Training Support Facilities
The training support facilities include the CMATS Pseudo Pilots Rooms, Operational Simulator and Training Systems [OSTS], Ab Initio Simulator and Training System [ASTS] and Part Task Trainers used for skill-specific training. Located at each CMATS Operational Centre, the OSTS will support the initial and ongoing training of air traffic controllers and provides the business continuity function, while the Pseudo Pilots Rooms will accommodate the Pseudo Pilot consoles which simulate air traffic control training scenarios on the OSTS consoles. Located in Melbourne, the ASTS will support initial entry training
Joint Software Support Facility
Located in Melbourne, the Joint Software Support Facility (JSSF) will provide a range of support functions for the Civil Military Air Traffic Management System [CMATS] including test and evaluation, data adaptation, final verification and installation.
Support Platform Space
The Support Platform Space [SPS] will provide a range of support functions for CMATS including Thales software support, fault investigation and software development. The SPS will be co-located with the Joint Software Support Facility on the ground floor of the Melbourne ATSC to provide immediate customer support. These facilities will include the Air Traffic Management Support Group as well as Air Traffic Control, Defence and Contractor support engineers.
Joint Secure Facility
Located within the Brisbane Control Tower Complex, the Joint Secure Facility will provide a secure operating facility to deliver Defence Darwin and Townsville approach services [Secure Mode Operations] and National Airspace Management Operations [NAMO]. Provision of this secure operating environment will require addition of a secure equipment area within the Brisbane OneSKY Equipment Room to support the Defence secure equipment.
Technical Operations Centres
Located on the ground floor of the Brisbane and Melbourne Air Traffic Services Centres, the Technical Operations Centre [TOC] provides system monitoring, system administration and fault reporting management; system recovery using control and monitoring tools; configuration changes and preventive maintenance actions to restore system functionality.
OneSKY Equipment Rooms
The OneSKY Equipment Rooms [OER] are dedicated equipment areas to house CMATS operational equipment. New buildings will house the Melbourne and Brisbane OER. The Perth OER will be a partial build within the existing Air Traffic Services Centre building.
Customer Training Area
Delivered by Thales, the Customer Training Area [CTA] is a refurbished area located within the Thales World Trade Centre in Melbourne. Thales will use this facility to provide CMATS training to both Airservices and Defence personnel. The CTA supports the training element of the Contractor System Verification Facility
Contractor System Verification Facility
The Contractor System Verification Facility [CSVF] houses the training, integration, and testing tools to support CMATS development. A temporary facility located within the Melbourne airport precinct, the CSVF is an important part of verifying CMATS capability in a simulated air traffic control environment as development of the system progresses.
The Melbourne Canteen is a purpose built and serviced staff canteen housed at the Airservices Melbourne Centre. Completed in 2019, relocation of the Melbourne Canteen from the Air Traffic Services Centre makes room for a new CMATS Ab Initio Simulator Training System.BACK TO TOP
