Reliable, error-free software is hard to come by, and this is especially true for newer, larger, or more complex programs. CTAS, an air traffic control tool, falls into this category, making it a good candidate for research on error compensation. Specifically, this thesis addresses the issue of thread crashes in one portion of CTAS. We reimplement the thread structure in question around a simpler problem, and develop a failure detector and an accompanying repair mechanism to monitor it. These add-on components provide the application with thread consistency by swiftly and transparently recovering from crashes, thereby yielding a more stable, self-sufficient, and generally more reliable operating environment.
