ATSEP Communications Data TDD9102
NATS, as an established ANSP, relies on a wide range of data networks to support all of its operational voice, surveillance and flight data systems.
Our experience has enabled us to develop a course that covers the basic principles of data communications and illustrates how these are applied to providing Air Navigation Services. This course covers three areas:
Introduction to Networks
Examines the evolution of LAN and WAN technologies and how networks are designed to meet requirements such as redundancy, time delay and security. Networks are analysed in terms of routers, switches, bridges, gateways and firewalls; the purpose and function of these components is described.
Introduces the fundamentals of data communication including the 7-layer OSI interconnection reference model and TCP/IP. The student will learn how IP addresses and subnet masks are used. During hands-on practical exercises, students will build and troubleshoot a small network of PCs, switches and routers.
National & International Networks
Describes local and global aviation related networks, their characteristics and interfaces. Illustrates Air-Ground and Ground-Ground networks used for Air Traffic Control.
ATSEP Comms Voice TDD9103 This course covers: Transmission paths, Voice Comms, Air-Ground, Voice Comms, Ground-Ground, Recording and Functional Safety.
ATSEP Radio Nav Aids TDD 9104 This course explore subjects like Navigation concepts, Ground Based En-route and terminal Navigation Aids.
ATSEP System Monitoring & Control (SMC) TDD9107 Learn about the equipment and processes that monitor and control one of the busiest air spaces.
