The required solution will capture/record/synchronize/replay the following from training simulations and/or scenarios: Student ôs radar video monitor/scope Tower Simulation System (TSS) video panels Audio between the student and remote pilot operators (RPOs), and Keystrokes entered by the student and the RPOs The required solution would also record and replay student assessments in three parts: 1. Capture/record video, audio, and keystrokes (if applicable). a. Record both student and Remote Pilot Operators (RPOs): i. Estimated @ 2448 Performance Assessments annually for Tower ii. Estimated @ 3078 Performance Assessments annually for En Route iii. Estimated @ 1260 Performance Assessments annually for Terminal 2. Send to recording station to house and store recordings a. Store video and audio feeds for all Performance Assessments until (TBD) 3. Replay student Performance Assessment a. Replay Performance Assessments on simulation system used for assessment. b. Evaluators debrief students on their assessment using the replay to verify scoring. SCOPE: The scope of this effort includes the hardware/software solution, installation of the hardware/software solution to the appropriate ATC systems, testing, implementation, training FAA staff on how to use, maintain, and troubleshoot the equipment/software, post implementation technical support and training, and data storage. PRELIMINARY REQUIREMENTS: The FAA ôs required solution must: Provide the capability to record data Provide the capability to store data for a set period of time (TBD) Provide the capability to retrieve data Provide the capability to play back data on the simulation system used for assessment Provide the capability to duplicate data Provide the capability to erase data During playback, provide the capability to advance an authorized user-selectable rate Provide the capability of Fast Forward and Rewind Provide the capability to go to a specific time within the selected audio/video playback Provide the capability to pause the playback Provide the capability to resume playback at the same position in the recording after the pause feature is deselected Provide the capability to stop a playback Provide each workstation the capability to route recorder audio and video to audio/video selected output devices Provide site-configurable visual malfunction alerts Provide site-configurable audible malfunction alarms SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS: The FAA requests responses to the questions contained in Attachment 1, FAA Academy Audio/Video/Keystroke Record/Playback Project RFI.
