3 RECORDING/REPLAY FUNCTIONALITY

3.1 SCOPE

Recording and Replay:

- collect and store operational data,

- produce and manage archives of this data,

- replay a recorded air situation with or without voice replay synchronisation.

Only the Radar Controller positions are recorded. Technical Supervisor and FDO are not recorded.

The recording and archiving are performed on the REC servers. To replay a position, an operational position is stopped and then started up in replay mode from the Technical Supervisor position (see ref [2] How to start a controller position in Replay Mode).

3.2

RECORDING

3.2.1

RECORDED DATA

The following data is recorded in recording periods of 24 hours.

- Surveillance Sensor data received on the LAN (local and system tracks, radar alert data (STCA,MSAW,AIW,DAIW,AFDA) and weather data),

- distributed data: QNH/TL, status of servers, current operational sector allocation,

- the Active Flight Plans (Creations, Modifications, Terminations, Correlations) from the operational DP,

- the display parameters of each Controller Position:

- Range and off-centring of the radar window,

- Size and Position of the windows opened on the controlled screen,

- Code filters selected on the Controller Position,

- Level Filter selected on the Controller Position,

- Maps selected on the Controller Position,

- Scale vector, history, brightness, speed vector and label character size selected.

Note: ADS-C and CPDLC data is not recorded.

Note also that the Supervisor window, Document Viewer window and Browser window positions and sizes are not recorded. Hence on replay these windows are not replayed in any form. Also, the actual vertical size of the CPDLC Editor window is not replayed i.e. only the minimum height is displayed.

The two REC servers record the above data independently and either server can be used for replay.

3.2.2 PRESENTATION

At regular intervals, the recording function records the data listed above. This is called a snapshot. Between these snapshots only the update of the data is stored. A replay session will always start at a date and time corresponding to a snapshot.

This data is stored on disk. Each REC computer manages multiple storage disk areas: one contains the data of the current recording period, the others contain the data of the previous recording periods.

The recording function maintains a fixed number of recording periods on the disk. Older periods are deleted as required to maintain this number.

3.3 ARCHIVING

The archiving function copies recorded data from the disk to an external disk (external memory stick or external hard disk). It can be done automatically or manually.

Archiving from each REC server’s hard disk to external disk occurs:

Automatically, at an off-line configured archiving time

Manually on operator request.

The archive media can be reused until the media is full. If it is not possible to perform a complete archive (24 hours), an error will be displayed and the archive operation will stop. At this point the user will be prompted to insert a new media device. The current device should be ejected, and the operation should be retried (by invoking the “Retry” command) using the new media device. The archive will continue from where it was suspended.

3.3.1 AUTOMATIC ARCHIVING

The archiving function manages multiple recording areas of the hard disk. One is used to record the data of the current recording period (n); the others keep the data of the previous periods.

When an automatic archive occurs (daily), at the end of the recording period at the pre-defined hour (n), the archiving function:

Removes any areas older than the maximum number of days old.

Creates the next available recording area.

Switches to the current disk area, so that the recording function records the data of the new period (n+1) on the newly created disk area.

Archives the finished period (n) and any earlier recording periods which have not yet been archived.

In this way, there is always X days worth of recordings present on the disk, for potential replay. If an archive is not performed for more than X days the recordings will be lost.

The external disk media can be left connected for a few days (as explained in section 3.3) i.e. until it is full, but it must be actioned as prompted and changed within 24 hours of it being reported as full.

It is recommended that archiving be carried out during a low traffic period so as not to disturb the operational centre.

3.3.2 MANUAL ARCHIVING

Using the recording interface the operator may perform a manual archive; for example to archive all the data on the X disk areas that has not yet been archived. Unlike the automatic archive, it does not cause the recording to start recording on a different area. A manual archive can be performed at any time.

3.3.3 ARCHIVE CHECKING

When archiving begins, the contents of the disk will be checked to see that a usable external disk for archiving is present (i.e. mounted). If the disk is not present or not usable then the archiving will not begin. A warning message will be displayed. It is possible to:

retry the archive,

abort the archive or

force the archive to continue (this option is not available if the archive number is close to the current archive number, allowing the system to prevent overwriting of external disk that contain data less than a certain of days old).

