Air Traffic Control Taxonomy

The eyes on the ground. The people and systems responsible for preventing collisions and managing ground space such as runways at an airport. A highly sophisticated and intricately tuned field. It should come as no surprise to learn that all these operations tend to generate a lot of data. But what happens to that data? Is it being efficiently used and stored? Chances are it is not. This is where the WAND Air Traffic Control Taxonomy can help! You can organize your documents with ease, train your AI with speed, and begin using your company’s documents and data in no time. As with all our taxonomies, this strong foundation metadata model can be customized to include additional terms related to your specific needs or industry.
