Adacel to provide USMC with ATC simulators
Adacel Systems will supply the US military with Air Traffic Navigation, Integration, and Coordination System (ATNAVICS) training simulators under a contract from the US Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division. The contract was announced on 28 September.
The ATNAVICS simulators will be used to train US Marine Corps air traffic control (ATC) detachments at ten locations across the US and overseas.
Training will include individual radar ATC training using speech recognition and/or pseudo-pilot capabilities along with the ability to create, edit and save training scenarios.
The ATNAVICS is a stand-alone, portable system designed to provide ATC controllers with realistic hands-on practice to achieve and maintain certifications.
The initial deployments will occur over a twelve month time period. Adacel will also provide three years of system support, operator training and the application of the appropriate Department of Defense Information Assurance Cyber Security protocols.
