The ACAMS product is a computer system providing an integrated and homogenous solution to monitoring, control and display requirements of an airport tower.
The ACAMS product is designed around a fault tolerant and modular architecture which can be scaled to suit the functional and capacity requirements of any civil or military tower.
ACAMS takes signals from the related subsystem and provides the associated information (e.g. wind direction/speed etc.) in a user-friendly way on a touch-input monitor. Control of the related sub-system (e.g. RWY lights on/off) can be carried out by means of touch input directly on the monitor screen or by mouse/keyboard
The I-Tower solution:
… decision support information to the Air Traffic Control Operator (ATCO).
The ACAMS system is made up of COTS components with the main processing being performed by high reliability maintenance friendly rack servers.
Industrial IP-based components are used to interface to the various external systems. The components are interconnected using a dualised Ethernet network providing a fault tolerant architecture.
ACAMS client monitors are based on COTS equipment allowing the use of the latest state of the art monitors thereby providing the best Human Machine Interface.
The ACAMS software is implemented using a modular and flexible architecture which allows the HMI to be tailored to an individual customer’s requirement. Step-wise implementation ensures continuous TWR operations without interruptions.
