Truit, T., Ahlstrom, V., (2001) Development of a generic GMCC simulator interim report (DOT/FAA/CT-TN02/04) Atlantic City International Airport: Federal Aviation Administration William J. Hughes Technical Center.


This document describes the development and current status of a high fidelity, human-in-the-loop simulator for Airway Facilities Maintenance Control Centers and Operations Control Centers. Applications include Event Manager, Maintenance Automation System Software, and a weather display. The simulator, based on existing airspace used in Air Traffic Control simulations, is self-contained and generic in nature. We discuss the advantages and uses for such a simulator and present maps, standard operating procedures, and scenarios.
