Laser detection and tracking of aircrafts based systems (LIDARs, LIgth Detection And Ranging systems) are emerging as a critical design trend in development of new generation ATM (Air Traffic Management) paradigms, of which they are the main innovations. A novel laser tracking technology (SKY-Scanner System) capable to detect and track of aircrafts up to at least 6 nautical miles from the Aerodrome Traffic Zone (ATZ) has been proposed. The proposed methodology is considered at the frontier of technological research but it represents the only realistic way to put solid basis for the fabrication of effective radar and lidar integrated systems for incorporation in new generation ATM paradigms. The present paper is mainly focused on the simulation software of the above mentioned system. The simulation software is necessary in order to predict the behavior that the system, which is currently under development, will have. The software consists of two modules: Sim-module and Scen-module, both integrated in a single software package. The Sim-module simulates the mechanical system, the interaction of the laser with atmosphere, and the reflection on the surface of the airplane. The Monte-Carlo method will be used in order to take into account of random variables involved in the system, for example noise, turbulence, and error in mechanical positioning system of the lidar. The Scen-module simulates a scenery in which one or more aircraft will move along trajectories the user will specify.
