News Note: Eurocontrol activates new Netherlands operations facility

Eurocontrol’s upper-area control center at Maastricht in the Netherlands on November 3 activated its new operations facility, which includes an advanced operator input and display system (ODS). The new color display equipment replaced a monochrome ODS that had been installed in the early 1980s. New “windowing” techniques should allow controllers to get a better view of the en route air-traffic situation.
