Airtopsoft is a software company developing, maintaining, and selling the AirTOp fast-time simulation software, today’s leading air traffic complexity assessment and modelling tool.
Our customers consist mainly of major ANSPs, airport authorities, airlines, research labs and consulting companies globally, which aim at assessing air traffic and airport complexity, assessing controller workload, and assessing and improving airspace and airport capacities.
AirTOp has been developed from scratch since 2006, when the company started operating. The development has been done through prototyping and industrialization phases over the last 10 years, and in close interaction with our customers and potential customers, continuously providing us operational requirements, experiences and feedback (see section “AirTOp reference” below). It has been developed following a very flexible and modular architecture (API, object and multi-agent based), and using open-standards as much as possible, allowing Airtopsoft to offer short development cycles and fast deliveries of software updates.
AirTOp’s roadmap is determined by its Customers & Users. Formal processes have been implemented as early as 2008.
The ATS User Group is chaired by existing customers and meets yearly.
Formal requests for the roadmap priorities (addition of new features, creation of new modules) are issued by customers and consequently implemented by Airtopsoft.
Today, AirTOp users consist of:
DFS (D), NATS (UK), ENAV (IT), NLR (NL), Skyguide (CH), ENAIRE (SP) , ATMB-East (China), ATMB_South-West (China) ), ATMB-Central (China), ATMB-East (China), FAA, CAAS Singapore, DANS Dubai, GCAA (UAE), HungaroControl (H).
