We are proud to announce the new CAST 10 release. Over 200 new features and improvements have been implemented for all modules of the CAST airport simulation suite to support our clients at the airports and in the aviation industry in capacity planning and their digital transformation process.

ARC is pleased to annonce that this year's CAST User Conference will be hosted by Berlin Airport on 03 - 04 Nov 2022. The CAST community can look forward to interesting new CAST features, extensions and case studies. The social program includes an airport tour of the new Berlin Airport, dinner at a traditional Berlin restaurant and many options for networking.

Let’s get ready for lift-off! CAST has made the next step into air: Based on the proven CAST Aircraft platform, ARC’s new product CAST Airspace is widely extending your options in airspace capacity studies, new organization of routes or sectors as well as procedure changes.

Meet ARC at ACI-NA to get further ideas how smart tools and digital transormation allow better decisions and combine an improved passenger experience with cost optimization for operations and infrastructure planning.

ARC`s Ulli Stiller (3rd from left) is representing ARC at the ACI Europe Annual Congress in Rome. The theme of 2022 is “Turning the corner – shaping our new normal” and will focus on the strategies and challenges of regaining impetus and investment as we move forwards through our recovery – and beyond. It is a pleasure for the ARC team to support this with knowledge, experience, and CAST Software & Solutions.

Join us at booth Z3.6178 to talk about the latest trends in aviation and airport planning and operations: Digital Transformation, Real-Time Flow Management, Better Passenger Experience as well as Cost Optimization for Operations and Infrastructure Planning.

ARC is pleased to announce the schedule for the CAST Training Courses planned for 2022. Our trainings include courses for CAST beginners of the corresponding CAST module as well as training options for more advanced users to enhance your skills. We are offering the next trainings remote as webinar courses to make it easier for you to participate even with current travel restrictions.

ARC and Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences with Zurich Airport as an industrial partner just completed the mFund project ‚A-Boost – Next Generation Allocation‘. The goal of the project was to apply machine learning, optimization, and simulation techniques to improve the CAST Software for resource allocation at an airport to better deal with operational uncertainties.

Meet with us at the German Pavillon to discover the 'digital twin' concept with CAST providing airports better infrastructure and capacity planning, allocation and real time process optimization. Integrating data from different sources, predicting and analyzing aircraft and passenger flows and making the results available in visually attractive way is a key step in modern optimization of airport processes. Does your airport have a digital twin yet?

We are pleased to announce ARC's presentation at the inter airport europe 2021 about "Solutions powered by CAST - Simulation-based real time demand prediction for better airport resource planning". As a part of digital transformation the precise CAST prediction technology supports resource planning and proactive, agile management in order to reduce costs and waiting times. Look forward to various success stories from previous implementations.

After another challenging year, we are eager to see our CAST users again! Unfortunately, travel restrictions still make it difficult to meet in person. Thus, we are planning this year's CAST User Conference as webmeeting on 18th Nov 2021. Save the date in your calender now! You can look forward to interesting new CAST features, extensions and case studies, giving you ideas how to improve your simulation studies. Registration will open shortly.

This 3-day event will be the perfect opportunity for airport and aviation professionals and tech leaders to address their needs and exchange knowledge whilst forging partnerships, all to help each other bounce back from the crisis and succeed in today's newly disrupted and competitive world. You can also join online via an enhanced platform for digital content. Schedule your online meeting with us now!

Airport Research Center GmbH and Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences cooperate as research partners in this project to take aircraft stand allocation to a new level. This is made possible by by applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) based data analysis methods to predict the expected schedule variance and anticipate this in stand planning. The project is being funded by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure via mFUND.
