AR ATC

We are partnering up with the Belgian Air Force in the development of an innovation project around the use of Augmented Reality (AR) for Air Traffic Control (ATC). The goal is to develop a solution to alleviate the issues with the current operation of ATC officers and automate a part of their workflow. In local air traffic control, ATC officers have to coordinate the movements of all aircraft that are in their assigned airspace. An important element to properly coordinate the traffic is to build up situational awareness, which is a mental picture the controller makes of the different aircraft, containing both their current and expected (projected) position. To do this, the officer mainly uses three tools: radar, radio and large binoculars. In addition to the inherent complexity of performing the required checks with each of these tools, this setup creates an inconvenient information loss when switching between these three tools.
