MARS - MULTI-PLATFORM ATC REHOSTING SOLUTION
The Multi-platform Automation Re-hosting Solution, known as MARS, is a cutting-edge, versatile workstation. Few professions demand as much multitasking as air traffic control, where controllers monitor multiple data streams and work as many as eight pieces of technology simultaneously. Retired air traffic controllers worked with Raytheon Intelligence & Space to design a workstation that enhances user productivity and efficiency.
Open architecture to optimize workstations
MARS has an open architecture, configurable to optimize existing workstation usage without impacting current operational requirements. MARS is host application, monitor, and input device (keyboard and mouse) agnostic and configurable for the requirements of a specific system. Users can customize their layout without the hassle of unnecessary architecture changes and minimal downtime. MARS provides a non-intrusive solution requiring no software installations on existing applications.
MARS consolidates up to eight applications onto commercial-off-the-shelf monitors and input devices, reducing physical clutter. A user no longer has to look at eight different monitors, and use eight different keyboards and trackballs to perform their duties.
MARS leverages touch technologies to employ intuitive motions from smartphone and tablet applications to minimize retraining. MARS supports both touch enabled and non-touch enabled applications on the same monitor, ultimately, offering a customized solution for each individual end-user.
