Flight Information Display
and Situational Awareness
for ATC and AFIS

Enhanced Safety and Efficiency

Romeo 5 enables airports and Air Navigation Service Providers to improve safety and operational efficiency while remaining cost effective.

User-friendly interface

The user-friendly interface of Romeo5 allows users to access the system functions effectively and intuitively with minimal training required.

Recording and Playback

Romeo5 offers a 30-day video playback feature for easy incident investigation or analysis. Additionally, our optional cloud-based replay tool provides unlimited playback access to all recorded cloud data.

Enhanced situational awareness

Operational personnel, ATCOs and AFISOs have unmatched situational awareness of ground and airborne activity, assisting with workload reduction and enhancement of the service provided.

Customisable system

The customisable features allow Romeo5 to be tailored to meet the specific needs of the service provider.

Real-time Data

Romeo5’s ability to process vast amounts of real-time data ensures efficient handling of increasing air traffic and data demands.

A robust FID for Air Traffic Control and Aerodrome Flight Information Service, Romeo5 is designed for safety and maximum usability.

Romeo5 is an ATM-grade Flight Information Display (FID) solution which is capable of displaying aircraft position targets in real-time. This provides Air Traffic Control Officers or Aerodrome Flight Information Service Officers with the ability to have enhanced situational awareness of activity on and around an aerodrome, and provision of generalised traffic information to aircraft on frequency.

Romeo5 can be configured to receive ADS-B data from a local antenna, plus other sources of surveillance including radar or MLAT data feeds. Romeo5 provides a comprehensive and unified view of the airspace or airport ground layout on its dedicated hardware platform. Additional browser based access allows for monitoring and information away from operational positions.

Romeo5 FID can be successfully implemented worldwide. In the UK, Romeo5 is compliant with CAA CAP670 requirements.

The safety benefits that accrue from the enhanced situational awareness gained by introducing a FID are now well recognised. Romeo5 can revolutionise your operation, providing enhanced safety measures, optimised operations and improvements in overall efficiencies.


1. What are the benefits of Romeo5 over other ADS-B solutions?

Romeo5 has been designed specifically for use by ATC and AFIS to enhance situational awareness. It provides reliability and accuracy of information displayed. The display is designed to be user focussed, with clear non overlapping labels and adjustable day/night and brightness levels. Romeo5 displays data received from dedicated receiver(s), ensuring full integrity of data and also includes QNH Altitude/Level conversion.

2. What data is Romeo5 capable of receiving and displaying?

Romeo5 is able to receive any transmitted ADS-B data via a number of available receivers. Such ADS-B may be received from aircraft, ground vehicles and UAVs. In certain antenna configurations it is also able to receive and display FLARM data.
In the UK and the USA it is also compatible with uAvionix Managed Airspace Surveillance Service providing additional data integrity, enhanced coverage and redundancy.
The FID allows the user to select the actively used data sources and provides clear indication of the active status of each source.

3. Is Romeo5 approved for use in the UK?

Romeo5 has been designed to meet or exceed the requirements within CAA CAP670 requirements, and is declared as compliant by DataBeacon.

4. What level of customisation is available within Romeo5?

Romeo5 is designed and tailored for the specific requirements of the airport. Local mapping with airspace and other required layers is included and configured during the initial setup, with future updates included.

5. What information is displayed on target labels?

Each target can display Callsign/Registration, Altitude/Level, Speed, Heading, Squawk, Type Code. History Trailers and predict vector lines are also available.

6. Does Romeo5 run locally?

Yes, Romeo5 offers the flexibility to be run both locally and in a cloud environment as a native web application, providing a robust backup or mobile contingency system. This local setup ensures uninterrupted operations and immediate access to critical data even in the event of internet connectivity issues or other external disruptions.

7. What is the recording and playback functionality?

All data is retained for a period of 30 days, allowing playback and export of any period. Optionally, we offer a data cloud-based replay tool with unlimited storage capability.

8. How cost effective is Romeo5?

Romeo5 has been designed to be a cost-effective alternative to expensive radar systems. Romeo5 runs on a simple dedicated hardware device and requires only simple antenna installation to become operational. The system, once running requires very little to no ongoing engineering input. This enables Romeo 5 to be adaptable to suit all scale of service provider.

9. How quickly can Romeo5 be deployed?

From commencement of an agreement, we are able to complete all customisation, prepare, test and deliver Romeo5 to you within a timescale of 6-8 weeks.

10. What support is provided once Romeo5 is operational?

Throughout the contract period, Romeo5 is supported by the dedicated DataBeacon support team, who will provide comprehensive hardware/software and user support as required. All change requests to mapping are included.
