QuestionCan AdvCAT be used for aircraft?
Answer
The AdvCAT, or Advanced Conjunction Analysis Tool, is a tool in STK that has traditionally been used for space-based conjunction assessment. However, it can be used to determine close approaches of any objects in STK - making it perfectly suited for air traffic management applications. With just a few adjustments to the default settings, you can use AdvCAT and STK to determine if planned aircraft routes are too close and if collisions might occur. This capability is particularly relevant with the growing popularity of unmanned vehicles. Watch this video to learn how to start using AdvCAT in your air traffic simulations:
