Sensors for a Precise Air Traffic Network

  1. Ground-to-Air Data Link

    Real-time Traffic Rebroadcasting: ATOM can rebroadcast real-time traffic to airborne PilotAware systems, improving safety within the ATOM station coverage area.
  2. Accurate

    Data Collection and Integrity: ATOM stations play a crucial role in the collection, sanitization, and maintenance of aircraft traffic data integrity.
  3. Interoperable EC detector

    Interoperability: ATOM seamlessly detects a wide range of systems, including ADS-B, FLARM, PilotAware, FANET+, and MLAT Mode-S aircraft. Access this valuable data through an intuitive RADAR screen and GRID database.
  4. Connected

    Secure and Connected: ATOM's encrypted link to the GRID network enables over-the-air updates, station networking, and scheduling to enhance aircraft tracking in remote and mountainous areas.
  5. Situational Awareness System

    Flight Information Display Compatibility: ATOM station data can feed a Flight Information Display in compliance with the CAA supplement to CAP670 and use phraseology as described in the CAP419 supplement.
  6. Community

    ATOM's interconnected network enables seamless communication between multiple base stations, effectively overcoming obscuration caused by mountains, populated areas, or other obstacles. Additionally, if a station goes offline, nearby stations will compensate for the loss, ensuring redundancy and continuous coverage.
