OUR ATM & AIRPORT SERVICES
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. Read more
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.

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 and gain user feedback. From assessing airports capacity to the evaluation of new concepts, systems or operators, simulation allows you to test different scenarios in a realistic way without using your actual platform or compromising operational safety. It helps in the resolution of key business decisions at an early stage. Read more
NEED HELP UNDERSTANDING WHICH AIRFIELD/ATM INVESTMENTS WILL REALLY BE BENEFICIAL?
There are many competing investments that airport and airport ANS provider can make, but which should be the priority and which are going to add the most to capacity, safety and the bottom line? Think Research can help simplify the complex. From our detailed understanding of concepts and technologies, to our ability to rigorously assess operational benefits together with a robust approach to investment appraisal we can help you to understand where to focus your investments to provide the best overall return.

HAVE YOU CONSIDERED THE HUMAN ELEMENTS IN YOUR SYSTEM?
In our industry, we tend to focus on the technical components of our systems and overlook the human elements. At Think, we consider operational staff to be the most valuable asset for any ANSP or airport. Without consideration of how they may be affected by changing traffic conditions, procedures or equipment, operators will soon find themselves operating under unsustainable conditions; which jeopardises safety. The application of Human Factors techniques throughout a project lifecycle is likely to make the difference between long-term successful operations and severe complications. Read more
WHY IS VALIDATION IMPORTANT?
DO YOU NEED TO SHOW YOUR REGULATOR THAT A NEW TECHNOLOGY IS SAFE?
As airports and ANSPs are increasingly seeking to implement new technologies and operational concepts, demonstrating safety over multi-stakeholder and multi-SMSs operations poses a challenge. Think can help you navigate the path to regulatory approval by applying a thorough, yet tailored, risk-based assessment. This approach will help you to understand the safety of your operation throughout the whole development cycle leading to a change; ensure compliance with regulations and standards; and produce required safety cases or support development of a safety management system (SMS).
