Concept Development

ARE YOU REPLACING YOUR OPERATIONAL SYSTEM?
The thought of replacing an ATM system, either in part or in full, can be daunting. A wide range of different aspects needs to be considered, such as: requirements generation; purchasing; tailoring; validation; verification; and training.

Think Research helps guide ANSPs through this process, making sure at all times that the right jobs are being done at the right time to achieve a safe, acceptable, on-time and on-budget implementation.

Simulation

COULD YOU BENEFIT FROM EMPLOYING SIMULATION ACTIVITIES?
Simulation is a capability at the core of our services. We use it to test ideas, generate evidence of system performance, gain user feedback and train the operators. It allows you to test new concepts, systems or operators in a realistic way without using your actual platform or compromising operational safety

Analytics

CAN YOUR OPERATIONAL DATA DRIVE BETTER DECISION MAKING?
In today’s digital ATM environment one of the most useful tools in understanding your ATM Operations is Analytics. Analytics is the analysis of large quantities of operational data, combining the traditional discipline of Operations Research and modern computing power and capabilities. Through the use of advanced analytical methods Think can help airport and ATM stakeholders make better decisions.

Validation

WHY IS VALIDATION IMPORTANT?
If an organisation is investing in change to their ATM system, it is important to be assured that the changes will deliver the benefits for which they have been designed – otherwise a lot of time, money and effort will have been wasted. Applying a recognised and respected validation methodology will help you ensure that the new system or concept you are developing is fit-for-purpose.

Safety

DO YOU NEED TO SHOW YOUR REGULATOR THAT A NEW TECHNOLOGY IS SAFE?
Increasingly, airports are seeking to implement new technologies and operational concepts that span the airfield and ATM domains. Demonstrating safety in a multi-stakeholder, multi-SMS domain can be challenging. Think Research can help you plot a path to regulatory approval where the solution requires creative interpretation of regulations, standards and a rigorous risk-based approach to safety assurance.

Airspace Change

STRUGGLING TO DECIDE HOW TO PLAN AND PROCURE AN AIRSPACE CHANGE?
The CAA airspace change process is complex and ever evolving. Community opposition to increased traffic and overflights is on the rise. On top of that there are a plethora of potential suppliers of airspace design all offering similar services. How does an airport navigate these challenges and deliver the changes needed to unlock capacity?
