Making ARTAS more resilient and future-proof: new upgrade improves some of the major features

ARTAS V9 screen

EUROCONTROL has recently released a new update of its air traffic management surveillance tracker and server (ARTAS). After more than one year of development and successful trials, the version 9.0.2 brings many new community-sourced features and addresses over 69 issues reported.

Over 25 years ago, EUROCONTROL committed to tackling fragmented European surveillance systems, developed a distributed and interoperable surveillance tracker and server solution to ensure an optimal use of available sensor data. Thanks to a dedicated user-centric approach of the Central ARTAS Maintenance and Operational Support (CAMOS) team, we quickly grew a dedicated community, which helped us direct our efforts and developments.

In March we launched a minor version upgrade that addresses much of our community’s feedback. We have introduced some mitigations for ADS-B issues, a major restructuring of the StaticGeo dataset, structural improvements to the logging system and we have started making the ARTAS application more independent from the underlying operating system.

The 9.0.2 version also introduces further flexibility in the installation process, allowing either to install a desktop environment (GNOME) or to have a head-less system.
