RDPS Short Term Conflict Alert (STCA)

The Radar Data Processing System for Icelandic Civil Aviation Administration (ICAA) was upgraded with a Short Term Conflict Alert (STCA).  STCA is designed to give warnings to air traffic controllers when the distance between two aircrafts is below separation minimum (loss off separation).  The STCA and the warning user interface was developed in close cooperation with air traffic controllers, and has already proved useful and provides additional layer of safety to ICAA service.
