dictating a course of action.
