Over th e last twenty years THOM SO N-CSF has designed, built and installed more than 100 ATC systems to meet th e most varied needs, from an individual airpo rt to a complete nationwide netwo rk. Building on thi s experi ence, AIRCAT is a family of modular systems integrating the detection, tran smission, processing and display equipment and software developped in-house.

There is an AIRCAT system for every req uirement : from purely manual operatio n of a sing le radar in a daylight environment to coverage of a vast area using several radars, wit h automati c multi- radar tracking,

The S IMCAT digital air traffic simulators which derive directly from the A IRCAT systems, are powerfu l tool s for training air traffic controllers and for studying new flight and control procedures.