3.3.4 ARCHIVING INSTRUCTIONS

On a daily basis the recording operations include:

- checking that the automatic archiving has been done (if it has not, then analyse the cause, change the media for another one, and execute a manual archive command via the RECORDIO interface),

- Unmounting then extracting the media (if necessary), noting the reference of the recorded period, and inserting and mounting another one.

It is recommended that archiving be carried out during a low traffic period so as not disturb the operational centre.

It is recommended that the external disk used for the archiving is virus checked before use in the TopSky-ATC system and that all external disks used for archiving purpose are not used for other purpose.

3.3.5 ARCHIVING CONFIGURATION

Data is archived on an external disk in exactly the same format as it is recorded onto the hard disk of the recording servers.

Each day of recorded data corresponds to a directory at the top level of the disk. At the next level down each directory corresponds to an hour of recorded data and are numbered 00-23.

In each recorded one-hour directory the following kinds of data is recorded:

snapshots once a minute for each operator position, with update files between

flight data snapshots once a minute, with update files between

track streams (local tracks and system tracks)

miscellaneous other data streams (e.g. server status indicators)

Archiving can continue until they are physically full i.e. up to the point where it is not possible to archive the complete day’s recording to the archive media.

REPLAY

3.4.1

PRESENTATION

The replay functionality enables the playback of an air situation on a specified CWP by using archived data previously recorded. If the replay period selected is within the period still stored on the REC servers’ hard disks, then the recording can be replayed from disk.

The replay can be performed in two different modes:

- passive mode,

- interactive mode.

Passive mode does not permit user intervention.

In this mode, the recorded data listed in section 3.2.1 is replayed.

Remark: To be effective, passive mode needs the presence of all recorded data during the period to replay:

- If both operational DPs failed or were switched off during the period of the recording the operator will be made aware of this by a message in the Top Bar. After this message, if the FDP server was not available during recording, then each CWP sends a snapshot of its local active flight plans and any updates that have been made locally. Thus the AFPL list is accurate, even if the FDP server was not available during the recorded period being replayed.

- The Controller Position to be replayed should remain RUNNING during the replayed period. If the Controller Position was turned OFF during the replayed period the operator will be made aware of this by a message in the Top Bar. After this message the passive mode replay is no longer correct.

- The failure of or switching off a single DP will not have any effect on replay

- If data is not found when using one of REC servers e.g. if it was off or failed during the replay period selected, the other REC server should be used for replay.

- Offline files (including maps) of the Controller Position to replay must be the same as during the replayed period.

Interactive mode permits the use of track related and operator functions.

In this mode, only the tracks and weather data are replayed.

3.4.2 REPLAY OPERATIONS

To perform a replay session, the following actions must be performed:

- start the target position of the replay session in replay mode via the Technical Supervision,

(If necessary update the offline files to retrieve the original environment of the replayed period),

- prepare replaying data via the XREPLAYIO interface:

- select replaying period,

- select replaying duration,

- select replaying media,

- select replay position source or interactive mode. Note that only those positions, which were running during the selected period, are available for replay,

- select voice channel (if voice replay is available),

(Refer to the history of the computers statuses to select the period.)

- start the replaying session via the XREPLAYIO interface,

- control the replaying session via the XREPLAYIO interface:

- change speed,

- pause,

- stop,

- continue.

Note that:

- when selecting date/time for a replay session, the replay session will start at the earliest snapshot time corresponding to the selected session. Because of this it is important that the operator checks the starting date of the recorded period on each media, otherwise an error message will be displayed and the replay will not begin,

- the replay will work even if the voice replayer (if available) is off,

- the voice replay (if available) is only possible in passive replay.

7 XREPLAYIO INTERFACE

The XREPLAYIO interface is dedicated to replay functions. It is integrated with the CWP (see section

7.6).

