Air Traffic Communications and Information Technology
Present day aviation and air traffic control is unthinkable without efficiently functioning highly reliable communication and navigation systems. These systems bear a heavy responsibility for ensuring aviation safety.
Air traffic control and dissemination of necessary information takes place by aviation communication systems which ensure safe and smooth flow of air traffic in the air space.
The navigation systems provide information on an aircraft's position and enable precise navigation during the whole flight – from its take-off from the departure aerodrome to the landing at the destination aerodrome.
Surveillance equipment and systems are used for the surveillance of the aircraft and their traffic in the air. The most traditional surveillance devices are radars but, alongside, new technologies are taken into use as well – ADS-B and MLAT systems.
During their studies the students of the speciality of Aviation
Communication and Navigation Systems Management (the technicians and engineers-to-be)
learn different aviation related disciplines, physics and mathematics. They
acquire speciality knowledge of electrical engineering and radio technology,
electronics, information technology, data processing and of many other fields.
During the whole course of studies the practical skills in the management of the
systems, the ability to evaluate technical parameters and the skills in testing
the devices and equipment are developed.
