On 31 October 2016, Obstacle Surface Planner+ was succeeded by SkySAFE™.


Guaranteeing safe operations through the protection of departure and approach paths is of critical importance to every airport. Transoft Solutions’ SkySAFE™, the successor to Obstacle Surface Planner™, assists with this challenge. The AutoCAD®-based software allows planners to easily control existing or potential obstacles in an airport’s surrounding environment against regulatory guidelines which in turn, helps to ensure maximum safety in all aircraft operations

Generate 3D objects or geographical features

Obstacle Surface Planner™ is developed using user-input and software operation methods that provide the utmost in accuracy with regard to items such as: runway types (lengths and widths), displaced thresholds, differing runway-end elevations, differing longitudinal runway elevations, surface locations and dimensions, and overall 3D depictions based on the location of the Primary Surface/Runway Strip. 


Obstacle Surface Planner+ features include the following, amongst others: 


Runway creation

  • Create as many runway environments as necessary based on FAA Airplane Design Group or ICAO code letter, including single or multiple runway scenarios, parallel runways or intersecting runways

  • Create approach and departure scenarios based on the types of approaches and aircraft approach categories

Building & Object creation

  • Create 3D obstacles using the intuitive ‘Create buildings/objects’ command

  • Import existing 3D models of objects from other CAD based programs

  • Add or import images and geographical information (heightfields) based on topography or terrain

Obstacle Limitation / Clearance Surfaces

  • Create obstacle surfaces and obstacle free zones including: horizontal, conical, approach, transitional and primary surfaces
  • Create automatic contour lines for height intervals as specified by the user
  • Assess obstacle clearance through the “OLS Object Intersection” mode to show object height at surface and/or amount of penetration
  • Create an overview information table for all obstacles in the session
  • Create 3D depictions of penetrating obstacles through 3D surfaces

Administrative controls

  • Change layers and colors to create a CAD-based graphical depiction

  • View surfaces and zones in 2D and 3D using standard orbiting tools
