SMART Part Task Trainers allow students to do extensive simulation training without the requirements of operating a full tower or radar simulator. SMART PTTs can be configured in a variety of manners and can be used to train phraseology or tower and radar skills on a variety of devices.
The SMART Phraseology Part Task Trainer allows the student to practice radio communication exercises setup by the instructor. Phraseology exercises provide the student the ability to practice the radio calls necessary for providing aircraft with information and instructions. The student is expected to respond to incoming calls with the correct phraseology, and scores are provided based on the accuracy of the response.
The SMART Tower Part Task Trainer allows the student to exercise skills required for tower controllers in a variety of hardware configurations, including desktop computers, laptop computers, and windows tablets. Tower PTT exercises can be reduced to individual skills, such as clearing aircraft for takeoff, or full simulations including multiple participants. All audio and video can be recorded to the SMART Cloud and reviewed by the student and their instructors.
The SMART Radar Part Task Trainer allows the student to practice controlling traffic from a radar display. Multiple radar systems can be simulated including STARS, CARTS, and other systems. Radar PTT exercises can range from vectoring a single aircraft through a “maze”, to more complex exercises such as merging multiple streams into a single approach. As with the other SMART PTTs, all audio, video, and rule violations can be recorded to the SMART Cloud and reviewed by the student and their instructors.
