Lesson objective

LESSON OBJECTIVE

  • Action:

    • Define the format of ATCoach files.

  • Condition:

    • In a classroom environment.

  • Standards:

    • In accordance with the ATCoachTactical Edition PAR Simulator User Manual.


Atcoach files

ATCoach Files

  • ATCoach Files - Introduction. (UM Section 4.1)

  • ATCoach obtains information from several data files in order to run:

    • Function Keys Configuration File.

    • .atcinit File.

    • Radar Type Data File.

    • Site File.

    • Scenario File.

    • Aircraft Model File.

  • To manipulate specific files, the file must be opened with the text editor. This editor is similar to the notepad utility in the Windows environment.

  • The vi (view) editor may also be used, but this is not recommended if you are not familiar with using vi.

  • All files are accessible from the Workspace submenus.

    (Except for the radar data file)

You must be logged in as atcdev to modify any ATCoach file.

ATCoach Files

  • ATCoach Files - Introduction.

_ Underscore. Usually indicates a space between entries is required, however, the symbol is required in some entries.

< >Greater than/Less than. Indicates entry is mandatory.

[ ]Brackets. Indicates entry is optional.

|Pipe. Indicates options within an entry.

#Pound. Not recognized by Unix, this symbol is typically used to enter remarks. (Similar to the REM command used in DOS).

  • File names & Extensions.

    • Scenarios are designed for a specific site. Each Scenario has a filename containing an extension.

    • The three letter extension corresponds to the first three letters of the Site file name.

  • Format and Symbols.

    • Each file has a specific format that must be adhered to.

    • Standard symbols used throughout these files:

EXAMPLES

prob1.gsbcorresponds with gsb.st

prob1.lyb corresponds with lybs.st

prob1.tuz corresponds with tuz.st


Function keys

.

  • The function key "F10" is unavailable for use.

Function Keys

  • Function Keys Configuration File. (UM Section 4.2.6)

  • Any ATCoach command can be assigned with the exception of commands that require additional data from the user (other than aircraft call sign).

  • To program the function key assignments, access the IQAK configuration file via the Workspace menu under IQAK Config.

  • Within the Instructor Quick Action (IQAK) configuration File.

  • Allows the user to program up to 11 function keys for each student position to execute ATCoach commands.

  • Each key is configurable by position, and mode of operation standalone or interactive. (Interactive mode is N/A for APARS).

  • For example, the altitude command may not be assigned to a function key because it requires the user to enter an altitude in addition to the aircraft call sign.


Function keys1

IQAK_CONFIG [Default] | <exercise mode> <position type>

IQAK_DEF <#> <Make> <ATCoach command> <Init Flag>

Function Keys

  • Function Keys Configuration File.

  • Entry Configuration and Definition field formats.

  • EXAMPLE

IQAK_CONFIG STANDALONE FINAL

IQAK_DEF 1 MAKE CENO

IQAK_DEF 2 MAKE CS8NO

IQAK_DEF 3 MAKE CS15NO

IQAK_DEF 4 MAKE CS20NO

IQAK_DEF 5 MAKE CTANO

IQAK_DEF 6 MAKE CTDANO

IQAK_DEF 7 MAKE CTDINO

IQAK_DEF 8 MAKE CTBNO

IQAK_DEF 9 MAKE CMT0NO

IQAK_DEF 11 MAKE CTHENO

IQAK_DEF 12 MAKE CTSNO

  • <exercise mode> Standalone or Network*. *(Network N/A for APARS).

  • <position type> Arrival* or Final. *(Arrival N/A for APARS).

  • <#>Number of Key; up to 11 allowed; 1 - 9 and 11, 12.

  • <Make> Make indicates the button is pressed.

  • <ATCoach command>Any ATCoach command not requiring additional data other than aircraft call sign.

  • <Init Flag>Y or N indicates if the command should be executed during initialization.

Note that the _ does not indicate that a space is required in these entries.


Atcinit file

CS20

  • This example would apply to all scenarios because Begin and End have not been specified for a specific scenario.

.atcinit File

  • Initialization Data File (.atcinit). (UM Section 4.2.4)

Begin ex001.gsb

CS20

End ex001.gsb

Assigns 20 mile scope range for a single scenario (ex001).

  • The .atcinit file contains ATCoach initialization information. It may contain entries for modifying site, scenario, and system parameters at startup.

  • All ATCoach console and controller keyboard system settings can be preset at startup, rather than entering the commands manually after the exercise has started.

  • Since all of these features have initial default settings, the file is not required.

  • The file is not case sensitive, however, site and scenario names must be entered explicitly.

  • The entries can be used for all scenarios or sites on a global basis, or individually by site or scenario.

Begin gsb.st

CS20

End gsb.st

Assigns 20 mile scope range for all associated .gsb scenarios.

  • EXAMPLES

  • Keywords Begin and End are only required if an entry is made for a specific site or scenario.


Radar type data file

Radar Type Data File

  • Radar Type Data File (angpn22.dat/antpn25.dat)

    (UM Section 4.2.5)

  • The radar type data files contain the initialization information that configures the facility’s radar display.

  • Contains multiple parameters to adjust or limit the settings on the display. Examples:

  • Soft panel

  • Intensities

  • Antenna performance

  • Cursors

  • Target tracking performance
