Virtual Tower

 

VirtualTower

The virtual tower as a part of The Complex of Prototyping Tools is intended to simulate the real and the synthetic view from an airport tower

The figure below demonstrates a virtual tower system. The lower row of monitors displays a model of the real view that receives data directly from the air traffic model and takes into account the simulated time of the day and weather conditions at the airport. The upper row of monitors displays the synthetic view that receives data from the ground surveillance model and the video surveillance system at the airport
