Simulated Environment for Realistic ATC

SERA provides a richer, more accurate training experience while at the same time reducing the manpower needed to achieve it. It is a developed product that is ahead of the curve regarding upcoming ICAO simulated air traffic control environment (SATCE) requirements and regulations.

SERA™ (Simulated Environment for Realistic ATC) is ASTi’s product solution for the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO's) recommendation that flight simulators provide a SATCE (Simulated Air Traffic Control Environment) system. Unlike other solutions on the market, SERA provides aircrew trainees with a truly immersive and fully automated ATC and external traffic environment both in the air and on the ground.

SERA allows crews to receive and read back customized ATC instructions from gate to gate amid traffic that would be present in a typical flight plan, while using speech technology to reinforce proper radio phraseology to new pilots, including those who speak English as a second language. Because SERA fully automates real-world communication demands and the presence of external traffic, the need for an already overburdened instructor to role-play is eliminated along with the impractical training and demands that role-playing requires.

SERA is applicable to every phase of flight training from the novice level through advanced Line Oriented Flight Training (LOFT) scenarios and can be integrated into all levels of flight simulation training devices (FSTDs) from low-level simulators to Level D-certified devices. And thanks to an innovative, sliding-scale pricing model, SERA is affordable for training facilities of all levels and sizes.

The question is no longer, "can it be done?" The question is now: "How can SERA benefit your pilot training programs?"

Pick any flight plan and SERA automatically generates the appropriate traffic & ATC interactions.

SERA's speech recognition engine delivers over 97% word accuracy for native English and English as a Second Language (ESL) speakers.

Outputs AI aircraft in both standards-compliant and vendor-specific formats for easy integration with existing simulators and networks.

SERA's speech recognition models are highly tuned to support over 30 ESL and native English accents.

Supports SID and STAR procedures for over 14,000 airports in more than 200 countries.

Realtime modifications to flight plan due to traffic conflicts, inclement weather, and practice events triggered by pilot/instructor action.