7.1

DEFAULT PICTURE

The default picture is the RCP screen composed of:

- the pointing device symbol,

- top menu bar.

7.2 INPUT ACTIONS

Clicking on a field in the PREPARATION or CONTROL windows enters field edit mode and an editing cursor appears. This cursor is not the pointing device symbol. It is located at the first character of the field. A second click in the field locates the editing cursor on the character under the pointing device symbol.

 

[KBD]

To change the current field, type the new value with the keyboard.

[TAB]

If the entered or field value is correct, you can skip to the next field by pressing the [TAB] key.

[SHIFT-TAB]

You can access the previous field by pressing the [SHIFT-TAB] keys. The current field is no longer in edit mode and is reset to the displayed value and the next (the previous) field is now in the edit mode.

[PD]

You can also access any other field by clicking with the pointing device on the new desired field.

7.3

SCROLL BAR

The scroll bar is composed of an up-arrow push-button, a down-arrow push-button and a slider box. The arrow push-buttons allow the page list to be scrolled by one page (source position). The slider box is a push-button that enables the pages list to be scrolled quickly. Its height is representative of the length of the overall list in the following way.

The same ratio exists between:

- the length of the overall list and the length of the displayed page, and

- the height of the scroll bar (arrow push-buttons excepted) and the height of the slider box.

This gives a visual indication of the amount of hidden information. However, the height of the slider box cannot be reduced below a minimum size (regardless of the number of source positions) in order to be able to click it.

The ways to adjust the position of the window in the overall list are:

1. Clicking the up-arrow or down-arrow push-button of the scroll bar to scroll the list up or down accordingly, by one source position. The list cannot be scrolled up if the first source position in the list is displayed, and, correspondingly, cannot be scrolled down if the last source position in the list is displayed.

2. Clicking in the slider box and releasing the pointing device button and then dragging the slider box in the scroll bar, and then clicking again to end the dragging.

3. Clicking in the scroll bar above or below the slider box to display the previous page or next page, if any, accordingly.

7.5.2 REPLAY SOURCE AREA

This area permits the selection of the source and mode of the replay session.

In the Position List, the sources of the replay session are selected via a list window (the list only shows those positions which were running during the selected time period):

- the name of the recorded position (for passive mode),

- the interactive mode.

Normally the off-line data of all the recorded positions is the same; if the data has been modified then the changed files should to be made available on the replay position for display in passive mode.

In this area two push-buttons are active:

APPLY

To validate the replaying source and target.

RESET

To reset the replaying source and target in order to be able to make another one or if voice synchronisation (if available) was performed and the position is no longer required for further replay then the push-button must be selected to force a logout from the Voice replay PC.

The APPLY action is only possible if the date and support areas have been validated and the source replayed has been selected.

The RESET action is only possible if the APPLY action has been previously done.

7.5.3 COMMAND AREA

This area validates all the data of this window and contains two push-buttons:

VALIDATE

To validate the data preparation.

7.6.1 DATA AREA

This area displays the following parameters of the replay session selected in the Replay Preparation Window:

- starting date and time,

- duration,

- source position.

7.6.2 SPEED AREA / EXPORT REPLAY / PRINT

This area allows the replay speed to be modified between values 0.1 and 3.0. Normal speed is 1.0. The current value is displayed in the speed field. The push-button APPLY validates the modification.

The modification of the value is made via a scrollbar. If the speed is changed to another value other than 1.0 the voice replay (if voice synchronisation is available) will stop. A new replay preparation will be needed if the voice replay is subsequently required.

The export replay uses a toggle button; it is initially set to ‘OFF’ export replay deactivated. On selecting this button its text changes to ‘ON’ and the button displays as a depressed button, at this point the export replay is activated. To deactivate the export replay select the toggle button, and the display returns to initial setting. The export replay output filename includes the start date/time and the end date/time. The file is replayable on a Microsoft Windows compatible personal computer.

While performing a replay there is an option to print a snapshot of the replay screen. This can be done by clicking on the PRINT button. It assumes that a suitable printer is configured in the system.
