Altran assists NATS with leading-edge visualisation tools

Long-term Altran client NATS has developed a new innovation facility called SPACE, to support and enable innovative thinking and problem solving and provide the technology required to back up ideas. Altran is delighted to have assisted NATS with the development of two state-of-the-art visualisation tools that feature in this exciting new facility.

The first is an adapted gaming engine, where an individual uses gesture control in front of a large screen to move around airspace in real time. The second is a tool that was built on the Altran engine to allow a user to walk around airspace and simulate safety related incidents. Both tools came from ideas sessions and were rapidly created and deployed for use as part of the SPACE capability.

Videos of both visualisation tools in action can be viewed by following the link below to the NATS blog feature on the development of SPACE.
